At the dev day in Reno, Mitcho worked on a patch for active/inactive states on the buttons on the WPMenus screen. Basically, it makes the button to add to menu inactive unless you’ve selected something to add. nice.

Trac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. UI UI 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. challenge:
Probably not that much of a challenge, necessarily, but would need approved mockups for someone to want to start a patch. Collapsible page hierarchy on edit.php?post_type=page.
Visual design and CSS peeps: can you go weigh in on this on the ticket? Underline vs border-bottom in admin links. https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15700
Ticket #15942 – Username vs. Email for Identifying Users
Reported Problem: “When I create a new blog in a network, I am asked to enter the Admin Email. This is rather useless to me because all our accounts come from an LDAP directory. So I have to remember the site admin’s email address, which is not always consistent across my organization. It would be nicer if I had an autocomplete-style field where I could enter the user’s ID.”
The issues of selecting existing users vs. adding new users and doing so by email address vs. username touches more admin interactions than just this one. We’ll need to address it as a whole rather than just focusing on this one person’s complaint, but using this ticket as a starting point for discussion.
This is probably on y’alls list already, but I was reminded today how weak the blue stylesheet feels and looks in the admin versus the grey one.
It’d be worth cleaning it up, and also expanding it to a few other colors, maybe 5-6 total, for the fully customized experience. And I hope one of them is pink. 😉
