Today in the Nightly: Site icons in the customizer, editor patterns, more accessible comment bubbles, row toggle focus styling

Install the nightly, and try out this fresh batch of shiny.

Site Icons in the Customizer

I’ve long wanted site icons in the customizer alongside site title and tagline. The identity information that I always want to edit when first setting up a site are now all together in the customizer.

For more visuals, see these visual records.

See #16434.

Editor Patterns

Create bulleted lists, ordered lists, and blockquotes using markdown like patterns. I find this particularly handy on phones when the editor toolbar is offscreen.

Better focus styling for list table row toggles

See #32395.

Better accessibility and design for the comments bubble

The comments columns in our list tables were among the most confusing for screen reader users. Accessibility and visuals are now improved.

See #32152.

Eliminate content overruns on small screens

An audit of content overruns on small screens resulted in many fixes.

Before:

See #32846.

Styling improvements on small screens for Right Now in the network admin

See #32962.

Improved header information in Network Admin Edit Site tabs

  • Use the site’s name rather than URL in the Edit Site header.
  • Provide “Visit” and “Dashboard” links for the site on all tabs.

Before:

See #32525.

Disambiguate “Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu”

In the customizer, a menu’s auto-add pages option is now separated from the preceding menu location checkboxes.

See #32820.

 Passwords UI Improvements

Passwords received a couple of improvements. The show/hide toggles look better, and passwords ui is on the install screen. Passwords on the install screen still needs a little more flow work.

See #32589 and #32925.

For more visuals, see these visual records.

Reduce link noise in media library list view

This is visually subtle but removes confusion for screen readers.
