Description

The general idea is to move https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions

Into the devehub https://developer.wordpress.org/wordpress_versions/

To showcase the final result, I did that in http://displaywp.com/version/

I tend to think of the WordPress Versions page as more of a support page. It would, thus, belong in helphub, when that's ready.

Replying to samuelsidler:

HelpHub? realy? I think it's a DevHub territory. Lot's of information for developers, absolutely no "support-related" content.

The Version pages have a good mix of developer specific text and normal user specific ones.

I'd say developer.wordpress.org has a strong mandate on what should be there and Helphub has less so.

Helphub being more flexible should take this in.

By the way, Helphub isn't just for Support :)

I see it as a 'learning more about WordPress' area

This was discussed in #core and there is a general consensus with the available participants that the Custom Post Type (for WordPress Versions) will reside in Helphub.

I will be writing a post to Make / Core to get the Core Team at large to approve it.

I need to shrink a bit "WordPress Versions" string from 5rem to 4.1rem - to fit it to layout.

@iworks You need to update .scss, not only .css.

@coffee2code Is this something you'd be able to shepherd through?

This has partially been started by HelpHub, the individual version pages have moved: https://wordpress.org/support/wordpress-version/version-5-0/

But the actual version index page hasn't yet.

Update: the WordPress Versions archive located at - https://wordpress.org/support/wordpress-versions/

it should be designed.

are we only keeping the last major/minor versions live and archive older versions? Or should there be a live archive of all version pages in HelpHub?

It looks like this may already be on the Documentation website at https://wordpress.org/documentation/wordpress-versions/

Is there any further work to do here, or can we close this ticket? IMO the landing page looks fine and matches the new design. Perhaps the Codex page at https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions should redirect/point to this new documentation page so we don't need to manage two different versions?
