Last week on the Post Status…
Last week on the Post Status Excerpt podcast I made some comments on WordPress settings based on a tweet from Brian Krogsgard.
On that topic of setting screens, Fränk Klein reached out to me on Post Status Slack this week, and he told me there is currently a drive to remove at least some “clutter” from the settings pages as part of the full-site editing project. 🙏
Fränk — whose newsletter on Gutenberg and WordPress is worth your time — showed me these comments in the Gutenberg repo. His take:
“Overall, this and other simplifications are a part of why I am so excited for full-site editing. Even if it’s still early in its current form. But there’s just so much opportunity to get rid of all that old stuff in a way that doesn’t feel like artificially removing things.”
