Posted by

Yoast released variation 20.0 presents significant changes to the user interface that are meant to make it much easier to optimize a WordPress site.

New User Interface

The Yoast 20.0 user interface eliminates the old method of making users click several tabs to access pages with numerous choices.

The new variation of Yoast presents a card-style interface.

The card interface doesn’t require users to choose the way a tab user interface does. It presents the information as a series of features that a user can switch on or off. It’s an easier and more instinctive method of doing things.

Each category has its own row, with cards representing settings that can be toggled on or turned off.

The structure of the settings page resembles this:

Setting Category

Card– Card– Card

Each card, which is a setting, has an image at top, a description of the setting beneath the image, and in the footer location of the card is the on/off toggle and a Discover more link to a Yoast webpage that describes that specific setting.

/ > When a setting is switched off, the image is shown in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that suggests the setting is allowed. A user can know, actually with a glimpse, which settings in any classification, are switched on or

off just by

whether a card has color or no color. That’s a macro view of the entire settings page that enables the user to understand the summary rapidly, something that isn’t possible with the old tab-and-click-and-scroll method of navigating the settings.
