Summary for HelpHub Bug Scrub 31 August 2017

There were no closed issues or pull requests since our last bug scrubs. However, we had a good discussion about home page template and search functionality. These are going to be the main focus in following period. We are hoping to have intuitive search and helpful home page in order to prevent asking the same questions in forums.

Home Page Template

Home page template discussion is happening here. Please feel free to join, everyone’s opinion is welcomed.

Search Epic

Initial plans included Elastic Search for search functionality. This is something we want to apply with addition to possible usage of WP REST APIREST API The REST API is an acronym for the RESTful Application Program Interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. It is how the front end of an application (think “phone app” or “website”) can communicate with the data store (think “database” or “file system”) for refining search results via filters. Again, feel free to join discussion, share experiences and ideas, or even code. Any help is welcomed.

Issues/PRs under Search epic: #8, #9, #47 and #37.
