We had our weekly chat today and talked about a few things.
- Forums: We’re still waiting for one issue to get fixed in bbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. https://bbpress.org. before we can enable initial forums for the Italian community.
- Translate: Lots of great progress.
- Design implementation is done.
- Paging is done. Basic search is part of it as well.
- Import scripts are done for themes and in-progress for plugins.
- @dd32 tested an import of all themes and it works! 🎉
- Role plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party design changes are still pending, but the design is ready, so it’s just a matter of implementation.
Because of the progress on themes, we think we can do the initial import for themes very soon. It’s know that there will be issues, especially in categorizing and sorting through all ~1500 active themes that will be imported. We’ll work through those issues, fix them, and be ever-more ready for plugins.
Also, because we’re so close, I posted on make/polyglots and make/themes to give them the heads up and added some documentation to the translator handbook to walk through how some of this will work on their end.
As we get closer to the initial import of plugins, there will be a post on make/plugins and we will email plugin authors ahead of time, with a specific date, so they have an opportunity to commit any missing translations to SVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/..
