Looking For Feedback

Course Creation Proposal: Developing with WordPress #1487

@caraya is working on an idea and is looking for feedback on whether this is something that would work as a course or would work better as a learning path. Please leave any comments on the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. issue.

Repurposing to house all educational code examples for the WordPress community.

Context: Recently the WordPress Developer Blog was officially launched. Many of those articles contain links to code example repositories, usually in the author’s GitHub account. @psykro, and other developer educators in the team, also create code example repositories for our workshops, tutorials, and courses for Learn WordPress, also hosted on our own accounts.

Josepha suggested it might be useful to repurpose the wptrainingteam organization, renaming it to something like learn-wordpress. So we’d like to find out what the training team thinks of this idea.

So far, people who have commented have said they think this is a good idea. But if you have any thoughts, we’d like to hear from you on this Slack thread.

Need to add Meta box for on-page SEO for every post and post types #830

Many comments have been added so far. For the moment, we’re looking for thoughts on the two questions written out in this comment.


  • What problem is this issue trying to solve?
  • Without adding any code/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, what can the team do right now with the site features we already have to solve this problem?

Discussion – adding publication date to content #1532

We received feedback this week from one of Learn’s learners asking why we don’t show a publication date on individual Tutorials.

Was this an intentional decision? What pros/cons can you think about showing a publication date on content on Learn? Please leave your thoughts on the GitHub issue.

Looking for volunteers

WordPress Community Summit 2023 – Leadership is looking especially for newer contributors to join, who can bring a fresh perspective to the WordPress project. If you are even a little interested in joining, please apply to attend.

A new handbook page

We’ve published a new handbook page that details each of the Faculty roles: Faculty Role Guides

We ask that each Faculty member take a look at the description of their role. But we encourage everyone to take a read too, to better understand how Faculty members can help the team move towards our goals.

Reminder to speak slowly in video content

In consideration of Learn’s global community, let’s remember to speak slowly and insert pauses when publishing video content. Thank you to @weblink for reminding the team about this
