What to Test

  1. Using 12.6-rc-1 or later, go to Me > App Settings > Use Block Editor to enable Gutenberg Mobile for testing on new posts. Posts created using Gutenberg on the web should open in Gutenberg on the app regardless of what is selected in App Settings.
  2. Create and publish post using all of the available blocks (Paragraph, Heading, Image, Lists, Separator, Page Break) and check that each one works as expected.
  3. On the web, add a block with invalid content—or use this sample content—then open the post in the app and verify blocks with invalid content say “Problem displaying block”. (1021)
  4. Create and publish a new post with a link set to “Open in New Tab” in the block editor. Close and re-open the link settings and verify the setting is still correct. (1030)
  5. Go offline, create a local draft, go online, verify local drafts have been updated. (9902)
