Docs Team Update 8th March

This week:

  • held the first Theme and 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 Developers handbook office hours. Used these as an opportunity to discuss moving things along more quickly. We’ve made major changes to the workflow and now require authors to report weekly on their progress.
  • discussions about the improved code reference. @djpaul and @melchoyce are now on board with the project, and we’ve had a useful discussion about wireframes on the docs P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at
  • discussed a Codex Sprint for WordPress 3.6. This will be run by @DrewAPicture
  • we discussed the lack of backbone.js documentation specifically for WordPress developers. This is a problem if we want developers to make use of it. I’m going to do some investigation into it.

Next week:

  • I’ll be in Munich so will miss Docs chat – docs chat and update will be taken care of by @DrewAPicture
  • Beginning of regular reporting for Theme & Plugin dev handbooks
  • work with @melchoyce on design for better code reference
