April 21st Support Team Meeting Summary

WordPress 4.5, how’s it looking so far?

We have added items for an upload issue under older Imagick versions, as well as an issue with TinyMCE under WordPress installed by Plesk, to the master list.

WordPress 4.5.1, schedule and planned fixes.

A release candidate for WordPress 4.5.1 is planned for today, and will include fixes detailed at the linked post.

Please test this when it’s ready to ensure that we don’t need a 4.5.2 as soon as it’s released (which is planned for Monday or Tuesday).

Edit: It’s here: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2016/04/22/4-5-1-release-candidate/

You are also strongly urged to blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. their email from your personal mail if you suspect they’re going to get crazy. You do not need to take anyone’s abuse.

Support Badges

@kenshino will be sending a new list of people to get Support Team and Contributor badges by the end of this week. Support liaisons in non-English forums are strongly encouraged to update their lists if necessary, please.


HelpHub is around 60% developed. Articles are being migrated, but many of our Codex articles are the result of years of patchwork. Many of them require re-writing. @kenshino will call on the Support Team members to adopt articles for rewriting, perhaps ones that you use often, maybe in a month or 2.

If any Support Team members would like to assist with HelpHub now, please contact @justingreerbbi or @kenshino.
