    Meeting Recap – September 9 2014 

    This week @courtneydawn had to leave at the last minute and foolishly wisely left me in charge of the meeting. Henceforth I shall refer to myself in the 3rd person, just to make writing this post extra awkward. :)

    • Template Hierarchy: @coachbirgit has had trouble getting to this, but will be able to devote some time to it next week
    • Intro to CSS: @jerrysarcastic has added the quiz, sample XML import file, and made a few edits, and @meaganhanes has also edited the module. This is now READY TO TEST but @jerrysarcastic will not be able to pick it up until October. To keep things moving along, anyone is welcome to do a test run at their local meetup and offer feedback on how things went.
    • Widgeted Spaces @bethsoderberg created a stub for this new module in progress, yay! \o/
    • Post Formats: @courane01 reports that she is close to done with this module, but has run into a small issue where “post format video code interferes with the post format chat code, resulting in [the] sidebar on the chat layout not being where they should.” and is working to resolve this issue before finalizing.

    Opening up Testing to Meetups

    Some time was spent talking about ways of letting local WordPress Meetups know that there are modules available for testing as a way to jump start this part of finalizing our curricula for these workshops. One thought that needs to be followed up on is possible connecting with Meetups that are on the Foundation Meetup account.

    You can read all the fascinating details in the logs and anything if you would like to add anything, the comment form awaits!

      I’m doing some workshops at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where we have a new department to promote digital literacy. The goal is to eventually provide all students with hosting and stand-alone WordPress installs, as well as workshops and a help desk to guide them along their way as they create things. Most of our students are just starting to learn WordPress but we have a few that are more advanced and we’re planning on offering a couple of “Advanced Theme Customization” workshops for them next week. I think the Intro to CSS module would be a good base for us, so we can report back on how it goes (and we’re also planning on recording it). Is there any place in particular that I should send feedback?

        Howdy Nick, that would be awesome, and we would love your feedback, and a recording would be even better.

        You are welcome to drop in on our weekly chat in IRC to give us feedback directly, or as a comment on any of the meeting agenda/recap posts you see here. Thanks!

      I won’t be able to make the meeting today, but we did make some progress on the Anatomy of a Theme module.

      I propose deleting the last paragraph and image and just saving that for the Template Hierarchy module. But I did want to suggest using that image (or one of its variations) on the Template Hierarchy module. I find it much easier to understand than the other one. Perhaps provide both?

      So if we’re good with deleting that last section, I think it’s ready for the next phase.

      Also, I wanted to bring up whether we should be standardizing on which theme we will be using. Some modules are using Twenty Twelve, some Twenty Thirteen, and some Twenty Fourteen. Should we choose one unless there’s a specific reason for another one?

      Lastly, I wanted to let you know that I am hoping to make WCSF. It’s not definite yet, but please consider me in planning.

      I’ll be back again next week. See you then!

    Hello! I’ve added this team to the make homepage and added an icon for you (see the header here). Can you write up a better introduction to be added to the make homepage? Thanks!

    I’ve started on the Anatomy of a Theme page, but before I go any further, I wanted to check to see if I was going in the right direction. Can anyone provide input on what they expect to see in that module?

    The Island of Lost Modules

    We are having an issue of folks starting modules and then disappearing. We decided that if after not showing up on IRC, getting pinged here and getting emailed we don’t hear from them for 2 weeks we will consider the module abandoned and up for grabs.
