If you’re interested in upgrading to the new theme now, make sure you’ve fully translated the new theme and leave a comment below.

Find an issue with the new theme? Report it on meta trac in the Support Forums component.

To test your forums with the new theme you can append /?new-theme=1 to the URL, for example https://ca.wordpress.org/support/?new-theme=1.

Rosetta Forum Upgrades In Progress – reposting from make/meta

Hey polyglots,

Some of you might have noticed that the metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. team has started migrating existing forums to bbPress2.

Here’s @jmdodd‘s post from make/meta:

Rosetta Forum Upgrades In Progress

There are also new stringsString A string is a translatable part of the software. A translation consists of a multitude of localized strings. added to the Forums project: https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/meta/forums so it would be great if we can get the forums fully translated before all of them migrate.

We’ve been waiting for this for a while and it’s finally happening – thank you meta team <3

P.S. Next step – RosettaRosetta The code name of the theme for the local WordPress sites (eg. bg.wordpress.org is a “Rosetta” site). All locale specific WordPress sites are referred to as “Rosetta sites.” The name was inspired from the ancient Rosetta Stone, which contained more or less the same text in three different languages.

Plugin forums excluded from "view all topics" and "no replies"

Our forum moderatorForum Moderator Forum Moderators are active contributors who moderate their local support forums. Generally, these contributors get the permission to moderate from a forum admin of their language after contributing to the forums for a while. Moderators can be added by the local forum admins or the Polyglots team leads. @gatespace noticed that none of the topics from our Plugins and Hacks forums are showing up under “view all topics” and “no replies” views.

  • Plugins and Hacks: https://ja.forums.wordpress.org/forum/5
  • https://ja.forums.wordpress.org/view/all-topics
  • https://ja.forums.wordpress.org/view/no-replies

We looked around and this seems to be the case for the Spanish forums too. Our guess is that the forums with ID = 5 are excluded from those two views, since the English forums treat the Plugins forums somewhat differently.

Could we get the plugins related topics back, so they won’t be overlooked?

Hi,
I’d like to request Lithuanian WordPress Forums:

(1) URL: https://lt.forums.wordpress.org/
(2) Forums title: WordPress forumai
(3) First forum title: “Problemos ir sprendimai” Description: “Klausk ir tau bus atsakyta”

Neither @pokeraitis nor me has permission to commit, but we have #4 & #5 files from this list https://codex.wordpress.org/International_WordPress_Forums and bbPress is translated on LT locale.

Please let me know how should we proceed further.

Thanks!

First of all, if I visit the page of a forums thread that has a URL starting with http:// and then click “Admin”, I get redirected to the forums homepage. If I visit the same URL using https instead of http, I get a certificate error. If I tell Chrome to ignore that and then click “Admin”, it works.

Secondly, we’re experiencing trouble with an user account. A user whom I’ve been in touch with on several occasions during the years keeps getting his account marked as BOZO for some reason (maybe it’s Akismet? I don’t have sufficient access permissions to check.) Could you please investigate into that? I think it’s about the fifth time in, say, two years that I’m cancelling the bozo flag on his account and marking his posts as “not spam”. It’s pretty annoying. By the way, this time I also checked the “Akismet Always Trust” flag on his account page. Maybe this will help?

Thanks. 🙂

Our forum volunteers noticed that the “hot topic” section of the Japanese forum top page is now filled with spammy tags.

From bb-admin, I can see a bunch of posts from bozo users with such tags. The posts themselves are no longer appearing, but looks like the hot topic section is ignoring the bozo status.

The same issue with other local forums, e.g. http://de.forums.wordpress.org and http://nl.forums.wordpress.org

On all international forum start pages (https://xx.forums.wordpress.org/) the search forum doesn’t search the specific forum, but only the main forum (https://wordpress.org/search/test?forums=1 instead of https://nl.forums.wordpress.org/search.php?search=test&forum_id=0) – is this intentional? Or a bug?

Thank you very much! There is a little bit of activity there after the WCEU …

And could you add German as a language for the WordCamp base theme (https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wordcamp-theme), and make me a validator, that would be great. Maybe it could be used in the next year …
