Chat Summary – Sept 6

Okay our first to do list for everyone!

If you go to the User Manual you’ll see a list of pages, but below that is a section with checkboxes, and here’s how we’re going to handle this.

We’re going to be making sub-pages like – When we’re ready to work on a master topic (about wordpress), we’ll stub out the page for people to get started.

  1. Pick a page you want to do
  2. If the page exists under see if it’s good to go. If so, just move it over.
  3. If there’s no page (like there’s no ‘how to FTPFTP FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol which is a way of moving computer files from one computer to another via the Internet. You can use software, known as a FTP client, to upload files to a server for a WordPress website.’ page) create it under user-manual/topic/
  4. Edit the page.
  5. Check the box on the manual page to say you did it
  6. Have a beer

The draft handbook is the one at and was what we copied over from .com. The reason we’re going to move/delete the pages is so that if we have leftovers when we’re done, we can review them and see if they’re useful.

Now some of you will say “I can’t make a page!” Okay, that’s true. Do you want to be able to make pages? Just ask. I made a Request Editor Access page so anyone can post there and I’ll follow up with you.

As a heads up, next week we’ll be having an extra hour, because we want to dedicate it to the WordPress settings. So on the 13th, we’ll go through each topic under that, edit, and finalize those pages 🙂 People will be available in IRC for help and such, and if you want to get your feet wet with water wings, I suggest you come on by IRC next week for that!
