Support Team Update for August 14th

Small agenda makes for a small meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on will help you find options in your area.. 🙂

Items discussed at this week’s #wordpress-sfd support:

WordPress 4.0 BetaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. ongoing

The beta appears to be coming along smoothly, and all hands are on deck for Beta 4 and RC 1.

There really haven’t been any earth-shattering threads in the Alpha/Beta section, and most reports have either been fixed, filed, or are obviously wontfix.

When you encounter a bug reported in the forums, test it against Trunk first. If it’s still there, look for it in TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub., and depending on what you find either direct the user to the ticket or instruct them in filing their own. If they file their own, ask for a link to the ticket when they’re done, and assist by improving the description and placement if necessary. The Trac Handbook is super-helpful.
