#54709 closed enhancement (fixed)

Changing the link in the help tab of the Add Themes screen

Milestone: 6.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Help/About Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: docs Cc:


The link "Documentation on Adding New Themes" targets the helphub post "Using Themes #adding-new-themes" when it should rather target the post "Appearance Themes Screen #Install-themes".

To fix this it is enough to modify a line in the file “wp-admin/theme-install.php”.

The patch still apply cleanly and the change looks relevant to me.
Moving to 6.0.
I would have been more than happy to commit it in 5.9, but we’re already in soft string freeze.

In 52452:

Help/About: Correction on the documentation link about adding new themes.

In the Themes Screen Help Tab, the "Documentation on Adding New Themes" link previously targeted the "Using Themes" HelpHub post whereas it had to target the "Install Themes" section of "Appearance Themes Screen" HelpHub post, which is more relevant.

Props jdy68.
