More concise language for About topic title in new Category


(Steve Combs) #1

When creating a new category, the About topic title is currently:

About the [Category Name] category

This can be changed by a user, but it would be more concise to change this to

About [Category Name]

I find myself changing it every time I set up a new category. Not hard to work around obviously. Just a thought.

I’m not sure if that would meet minimum topic title length guidelines, e.g

About Bugs

is 10 characters, and I’m fairly sure the minimum topic title length is 15 characters.

And it wouldn’t work for everyone. eg
About JavaScript
could be confused with JavaScript the language, JavaScript the category, JavaScript the tag.

That said, if it works for you it’s easy to do

Admin -> Customize -> Text Content -> (find it) -> edit

Thanks. I forgot the customize text is so flexible.

I have made this longer than usual because I have not had time to make it shorter. - Pascal
