What to Test

To prepare:

  • Go to My Site > Settings > Use Block Editor to enable the block editor for new posts.
  • If you are comfortable testing in a language other than English, please test in that language.

To test:

  1. 1631 On the web, create a draft with aligned images. In the app, open an empty post (to load the js from the metro bundler), go to Blog Posts > Drafts, turn on airplane mode, open the draft, make sure images have placeholder images.
  2. 1701 In the block editor in the app, add a paragraph block, type some characters, undo changes until the block is removed. Repeat if necessary. App should not crash.
  3. 11074 Check that the profile icon is at top right and no longer in the bottom menu. Tap on the profile icon, make sure everything loads normally, tap the back arrow, make sure you are taken back to the My Site screen.
  4. 11074 Go to My Site and tap the “+” button at bottom right to open a selector, the tooltip should go away at that point, select one of the options, make sure editor opens, create a post/page and tap on the back arrow, confirm you are taking back to the main screen and you see a notice that the post was saved, check the new created post or page was created and available in the correct list (Published/Draft).
  5. 11074 Create a new site from the app and tap Accept on the dialog below to get access to the Quick Start tutorials. Go through the tutorials and check that everything works as expected, especially the Publish Post step.
  6. Last, there is an open-ended ask to test every area of the editor with both Aztec and Gutenberg. A lot of changes to the saving/uploading logic were made which basically touched everything in the editor.

You can find more details about all of the updates for this release in the related PRs targeting WordPress-Android 14.0 and gutenberg-mobile 1.20.
