I don’t find it easy to switch between p2s. The product experience is to be on the front end of the main posts page in a p2. Right now the quickest way is for me to just type the corresponding url into the browser bar, which works well for my computing style.
WordPress menus seem to always send to backend
However, using any of the wp.com buttons/links in the top bar send me into the WordPress app or the larger backend for my p2s and blogs. Maybe there’s a quicker route but it seems there’s still a lot of clicking to get back to the front end.
stay on the front end, at least for non-creators
Personally I like the wp.com backend but not so much for my p2 experience. I’d rather go to the p2 front end and see new commentsComments Comments are the main way in P2 for you and your team to reply to posts and keep the conversation going. They’re located at the bottom of each post, and are organized in threads. Learn more. and posts there than gauge in the WordPress reader or the mobile app reader.
On top of the clunkier clicking situation, I think it’s a confusing and unnecessary space for community users of a p2, or non-technical users of multiple company p2s.
Make it easy to p2 all over the place
I may be wrong In not seeing a quick way to click between p2s, and I’m just missing some easy steps on mobile and desktop. However, since a p2s usage is distinct from other group blogging experience, I think it’s important to keep them segmented/grouped and always directing to the front end.
My initial thought would be a p2 drop down from the front end admin barAdmin bar The admin bar is the fixed black bar that appears at the top of your P2 when you’re logged into your WordPress.com account. It’s an easy-to-access toolbar with a few shortcuts to some central WordPress.com dashboard pages.. Place the p2 logo next to the WordPress logo in the admin bar, clicking or hovering would expand a list of p2s… Or design the backend experience so that when using a p2, the first screen on the wp.com backend lists the users’ p2s and clicking brings the user to the p2s front end.
