Our discussion this meeting further refined the focus of this project, to be a solution “… pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party and theme developers can leverage, again instead of using admin_notices.”

Present handling of admin_notices will require distinction between immediate (core) based notifications such as successful saves, and a queue of notifications to be followed up on at a later time.

This project seeks to pave the way so future projects can build upon the new notifications handling. Enhancementenhancement Enhancements are simple improvements to WordPress, such as the addition of a hook, a new feature, or an improvement to an existing feature. such as mail or push notifications handling, will be able to leverage the processing we create here.
