Intentions

Thank you for all the thank yous. We all appreciate it, but do be careful as there are many working on the Codex that tend to not get recognized, and we hate the hurt feelings, so one big group hug is more than plenty.

So what are your "intensions"? I've always wanted to say that. Anyway, how can we help you help us? And thanks for everything, yourself. Lorelle 02:47, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

Using Stylized Correctly

So yeah, "stylized" is one of my pet peeves. Things that are "stylized" use artistic (or literary, or etc.) conventions for a non-natural or nonspontaneous effect - big eyes on cartoon characters, or kabuki theater, that sort of thing. "Styled" things have merely been made consistent with a look or fashion or set of rules. So it might be appropriate to use "stylize" when the CSS specifically invokes the conventions of web design (e.g. making visited links "dim") or achieves an overall abstract look. For generic cases, though, "style" is the better choice.

Thanks for all your work, hooray for editing! :)

Cleanup

Okay, I know it's not fun, but since you didn't jump in with any specifics (see, that's what you get for not being specific ;-) ) one thing that is desperately needed is to go through the Special:Wantedpages Wanted Pages section. Miss-explained, this page is NOT for articles that are currently "wanted" to be written, but links from within articles to pages that don't exist. These need to be corrected.

How this needs to work takes some serious concentration. It ain't fun, but it requires a keen eye for detail, which you've already proven. When someone writes an article or edits it, and they put in a link to another article, it doesn't take much to screw up the link. We continue to have problems between the_loop and The_Loop as links within the Codex. They both are working...now, but not always. A missed cap, or Localization being spelled Localisation kinda thing can make a link to a working page - miss.

I keep two to three windows or tabs in my browser open in order to do this. From the Special:Wantedpages page, click on the "red" link to the article. You will come to an edit page. DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING IN THERE. On the sidebar to the right, in the third box down just below the search, you will see a link to what links here. Click on that for a list of articles that link to this article that doesn't exist. Either click on one of these or Right Click and Open a new tab or window with the article (especially if there are more than two or three links to this article). Search within the article for the link to that wrongly named page. They are usually red. From another window or tab viewing the Codex, do a search and find the correct article. COPY THE LINK from the browser (skip the codex.wordpress part) and then return to the previous article and click EDIT and search for the link and paste in the correct link. When you preview, the red should be gone and the link should look blue again. Then on to the next.

The Codex will automatically change the count of how many "wanted pages" are wrongly linked, or take the page off the list when fixed, either way, there are now a ton of these and we need to clean them up and make this list something really important, like a list of articles that are really wanted and not screwups in the links. I've poked at these a lot, which makes my name show up a lot on the Recent Changes pages - like this is hard work...hee hee...and the list is more manageable now, but as more articles come in, more bad links pop up.

I'll be posting a note about this on the WP-docs mailing list soon, so any help would be seriously appreciated. There is nothing more frustrating for the user than clicking a link to an article that they think will help them and ending up on a blank screen that invites them to type something in. Bad stuff and not good for the Codex reputation.

And keep punching, slicing, and dicing the articles as you see fit and post a note in the article's discussion area if you have a question about wording or concept. The writers and section overseers check in from time to time to monitor their pages, so they'll fix it or answer your question. Keep up the great work! Lorelle 18:43, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

Me no boss lady. Me just busy bee worker.  ;-) The "proper" usage is kinda a strange bug. When referring to the WordPress Loop, it is called The Loop or the Loop. But the link is its own thing. In order for the link to work, it needs to be The Loop or The_Loop, though now the_loop will also work because it was "fixed" to work. Mixed caps can be the end of a page link. I'm sure you figured this out, but there are different ways to "link" to a page. Underlines are the standard for linking to an article on the Codex from outside of the Codex. It also works internally, but the underlines show up in the link, which is already underlined so it's considered ugly. So when using the exact link title to link to, use spaces between the words and not underlines. But when hidden inside of an internal link with the title showing, you can use spaces or underlines. I probably shouldn't have used The Loop link as an example, but you get the mixed caps metaphor, I'm sure.
Thanks again and if you find a "specific" thing you want to work on, let us know!  ;-) Lorelle 19:42, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
See, I knew your eye for detail would be perfect for this!!! Good catches. Change them ALL. User pages' articles may become articles so fix it. As for user pages, if they screwed up their links, fix it and make a note in the summary that you fixed the dead link. They might be thrilled. Don't expect thanks, just know that it's a great thing you are doing! Change them ALLLLL. and thanks from the quiet hoards. Lorelle 02:51, 4 May 2005 (UTC)
You are a star! Wow. Can you post the message you left me, with the links, on the wp-docs mailing list so that everyone can figure out what might need doing, and I'll see if we can contact these users. Sometimes people leave contact info, and sometimes they don't, but most check the docs list. Well, I certainly know a can-do dude when I finds one! You are wonderful.
Now, if your trigger finger is still itching for more heavy labor, check out Category:Maintenance from within the Special Pages section (or click the link). These are all the pages which need some kind of maintenance. Some of this you might not be able to do, but some of it might be similar to what you've just done. The little list at the top of the page still has some ickies that I haven't gotten around to fixing. I'm slowly tearing apart the merge section, so leave that one alone so we don't write over each other. When those are merged, I'll post a note on the Special:Recentchanges page (which I think you've figured out how to check) saying these have been merged and need editing.
We're going to make this Codex top shape! Wow. Thanks again. Now, I'll stop thanking you before the slobbering gratitude shorts out my keyboard. Lorelle 15:39, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

See, you never know what you get when you ask. Carthik, supreme commander, went in and did short work of those links you asked about. That was FAST! Thanks! Lorelle 18:20, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

You mean you want MORE WORK? And they say I have too much energy. Check in with the other Documentation_team members to see if they need anything specific, and post a note on the docs mailing list. I'll talk to Carthik. You've done most of the grunge work, so going through and editing the rest is what is mostly due.
I will soon have a list of articles that need to be written for the Codex and that will need some sorting and cleaning up I'm sure.
Also, now that you "know" where some of the information is, can you hang out in the forum and post links to some of the answers to the questions in the Codex? I've been the main poster of Codex links for the past few months, trying to get people to take advantage of the great documentation, but I need a helper. Read the question carefully and then post links to the areas that are most likely to help. Even if you don't know the answer, pointing people in the right direction helps tremendously, especially if their question has gone unanswered for hours or days. Once a week I go back a few days in the different categories to see if there are any unanswered or not well answered questions. I post a couple links so even if the asker has found the answer, a future inquiry will bring up a link to a more information if they don't want to post a question. There are a lot of lurkers on the forum and we have to help them, too.
You've done great, now take a break and relax, too! Lorelle 15:03, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

More cleanup and deletions

Hi Michael,

If you find pages that deserve to be deleted, like the Talk page for the 5minuteInstallation page, then please add {rfd} to that page at the top. I, and other maintainers will know that it has been marked for deletion and will delete it in due course. Talk pages without the corresponding pages are candidates for such deletion, since, in all probability, those talk pages were not deleted when the corresponding page was, due to oversight.

thanks,

Carthik ‹ ℂ › Talk 19:26, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

More on Deletion

Micheal, you said: >Regarding marking pages for deletion, I will be glad to add the {rfd}.

>I've encountered some pages in DoubleRedirects that are NOT linked to by any other page. Should I mark these for deletion also?

Which DoubleRedirect pages are we talking about? I checked the list of double redirects a moment ago. Let me know if there are pages I should know of.


>I ask because I thought a #REDIRECT was the only thing allowed on a 'redirected' page--examples are Make a Directory Writable, Permalink Structure, and Upgrading. Thanks and let me know. MichaelH 19:46, 4 May 2005 (UTC)

I can see only a #Redirect on those pages, so what is the issue? Some redirect pages are preserved since they are extensive linked-to from pages outside of the Codex, like random blogs, and other webpages on the Internet which we have no control over, and can't edit. So the redirects are preserved to ensure that visitors who come here following those links dont face a 404, and instead are directed to a useful page. The pages you mention are examples of those, and we might have these redirect pages around for a while.

If in doubt, mark it as an RFD, and I or someone else might just remove the RFD later :)

Semantic WordPress

I got another project for you. Matt has given out a list of articles/documentation from other similar program sites, and I'm going through that list to see what is missing that we need. One of them is an article that offers the "semantics" of WordPress. Like a glossary, it names the jargon and parts and pieces of WordPress that people need to know when talking about it. Words like Pages, Posts, Loop, Categories, User Levels, Templates, Template Tags, and...well, the words that are "unique" or have a special "use" within WordPress. A page is a page is a page, but in WordPress, there are pages as in web pages and pages as in posts and Pages as in individual Pages...get where I'm going.

We need to create an article/list of the various semantic expressions used to describe the parts, functions, and bits of WordPress. Up to it? Lorelle 15:09, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

I later realized that I started such an article at http://www.cameraontheroad.com/index.php?p=592 that might help you get started. Lorelle 16:45, 5 May 2005 (UTC)
Sorry about forcing you to use a dictionary - especially giving you a dictionary kinda assignment....sigh, what's this world coming to?  ;-) Remember how to start a new article in your User Page? It should be listed above in the greeting. Can't wait! Lorelle 19:47, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

I see you adding terms to the glossary. Thank you. That has been past due and needing fixing. How's the article on semantics coming? Just checking in. Lorelle 22:11, 10 May 2005 (UTC)

Fifteen days ago...kidding. No, just feeling the pressure of the new version release and getting anxious. And also, I'm going to be less avaiable for the next week because my mother is coming to visit......eeeeeeek. I'll be "around" but not working on the Codex much. So email me directly or comment on my site if there is a problem. And check out what other groups are doing to set up their semantic examples. I'd really like it to be simple for the newbie (this is an apple. An apple is red, except when it is green or yellow or brown....but clearer than that :-) ) while answering strong questions for the intermediate user. Tough task, but you are up to it. And you can email me the first drafts at any time to help guide you through it. Once you get a couple of these under your belt, no hand holding will be permitted ;-). Have fun with it! Lorelle 03:47, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
Good catch on the accessibility issue on the forum. It helps if you bury the link in words using <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Title_With_Underlines">Tile Without Underlines</a> to make the link look better when posted, as the long links tend to run off the post. Keep pounding in the Codex on the forum so people get the message that it is here! Wonderful! Lorelle 17:12, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
Michael, I was a total newbie to all of this about...gee, has it been six months....eight...something like that. Master web page designer, knew HTML and CSS up and down and sideways, won awards for web page design and so on. WordPress was like going back to kindergarten for me. But wow, what a great learning lesson. I'm having more fun with my site than I have in AGES! Enjoy the process. Lorelle 19:10, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
Michael, the Semantics article is wonderful. Leads the user right through the entire process like poetry. I left a note saying basically the same thing on the discussion page of the article. Wonderful edits and changes. Thank you so much for such outstanding work! Lorelle 03:40, 21 May 2005 (UTC)


Greetings

Thanks for the welcome ... I'm working my way through your task list :)

At the mo, I have a couple of questions:

During registration and in the preferences, it says that my email can be used for people to send me mail through the system. I can't find any way to do that. Is the user talk page the only way to message someone? On yours and others that I've inspected it seems to intrude on the discussion of your work.

If I edited a page (perhaps tagged for edit) correcting a lot of spelling and grammar, but without altering the information content, should I tag the edit minor, to save people looking for new info, or not, so that someone can note that it's been fixed?--Al-khowarizmi 16:38, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Welcoming

Michael, I generally don't post the welcome message on old users' pages, unless they did a recent edit. My guess is that a new user is more likely to return, and be encouraged to contribute more. The old users might have registered only to make one, or two changes :)

Carthik ‹ ℂ › Talk 18:18, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
I am also seeing a lot of welcomes on sites where the user doesn't have a page, but you've "created" one for them by creating a discussion page without a user page. Be careful on that. I think it's brilliant, and if Carthik and the others say it's okay, fine. I just don't want a bunch of discussion pages hanging around when the user won't take the time to make a user page and floats in and out of the Codex. Just another page to maintain.
You are doing brilliant work on these welcomes. Thanks so much. It really takes the pressure off of the rest of us. And you are doing great at referring people to the task list and the right areas when they come to you as the "expert" for welcoming them. Great! Lorelle 03:08, 21 May 2005 (UTC)

Michael, Lorelle That's only a welcome message on those pages. If that provides them with the thrust to create a user page, and generally get involved, so be it. The number of non Main: namespace pages is not a concern. The real documentation pages should be trim and tight, always. The talk pages are meant for being used liberally :)

Carthik ‹ ℂ › Talk 17:25, 22 May 2005 (UTC)

New FAQ Discussion

Sorry, Michael. I might have saved over some of your things on the FAQ Installation example. Check the History to grab any difference. That's the problem with two people working on things at the same time. I was hoping to seek in before you got up. Lorelle 16:13, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Don't think that happened. I think MediaWiki does warn you on a save if someone has 'snuck in' and saved before you then you have to decide what to do from there.MichaelH (talk) 16:16, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

I was just online at IRC #mediawiki asking when your note popped up on the Codex. $#%*(@#$ - Don't ask. All I know is that we have to get Carthik or Matt to get into the source and "Check out the toc* functions in Skin.php" to style us a FAQ TOC that will force it to the left. I almost asked Matt but I got a phone call and he left the #wordpress chat, so I'll have to hit him later for an answer. Carthik has finals. We'll get to it.

Without templates, though, we still have to do double the work to make a master FAQ page, if we decide to go with that. Choices. Desicions.

In the meantime, I blew out the template example in the sample page and put in the clear:both, which we will need to drop it below the TOC anyway, and we can go from there until we get it to pop over to the left. I also did a quickie clean up of the example FAQ.

Using PRE layout, we REALLY have to watch the long lines as they ARE the length they are. Makes for ugly stuff, so when I can, I force a line break in them. Buggers. When I can't, I either fake a DIV that emulates the PRE look so it will naturally wrap or leave them alone. I also added <br /> to a couple of the blockquotes as the line breaks weren't working. Minor stuff.

Looking great! We'll have something wonderful to show for the meeting tomorrow. Lorelle 22:28, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for emailing them. Basically, my chat with the Mediawiki experts was that this is a sysop thing and only Carthik and Matt can fix it by hard coding in the function for the FAQ "class" into the php file I mentioned. C and M will probably have the answer for us in a matter of seconds, so don't strain too hard on this now. I want it perfect, too, but we're not in charge of the world...right now ;-) Lorelle 22:42, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

TOC

Just found out that only Matt can change the Codex format. Talking to him today about it. Lorelle 14:36, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Welcome Task

Quick Note: Check the Codex:Tasks as someone else has signed up to help "welcome" and see if you two can coordinate, take turns, have that person do it while you are unavailable, whatever. Thanks. Lorelle 02:06, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Coordinated MichaelH (talk) 14:03, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

FAQs

Michael: We've had someone working on the FAQs (old ones) because they had copyedits on them. Nothing has to happen now, but this is a reminder to both of us that we need to intergrate those "fixes" and additions into the new FAQ. Thanks. Lorelle 13:45, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Just a reminder: We need to go through the FAQs and EVERYWHERE there is a reference to the Admin Panel stuff, we need to link to the Administration Panels page such as Administration > Manage > Posts

I usually grab the link from the pink boxes that list all the different areas. Thanks. Lorelle 19:24, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Hi Michael. I have talked to Lorelle and I would really enjoying working on the FAQs. She said they are "your baby", so I wanted to ask your permission before I signed up and pitched in under that category. Thanks so much and I look forward to helping. Spirit892

Cleanup

I've asked for permission from Carthik to post a note on every user's user page about the Codex Cleanup. If he doesn't have an easy way of doing this automatically, we're going to have to do this manually. I'd like to ask you and Boneill to help me do this by dividing things up alphabetically. I'll come up with the template or text for us to paste. Whatcha think? Lorelle 15:13, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Cleanup Notes

I left you some notes with error_bot, but here are more. And I hope you are having a great time. Can't wait for details.

Okay.

1. Can you look at these? See if we can find a place to move it to in the Codex. Podz has given permission for his stuff but it may need reviewing.

2. Can you please clean up the links to this: Import Links SubPanel and make sure that all the references in Administration Panels that need to go to this page are set. Thanks!

Lorelle 21:13, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
1. User:ringmaster/FileMap Yes it's http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Files so delete this http://codex.wordpress.org/Core_File_Map and http://codex.wordpress.org/User:ringmaster/FileMap User:ringmaster/FileMap MichaelH (talk) 13:04, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)
2. Done: MichaelH (talk) 12:50, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Spirit892 Hi Michael. For the past few days, I have been going through the FAQS and checking links, spelling, and grammar. I've done a lot of the pages. Just to give you a heads up.

Regarding File Listing and Permissions

Consider merging these two (User:Podz/Filelisting and User:Podz/Permissions) into one article Standard Files and Permissions Version 1.5.1.2. Use the structure from Filelisting and put the suggested Permission by each Directory and File. Alternative consider subpage for each WordPress version???

Link to the new article from FAQ Developer Documentation, Changing_File_Permissions, FAQ Installation, FAQ Troubleshooting

Fixing Michael

The DNS is the Domain Network Server and it is the "database" of domain names. It is the "inter" in internet. To add more DNS:

  1. Open Network Connections
  2. Right click on Internet Connections
  3. Go down the list to Internet Protocol TCP/IP
  4. Click Properties
  5. At the bottom where it says "Set DNS Automatically" click "Use the following"
  6. In the first box type in 4.2.2.1
  7. Apply.

This adds alternative DNS to your list as a backup for when things go bork. Lorelle 15:03, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Fixing Michael 2

Back in 2000/2001 when I was using dialup, I would do this. It used to work, at times.

  1. Open up an MS-DOS window
  2. Type ping <Your Host IP> -t
  3. Hit return

That makes your PC keep pinging your host, and sometimes this helps keep the connection alive, and stops your host dropping it. Sometimes webhosts drop connections that seem dead. Especially if you aren't doing much but being on IRC, the data transfer is so little that your host may assume that you are inactive. Hope this helps. Lastnode 15:08, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Database Resources


We Thank You

The Codex Documenation Team and all of WordPress thank you for your time, effort, and contributions during this past Codex Cleanup Week. It has been amazing. Over twenty new documents were added, and more are still in the works that will be released over the next couple of weeks. The entire Codex is now categorized, improving the ability of users to find the related information they are looking for.

The next big Codex-related event is WordPress Backup Week July 23-30. The project will promote backing up your WordPress database and site for the user's protection and further develop the relationship between the Codex and the WordPress Support Forum. Documentation volunteers will be cleaning up and expanding the backup and restore information on the site and Forum volunteers will be readied to help users in the Forum walk through their site backups. We need your help.

We are also starting a page for information and sign up for a variety of Fundraising and Promotions Events for WordPress and your help is needed there, too.

Thanks again for helping.

Lorelle and the whole Cleanup Codex volunteer team


And from me....  :P ........♥♥♥♥♥

July

Consider micro Categories

MichaelH--think about adding a micro category for Templates which would include everything in "Templates" and start designating articles related to template files like Designing Headers, Customizing Your Sidebar, etc. Left by User:Lorelle on IRC

I jumped the gun today and started adding the Templates category. Starting to get a little panicked about the hurricane and wanted to get things off my list. Sorry if I treaded on toes. Also, westi asked me to "soften" the tone on your comment to Illywhatever. I thought it was fine but he didn't want to come off as a Nazi. Don't ask me, I just did. Told him to do it himself in the future.
Cleaning up a lot of panic work and then packing up to head out. DAMN! HURRICANES! Lorelle 15:52, 7 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Cool LV and thanks for clearing that up. MichaelH (talk) 15:58, 7 Jul 2005 (UTC)

August

Old FAQ

Lorelle wanted to know what the status of the old FAQ. Are they all moved over? If so, rfd them and Lorelle will take care of them when she is able. --Schulte 15:46, 30 Aug 2005 (GMT)

That page is now in rfd. Thanks. MichaelH (talk) 16:12, 30 Aug 2005 (GMT)

Thoughts on New User Permissions

Great. What are your thoughts on New User permissions? I assume that page is kinda talking about the 1.6 structure (nothing links to it at the moment -- should it be alive at exist at all?)...should it be integrated with User Levels (when the time is right, of course)? --Schulte 16:26, 30 Aug 2005 (GMT)

Probably belongs in Version 1.6 page--I think original author created a separate page so those items wouldn't be lost in the Version 1.6 page. I almost did an rfd on that earlier today! MichaelH (talk) 16:30, 30 Aug 2005 (GMT)
That 1.6 page is more like a wish list...I say ditch New User permissions and let it rear its ugly head again when 1.6 makes its debut. It would probably end up on the User Levels page anyway under a 1.6 heading... --Schulte 16:37, 30 Aug 2005 (GMT)

Page Moves

I've move the corrupted spanish pages to Problemas al iniciar sesión and Localización de WordPress and added them both to the copyedits list as the content of them both looks very corrupted. Good Catch! --Westi 14:06, 31 Aug 2005 (GMT)

Thanks Westi for the quick response on those page renames. MichaelH (talk) 14:10, 31 Aug 2005 (GMT)
Thats ok. Looks like a quick round trip of the text through notepad has fixed all the dodgy characters too. Turns out that they were all UTF8 encoded character sequences and i've sucessfull reconstructed the unicode for those two pages. --Westi 14:19, 31 Aug 2005 (GMT)

September

Thanks, MH, for all that you are doing to keep an eye on things and clean things up. I was hoping to be fully back online but Rita took out power and caused more damage around us, so the work continues. Ugh. It "should" slow down by the end of the week. Unless more comes our way. You know, it's your fault - all those hurricane jokes. YOU YOU YOU YOU. I blame you. Cuz I know you can take it. :D Lorelle 14:16, 28 Sep 2005 (GMT)

Sysop help requested for WordPress Bug Hunt

Could someone take the WordPress Backup Button from this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/index.php?title=Main_Page&oldid=21488 and put it on the current version of Main Page. Then change the description and date to "WordPress Bug Hunt - November 5". Thanks for the help on this! Guess you have to unProtect Main Page first...
