Reported by: casiepa Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordPress.org Site Keywords:


Translating the Meta>WordPress.org project (https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/meta/wordpress-org/), there are still links to the WordPress Codex. These should be changed to point to the corresponding support pages.

https://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database -> https://wordpress.org/support/article/backing-up-your-database/

  • themes/pub/wporg-main/page-download-beta-nightly.php:55

For the main reference, please make sure to review the cookies and duration if you change the below to the new site:
codex.wordpress.org -> https://wordpress.org/support/

  • themes/pub/wporg-main/page-about-privacy-cookies.php:193

Those references should remain pointing at the codex, since it talks about the codex specifically.

There's also a lot of footnotes on https://wordpress.org/about/security/ which reference the codex, these can/should be updated both here and in https://github.com/wordpress/security-white-paper/issues
