#1395 closed enhancement (fixed)

Remove "more download options" from Rosetta sites sidebar

Description

On the contributor day at WordCamp Berlin (#wcber) we talked about the rosetta site. And these links maybe could be removed:

https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/global.wordpress.org/public_html/wp-content/themes/rosetta/sidebar-page.php?marks=27-32#L26

The first link points to the .tar.gz which is already linked to below the button.

The second link is not very important and maybe can be omitted too. (Old versions)

The last link is just useful if there are really beta/RC releases. And this could be better managed with a post about beta/RC release with a link to the beta tester plugin etc. - as these versions are just useful in a explicit timeframe.

So maybe we can just remove the whole section.

Additional info: As these links are hardcoded there are not very flexible. But if any local community want to show them, they should be added per Links/Menu and shouldn't be hardcoded (because these links are shown even if there is no content to see ...)

I think these links should be replaced with wp_nav_menu() rather than outright removed, so that they could be easily added back if needed in locales that do have beta/RC releases.

While we're at it, we could also convert the Resources links below to use wp_nav_menu() as well instead of wp_list_bookmarks().

  • Keywords needs-patch added; ui-feedback ux-feedback removed

I agree with @zodiac1978, we should remove those links.

This issue was mentioned several times by the Israeli WordPress community. We never had "Beta" and "RC" versions in hebrew.

And I agree with @SergeyBiryukov too. Bookmarks are so wp2.x ...
