3218: add help text for topic tags using aria-describedby attribute

#3 @audrasjb

Oh, I didn't seen @Mirucon patch before uploading mine :)

So I think the difference between the two patches:
– mine is using aria-describedby attribute for a better accessibility of this help text
– Mirucon's is using <p> tag and CSS which is great

How about mixing these two approaches? :)

Sounds good, but let's only do it for the theme:


Let's not do it on the bb-base, bbPress, or BuddyPress themes, also the wporg-forums theme is no longer used so no point updating this theme either, all i18n sites should be using the new theme I now believe.

Hi @netweb,

So is the correct place, right? Should we add it on wporg-support/bbpress/form-topic.php as well?

I'll be making a new patch and it will merge the approach from @audrasjb's patch.
