The buttons created for the %EDITPREFERENCES% variable have changed from 4.1.2 to 4.2.0. The new names ('Edit Preferences', 'Save new settings' and 'Cancel') are not consistent. We use %EDITPREFERENCES% in all groups to allow in-place editing of e.g. TWikiAdminGroup - the button 'Edit Preferences' looks strange in this context.

IMHO the buttong texts should be customizable or set consistently to one of the following:

  • 'Edit settings', 'Save new settings' and 'Cancel'
  • 'Edit Settings', 'Save New Settings' and 'Cancel'
  • 'Edit', 'Save' and 'Cancel'
