#8507 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Turbo link should not be in header

Reported by: futurix Owned by:

I remember that in first beta of 2.7 "Turbo" link moved to new sidebar navigation (where it rightfully belongs). However I was surprised to see it back to the admin header in 2.7 RC1 - with all settings nicely grouped in the new sidebar, it just makes no sense in the header.

It was added per Matt's request: #8185

So no matter how illogical it is, if it is Matt's request - it is automatically fine?

When it comes down to things like this where it's entirely a matter of taste and design, my own personal understanding is yes. In all honesty, we could debate every single little part of WordPress until the end of time with valid pros and cons on both sides. Someone's gotta steer the boat.

Besides, "it just makes no sense" isn't a valid reason. It's located under Tools in the sidebar, but I believe it was duplicated into the header to make the feature more pronounced, less buried, and hopefully wider used. But again, this is all my personal understanding / guessing.

So anyway, come up with a valid reason other than personal taste and then reopen. :)

What is the specific need to make this feature more pronounced? I personally do not use Gears and not going to, yet I'm forced this link on me and I often click on it instead of "log out". It is certainly a usability issue for me, and I don't think I'm alone here.

And yes, I know that I can remove it from WordPress source, however with automatic updates in 2.7 this is hardly going to work (in fact I specifically replaced most of my patches with plug-ins and "Turbo" is one of the few features I still cannot write a plug-in to disable).

The turbo item has a class on it: turbo-nag You should be able to inject some CSS into the WP header to hide it.
