Support Team Update for August 21st

Another small agenda makes for another small meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on will help you find options in your area.. 🙂

Items discussed at this week’s #wordpress-sfd support meetup:

WordPress 4.0 BetaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. ongoing

The beta appears to be coming along smoothly, and we are of course eagerly awaiting the RCRelease Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge..

No new earth-shattering Alpha/Beta threads to mention.

The rest of the meetup was spend recapping the OMG WTF BBQ 4.0 post, and poking a bit around 4.0 ourselves, where @clorith discovered a fun display oddity regarding pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party review stars appearing as numbers instead in the review tab of the plugin details panel.

Just a reminder that the new Media library can be toggled between the new grid view and the old list view, so that’s than easy work-around for anyone encountering a plugin which breaks the new grid view in 4.0.
