What Testing is Most Needed:

If you are comfortable testing in a language other than English, please test in that language.

  • Follow any of the steps below, but the fact that it’s listed here means we already thought of it, so most importantly, get creative and find the things we didn’t think of!! 🤔
  • Bonus points: try using VoiceOver for any of the following!
  • Try using it in the wild. Please create pages and posts on different site types with different themes and include the WP apps in your life like a user does.
  • Block Editor
    • Audio block:
      • File picker opens automatically, use it to insert from URL. Dismiss the bottom sheet and add from URL by tapping “Add Audio” (File samples can be found here if you need them)
      • Use valid and invalid URLs, use a URL for a file type that isn’t audio. Try with very large or very small files.
      • Add an audio block to posts and pages with other block types in them.
      • Add an audio block using “/”
      • Add to existing (Edit) and new (Create) posts and pages.
      • View and play the audio in webview, on desktop and in Reader
    • Reusable blocks:
      • With reusable blocks already created on existing sites, insert them into posts and pages (old and new) on various site types.
      • Add them using the bottom sheet block picker and the “/”method.
      • View in webview, on desktop and in Reader
      • Change a reusable block on the web and use the updated block in your post.
    • Review the PR for more details
      • Known Caveats
        • Until we add support for unbounded queries, the app only fetches the last 100 reusable blocks from the site so the inserter menu will show up to 100 items.
        • The search form takes into account the reusable blocks but we’d like to note that the feature is still WIP so it could change in the future.
  • Notifications:
    • Check the actual list of likes (for both a post and a comment) and confirm the notification detail matches
    • Like others and your own posts and comments, verify there are no regressions
    • Be on alert while using the app that likes and notifications behaviour is normal
