Docs Team Update for 15th January

This week the following work has been continuing:


We’ve started work on the handbooks. A review has been carried out of the current CCH handbook and we’ve started to identify things that we need to add to it. I’m also really pleased that Rachel Baker has agreed to be the editor for the Theme Developer Handbook, and Tom McFarlin for the 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 Developer Handbook. They both have a lot of great expertise to bring to the project and I’m excited to be working with them.

Help Text

@DrewAPicture has started a review of the Network Admin help text and has submitted #23163.

The following item will also be discussed at the Support/Docs chat this week:

Docs on Communication

Concerns were raised on Twitter about there not being a clear way to communicate with the different areas of WordPress, be they coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress., or other team reps. Discussion was moved to the Docs blog and we’ll discuss in chat this week how we can come up with a solution.

@jane Would it be possible to do these reports on either Thursday or Friday? Soon after our chat would make sense.
