Forums Status Update (Sept 7)

Happy 4.6.1 day.

  • Reviews are back.
  • Plugin authors and contributors are listed as authors and contributors
  • RSS feeds for individual plugin forums are working
  • Topic subscriptions should be working. Existing subs are still being imported.

The direct urls to your reviews will be https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/akismet/reviews/#new-post — I don’t know if that’s forever.

The amount of data being imported is causing everything to take longer than expected, in order to do this without crashing the servers. Which would be bad. That’s also why some posts are showing out of order. This is the biggest bbPress install ever, I suspect…

ETA on everything? We don’t know. It’s all taking longer than we hoped.

Akismet has also been acting a prat and spamming people so if that happens, swing by the #forums slack and ask if they can have a look for you 🙂 Please ask nicely and offer coffee.
