Thank you to everyone who submitted, refined, and helped launch this set. I’m thrilled that users have such a broad set of high-quality patterns to choose from at launch, and I look forward to iterating and growing the collection over time.
Now that we’re post-launch, we’re going to close submission of general patterns to this initial collection. The next phase of development for the directory will allow anyone to submit their own patterns directly, so please hold onto your ideas for then!
In the meantime, the design team may add a few more patterns from time to time (similar to how default patterns were occasionally added to GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ before). You can keep an eye on the Pattern Directory’s GitHub repository for any activity there. Also, if you notice a bug with one of the existing WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ patterns, please file an issue and let folks know!
