New Homepage is Launched

There’s been a lot of positive feedback regarding the new homepage development, and I’m excited to say it’s live! While this is only the first iteration, the plan is to continue design and development to create something truly amazing. This is the first step toward that goal. This project moved quickly in hopes to provide something beautiful for the holidays, and I’m proud of this beginning.

Thanks to everyone involved in this process: @rosso99, @sonjaleix, @hugobaeta, @brad2dabone, @matt, @otto42, and the many others who provided feedback!

Take a look and leave some feedback. Just visit the homepage to see the new changes! https://wordpress.org/

New Homepage Redesign

Wow, this is happening fast! During the Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. at WordCampWordCamp A WordCamp is a conference where the WordPress community come together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. https://central.wordcamp.org/about/. US, the Marketing Team sat down with a project in mind—the homepage of wordpress.orgWordPress.org 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. https://wordpress.org/. Being that the new design style is making an appearance in various places across the site, there was a desire to reboot the homepage as well. @rosso99, @sonjaleix, @hugobaeta, @brad2dabone, and @matt got together to begin creation.

Sketches were presented and thoughts shared.

Soon the idea took form and Matt expressed the need to get this project live. While much was resolved during Contributor Day, there was still more to go. The design was kicked of by @hugobaeta, and followed up by me (@mapk) and shared via Codepen Prototype.

  3. The map will show location pins of all WordCamps and Meetups worldwide.
  4. The quick view does not include the headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes. and footer which will be present in the final implementation.
