#47235 assigned defect (bug)

i18n: "Back to..." vs. "Return to..."

Description

In WordPress dashboard some pages have links at the bottom of the screen linking back other screen pages.

The wording is inconsistent, in some cases the we use "Back to..." in other cases we use "Return to..."

Check those links:

Note: some of those strings has "←" char prefix, other use "←" char, but most don't use any prefix.

We need to set a standard.

Hi @audrasjb thanks for the refresh, reviewing I see you've updated the 'Go to the Themes/Plugins screen' strings in the paused_themes/plugins_notice functions. To my understanding these notices will take over their respective screens before you even get to view the Themes/Plugins screens so the term 'Return' could be incorrect/misleading as you weren't previously on those pages. To me 'Go to the' is more valid for both the cases where they were on the screen before hand and some where they were coming to the screen for the first time but instead got this notice.

I hope that makes sense, and I could be wrong. If the only way those notices appear are if you start on the Themes/Plugins screen first then I guess the change is valid in that case.

I agree.

@kharisblank thanks for the patch update.

It looks like for the most part, it applies cleanly, with one exception in src/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-installer-skin.php

I've tested it (non-exhaustively) for a Plugin update and it does the job.

Please refresh the patch for the ticket to move forward.

Hi,

With 5.4 Beta 3 approaching and the Beta period reserved for bugs introduced during the cycle, this is being moved to Future Release. If any maintainer or committer feels this should be included or wishes to assume ownership during a specific cycle, feel free to update the milestone accordingly.
