+1 for this proposal. This would be very helpful to the user to understand uncategorized default categories. I would just notice the attached help tooltip design doesn't fit WordPress standards

@lauraspg, it's just for sample i know it's not fit for design that's why i added ui-feedback for this ticket.

Still core developer and design team doesn't check this ticket.

I discussed with @pento and @melchoyce about the wording, design and other concerns on making a change here. It turns out, adding tool-tip isn't a great idea because it doesn't go well with overall design standards of WordPress.

Adding a simple text on the category page make sense. I thought about linking the default category text to wp-admin/options-writing.php but we may run into a permission related issue, so we dropped that idea.

@Codestor i think we have to think new option so in feature we can do that also and tooltip is an option.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch dev-feedback ui-feedback removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.0
  • Owner set to pento
  • Status changed from new to assigned

We don't use tooltips in core: while there's potentially a discussion to be had on that, it's well outside the scope of this ticket.

Let's go with 44961.diff to fix this ticket.

#7 @pento

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

In 43666:

Taxonomies: Improve description of default category behaviour.

Add some extra information to the Categories list screen, explaining why the default category doesn't have a Delete button.

Props Codestor.
Fixes #44961.
