Social Sign Up – Visual Record

I often sign up as a new user for testing. Sometimes I take screenshots as a visual record. They serve as a reference and keep a pulse on how things change over time. Here is a visual record of the new social sign up process that you will soon be able to use to create a WordPress.com account.

Subscribing to YouTube Video Channels in Reader

I want to be able to subscribe to a YouTube video channel in Reader.

  • URL I used to subscribe in Reader: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_A–fhX5gea0i4UtpD99Gg
  • Feed URL: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UC_A–fhX5gea0i4UtpD99Gg
  • Reader site stream: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/45331199

Videos aren’t displayed on individual posts:

Doable? Should I file this as an issue in GitHub?

Captioned Gallery Flow

I did a walkthrough of a captioned gallery flow in Calypso on mobile, and the flow for adding captions (or editing any meta) is pretty hidden. There’s a suggestion on the table to make the “Edit” step part of the normal flow in order to make captioning easier.

Here is a visual record in screenshots and my walkthrough video for reference:
