    As we recently had a problem with variables in strings, I thought I’d ask about one (link) I recently came across.

    Spam in the <a href="%s">spam folder</a> older than 1 day is deleted automatically.

    In the singular form the URL to the spam folder is references as “%s” while the plural form says “%1$s”. It’s probably fine this way. Just asking to be absolutely sure.

    Cheers

    Hi!

    Our developers have looked into the string and determined the plural form is correct. However, to avoid any confusion, a slight tweak to it will be made soon. Thanks again! :)
