Today at work, I was writing about categories and tags in WordPress. I noticed something that looks strange to me and I decided to share it here.
Apparently when a user edits a category, tag or any term. It is handled by
edit-tags.php file which takes parameters like
Shouldn’t it be called
edit-terms.php and have
term_id instead of
tag_ID? This will improve user’s understanding of how taxonomies work. They will start to understand that category and tag are taxonomies and all their categories and tags are terms inside those taxonomies. I am sure this might have come to core developers mind but they probably decided not to do that, I am just curious why?
I think renaming
edit-terms.php makes sense. Any thoughts?
