Description

Enhancement-suggestion to add a guiding paragraph below the heading ”Common Settings”. Suggested phrasing:

Select the permalink structure for your website. A structure that includes the post name makes sharing links to others more understandable.

This is a breakout from #55498 and is partly related to #55557 which all focus on enhancing the Permalink-screen.

The short guiding paragraph would be nice from my point of view.

Attached a mobile screenshot of 55947-permalink-guidence-v2.diff to show there are no issues on smaller screens.


Select the permalink structure for your website. A structure that includes the post name makes sharing links to others more understandable.

  • The second sentence means that sharing links is more understandable, but it is the link itself that is easier to understand.
  • It may be useful to change "post name" to <code>%postname%</code> so the user knows exactly what to use. This would mean changing from _e() to something like:
printf(
    /* translators: %s: the %postname% tag. */
    __( '... includes the %s tag ...' ),
    '<code>%postname%</code>'
);
  • The post name can also help with SEO.

If you agree with the above, what about this variation?

Select the permalink structure for your website. Including the %postname% tag makes links easy to understand, and can help your posts rank higher in search engines.`
