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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party/theme update, and an increase in function calls to get_locale(), to the known issues for WordPress 4.6.1.

Forum Upgrade Status

The official ETA is that everything will be done when it’s done.

We have nothing to add to our list of things that would be nice for Moderators and other volunteers to have and the list of known issues at this time, but please do take a look at the first tickets from the bbPress Moderation Workgroup, and we have a patch for a moderation notice.

WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. US Preliminary Plans

WordCamp US 2016 will be December 2 – 4 with the Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. on December 4.

The plan as of now is to help intro new support volunteers at Contributor Day. At this time, 10 current volunteers have confirmed that they will be available to help with that. The team also expressed interest in establishing some sort of bootleg/overflow Happiness Bar again, if the opportunity presents itself.
