Let’s start testing Learn.WordPress.org

The new Learn.WordPress.org is launching soon, complete with four courses in the User and Developer Learning Pathways. Your help is needed to QA/test the new site! Please follow these steps and report any bugs you find

Testing steps

  • Log into WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ if you’re not already.
  • Visit https://learn.wordpress.org/?new-theme=1 or click the “Preview the new theme” link in the admin bar.
  • Navigate the site and make sure all links work as expected, and everything looks as expected.
  • Register for a course and go through all the lessons/quizzes.
  • Try different browsers and devices, including mobile devices.
  • Repeat the above steps – except for course registration – while logged out. (The new-theme preview link now works while logged out.)

Reporting Bugs

If you find any issues:

  • Search the Learn WordPress GitHub repository to see whether the issue has already been reported. (See also list of current reported bugs, and milestones of issues for launch and post-launch.)
  • If it’s a new report, create a new GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ issue in the Learn repository using the Feedback template.
  • Mention in your issue that the report is for the new Learn WordPress site.
  • If you have the ability to assign the issue to a GitHub Project, select “WordPress.org Redesign” project, and if possible, also the “LearnWP Website Development” project. If not, no worries – leave Project blank and it will be assigned for you. 
  • Please include:
    • Your OS and version
    • Your browser and version
    • Link to the specific page you found the bug on
    • Screenshot or screencast showing the problem

Known issues, enhancements, and prioritization

  • Current reported bugs.
  • The thumbnail creation process is still ongoing, so some lessons and other content “cards” do not have custom thumbnails yet. You can still help create more thumbnails – get all the details.
  • While suggestions for future enhancements are also welcome, the priority at the moment is to find urgent bugs that may affect the launch.
  • The dev team will prioritize bugs that are blockers to launch, with other issues set to be addressed post-launch.
  • Don’t worry if you’re not sure whether something has already been reported or isn’t actually a bug. Better to report it just in case.


Please log all GitHub issues by July 17, if possible.

Thank you in advance for helping make the new Learn WordPress the best it can be!
