@mikeschroder @andrewtaylor-1 @jadonn @antpb @brettface @dws122 @robertjacobi @rachelwhitton @pdclark


Hosting Best Practices Documentation

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.

  • @danielbachhuber was out today, but @mikeschroder reported that the ‘Try Gutenberg’ callout has been pushed back to WordPress 4.9.7 instead of WordPress 4.9.6.
  • @mikeschroder asked for an update from @pdclark and @jadonn on coordinating Gutenberg-specific documentation to help hosts prepare for ‘Try Gutenberg’.
    • @jadonn did not have any updates.
    • @pdclark suggested having a collaboration session with Google Docs to develop documentation.
    • @rachelwhitton, @jadonn, @brettface liked the idea of using Google Docs and collaborating together more closely.
      • @andrewtaylor-1 mentioned some people he knew would be interested in collaborating on a shared Gutenberg support document when that effort gets started.
  • @pdclark volunteered to create a shared Google Doc document for collaborating on Gutenberg support documentation for hosts.
