Experiences performing user tests with Drupal prototypes

I have been working on a project recently where we have been performing user tests against Drupal prototypes. The audience is a mix of people from regular users of Drupal to marketers who have never seen the platform.

We are seeing a trend where people are regularly distracted and/or confused by things within Drupal core's interface. One example is we designed a test where users would edit a node and change the workflow state. Users found it challenging to even find where to go to edit the node.

Mobile CMS screenshots of Owaves on iPad

Owaves has very good user interface elements for managing their content, some of this can be used as inspiration for Drupal's mobile user interface. Owaves is somewhat useful but makes it attractive because of its great UX. The Ux in the app Owaves is a colorful and easy to understand one. The use circles and bright figures to help give visuals.

How can we improve frontend sprints at Drupal events?

At DrupalCamp Ghent, we held a very small frontend BOF, with myself, Laurii, Emma.maria, and guest frontender Xano.

It quickly became a retrospective on the Friday sprints that took place at DrupalCon Amsterdam. The collective thoughts were not positive. It felt like we fell way short of our goals and potential for the Friday sprint. Drupalcon Friday sprints are about introducing people to sprinting and it feels like we failed badly at that.

Here were some of the problems:

  • Newbies did not get enough help
  • The few people helping the newbies did not get enough support

Add favorite/heart toggle and user rating to module contrib page

Hello Everyone,

I'm not sure where the best place to ask this question is - so forgive me if this isn't the best place. Has a discussion already been started about improving upon the current module page? If so can you kindly point me to it?

If not, what do you guys think about adding a favorite/heart toggle feature and user rating feature to module contrib page?

I use a similar feature on http://themeforest.net (http://note.io/1mnVuc3) and http://wordpress.org (http://note.io/1mnVuc3) to save and organize modules that I come across while searching for themes/plugins.

Redesigned Drupal.org profile page: your feedback needed!

Hi everyone! We're in the process of redesigning the profile page on Drupal.org, and we need the community's feedback! You can find the issue at: https://www.drupal.org/node/2281763.

Specific feedback needed:

  1. Assuming that we're keeping the current theme, does the organization of information make sense on the page?
  2. Is there any new information we should be collecting on profiles? Since this will require refactoring several of the data elements in profiles, we have a great opportunity to allow users to show/share more about themselves.

Make default publishing options optional

Over the years, most of my clients have been confused by the default publishing options - Published, Promote to frontpage, and Sticky at top of lists - appearing on all content types. I think it is great that these options are available in core, but I can say for projects I work on we rarely use these on more than one or two content types. I can understand how having options on the node form that aren't being used would be confusing for content editors.

Improve D.O. profile page: remove links that say "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic..."

To improve the friendliness of the individual profile page, it would be great to convert some of the non-used links into plain text. It is disappointing to have a lot of links that all give me the same, non-informative message when I click on them, namely: "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!"
