See attached.

The installation error message links to http://drupal.org/node/258, which is now entitled Getting Started.

Can we change this to http://drupal.org/getting-started/install?

I know that docs will be moving to their own subdomain at some point but obviously there will be redirects in place for that...

Possibly should link to http://drupal.org/node/540220 instead (Installing Drupal 7)
Will get someone on the docs team to confirm.

Priority:Normal» Critical

i definitely think it should be http://drupal.org/getting-started/install - going to bump this to critical so it gets fixed asap! i would do it, but i have no idea where that msg is getting generated!

I changed the link as you requested.

I found another link to this page in the update.php file and I linked it to the drupal.org/upgrade page.

Thanks @kbgordon7 - looks good!

And yikes, this is pretty bad. Drupal 5 and 6 have links to this page as well, so we'll need patches there too. Given that, I wonder if for the time being it would be a good idea to put a more prominent link on http://drupal.org/node/258 leading directly to the new installation/upgrade pages?

Let's not abuse the critical priority.

Wow, that's nasty! Thanks for clearing that up!

Committed to HEAD. Welcome to the core team, kbgordon7! :)

Doesn't apply cleanly to Drupal 6, so will need a re-roll.

sorry damien! (are there guidelines anywhere that state what qualifies as critical? this seems like something i should know already, but i don't...)

I started to do a quick port to Drupal 6 but then realized that this would probably break translations... Is that worth doing here? Or does it make more sense to just ensure that http://drupal.org/node/258 has a more prominent link (as described above).

I don't know if this is really a critical bug, but sending someone who is installing Drupal for the first time to the incorrect help page is at least pretty unfortunate. The priority levels are officially described at http://drupal.org/node/45111 but I'm not sure who actually follows that. Personally, I tend to think of it as including anything that is so bad or ridiculous that releasing Drupal 7 without fixing it would make us look like fools :)

I've added a link to the install guide at the bottom of http://drupal.org/node/258 so it's there in the meantime.

Oh, that was an old CVS style patch. Reroll.

I applied the patch against 6.x dev successfully. When going to update.php and clicking the link, it goes to the expected web page.

Thanks, committed, pushed to Drupal 6 too.
