#2960 closed defect (fixed)

Plurals may be incorrect in "Right Now" dashboard widget

Reported by: thebrandonallen Owned by: johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0
Component: Locale - i18n/l10n Keywords: has-patch


This is the same issue as in #1683, but for the plugin instead of legacy forums.

To summarize, in the "Right Now" dashboard widget a i18n formatted number is passed to _n(). If the formatted number includes a separator, and the number before the separator is a one, then _n() will believe that the count is 1, and return the singular version of the string.

1,000 => singular version of the string
2,000 => plural version of the string
