August 2nd Support Team Meeting Summary

WordPress 4.9.8 preparations

We’ve prepared the new master topic for the pluginPlugin 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party’s support forums.

It sets expectations, provides quick insights and links to the official FAQ page in the GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. handbook. We’ll add a FAQ section if we see a need, in the topic it self, as the official one is more developer oriented.

If/when we receive reports of theme and plugin conflicts we’ll be adding them there to the list of known conflicts. This will let us know what we should test against, and also give users an indication of if their issue is already covered by us.

Checking in with international liaisons

We had representatives from the Russian, Greek, Spanish, Dutch, Brazilian and German communities take part during this weeks meeting.

If you’re attending out meetings but are from a non-mentioned community, feel free to say hi on their behalf and let us know how things are!

Open floor

A reminder that the Forums channel will be in “release mode”, this means we will avoid general chatter/emoji streams to avoid missing important shared information.
