Switch international support sites to new theme

Description (last modified by dd32)

In April we signalled the intention to move all support forum sites to the new theme by 1st July 2024.

In order to be ready for the switch, admins should enable the theme preview and check the display of the site, particularly the page at /support, as this can be customised and some layouts may need editor updates to be compatible.

Steps:

  1. Enable the preview by clicking the 'Preview the new theme' button in the admin bar, or by visiting the site and appending ?new-theme=1 to the URL, eg. https://fr.wordpress.org/support/?new-theme=1
  2. Check the /support, /support/forums/, forum archive and single forum views.
  3. If there are display issues on the /support page and the site is using a widget based homepage, fix the issues using the editor if possible, or else log the issue in a comment on this ticket.
  4. If there are no issues you can ask to have the new theme enabled straight away in the #meta Slack channel, or otherwise the site will have the new theme enabled around July 1.

Support landing page examples (/support)

The Italian site uses a widget based homepage (has 'Front page blocks' widgets configured):

The French site uses a widget based homepage (has 'Front page blocks' widgets configured), but some content probably needs to be combined into a single widget to avoid the empty grid areas:

The Spanish site does not have any widgets configured so the default layout is displayed:
