Updated patch for this.

#1 @dilipbheda

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

#2 @SergeyBiryukov

  • Component changed from Administration to Help/About
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.2
  • Summary changed from URL is wrong in admin bar section to Update Support Forums URL in Toolbar and Help tabs

Indeed, https://wordpress.org/support/ now lists HelpHub articles, the support forums are at https://wordpress.org/support/forums/.

The old URL is used in Help tabs, they will need be updated as well.

For the admin bar though, maybe we should keep the current URL and change the link text to Support instead?

@SergeyBiryukov better is to change title as you suggested. In support page it will show all details.

Thank you for the updated patch, @mukesh27.

There are a lot of locations throughout core that link to https://wordpress.org/support/. They should either be updated to link to the forums where appropriate, or change the link text to something more accurate.

Hello @pento, @mukesh27 and @SergeyBiryukov
Thanks for the response.
It would be great if you will change just text.
Thanks.

Help: Update support forum links.

There are a lot of places in Core that link to https://wordpress.org/support/ for the support forums, but that's now the URL for HelpHub. The new forums link is https://wordpress.org/support/forums/.

There are a lot of places in Core that link to https://wordpress.org/support/ for the support forums, but that's now the URL for HelpHub. The new forums link is https://wordpress.org/support/forums/.

This is a follow-up to [45140], which changed the links in help tabs.
