WPTavern: Take the WordPress Editor Experience Survey

WordPress core contributors have published a survey to collect feedback on how people are using the editor. The results of the short 15-question survey will assist the team in redesigning the editing experience in the WordPress admin.

Participants are asked to identify how they use WordPress and if they use certain features like formatting buttons and distraction-free writing. The survey also asks how easy-to-use they consider the current editor to be and how organized it is. Users are also asked if they have ever installed a plugin that adds features to the editor, presumably to determine if there are features missing that should be considered for core.

One question asks participants if they use any assistive technologies along with a screen reader. WordPress Accessibility team member Amanda Rush published some tips for screen reader users who want to take the survey. It includes several questions with radio buttons and screenshots that are not so friendly to screen readers. Rush provides a general walk-through with more explanation for those who are using screen readers to participate.

So far, this survey has been more widely shared than the design team’s recent customizer survey, which was published after receiving just 50 results. WordPress contributors rely heavily on these surveys to make decisions about projects they are working on, as they do not have any telemetry data about what features people are using or not using. This is one example where data could quickly demonstrate how widely the distraction-free writing mode has been adopted and show what editor formatting buttons people are using.

If you have a few minutes over the weekend and want to contribute to the future of WordPress, take the Editor Experience Survey.
