Some pre-release to do items:

  • Add Twenty Ten to the themes directory
  • Finish importer POT files and text domain loading
  • Tag all importers
  • Setup MU -> 3.0 upgrade handling for The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. ( we need to make a 3.0 package with a wordpress-mu root to satisfy MU’s update-core.php)

Hailin got a start on adding paging to the walker. Need to take this and hook it up to wp_list_comments() to allow comment paging.

We need to find someone to pick up the theme update and install work. The hookups to are already in. Much of the job can be done with a cut-and-paste of the 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party update and install code. Any takers?

More postboxes:

  • The Comments on this Post postbox lists all comments when editing posts. That could be quite a lot sometimes. Perhaps we can have a button there “Show the comments on this Post” or similar that would pull them with AJAX, 15-20 at a time.
  • The Post Slug postbox doubles the functionality of the Permalink that pops-up under the title. Don’t think we need both, we can either add the whole permalink to the postbox, or remove it completely.
  • The Custom Fields and Categories postboxes need to be using floated DIVs or similar, so they scale well when in the right sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme.. Perhaps we should hide the comments listing from Comments on this Post when it’s on the right, don’t think they can fit there.

Postboxes: The Custom Fields postbox …


  • The Custom Fields postbox is very unintuitive (there’s even a ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. about that, #7541). Suggestion: perhaps emphasis the Name/Value fields and add proper labels (“Key” would probably be better as “Name”); replace the drop-down with a scrollable list of previously used “names” that would be copied to the “Name” text field on-click.
  • The Categories postbox would perhaps need some redesign, both functionality and look. We can store the 20-30 most used cats as array (or even prepared as UL) in the db and show that whenever needed; then have “All Categories” pull the rest with AJAX and “Add New” pull the drop-down cats with AJAX too. That would speed things up nicely on Write Post/Page and Manage Posts/Pages screens (Quick Edit lists the cats there).

The Quick Edit for posts/pages looks quite bad especially on narrow screens, thinking of making all fields floated DIVs so it can wrap into 2 rows and have enough space to properly show them. Question: when a column is hidden in the table, are we also going to hide the corresponding field while editing? Similar look would also be used for the batch editing, minus the Title and Slug fields (are we making it possible to batch-add cats and tags?).

UI Todo

Some of my short term UIUI User interface todos:

  • Add edit and delete links and column hiding to Categories, Tags, Link Categories, and Users index pages.
  • Add column hiding to Comments index.
  • Update edit comment form publish box to new style, move View comment link into publish box
  • Add Advanced Options to edit comment form.
  • Hide threaded comment reply links by default. Enable with JSJS JavaScript, a web scripting language typically executed in the browser. Often used for advanced user interfaces and behaviors..
  • Fix default theme styling to make threaded comments look good.
  • Move image options from the Misc settings page to a new Media settings page

If you want to work on any of these, let me know.
