Should the «what? where? when?» sequence be followed in the bug description?

Yes, the sequence of answers must always be preserved. It should be followed in summary, description and results.

There are some exceptions where you may miss out on the «Where» part (to avoid tautology) or «When» (if the bug is displayed without additional actions).

More information about the principle can be found in the article.
