4.1 Docs Updates

There are a number of updates that need to be made for 4.1 to both the handbooks and the Codex.


There are several posts on Make/Core about changes in 4.1 that affect the developer handbooks:

Themes: New Template Tags in 4.1

Queries Improvements:

Shared Terms: An Update on Shared Term Splitting

Customizer API Improvements: JS/Underscore-template-rendered Custom Customizer Controls in WordPress 4.1

I still need to add a list of Codex pages here that will need to be updated with the content from these posts.

Codex Updates:

The following are the pages that need updated or created in the Codex.

If you would like to help, please leave a comment indicating which page you would like to work on.

New default theme:

  • Twenty Fifteen page. We can use some of this content. Note: The custom color screenshots are slightly different from the .org version. Takashi Irie provided some screenshots that reflect the default colors available: https://cloudup.com/cNHOeJVOq-k (@kpdesign)

New features:

  • New Distraction-Free Writing and inline image editing toolbar in Post editor – https://codex.wordpress.org/Posts_Add_New_Screen and https://codex.wordpress.org/Pages_Add_New_Screen
  • New sessions logout button on Profile page – https://codex.wordpress.org/Users_Your_Profile_Screen
  • New Recommendations tab on Plugin Install page – https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins_Add_New_Screen
  • New translation installation setting on General Settings and Network Settings pages – https://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_General_Screen and https://codex.wordpress.org/Network_Admin_Settings_Screen
  • Appearance menu – Header and Background menu items now link directly to the Customizer.
