Handbooks Wireframe v3

Handbooks-v3Based on feedback from the handbooks v2 wireframe posted earlier this week, as well as discussions in the CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. Contributor Handbook subcommittee on IRC (see log) here is a new one I worked up, which includes the following changes:

  • Shortened line length – I increased the text size so now there is approx. 75 characters per line. I think it strikes a nice balance between a comfortable line length and a decent amount of density, to keep pages from getting overly long.
  • Numbered headings and subheadings – There is some debate as to whether these should be manually or automatically generated. For now we’ll just try them on for size and see how they look.
  • “Scrolling” TOC – The table of contents is now moved to 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. area, where it is allowed to float free of the text, and follow the reader as they scroll.

And that’s about it. Everything else is held over from version two. Please click on the wireframe to view full size, and leave your thoughts in the comments section.
