Tooltips for "topic admin actions"


(Jan P.) #1

Just discovered a new action in the “topic admin actions” behind the wrench icon button: “Reset Bump Date”. As I have no idea what this means, I got the idea that having a tooltip appear when hovering those actions would be nice. “This … to …”.

Sure, feel free to submit a pull request :wink:

Should I write “I have no idea what this does” in the tooltip label?

In forum parlance, bumping a thread means moving it to the top of that particular board, or in Discourse parlance, the top of the recent list. The bump date refers to the time that the post was last bumped, or rather, when it was last pushed to the top of the list/board.

Resetting that effectively puts it back in chronological order according to when the thread was originally created, rather than when the last reply was hit.

On another note: Wouldn’t adding tooltips that explain what each button in the wrench menu does mean that we’d also need localization/internationalization for each tooltip? Seems kinda crazy in terms of costs.

Well, we already do this in a bunch of places, so it’s no bigger cost than anything else.
