Reworked the URLs to the new standard.

Thanks @Cyberschorsch for rewriting the links.
Now it needs checking - and where necessary rewritting the text.

Also, all of the cron-related links in this help should be going to admin/config/system/cron and not to wherever they are currently going to.

Reviewed rewritten URLs, changed 2 additional ones, and changed the references to per comment #4.

Thanks, looking better! Next time you make a patch, an interdiff would be helpful. :)

There are still a couple of problems with this patch:

a) In About, there is no use of @search in the text, so we don't need that URL.

b) URLs should use !name not @name in t(). See

- addresses point #6
- changes reference to online docs

I changed component to get feedback from maintainers about changes in Search module between D7 & D8. There seem to be almost no difference (for the users / site builders)

Status:Needs review» Postponed

I'm one of the maintainers of search.module. :)

We need to postpone this, as there is another issue
#2042807: Convert search plugins to use a ConfigEntity and a PluginBag
which is actually making some significant changes to the UI for search.module settings.

Status:Postponed» Needs work

That other issue went in, so we can probably go back to this issue now.

Status:Needs work» Postponed

There's another UI change coming so we should postpone this again:
#2123073: Move index.cron_limit setting to NodeSearch

I don't think we should postpone this on #2123073: Move index.cron_limit setting to NodeSearch any more. However, #1366020: Overhaul SearchQuery; make search redirects use GET query params for keywords and #2156661: Search admin menu entry uses "settings" -- UI-text standards violation are both changing the UI a bit. They are both RTBC. Once those are done, we can return here.

And as a note, when we fix up this help, we should link to the Cron settings page rather than the Status report page when we talk about cron in the help.
