Support Internship Update: Week 14

Hey everyone. This is the last week of the OPW internship period, however, as I took two weeks out for my backpacking trip, I’ll be hanging around a little longer than expected. 🙂 In my two week make-up time (next week and the week after) I’ve been asked to create some tutorials/documentation on troubleshooting problems in order to help newcomers to the forums.

Last week, I submitted my first two patches to coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. These were towards the 3.7 effort to add Inline-Docs to all the hooksHooks In WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same. in core ( The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. Special thanks go to @kpdesign for encouraging and helping me to submit my first patch, and also to @DrewAPicture and @tierra for their help via the #wordpress-sfd IRC channel. Everyone was really quick to offer their time and help, it really made me happy to be a part of the WP community, so thanks everyone.

I’m hoping to submit some more Inline-Doc patches this week, in addition to helping out as much as possible on the forums. 🙂
