#52987 closed enhancement (fixed)

Rename "Summary" to "Excerpt" in Reading Settings

On the Reading Settings screen, there is an option for feeds:

For each post in a feed, include

  • Full text
  • Summary

This is the only place in the UI where the post excerpt is referred to as "Summary", everywhere else it's "Excerpt". The underlying database option is also called rss_use_excerpt.

For consistency and to avoid confusion, would it make sense to call it "Excerpt" here too?

In 50702:

Feeds: Rename "Summary" to "Excerpt" in Reading Settings.

On the "Reading Settings" page, the post excerpt was referred to as a "Summary". For consistency with the rest of Core, this change updates "summary" to "excerpt" both in the setting and the relevant help tab.

Props SergeyBiryukov, ravipatel, mukesh27.
