More than 10 attendees actively participating led us to improve and expand the Handbook.

For starters, a more detailed description of what the team is and what it does has been added, and the approval processes have been improved.

The new Compatibility page was published and the Server Environment for WordPress 6.0 page has been updated (dropping the mcrypt ticket).

In addition, information about automatic updates have been included, and some research was done on WP_MEMORY_LIMIT, about which a proposal will be submitted to #core in the coming weeks.

I want to give special thanks to @mikeschroder for continuing to help the team and making work and life much easier for everyone. Moreover, thanks to everybody involved direct or passively because we “bothered” many of those who were there with doubts and proposals for improvement, and they gave us their best answers.

Help with the Gutenberg Migration Guide at Contributor Day

Looking for something to do at Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.? We could use your help!

The Gutenberg Migration Guide is a crowdsourcing project to document WordPress Classic Editor customization points and their GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ equivalents (if such exist). media_buttons is the quintessential example; whereas you might’ve used this action previously in the Classic Editor to register a button, it no longer exists in Gutenberg and the blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. inserter is its direct equivalent.

We want the migrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. guide to be as comprehensive as it can be. This is defined as:

  1. Identifying as many integration points as we can find. For instance, there are already 14 actions / filters listed. Some are commonly used, while others are not. As long as we have a good example for how the integration point is used, it makes sense to include in the guide.
  2. Whenever possible, documenting how feature parity can be achieved with Gutenberg. Some integration points do already have Gutenberg equivalents. Others don’t yet, and that’s alright.

You can help make the migration guide more comprehensive. If you don’t have any examples of your own to include, here are a couple of places you can start looking:

  • Our plugin compatibility database has a good number of plugins marked incompatible. Some even have descriptions of the problems!
  • The [Type] Plugin / Theme Interoperability and Backwards Compatibility labels in the Gutenberg GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

Everyone can contribute to the migration guide, regardless of skill set. All you need to do is open a new GitHub issue and report the incompatibility you’ve found. Screenshots and GIFs are tremendously helpful. If you know the underlying problem, then please include that too. If all you know is that a given pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.

Identifying examples of breakage are what we need help with most.
