Docs Chat: June 19, 2014

Thank you to everyone who came.

The following is a summary of the topics discussed:

1. DevHub: @samuelsidler said Post2Posts still needs to be implemented with the parser. @coffee2code has implemented source code on the individual pages, and is working on implementing the examples functionality. The handbook 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 has been updated with the required changes.

2. Handbooks: Some progress was made this week, mostly in the Plugin Developer handbook. @blobaugh and @sewmyheadon will add the anticipated new permalinks for each page to the spreadsheets for their respective handbooks. Once that is done, @samuelsidler plans to manually migrate over completed handbook pages, one section at a time, to their permanent home on 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. Adjustments will be made to the handbook theme and plugin, as needed, during content migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies.. Contributor information is being gathered, and will be included on the Credits page in each handbook.

3. Docs Issue Tracker: Development has stagnated on the project, and there most likely isn’t any developer time available right now. I’ll be going through the alpha release post comments, and creating TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. tickets for suggested changes so the discussion can continue on the tickets.

4. Trac Tickets: @DrewAPicture brought up a new ticket that could be an interesting cross-team effort between CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress., Support, and Docs: #28551 – Add Better Debugging Documentation Into wp-config.php. In addition to providing more debug constants and documentation, the current user sections of the file can be improved with better inline documentation.
