How can we reproduce this behavior?

  1. Install and activate Yoast SEO 10.0.1.
  2. Start adding HowTo block: you cannot add 00 to hours and minutes fields in Time needed, only 0, which feels counterintuitive.

I've written a patch for this that allows "0" or "00" in the DD, HH, and MM fields. However, it feels counterintuitive to only allow a leading zero for "0".

In other words, it would be more consistent to either:

  1. force all input to have a leading zero to match the DD/HH/MM placeholders or
  2. accept input with or without leading zeros for any valid integer.

Any feedback on this?

@thijsdevalk can you provide your opinion on this from a usability point of view?

Personally I would go for the second option, as the default values display 2-digit content (HH:MM) I find it strange to not accept exactly that. Having said that, forcing a double zero to indicate zero is pointless as well.

Option 2, definitely. It's very counterintuitive to have to fill out a 0 if the it takes a single digit amount of time. I can also imagine this impacting, for some themes, how it looks on the frontend, so we should leave decision on 1 or 2 digits with the user.
