Design chat summary for August 11

This is the design chat summary on August 11. (Slack log).

In attendance was: myself, @karmatosed, @mapk, @foliovision, @melchoyce, @afercia

  • @celloexpressions had requested for us to bring up #34923 during the chat. It’s a complex ticket, but hopefully it will get some eyes on.
  • During open Floor, @karmatosed shared a list of tickets that need attention:
    • #37384: Text alignment in options-discussion.php – @foliovision is gonna spend some time on this
    • #30599: media views: improve keyboard accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). ( avoiding confusing tab stops – We came to the conclusion it doesn’t need ui feedback, it’s a purely accessibility issue
    • #32194: Post Locked Notification Dialog is not Responsive – @mapk found a bug in there and is opening up another ticket for it. @foliovision is also looking into it
    • #26605: Appearance of recent/future posts in dashboard looks off on mobile.
    • #27253: Enhancement Request: direct link to Drafts under Posts and Pages on the sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. – I added a quick inspector mockup screenshot to the ticket to help visualize it.

We’ll be back next week on Thursday August 18th, 20:00 UTC!
