Meetup Roundup – Aug 29

New Rep

Howdy folks, this is my first week as the new rep for the Docs Team and I’m grateful for the opportunity. Holler if there’s anything I can help with. 🙂

Add Media in the Codex

Since there isn’t any official documentation for adding new media in WP 3.6, the ever-helpful @DrewAPicture has graciously volunteered to work on a new Codex doc (Inserting Media into Posts and Pages) that will build upon the existing Inserting Images into Posts and Pages Codex article to now include audio and video as well.

Once this page is complete, we’ll copy the appropriate content into Handbooks, if needed.


We’re still working on both 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 and Theme dev Handbooks and could use all the help we can get.

@hanni is heading up production of both Handbooks and will be checking in with those involved to get updates and provide direction and will have more to report next week. 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.

The talented @saracannon is reviewing the Balsamiq mockups for the Handbook design and plans on diving into design this weekend and should have more info next meeting.
