MigrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. Updates

@geoffreyshilling @juhise @normalize reports that they are actively migrating articles. @atachibana will be finishing up his portion of the migration and will head towards migrating the WordPress Version articles

If migrators see any theme function related articles, they should do the following

  1. Leave a short explanation on the subject matter
  2. Leave a link towards the theme handbook on Devhub eg.

@Kenshino reminded all migrators to replace Codex links with Devhub links (when applicable).

Design Updates

@greensteph has partially finished the single view of the WP Versions Custom Post Type. It looks great and she’ll be continuing her work here

It was suggested to strip the empty headings off the single article view so the article could concisely show what was changed.

@Kenshino suggested that stripping made sense, however, creating a section that lists Components that were not updated would be more inclusive.

@adamsilverstein enlightened us how the WP Versions (current) Codex articles are created. This will surely help to drive design decisions.

Development Updates

The WordPress Versions CPT was created and added onto was updated with the fixed versions of Helphub Post Type and Read Time. So migrators should stop seeing any warnings/notices that makes migration hard.

@carlalberto and @Kenshino will be working on the templates and styles for WordPress Version archive and single pages.

Codex Translations – how can we be inclusive?

Redirecting the English articles effectively makes any translate Codex articles tough to find.

A provisional decision was made to put a deprecated notice on the English articles for users to be manually directed to the new Helphub articles. This will give time for the translation editors to find a best solution for their community.

After a given amount of time, the auto redirection will be put in.
