      Looking for support after updating client’s WordPress to 3.8.3. After attempting to login there is a redirect to the home page. Normally we login via /wp-admin which created the homepage redirection. After trying ‘wp-login.php’ we discovered that we were able to enter login credentials however that also redirected to ‘/wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2F’. Hostgator recommended downgrading to previous version of WordPress, but it seems to be unreliable.

    Docs Team Update: Apr. 10, 2014 

    The following is a summary of the topics that were discussed during our weekly Docs chat.

    1. DevHub: The parser has one bug left to be fixed. Theme work is ongoing, and could use everyone/anyone’s help.

    2. Admin Help: @trishasalas talked to @designsimply about starting user testing. Work continues on reviewing older usertesting.com videos.

    3. Handbooks: @sewmyheadon incorporated @philiparthurmoore‘s intro text into the Theme Developer Handbook. There have been some other contributions as well, so things are moving forward. The Seattle Docs Sprint last weekend went well. There were 9 contributors, and progress was made on both handbooks.

    4. Codex updates for 3.9: We need a volunteer (or volunteers) to compile the master list of pages in the Codex that need to be updated for 3.9. If you would like to help with this, please leave a comment on this post.

    5. Docs Conferences: If you are planning to be in Portland for Write the Docs-NA (May 5-6, 2014), please let @siobhan know so a WordPress get-together can be planned.

    You can read the chat logs here.

    Support Team Update for April 10th 

    In today’s #wordpress-sfd support meetup the following items were discussed (not necessarily in this order).

    WordPress 3.9 RC1 is live and security releases

    3.9 RC1 was released for testing. Please continue to abuse and try to break. Security related updates for 3.8.2 and 3.7.2 were released as well.

    There was some discussion about QuickPress (or Quick Draft) possibly being broken for 3.x.2 but that was unconfirmed as that’s not a feature many of us in the IRC chat use. Part of that concern is that other thing may have broken and that QuickPress (or QuickDraft) might just be a symptom.

    Next Wednesday April 16th is the targeted release date of WordPress 3.9. For now there are daily core IRC meetups at 20:00 UTC on #wordpress-dev for this effort.

    Forum topics regarding auto updates

    With the auto updates of 3.8 (and 3.7) there have been some topics regarding the patches and the notification emails from the WordPress installations.

    The auto updates are only for minor release number updates. So 3.8.1 will update to 3.8.2 but it will not update to 3.9. The major version number release upgrades have to be initiated manually in the WordPress dashboard.

    The auto updates can be tuned and that includes disabling update emails. In the majority of cases a minor point release should not break anything. It’s really encouraged that users leave the auto updates in place.

    That said, please understand that users who post to the forums about the auto updates have a problem and are looking for support. If you can help them out please do so but keep it positive and productive. Don’t reply if you are angry or reacting to someone else being upset.

    Make/support has a Blue Welcome box now

    Thanks to Kim Parsell the make/support has a blue welcome box with really helpful verbiage. It matches the other make blogs and I hope will encourage more people to participate in support.

    Plugin authors getting notification emails

    A lot of miscellaneous code changes will impact plugin developers, who for one reason or another, were doing things incorrectly. Some of those may have had a legitimate reason for doing that but those plugins will break with 3.9.

    To attempt to head that off the plugins team will be sending an email and a post will be published on make/core. The email and the replies will probably back up the plugin review queue. If there are any complaints about the queue then please ask them to be patient.

    Today’s IRC meetup transcript can be read via this link.

    Docs Team Update: Apr. 3, 2014 

    The following is a summary of the topics that were discussed during our weekly Docs chat.

    1. DevHub: Work continues on the parser, and has resumed on the code reference theme.

    2. Admin Help: @Clorith said the team is still reviewing existing user tests to identify pain points in admin areas that haven’t been updated since the original tests were conducted.

    3. Handbooks: @blobaugh is currently reviewing the existing content in the Plugin Developer Handbook. He also plans to review content in the Codex to see what can be moved over to the handbook. @sewmyheadon wasn’t able to attend the chat, but sent a reminder about this weekend’s Seattle Docs Meetup – Saturday, April 5th at 10am PDT. You can also attend virtually in the #wordpress-sfd IRC channel.

    4. Docs Conferences: The list of talks was announced Thursday for Write The Docs NA. Both @siobhan and @DrewAPicture will be speaking – “Writing For Your Other Half” and “Putting the (docs) Cart Before the (standards) Horse“.

    5. Handbooks Master List: @DrewAPicture asked whether there should be a master list of all the handbooks (core/plugin dev/theme dev/team-specific) and who the point of contact for each is. If so, where should that live? The handbooks the Docs team is responsible for are listed in our handbook. It was suggested we could include a list of handbooks available on other Make sites in our handbook, with a link to each handbook and a point of contact.

    You can read the chat logs here.

    Support Team Update for April 3rd 

    Today’s meetup was light and the following item was discussed.

    WordPress 3.9 release date and more testing

    The release date was officially announced as April 16th and it was discussed that an RC1 may be useful.

    I mentioned that I ran into a problem with the 3.9 beta but I was using an events plugin and have not been able to reproduce it. That was on one installation; I have had no problems with another 3.9 beta install.

    The transcript of today’s meetup can be found at this link.
