March 9th Support Team Meeting Summary


  • Please make sure that you have upgraded to WordPress 4.7.3.
  • Please make sure that you’re using the latest Also Viewing script, released about a month ago (and most recently updated last week).
  • We don’t know how much longer the Codex will be around, so please link to the new Forum Welcome in our Handbook for all appropriate instances, rather than the old one on the Codex.
  • Please be aware of some proposals for deprecating support for certain browser versions.

WordPress 4.7.3

An issue affecting certain file uploads was fixed in WordPress 4.7.3, so it has been removed from the known issues for 4.7, but we have added an issue where MP3 uploads are split into two files.

Meeting Time Change

Daylight Savings Time will be arrive for many of our contributors on March 12 and for most of the rest of our contributors on March 26 (with a few lucky contributors who never have to observe Daylight Savings Time).

We held a vote on whether we should keep the meeting at 17:00 UTC or move it to 16:00 UTC, and moving the meeting to 16:00 UTC won with the most up-votes and absolutely no down-votes, so we’ll be moving the meeting to 16:00 UTC effective next week.

This means that the next meeting will be Thursday, March 16, 2017, 16:00 UTC, which is the really the same time for anyone who will have their Daylight Savings Time change on March 12, and only an hour earlier for the rest who won’t change until March 26 (unless you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to observe Daylight Savings Time).

Because time zones are complicated, we’ll hold a “Is this still what we want?” vote during the next meeting and again during the March 30 meeting.
