Design Share: July 4–15

Hi, all! Here are a few projects the Design Team has contributed to over the past couple of weeks. The 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. redesign — call for input

A kickoff post for the redesign of the Homepage and Download pages was shared on the Make Design blog recently:

With a new design style making an appearance in various places across the site, it seems like a good time to turn our attention to the home and download pages, two of the most-visited pages on and a well-worn path for those coming to experience WordPress.


Please share your ideas about how you envision these two pages taking shape directly on the post!

Design Library updates

Several new popovers have been added to the WordPress Design Library, like the “Publish” and “Color” popovers. They can be found in the “Views & Stickers” page of the library.

Navigation blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. bulk insert

@javiarce shared a prototype for inserting several items at once for the Navigation Block to ease the creation of new menus. Check out the design and prototypes, or weigh in on the original issue.

FSE usability testing

A number of design contributors volunteered to run usability testing sessions as a part of this month’s Full Site Editor outreach call for testing. @annezazu published an excellent recap of the testing sessions that’s full of valuable insights about some of the difficulties users encountered. Huge thanks to @javiarce @estelaris @ericcarco and @colourpress for conducting these sessions!
