The Health Check plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. 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 (the tool used for providing support, both by our volunteers but also by theme and plugin authors) is preparing to release version 1.1.0, and as such the files are ready to be translated. If you are a polyglot we welcome you to help out with translations!
No new issues, that aren’t already known in some way, have been noticed.
We also see that with the exception of confusion about the comment checkbox not always being present, users aren’t having many issues with the new privacy tools.
Checking in with international liaisons
The Italian, Serbian, Swedish, Brazilian, Russian, German and Spanish representatives let us know that things are looking good in the wider world!
The next batch of volunteer badges will be assigned when the ones responsible for it return from their break, until then just make sure to keep the volunteer spreadsheet up to date. (Are you an international representative and don’t know about it, please send a Direct Message to @clorith and he will get you sorted).
Image embeds are still only restricted to embeds from the CloudUp service, we will likely re-introduce support for imgur at some point as well.

Providing support is a great entry to contributing, why not include your local meetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. and answer questions as a group, it’s also awesome to see the range of possible solutions that people have!
