#5017 closed enhancement (fixed)

Suggestion: move Explanation section higher up on DevHub pages

Reported by: valentinbora Owned by: coffee2code
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Developer Hub Keywords: 2nd-opinion


Most of the time the Explanation (frontend: More Information) section is used to provide Usage examples.

I believe this should be higher up, before Source, Changelog etc., so right underneath Parameter and Return.

This is important suggestion.

Ideally we should enhance the inline docs of functions or classes but header area is limited and not appropriate for long description and/or usage. We should move Explanation section higher as @valentinbora suggests (or, in ohter words, immediately after the returns.)

Developer theme: Move explanations (aka "More Information") higher up in page, immediately after Return.

Moves Source and Changelog sections to much later in the page.

Props valentinbora, atachibana, coffee2code.
Fixes #5017.

The change for this ticket does not match the stated change. It says to move the More Information only, but what happened was the Source and Changelog were moved down the page, instead of just moving the Information up.
I find it very confusing now to see Related before the Source.
The Source needs to be close to the Parameters, so there is not so much scrolling back and forth.
Perhaps the More Information should be first.
But Related makes no sense before the Source.

I agree what @joyously says. Related section is not so useful and too long than Source section.
How about moving Source section immediately after More Information section?

fyi. please refer below two types

No More Information:

With More Information:
