AH-O₂ Update — 20 January, 2014

We had several people missing today, so the meeting was short. A few items of note:

Help Overview styling

The overviews have gotten some attention and now look a lot better. I believe there’s still more to be done to make these responsive, but they are now only showing based on your profile setting and are no longer weirdly centered (thanks @mdbitz!)

New tooltips

There aren’t any new tooltips on the plugins page, but a few were added to the Posts page, for your viewing pleasure. Tooltips still need some styling, though.

New meeting time(?)

I’ve been asked if it would be possible to move our meeting time. I’m currently proposing a revised meeting time of Monday 18:30UTC unless there are any serious objections.

Cross-posting to UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing.

I’ve also been asked to post over on make/ui because we’re getting to the point where we might want — and benefit from — more exposure over there. I’ll still be posting here because we’re sort of a hybrid project and I still want to involve the docs team in the documentation side of things. Which leads me to…

Documentation for the documentation 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!

We’ve started writing some docs on how to add docs to the plugin. @mdbitz (with the help of @jdgrimes) has written a doc covering the help overview (which is the part that’s refactoring the existing help tab). Anyone wanting to make changes to the content that is inside of the help overview that exists in AH-O2 should review this doc first to know how to do it.


We’re still working on getting documentation up for how to add tooltips and tooltip handles.

Testers wanted!

So, please help test! I’ve been reporting bugs as I see them, and we’ve seen some odd issues that only seem to happen in certain environments. The more people testing the plugin out the more we can confirm whether these are environment issues or actual bugs. Please report any bugs you find (or test out any of the bugs already reported and comment on the open tickets) here: https://github.com/jazzsequence/WordPress-Admin-Help/issues?state=open
