#7476 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Theme Editor link in the "right now" dashboard section

I think the (new) back-end rule of WordPress is to click on the name for editing.

Therefore, I want to suggest that the theme name in the "Right now" section of the dashboard is clickable and links to the theme editor.

<p class="youare">
You are using the <a href='theme-editor.php'>Theme name</a> theme with <a href='widgets.php'># widgets</a>. <a href="themes.php" class="rbutton">Change Theme</a>
<span id='wp-version-message'>This is WordPress version 2.6.</span></p>

A small change, but a handy shortcut...

Hi Ryan and the other Godfathers of WordPress Development!

I've just upgraded my blog to WP 2.7 beta-1... And I love it... You all did a great job...

There is only one minor thing that could be improved:

The new "Right Now" section shows the info:

Theme [ThemeName] with Widgets [Button: Change Theme]

Both, [ThemeName] and [Button: Change Theme] link to /wp-admin/themes.php

In my opinion, it would be useful to change the link of [ThemeName] to /wp-admin/theme-editor.php.

Just my 2 cents...

Usually don't open "wontfix" without prior discussion with core developers on IRC or Hackers.
