Date archives help text contains faulty information #9317

  • I've read and understood the contribution guidelines.
  • I've searched for any related issues and avoided creating a duplicate issue.

Please give us a description of what happened.

The help text at the Date archives section is incorrect. Right now it says that changing this to yes or no will influence whether or not the date archive shows up in the XML sitemap but we do not output a date archive in the XML sitemap. Having a date archive in a sitemap would be weird and unnecessary, so this text needs to be changed.


Please describe what you expected to happen and why.

I expected this part of the sentence and will be excluded from XML sitemaps not to be there.

How can we reproduce this behavior?

  1. Go to search appearance > taxonomies.
  2. Click to question mark.
