Handbooks Weekly Chat update

@samuelsidler was out today so I lead the discussion. @sewmyheadon was also unable to attend so chat centered around 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party handbook.

  • Shortcodes section is almost complete (Thanks @topher1kenobe!)
  • We need someone who knows how TinyMCE renders shortcodes in the editor to round out the section
  • The plugin spreadsheet is being updated on an on going basis
  • Some relevant content from the Codex is being moved into the handbook (E.G. CPTs)
  • Instead of randomly attacking the list we are more purposefully moving section by section.

We still need more volunteer writers! If you want to get involved drop me a line at ben@lobaugh.net or pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” me on IRC.

Honorable mention was @jerrysarcastic sarcasm 😉
