Support Forums: Clarify WP.org profile edit link

Reported by: SergeyBiryukov Owned by: otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords: has-screenshots


The WP.org profile edit link added to forum profiles in [7908] is a bit confusing as is:

  • It says "Edit Profile", but leads to the main profile page, not the edit page.
  • It duplicates the existing link to the profile page in the content area.
  • The label clashes with the title of the forum profile edit link above. See the screenshot.

If the intention was to just link to the WP.org profile from the forum profile, then there's already an existing link in the content area added in #2068, I don't see a point in duplicating it.

Update: After reading Slack discussion, it looks like the intention was to add a WP.org profile link to the sidebar, so that it's still accessible from the forum profile edit screen.

In that case:

  • The label should be adjusted to "WP.org Profile".
  • The link should be moved to the top of the list, after "Profile".

If the intention was to add a WP.org profile edit link, then:

  • The label should be adjusted to "Edit WP.org Profile" for clarity.
  • The URL should actually lead to the edit page: https://profiles.wordpress.org/username/profile/edit/.
  • The label of the link above should be adjusted to "Edit Forum Profile" for clarity.

Assigning to your good self @otto42

I'm +1 on renaming to "WP.org Profile" and moving it up the list underneath the existing "Profile" link

I'm not. I think that it should be changed to point to the edit link instead. For parity with the additional "Edit Forum Profile" link added to the profile pages.
