Lesson Plan Updates
None given.

Copyediting Updates
@mike_piercy is still working on grammar changes and the navigation order of links.

Testing Updates
melindahelt is still working on the full-day WCKent workshop.

Q&A and Announcements
@bethsoderberg took the temperature on a video chat for 6/27 and a larger virtual summit later in the summer.

melindahelt recommended having two video calls so that folks who are not as “Americas” based time zone might be able to have exposure to the team and then contribute async going forward. She will look into how Community has done it.

melindahelt also noted she is not pinged whenever P2 gets updated unless she’s mentioned in it. A settings change was made and this meeting recap will be a test by not using the @ with melindahelt’s name. Another test is a new email entered by @bethsoderberg.

@bethsoderberg will be looking into it, as well as the images lost from the LPs with the theme switchover.

@bethsoderberg may miss this meeting next week. @juliekuehl will lead it.

@mike_piercy asked about access to theme files, widget and Menu sections in the handbook. @bethsoderberg is bumping up his permissions.

Recap of June 6, 2017 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates
@jenwill has continued working on enqueuing scripts and styles. my rough draft is maybe halfway through and it’s already really long. Requests feedback. (https://make.wordpress.org/training/?post_type=handbook&p=8646&preview=true)

Suggestions were made regarding adding WP-CLI to lesson plan, probably as multiple plans. @pbarthmaier asked if it should be part of a previously-suggested developer track.

Copyediting Updates
@mike_piercy: I wasn’t here last week but have made it through roughly half of the grammar edits while checking the inconsistencies in the nav links.

Testing Updates
@melindahelt is planning to use training materials for a full-day workshop at WCKent.

Q&A and Announcements
@bethsoderberg
1. I have heard from a few folks who are interested in helping me lead meetings, take notes, keep everything organized and on track, etc. I want to leave the conversation about that open for another week or two to make sure folks have the ability to pipe up if they’d like to. Please DM me if you’d like.

2. Proposal a mini summit since none of us will be at WCEU Community Summit. We can talk about it again next week.

New member @myselfkhayer asked about how to contribute.

Slack Log (Requires Slack login to view. Set one up if you don’t have a Slack account)

Special Announcement

@chanthaboune will be stepping away from the team as she’s been asked to lead a second team at work. Very special thanks to @chanthaboune for the spirit, insights, support, and contributions to this team. We appreciate everything you’ve done and will miss you (but will see you soon!).

We will need a new backup for @bethsoderberg moving forward.

Lesson Plan Updates

  • @jenwill is working on Enqueuing Scripts and Styles after a productive conversation in the Slack channel over the last week or so where the team decided to keep this plan simple, with room to expand into other plans as necessary later.
  • @donkiely is working on an updated version of the Child Themes lesson plan and it needs one more round of feedback before it heads into copyediting. Everyone is encouraged to take a look and leave their feedback in Slack.
  • We are not able to audit the lesson plans for the 4.8 release until our issue with images not showing up in our lesson plans is fixed. We’ve submitted a ticket with systems and are waiting for a response.

Copyediting Updates

  • @mike_piercy is going through and making edits for grammar, punctuation, etc.
  • Some of the image issues were fixed last week, but not all.

Testing Updates

  • @chanthaboune tried to do a 101 workshop with the beginner lesson plans last weekend but it didn’t work out for totally unpredictable reasons.
  • @chanthaboune reports that Hack the Hood is going to use some of the theme lessons and will implement them in their summer boot camp.
  • @mikepiercy asked about database syncing in workshop settings. We had a productive conversation about how hard this is to do and outlined a few different options. You can read the whole thing at this time stamp.

Recap of May 16, 2017 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates
@jenwill working on Enqueuing Scripts and Styles with @parthmaier’s help. She has some questions but he’s been too busy to respond. She asked about a code snippet. @juliekuehl thought it might be overkill for a beginning how-to lesson and suggested different code including just the CSS, noting all comments where just her own opinion. @melindahelt reminded us we need to make sure the plugins called are free and in the repo. @bethsoderberg concurred. @Jenwill also thinks just enqueuing a simple .js file is better than adding jQuery. Consensus reached.

@donkiely just finished a draft of Child Themes lesson plan and submitted it for review. It’s is called “Child Themes (twentyseventeen).”

Copyediting Updates

@donkiely audit project on hold until images are again available to the LP pages.

@awakekat asked about the topic: `get_template_directory_uri()` and `get_stylesheet_directory_uri()`

@jenwill will touch on that in the enqueuing lesson. @juliekuehl thinks it should be a blog post but that the lesson plans are showing best practices. @melindahelt asked if it should be an LP side-bar. @jenwill suggested pointing out which to use in the parent theme and which in the child theme and link tumor info in a blog post or another LP (@juliekuehl added developer.wordpress.org also). @melindahelt suggested either developer or codex or another LP.

Testing Updates

@coachwp had planned to do some testing but it was postponed.

@melindahelt reminded us that anyone – not just team members – can use the planes and we should let anyone know if they are looking for material.

Q&A and Announcements

@donkiely updated the Style Guid to show the short codes for emphasized text inline. Asked how to get the editor to stop changing the escape character, which now reverts to tip. @mike_piercy recommends . Discussion going offline.

@mike_piercy discovered the Next and Previous buttons are going by post date and @juliekuehl thinks they will have to be manually changed and said we need to brainstorm a strategy for that.

@donkiely remembered someone dropping in with a suggestion, @coffee2code. Suggested putting in a ticket. Possibly @chanthaboune did, but not sure.

@mike_piercy asked what P2 is and discussion went on to explain the theme naming of the blog and posting system for the teams.

@melindahelt remembered that a person’s first post has to be approved.

@donkiely ended things by noting he’s using [ tip ]Use the [/ tip ] short code to highlight tips but with a warning not to include spaces.
