By going through all these tasks I learned that doing basic things, like these four tasks, can sometimes be quite challenging. Surprisingly, the most difficult task turned out the be the add new gallery. I have the luck of having a dad who is quite the WordPress specialist so if I need any assistance I just have to call for him across the room, but I do see that this is not a privilege every beginning user has 😉 .
I think it’s really important that exercises into New User Experiences need to happen more in the WordPress community to improve the overall user experience. I’m relatively internet savvy, but I haven’t used WordPress myself outside of automatically importing my Instagram feed into my personal blog. Something my dad set up by the way.
I’ve stuck to doing to tasks as literal as possible, but as I was clicking through the WordPress admin I noticed a lot of things that made me curious what was behind it and how it would work. All in all it works fairly straight forward to use, but there’s also a lot of things happening that is not making a lot of sense to a first time user.
