Content Migration or Editing Content Migration or Editing

Some pages need to be migrated from current Codex article, or modified. If you would like to assist with migrating or editing articles, these are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Pick an article that you would like to migrate or edit. Search “Not Assigned” in Column ‘G’ (Migrator) or ‘H’ (Editor) in the
  2. Replace “Not Assigned” by your Slack username to reserve it and update the status in Column ‘I’ (Comment).
  3. Request access to http://wphelphub.com/ by sending 1) your WordPress.org account 2) e-mail address to @atachibana on Slack via direct message.
  4. Create a new post on HelpHub and copy the content from the Codex article into it, or edit existing article.
    • You can manually copy the content or you can choose to the Codex Migration Tool that @atachibana created. An explanation of the tool is provided on this blog post.
  5. Edit the content, paying particular attention to the following:
    • Default editor is Gutenberg. Unfortunately almost all articles are one big block. You may use Classic Editor, or Work with some difficulties…
    • Simple is best – delete narrative sentences or change them to bullet or numbered list.
    • Use simple language – understanding is key!
    • Use semantic headings: No <H1> in the article content – start sections with H2s and work down from there where appropriate.
  6. Add screenshots where appropriate – if the article is describing any user interface element then it must include a screenshot.
  7. Ping to #docs channel after completing editing it.
