Otto To Head The WordPress.org Redesign

The WordPress.org redesign is about to get underway and the person who is in the hot seat to complete the work is Otto. For the past few weeks, we’ve been giving Otto some ideas as to what we would like to see done with the website. If you have not done so already, I highly encourage you to add your own feedback to the thread as it’s ongoing. Personally, I think the biggest weakness of the current website is the lack of organization of the data that it presents to the public. There is a lot of good information strewn about multiple pages but it takes too many clicks to get to. Also, some information needs be brought out from the depths of the site and made more public facing. From what I understand, Otto has reorganized his professional life for this opportunity so lets provide him the necessary support and hope all goes well. Placing the WordPress software aside, the WordPress.org website is one of the cornerstones of the project that I feel needs to be an awesome public face for the project.

  1. How is the redesign going to be done? Only by a small group of people working closely together, privately? Or is it going to be more open? How could people get involved in contributing specialized plugins or modules for the website?

    How is the WordPress.org redesign going to effect WordPress development? I had heard somewhere that they were going to have some sort of odd development cycle, as well as longer development cycles.

  2. @Dan Cole – I don’t know the answers to any of those questions. Otto has stated that he is very much still in the planning phases and once there is a known direction to go, he’ll be publishing it in the right places for people to help out or relay feedback
