May 25th Support Team Meeting Summary


WordPress 4.7.5

We have nothing new to add to the known issues for 4.7 this week.

WordPress 4.8 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. 2

WordPress 4.8 Beta 2 is here! Please make sure that you’re testing via something like the Beta Tester plugin, Varying Vagrant Vagrants, or Chassis.

If you have any other fun/easy beta testing methods to share, please do so in the comments below!

Community Summit Topic Proposals

These are the topics proposed by the Support Team for this year’s community summit:

  • Continue 2015’s discussion about how to make/keep the support community welcoming and open, while at the same time encouraging quality replies.
  • Go through the remaining items on the lists of known issues and requested enhancements. – (MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. assistance needed)
  • Create a common style guide (best practices) that can be used across all forum language.
  • Improved management of contributors with time to spare.

We all agreed that we would be happy with these during the meeting today. We won’t be submitting them as our final proposals until after next week’s meeting, so if you have any feedback to share, please do so in the comments below!

No Replies View for Rosetta Forums

For the sake of organization, the No Replies view on the English forums (and non-English forums on the current bbPress) is limited to 3 weeks in age (we feel most have either moved on, solved it themselves, or re-posted by then).

This will be extended to all other forums as part of the fix for Meta ticket 1987.
