Hi, all! Here are a few projects the Design Team has contributed to over the past couple of weeks.
Developer and Documentation redesigns
We continued iterating the design of the Developer and Documentation pages with feedback from the community and the WordPress Documentation team.
We started redesigning the WordPress Jobs website. Figma file with an initial iteration.
Global styles summary view for blocks and styles
We are working on a feature called Style Book, a collection of every blockBlockBlock 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. available organized by categoryCategoryThe 'category' taxonomy lets you group posts / content together that share a common bond. Categories are pre-defined and broad ranging. that can be used to customize and preview the style of a site. Figma file and issue.
Summary panel grid tweaks
A very tiny improvement to the spacing of items in the post status summary panel. More work to be done. PR.
Efforts to add box-shadow controls to the editor have unearthed an inconsistency between Global Styles properties and inspector panels. For example, a missing “Border” panel, resulting in border properties currently being found in the “Layout” section. This PR adds a new border panel, with some icon work attached.
Menu Item Transforms
Building navigation is made slower by having to pick between mostly similar item types, “Page Link” vs. “Custom Link”. This issue details a simplification to hopefully reduce to a single item that can be transformed in the inspector.
FilterFilterFilters are one of the two types of Hooks https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Hooks. They provide a way for functions to modify data of other functions. They are the counterpart to Actions. Unlike Actions, filters are meant to work in an isolated manner, and should never have side effects such as affecting global variables and output. counter in Openverse
The filters applied counter is coming back to the Filter button and the filter tab. The idea is for improving the content settings flow and how users are aware of the narrowed results.
Pull Request #44770 reorganizes the site editor so that it is better positioned for exciting future enhancements like browse mode.
Pull Request #46228 explores higher definition shadows in the block editor UIUIUI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing..
