#4674 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

"Weblog" is additional unnecessary terminology

"Weblog" is additional unnecessary terminology. It is used in quite a few places in wp-admin/ but is not the term used on . The term "blog" should be used throughout.

I will leave "Just another WordPress weblog" b/c that seems sacred ;-)

Agreed. Weblog is an old term. The following files contain occurrences of the term 'weblog':

  • wp-admin/install.php
  • wp-admin/upgrade-schema.php
  • wp-admin/upgrade-functions.php
  • wp-admin/options-general.php
  • wp-content/themes/default/sidebar.php
  • wp-includes/comment.php
  • xmlrpc.php

Oh, by the way, that list is from WP 2.2.1, but I'm sure it's more-or-less the same in trunk.

Replying to foolswisdom:

Nazgul, did you not update xmlrpc.php on purpose?

No. For some reason it didn't get included in my patch. Must have made an error while creating it.

New and improved patch attached.

What is with this message?

Sorry, you can not post on this blog or category.

WordPress doesn't support per-category publish privs (that I know of!)

Sorry, you are not allowed to post on this blog.

Also tells them it is a permissions issue, not an ability issue that might be misinterpreted as a technical error.

Also changed two instances of "Blog" to "blog" (capitalization didn't make sense in that usage).
