#1578 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Compose PRIVATE Message

Reported by: erich73's profile erich73 Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


  • change wording for "Messages" towards "Private Messages".
  • re-name "Compose" towards "Compose Private Message".

The user will get confused with "Private Messages" and "Public Messages".
So there should be a clear wording that the Messages at this page are
clearly private and not visible to anybody else.

Please see Screenshot attached.

  • Component set to Core
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Right now, all core components have single-word names (in English at least). IMO it would look funny to have a long string like "Private Messages" in all the nav areas.

If you'd like to make changes to be more specific for your community, please use a language pack or a child theme. Since there hasn't been a lot of complaints about this particular wording, I don't think it's worth changing it in the core software.
