TagTag Tag is one of the pre-defined taxonomies in WordPress. Users can add tags to their WordPress posts along with categories.

  • Help & feedback wanted:
    • @evarlese asked about moderation: Likewise, I’m wondering about moderation. Will PTEs, GTEs, and global mentors be able to moderate discussions? It might be helpful to take some practices from the Support team for adding flags, notes, etc. (or use what’s already available in forum profiles). Now that people have some experience with comments, is there a need for specific tools at the moment?
    • In the last meeting, @psmits1567 commented he found confusing the “Reply” and “Post comment” buttons. He proposed to hide the bottom form in the discussion page and show a new “Create a new thread” button to show the bottom form. Below, we propose a solution to this problem. Take a look at the “Hiding the bottom form” section.

Hiding the bottom form

When you are replying to a comment at the bottom of the page, you will see 2 different forms, so it could be confusing.

We propose to hide it. Take a look to the next GIF.

Dashboard for the discussion system

We want to make a dashboard for the discussion system to allow users easy access to a list of the latest comments, comment statistics and many more:

  • Similar dashboard with different content for the GTEGeneral Translation Editor A General Translation Editor (often referred to as GTE) is a person, who has global access to validate strings on all projects for a specific locale., PTEProject Translation Editor A Project Translation Editor (often referred to as PTE) is a person, who has access to validate strings on a specific project (for example BuddyPress, WooCommerce or Twenty Fourteen) for one specific locale.

The cross-locale project translation editor can import/validate strings on a specific project for more than one locale. This role has the same capabilities as a Project Translation Editor over multiple locales instead of one. Cross-Locale Project Translation Editors need to meet a set of criteria before being appointed by General Translation Editors. and translators. It will display the last comments limited to language (GTE) or language & project (PTE) or project (CLPTE).

We will start with the GTE dashboard:

  • Overview of all comments in a language.
  • It should be visible if another GTE is already involved in a thread.
  • It should show the number of comments in the thread.
  • Reply inline? Maybe later, for now just a link to the right comment (with reply open?)

Discussion system

The new discussion system allows you to make comments around a translation. A validatorValidator See translation editor. (GTE, PTE, CLPTE) can make comments to bulk rejections and when she rejects, approves or sets as fuzzy the stringString A string is a translatable part of the software. A translation consists of a multitude of localized strings..

A validator can add comments to bulk rejections.

You can add comments to bulk rejections.

And can add comments to single strings, when she rejects, approves or sets as fuzzy the string.

To access the full discussion for this string, you have to click on the “contextual menu” and then you have to click on the “Discussion” link.

Here you have 3 tabs:

  • The default tab has the discussion.
  • The second tab has the translation history.
  • The third tab has the translation in other localesLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico. A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/.

At the bottom, you can start a new conversation related with the string.

The system sends some email notifications. The notifications are opt-in. To receive it, you have to opt-in here.

These are the notifications the system sends:

  • The translator will receive a notification when a validator makes a bulk rejection or rejects, approves or sets as fuzzy a single string.
  • The developer receives a notification when someone asks something around a “typo in the English text” or request more context for the translation.
  • The GTE/PTE/CLPTE will receive a notification when someone replies to a notification she made before or when someone asks something related with her language and/or pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.
