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. 13112 Enter any comment flow (reader, notification, comments), add some text, tap the full screen toggle button, add more text, tap the exit full screen button, enter more text, tap reply/save button.
  2. 13195 On the device, add the Today and/or the All-Time widget to the Today view. In the app, Go to Stats > Widgets > Use this site, switch to a different site, go to Stats, close the app, return to the Today view and tap a widget, tap Done to close the modal, verify the Stats view then displays the Stats for the selected site (not the widget site).
  3. 13196 On a site with high traffic, go to Stats > Widgets > Use this site, add the Today and All-Time widgets to the Today view, verify the widget numbers are abbreviated as they are in the app.
  4. 13131 With a site you haven’t accessed before or modified insights, check that the default insights list is: Latest Post Summary, Today, All-Time, Follower Totals. Tap Add stats card and check that the view is presented modally and functions as expected. Also test on iPad.
  5. 13158 Trigger some notifications and tap on them. The app should be opened correctly and should not crash.
  6. 13128 Set the Site Time Zone to a different Time Zone than the device, schedule a post, check that the displayed scheduled time matches the site’s time zone and is published on that date.
  7. 13173 Rename an image saved on your device or iCloud Drive. In the app, go to Media > + and add a new image, select ‘Other Apps’, select the renamed image, after it uploads click on the image and verify the original file name was kept (lowercased and without extension).
  8. 1669 In the block editor in the app, add an image via link, add a second image from the Media Library, close and reopen the post, verify the Image Sizes option is displayed for the image inserted from the Media Library and not for the image added via link.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
