As the lines start to blur between editing post-content and editing site-content, the purposes of the top-level toolbar "Customize" and "Edit Post/Page" type links is also.

In a block-based world, the left-to-right order of these 2 links seems a bit odd:

  • Customize Site
  • Moderate Comments
  • Add New Stuff
  • Edit Thing

Screenshot imminent.

When viewing a Page or a Post, the "Customize" link takes the user to a page that shows quick-links to edit menus and widgets on that thing, and the "Edit Thing" link takes the user to the block-editor.

As these features slowly converge, I think it's important to consider all of the small ways we can gently guide users using incremental nudges like simply making these 2 links closer, combining them into 1 dropdown, or something else.
