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.

  • @derekherman working to resolve two outstanding issues: finishing the status UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. and updating the documentation
  • Status UI is connected to Firestore and provides real-time updates, but provides no pagination, sorting, or search
  • Documentation of installation should be good for others to try out / test, but after that there’s likely more that needs more/better info in the docs
