Meeting Recap – September 9 2014

This week @courtneydawn had to leave at the last minute and foolishly wisely left me in charge of the meeting. Henceforth I shall refer to myself in the 3rd person, just to make writing this post extra awkward. 🙂

  • Template Hierarchy: @coachbirgit has had trouble getting to this, but will be able to devote some time to it next week
  • Intro to CSSCSS CSS is an acronym for cascading style sheets. This is what controls the design or look and feel of a site.: @jerrysarcastic has added the quiz, sample XML import file, and made a few edits, and @meaganhanes has also edited the module. This is now READY TO TEST but @jerrysarcastic will not be able to pick it up until October. To keep things moving along, anyone is welcome to do a test run at their local meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through 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 will help you find options in your area. and offer feedback on how things went.
  • Widgeted Spaces @bethsoderberg created a stub for this new module in progress, yay! \o/
  • Post Formats: @courane01 reports that she is close to done with this module, but has run into a small issue where “post format video code interferes with the post format chat code, resulting in [the] sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. on the chat layout not being where they should.” and is working to resolve this issue before finalizing.

Opening up Testing to Meetups

Some time was spent talking about ways of letting local WordPress Meetups know that there are modules available for testing as a way to jump start this part of finalizing our curricula for these workshops. One thought that needs to be followed up on is possible connecting with Meetups that are on the Foundation Meetup account.
