July 18th Support Team Meeting Summary

Due to unexpected complications elsewhere, this wound up being more of an informal office hours session than a strict meeting, but we still discussed a few things.

Helper Scripts

The Topic Original Poster and Also Viewing scripts have been moved to the official WordPress.org Support Team repo, which means that all of our helper scripts are now hosted there. The relevant Handbook page has now been updated accordingly.

Breakfix Lessons

We are aware that the Breakfix Lessons are broken, and that folks have found them helpful in the past. The plan is to reach out to their original developer next week, or see if we can get another 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party developer to donate their time.

Please keep in mind that this is all done on a volunteer basis, so while we intend to restore the lessons, we can’t promise that it will be done quickly.
