During one of our UX audits we discovered a bottleneck for users trying to access the documentation areas of our plugins. The path required a user to start at an individual plugin page and use the links within to arrive at the documentation. For prospective members, this process followed the natural path. For existing members this process added 1-2 extra clicks to arrive where intended.
Introducing the New Mega Menu
Hover over the “Plugins” menu item in the header of this website to see a pleasing dropdown of the most commonly viewed sections of the plugin documentation. Anything you need is now only 1 click away from any page on our website.
As the WordPress community evolves so does the way our users access plugin documentation. The Plugins menu items will automatically update over time based on which plugin sections are accessed most often.
Today the menu may look like the image above but tomorrow it may have a link to a specific block documentation or a new demo page. The combinations are essentially endless. Rest assured the menu will always contain the most relevant links.
