#48184 closed enhancement (fixed)

Poor phrasing when customising a menu

Go to Appearance, Menu. Observe the text "Drag each item into the order you prefer". This is not very good English because one individual item only has a position, not an order. The entire set of menu items has an order, and each item has its position within that order.

So it would be better to say:
"Drag each item into the position you prefer"
"Drag the items into the order you prefer"

This text appears on nav-menus.php, not in the Customizer as far as I can tell; moving this ticket back to the Menus component.

(Having looked at it, though, the patch makes sense, at least to me. It would bring the text in line with the text in the Help tab on nav-menus.php, which says "drag and drop items.")
