December 15th Support Team Meeting Summary

Announcements

WordPress 4.7

An issue with comment pagination and a conflict between Twenty Seventeen and older versions of Font Awesome were added to the known issues for 4.7.

Tagging

After a great discussion, we decided that we’d like to pursue implementing some sort of tag suggester/matcher based on the content of your support request. This will particularly help feature developers keep track of support requests after launch.

Currently, however, manually adding a tag to a topic still requires either editing or adding a reply. This will be fixed eventually, and we’ll wait for that first before we pursue the tag suggester/matcher.

Until then, we have added a new section on tagging to the Forum Welcome.

Following Home

“Following home” is what we call the action of contacting moderators and other forum users outside of the forums when not solicited. Plain and simple, this is harassment, and it’s already detailed twice in the forum rules, so don’t do it.

If you are routinely followed home from the forums, you might want to consider this great plugin from Support Team member @sterndata.
