What to Test

To prepare:

  • 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.

To test:

  1. Block Editor: 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.
  2. Stats Refresh: test using a non-English device language (including RTL).
  3. Stats Refresh: test Stats on a brand new site.
  4. Stats Refresh: test Stats on a site with a lot of traffic.
  5. Stats Refresh: make sure cells animate as expected when expanding/collapsing them.
  6. Stats Refresh: when a different time period is selected, ensure all modules are updated as expected. This includes switching between Days, Weeks, Months, Years but also choosing a specific day/week/month/year in the graph.
  7. Stats Refresh: check that the data returned in stats graphs match the data returned in other modules.
  8. Stats Refresh: check that all types of data are returned for each module (e.g. all post types are returned for Posts & Pages).
  9. Stats Refresh: check that the “View All” option appears when/where expected and leads to the expected screen. Be sure to test with the current time period (e.g. current day) and past time periods (e.g. previous day).
  10. Stats Refresh: tap on a post or page to go to the post/page stats detail.
  11. Stats Refresh: tap on a referrer or click and verify the links open properly.
  12. Stats Refresh: change the dates displayed using the date bar at the top of Days/Weeks/Months/Years and on individual posts.
  13. Stats Refresh: check the Views per day for Insights > Latest Post Summary then tap View more to go to individual posts stats.
  14. Block Editor: on the web add a block with invalid content—or this sample content—then open the post in the app and verify blocks with invalid content says “Problem displaying block”. (1021)
  15. Block Editor: 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)
  16. Share 4 or more images to the share extension and publish. (11780)
  17. Share a TextBundle that includes 4+ images (from Bear, likely). (11780)
  18. Go to Site Settings > Site Title and change the Web Address to something custom (other than the domain) and delete the Site Title. Go to Account Settings > Primary Site and verify it is not empty and the domain is displayed (instead of the Web Address). (11803)
  19. Go to Me > App Settings > About WordPress for iOS and verify Acknowledgements is present. Does anything look amiss? (11776)
  20. Turn on airplane mode, go to comments, reply to a comment, verify you see a snack bar message saying “There has been an unexpected error while sending your reply.” (11817)
