Description

Tutorials and lessons on learn.wordpress.org have become useful resources to many WordPress site owners. In #57785, we're discussing adding links to those resources inside a dashboard widget.

In this Trac ticket, I'd like to suggest adding a link to the site to the existing WordPress menu in the top admin bar. It would be a great addition to the menu, providing quick access to those resources from anywhere in your WordPress dashboard.

Adding a link to WordPress.org' Learn section would be a great addition to the menu, providing quick access to those resources from anywhere in your WordPress dashboard.

This option looks good to me as it can help new learners direct from their dashboard. Here I have one small suggestion that the link should open to the new tab.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 6.4
  • Owner set to audrasjb
  • Status changed from new to accepted

Thanks for the ticket and for the PR.
The proposed PR works fine. Moving to milestone 6.4 and self assigning for commit.

@mikinc860: except for very specific cases, opening a link in a new window/tab is bad. Please have a look at the related section of the Accessibility Handbook :)

  • Component changed from Menus to Toolbar
  • Focuses docs removed

#58595 might move all those external links to a dedicated admin page so they have more context. It also could avoid surprising anyone by opening links in a new tab (or the same tab when expectations are different).

Thanks for the patch, however AFAIK the Learn link doesn't seem to need any internationalization since people are being redirected automatically to their language.

Replying to audrasjb:

Thanks for the patch, however AFAIK the Learn link doesn't seem to need any internationalization since people are being redirected automatically to their language.

👍 I refreshed my pull request to remove internationalization on the link. I had originally added it to match the format used for the other links in the admin bar, but I'm happy to leave it out if it's not necessary.

Noting that there is also conversation about this here:

This is not the best solution for new users but should be considered as the best we can do before the admin redesign.
