Editor Chat Agenda: February 6th

This is the agenda for the weekly editor chat meeting on Wednesday, 6th February 2019, 14:00 GMT.


  • Release: GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ 5.0
  • Project Update: Porting Widgets to Blocks

Call for Collaboration (REST APIREST API The REST API is an acronym for the RESTful Application Program Interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. It is how the front end of an application (think “phone app” or “website”) can communicate with the data store (think “database” or “file system”) https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/. and Media teams)

Tasks Coordination

Open Floor

  • @nerrad: Handling support type requests in the slackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. #core-editor chat. I notice sometimes they are just getting ignored. Should we start actively directing people to the forums for them now? What ways could we make it more visible that the channel is not the place for general support?

If you have anything to propose to add to the agenda or specific items related to those listed above, please leave a comment below.

This meeting is held in the #core-editor channel in the Making WordPress Slack.
