Site Health information site

Description

With the extended implementation of the Site Health projects in 5.2, it would now be useful to have a page with information on it that users can visit.

The idea is for this to live under wordpress.org/support/site-health

A plain page we can do already, but we'd like to introduce some design elements to it, making it more captivating for users to find what they need and stick with it to find out more.

The page should also be available for translation so that it is available to rosetta sites.

Content wise, I'm thinking, but am open to suggestions, along the lines of:

  • The goal
  • How does this help you as a user
  • Maybe some hand-holding for the more "complicated" steps core bundles that users may find confusing and be looking for help on?

Alongside this, I'm thinking a DevHub page, likely under the plugins section, as the most relevant one, for extending the Site Health Status tests. I'm not sure they fit into the support pages, but definitely something with how to extend things, as well as expectations and recommendations for developers to try and maintain a high level of usefulness through the tool.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

With the improvements in flexibility that's come to the block editor since this ticket was created, and the continued rollout of HelpHub to rosetta sites, I don't believe this ticket is needed any more.

The initial idea behind this was a page much like the PHP one, where translations were code-strings. This would not allow for much flexibility to account for different approaches taken by different locales in how they present information, so the direct use of HelpHub is much more appropriate at this time.

Would still love to see a user-focused Site Health article, but it doesn't need to be a meta task at this point.
