Docs Team Update for Sept 6, 2013

This Week

  • @DrewAPicture created a draft of the Codex article we discussed last week for Inserting Media into Posts and Pages. He said he’s still got a bit to do, but it’s looking terrific.  Thanks Drew!
  • @DrewAPicture and @kimparsell also “finalized(ish)” the PHP inline documentation standards.
  • Inline Docs has focused on documenting hooksHooks In WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same.. @kimparsell and @DrewAPicture are leading the charge on improving/adding missing functional docs.  Also, they’re on fire!
  • @jazzs3quence and @siobhan need feedback on the Admin Help videos. Join them on IRC in #wordpress-sfd on Mondays at 16:30 UTC.
  • Handbooks: despite last week’s report, we’ve got nothing.  @sewmyheadon will inventory both Handbooks and accompanying spreadsheets and provide updates ASAP.
  • Plugin Developer Handbook needs volunteers.  Contact @hanni, @siobhan or me if you can help.
  • Working on organizing monthly Docs Improvement Meetups in Seattle, on IRC, and hopefully, in your town too.  More to come . . .
