#7245 new enhancement

Improve visibility of Developer Blog on Developer homepage

Visibility of the link to the "developer news blog" at could be improved.

Calling it the "Developer Blog" has me instinctively (and repeatedly 😞) entering (see #7089), and until today I completely missed the existence of its tiny link at the bottom of the Developer hub page 😅. A few times I have ultimately turned to a search engine to find the location of the "wordpress developer blog". (I'm not proud of my forgetfulness; just sharing my experience.)


I'd like to propose that the blog become a "first-class citizen" of the Developer hub, and have its own link, icon, and description in the main content area of the page. The blog's content is the result of considerable effort, and is growing into a rich and ever more important resource -- it's deserving of better visibility / easier discoverability! 👍🏻

An additional idea (or alternative if "news" shouldn't be a primary "resource") would be to surface Developer News in the main navigation. This blog's slug and design mimic that used by, but only the latter gets prominence in a nav link.

Do you mind taking a look at this ticket in the theme's repository:

Does that design address your concerns?
