#3719 closed enhancement (fixed)

Update the Download Button in the Header

Now that the Download page allows people to get WordPress in more ways than merely downloading a file, I'd like to update the wording on the button to say "Get WordPress"

Updating the global menu is easy enough, but it won't change the translations on Rosetta for the other language pages.

The rosetta plugin would need to be changed as well, and we'd probably want to get translations made up for the major sites before simply switching it around.

Looks like the translated version of the button happens in /plugins/rosetta/inc/class-plugin.php. Perhaps adding the _x('Get WordPress') to that plugin early, so that it can be pre-translated before switching it over, would be best. I'm uncertain as to whether "Get WordPress" will have different connotations than "Download WordPress" does in other languages, but probably best to sort that out.

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Looks like this wasn't fully implemented. The button now says "Get WordPress" on Rosetta sites, but still "Download WordPress" on the main site, Trac, Codex, etc. If the intention was to change it globally, then let's do that.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

but still "Download WordPress" on the main site, Trac, Codex, etc.

Looks like it's just Trac that threw me off, the main site and Codex are OK.
