 > Hi suifengtec - Welcome to Trac, and thanks for the suggestions.
 > > the current admin screen edit-tags.php is also used to edit the
 categories,so I think the file for terms edit screen should be named edit-
 > If we were building WordPress from scratch today, we'd probably go with
 something like edit-terms.php. But it's not something we can easily change
 at this point. For one thing, many plugins etc link directly to URLs built
 using the filename 'edit-tags.php', links that would break if we simply
 changed the name of the file.
 > > The action hook quick_edit_custom_box should can be used to extend
 quick editing for terms(such as category/tag logo or sothing else),but it
 does not support it now( without a term row parameter ).so I think we
 should add an parameter( $tag->term_id ) to it.
 > 'quick_edit_custom_box' appears in the
 `WP_Terms_List_Table::inline_edit()` method. This method builds a single
 `<form>` element for the entire list table, which is then moved around the
 screen and populated with term-specific values using JS. In other words,
 when the markup is built and the hook fires, there's no way of knowing
 which specific term it'll be used for - and in fact, it could be used for
 *any* term on the page. So, if you want to add term-specific fields to
 Quick Edit, you'll have to use JavaScript to populate the fields. See wp-
 admin/js/inline-edit-tax.js (especially the `edit()` function) to see how
 WP does it.
 > I'll mark this ticket as 'maybelater' in case we decide at some point in
 the future to change the filenames of some wp-admin files.
