Sept 27 Meetup Recap
The Support-Chat has been busted two weeks running. Last week was me in a car accident, this week stuck in traffic (schools let out at 2:45, who knew?) and I forgot what timezone I was in… But anyway!
Right now we’ve got a lot of them linking back to wordpress.com – This is okay for now. When we’re done, we’ll come back and make our own. I’m not inclined to leave the links to .com (or use the codex ones) since they can be changed without our notice.
3.4.2 or 3.5?
Either one. 3.5 is so close, if you’re working on a page that got a facelift/massive change in 3.5 (media, themes/appearance), then use 3.5. Otherwise the majority of the change is in the hip to be square buttons, and we’re okay with that.
Pages in need of love
If you want a page that isn’t created, just say “I want this page” and an admin will make it for you and tag you as the author. Keep in mind, we have a lot of similar pages, so it may help to say “I want Overview, built off http://make.wordpress.org/support/user-manual/05-just-write-in-wordpress ” in order not to confuse anyone
Some of these pages are assigned to people.
Just Write in WordPress
Media we should do off of 3.5. Under that page will be three (or more) subpages – embedding media (videos etc), changing locations of media files, and adding media to posts/pages. We’ll link back to adding media to posts/pages from the posts and pages screen.
Pages is going to be hard. We are not going to touch on Custom Post-Types. We’re not there yet. Maybe in advanced. That still leaves us with:
- Edit Pages Screen
- New Page Screen
- Page Attributes
- Page Jumps
- Page Revisions
- Page Screen
- Page Visibility
- Schedule a Page
So here’s the thoughts. Pull anything that impacts both pages and posts out. Like Page Jumps can really be re-worded to be generic and fit both posts and pages. Ditto Page Revisions and Scheduling. We should just have those in the ‘Writing’ level. Less work
For these, keep it simple. Widgets – only the ones that come with core (and a note “Themes and plugins may add …”).
