Creating an easier way to navigate to the Gutenberg handbook

Reported by: boemedia Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: General Keywords:


While Gutenberg phase 1 was in development, I didn't find it easy to find a way to get involved, since Gutenberg is literally invisible in the 'Get Involved' section on make.wordpress.org.

Yesterday, I saw @melchoyce posting a link to the Gutenberg handbook for developers and designers, but apparently, there's no easy way to access this information without knowing the url. I'd really appreciate a dedicated Gutenberg section in the Get Involved part of this site for easier access, also for new contributors, as make.wordpress.org is a maze to get through anyway.

This is the link to the handbook I mentioned: https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/handbook/designers-developers/

Thanks for the suggestion!

The Gutenberg Handbook referenced in the ticket has since been reorganized and relocated to DevHub at https://developer.wordpress.org/block-editor/, a link to which features prominently on the DevHub home page at https://developer.wordpress.org/.

The Try Gutenberg site itself (https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/) has a few inline links on the page that point to pages of the new block editor handbook.

The "Get Involved" page is a listing of contributor teams in the WordPress ecosystem. As the block editor falls within the purview of the existing core and design teams, those team pages would be more appropriate for adding links to resources for block editor-specific contributors.

Hi @coffee2code,

Thanks for responding. I hear you when you say Gutenberg spans multiple teams and is therefore hard to give it's own space.

I think links on https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ should work too, but that brings me to the next 'problem': how to discover that page from wordpress.org home if you don't know it exists?

So my main question is: someone coming to wordpress.org and wanting to find out more about Gutenberg. What would be the easiest and quickest way to get there?
