Recap of ticket scrub on August 29th

I will be AFK on 2017-09-12, so the next Ticket Scrub meeting will be in four weeks, 2017-09-26 19:00 UTC, in #meta-wordcamp.

Here is a summary of this week’s discussion:

Participants: @coreymckrill @sergeybiryukov @xkon


The latest patch from @grapplerulrich is ready to commit. @coreymckrill will add a slight wording tweak to it to clarify the Coming Soon notification:

Coming Soon mode is enabled. Site subscribers will not receive email notifications about published posts.


After the last scrub, @iandunn provided some clarification about the functionality in the current patch for this ticket:

If we don’t create menus at all, then the layout often breaks because the custom CSS assumes that they’re there. It wouldn’t make sense to add links to missing pages, though, and there aren’t any pages on the destination site yet, so it seemed like creating menus with just a Home link was the best we could do.

… I wonder if we could copy over the menu items for links that do exist on the destination site? A lot of pages like Location, Contact, etc are pre-populated, so they’ll exist. We could just skip the pages that don’t exist.

We decided it would be best to pursue the additional functionality suggested by Ian before committing, so that the menus wouldn’t just contain a “Home” link, which could be just as confusing as a broken layout.

@coreymckrill will update the ticket to see if the patch author wants to try making the update.


The patches provided by @kau-boy look good. @coreymckrill will do an additional round of local testing and then commit them, and then @kau-boy can update the handbook with documentation on the new shortcode attributes.


This one has an extensive patch from @xkon that has already been tested successfully on Since it involves remote requests, it just needs a security review before we merge it into the plugin.

@xkon also mentioned a fork of Tagregator that they built that is completely PHP-based instead of having a React component:

These two tickets will enable more flexibility for the meetings functionality on Meta sites, which will allow us to include this meeting (since it is biweekly instead of every week)!

Recap of ticket scrub on August 15th

@sergeybiryukov and I held down the fort for this week’s ticket scrub.

The next Ticket Scrub meeting will be in two weeks, 2017-08-29 19:00 UTC, in #meta-wordcamp.

Here is a summary of this week’s discussion:

#2571-meta, #2886-meta

These are both minor code updates that already have patches submitted by @sergeybiryukov. The first one is ready for @coreymckrill to commit. We decided to have @sergeybiryukov adjust the second one a bit to remove title attributes from some HTML tags, since those are no longer recommended for accessibility reasons.

#1097-meta, #2973-meta

These are both related to adjusting the list table view of camp attendees to allow for sorting by last name. @sergeybiryukov volunteered to look into writing a patch.


This ticket relates to copying custom menus over when cloning a WordCamp site. It already has a patch, but @coreymckrill was unsure if this was really a desired behavior. While the navigation menu would theoretically look the same as the finished site that has been cloned, the downside is that it may create menu items for pages that don’t actually exist in the new site yet, and may not even be needed.

@coreymckrill said he would follow up on the ticket to clarify the intent and usefulness of the change.


This ticket is about adding some extra meta data for WordCamps that include a Contributor Day. A couple of different approaches are suggested in the ticket, but no patch has been submitted yet. @coreymckrill said he would follow up to see if any of the ticket participants would still be interested in working on a patch.


Part of this ticket has been completed, because the Edit Flow plugin has now been installed on the network. The other part, to make some adjustments so that all of Edit Flow’s modules are turned off by default on new sites, still needs some discussion and a patch. @coreymckrill said he would start a new ticket for that, and close this old ticket.
