Call for testing: Gutenberg

GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ is now in betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process., with that comes a new opportunity for testing.

There is now a testing page dedicated to Gutenberg, you can find it right here. There are currently 2 types of testing being looked for, each has a central feedback form.

Looking for other ways to give feedback? You can also write a blog post (let the editor team know about that in SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. #core-editor) or add an issue to the GitHub repository.

Your feedback and testing is really important at this stage of Gutenberg, it really does matter and help make this as good as it can be.

A new call for testing…

A new call for testing is out for the prototype editor. It looks neat! If you’d like to help test, remember that it’s in very early prototype stages so functionality is limited and they’ve asked for help with the following (other functions haven’t been built yet):

  1. Add a new paragraph.
  2. Add an image.

Written response:

  1. Is it clear what each section does?
  2. How do the flows for adding paragraphs and images feel overall?
