  • Component changed from General to Help/About
  • Focuses ui-copy added; ui css removed
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement
  • Version changed from 6.4.2 to 4.9

The Privacy page and links to it were added on #40794. (See comment:43:ticket:40794.)

Ideally, those tab-like links in the about pages would be as short as possible.

On the other hand, the same translatable string was reused for the privacy settings pages. Differentiating them might help.

Hi @dilip2615, can you explain what you see as the reasoning behind this change? I think Privacy is a better label for this since Privacy Policy could imply that this is the policy for the individual site (which is the responsibility of the site owner) rather than a statement about WordPress the software's privacy.

I do agree that making this string seperatly translatable could be beneficial.

To make them separately translatable, is adding a context in _x()enough ?
