DevHub getting a new look

With all the redesign happening in WP.org, it is now time for Developers documentation. The design team has started with a new look but need feedback from documentation users.

Developers documentation is composed of handbooks and articles. At this time, the handbooks will not be redesigned.

What we need feedback on?

  • Compare and review the landing page. Changes include:
    • First 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. links the handbooks under Developer Reference
    • The second block splits the Code Reference into New and updated in 6.x version and the Common APIs handbook TOC
    • The link to Dashicons was removed since they have been deprecated. Do they still need to be linked under Resources? Or shall the link move to somewhere else?
    • Does this navigation make sense?

Other sections that need review

  • Breadcrumbs have been moved to the blue ribbon
  • User contributed notes
  • User contributed notes feedback form
  • Styling in the code block (highlighting the title and keeping the code background white)
  • The general Add note/feedback form
  • The changelog at the bottom of the page will be expandable

Feel free to leave your comments in the Figma file or in this post.
