Help tab, says […] Update Media […], while button says Update

Found while editing an attachment:

The help tab text says:
Remember to click Update Media to save metadata entered or changed.

The primary button on the screen says Update.

The string is found in both wp-admin/media.php and wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php.
I suggest a change to just Update in both places.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 6.2

Hi @kebbet, thanks for opening this ticket! I agree, let's make this consistent.

Milestoning for 6.2 as it's likely to be a very quick change.

This ticket was mentioned in PR #3966 on WordPress/wordpress-develop by @kebbet.

  • Keywords needs-refresh added

So, here goes. Props to @costdev for helping out understanding whats going on.

There is two buttons that says Update Media in core in the file wp-admin/media.php. This file is not referenced in core anywhere. In a comment by @afercia 6 years ago it is referenced as the Old Edit Media screen.

Two themes have references to the file, but it is in their default.po file. (Search result)
More plugins have references to the file, but many references *.po and *.pot files. (Search result)

The screen is actually possible to access via links like this: /wp-admin/media.php?attachment_id=NNNN&action=edit where NNNN is the attachment ID.

The screen is broken, clicking the Insert into Post button leads to a white screen.

So, to match the help tab text what any user interface look like, I suggest to change the button texts to Update from Update Media.

A follow up ticket might need to be opened for disussing the faith of wp-admin/media.php.
