This post summarizes the 30-minute Tide status update and open floor discussion from April 28th in the #tide SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel (agenda, Slack archive).

Reminder that the current Tide focus is integrating PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. Compatibility data from Tide into WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/.  Once PHP Compatibility is integrated into WordPress.org, we’ll assess the next focus to provide the biggest impact to the community.


  • We need help with testing, specifically why the services are not connecting to the APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. after the latest merges to upgrade WordPress
  • When starting the services locally they appear to authenticate with the API but when something is added to the queue it never is picked up for the audit by the service
  • Everything worked prior to upgrading WordPress
  • Alternatively it could be something is wrong with the connection to the local MonogDB instance that the queue is polling from, but this seems less likely
  • So if you’re able to pull down the lastest master branches and test locally to help triage that would be AMAZING. Help, please.
