Re: Login to, log into or something else

Hi Pete, thanks for clarifying your point of view. I still don’t agree with it ;)

…and I will actively defend your right to disagree with me, Els – all the way through the 10 items or fewer checkout.

Re: Login to, log into or something else

I’ve merged the GitHub pull request for ‘log in’ now and updated RPC.

Don’t speak Dutch, but your sentence structures seem to be different compared to English and Swedish (and its relatives), that share Norman influences.

Don’t speak Dutch, but its sentences seem to be short and abundant :)

Interesting. Just noticed that when you add an author on the Admin->Users panel, the label for the first field says “Log in”. I think that’s incorrect and it should be “Login” because it’s the noun: you are creating a login for a person. Ummm, is that right?

What’s strange is that, according to the code, it uses the l10n string login_name which wasn’t changed as part of Pete’s pull request. So what gives? Maybe it’s not using that string at all and either my eyes have glazed over from looking at PHP all day, or it should be using a different string there instead of one of the ones that were changed as part of the pull request. Confused.

Re: Login to, log into or something else

Fixed. It was a typo in the US strings on RPC (at the moment I have to manually update RPC when Textpacks are revised on GitHub).
