Requesting to add all available list of metabox id's

Please, let me know or add all other available metabox ids for the function. User:Amuralikumar Jan 12

User:Amuralikumar - thanks for doing that. If you are asking a question, you may want to address that to the Support Forums. --MichaelH (talk) 15:01, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Protect pages

Where can I ask for a higher acess in Codex, only for portuguese Brazil? I´m managing portuguese-brazil codex right now and need to protect some page or batch replace strings also. Since is messed up, people aren't supporting me in brazilian comunity at all, it seems the fact Codex is hosted in WordPress.org (belong to someone else) just don't appeal any help on.

I don't mind if hosted somwhere else, if don't belongs me or local owners, I want to help the portuguese-spearkers comunity, if theres a place, why not?!

Might be quickest just to say which pages you are interested in protecting? 19:29, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

How can you help me help you

Hello I've been using wordpress for quite some time, and got a bit tired of writing tests on every project I start just to check some function's return format. Right now I don't have the availability to write complete articles, but started to fix typos and add examples to existing ones, this way we all can rely on the Codex instead of harvesting through blogs and source code for proper documentation.

Cheers

Import Categories

Hey Michael,

after doing some research and hair ripping a user pointed me towards your little piece of code that is supposed to import categories and child categories.

I am pretty new to php and coding in general. So what I did was creating a plugin that executes your code upon activation. The cats are not imported, though.

The code and more info you find here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/bulk-category-upload?replies=3#post-1895721

Your old post you find here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/multiple-batch-category-creation?replies=5#post-1110996

Can you help? I would appreciate it

Thanks

Hendrik

Documentation Practices - What are we documenting?

Hey,

I noticed you reverted my revert (under the name mwsource) back to a previous version of this page I understand that the page was edited to reflect an upcoming change in 3.1, but its importance as part of the current documentation for 3.0.5 still applies, especially when it's introducing a completely new function with no documentation as the alternative.

Documentation normally focuses on a function or method's role relative to the current production version. Version support for documentation is understandably difficult as the WP engine releases new versions often, but I would like to contribute to make the documentation as accurate to the current production release as possible.

What are your thoughts?

Workman 19:33, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Reverted because 3.1 will be out in the next day or so. --MichaelH (talk) 20:34, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Query & Suggestions

Hi, I was invited by User:Jiehanzheng (who is the current maintainer of http://cn.wordpress.org) to help translate Codex documentation into zh-cn since I'm more familiar with MediaWiki functions than him.

I was shocked after I have read several existing pages.

  • Some users have added advertisement in the documentation. None of the sysops have noticed that and remove that.[1]Or is this kind of advertisement acceptable?
  • When Jiehan asked me what to do, I told him "Remove the ad and give that user a warning." He told me there're no user warning templates.
  • It seems that wp-docs mail-list is not monitored by any sysop here.

As a patroller and rollbacker in zh Wikipedia, I'd like to offer some suggestions:

  1. Add a central page for all contributors to report vandalism and abuse since sysops may not understand languages other than English.
  2. Add a Village Pump page for every locale to help contributors cooperate more smoothly.
  3. Improve policies, guidelines and templates. Some basic policies, guidelines and templates are still missing. Such as the signature policy, Template:inuse template, user warning templates and welcome templates in different locales. Many policies, guidelines and templates can be imported and altered from Wikipedia.
  4. Consider using the http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FlaggedRevs extension and allow *trusted* editors to review pages.

--Tommyang 14:57, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Tommyang - your ideas and suggestions are certainly welcomed. You should be able to create the Templates you need, as well as improve any guidelines. I will email Barry about the FlaggedRevs extension to see if he can get that installed. --MichaelH (talk) 15:23, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. BTW I want to make sure that is this kind of self-promotion acceptable? [2] Since the guideline didn't mention about promotion and there's no community consensus and we are having a little argument here [3], I'd like to ask a sysop for the final decision.

--Tommyang 15:56, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Of course it is not acceptable and was probably missed. --MichaelH (talk) 16:52, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Is there any guideline for it? In fact, I don't mind remove it but how we can do it perfectly for all translated documents on codex? --Themedaily 17:30, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
There may be no official policy but we don't really allow self promotion links in Codex. If you are worried about attribution then you can look at the History of each article to see what you have contributed. To that end I have removed any signature type sections of articles. --MichaelH (talk) 18:59, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
The question is, it seems only the articles translated by me removed. but all others remain such as:
  1. http://codex.wordpress.org/zh-cn:%E5%AE%89%E8%A3%85%E4%B9%8B%E5%89%8D%E8%A6%81%E4%BA%86%E8%A7%A3%E7%9A%84
  2. http://codex.wordpress.org/zh-tw:%E5%AE%89%E8%A3%9D%E4%B9%8B%E5%89%8D%E8%A6%81%E7%9E%AD%E8%A7%A3%E7%9A%84
  3. ... and more,
that's why?
--Themedaily 22:51, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
In addition, if you have confirmed it's not acceptable, I think add it into somewhere as one of official policy will be better. ::::::--Themedaily 23:22, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Those signatures you noted are now removed, please feel free to delete them if you see them in other articles. Thanks. --MichaelH (talk) 23:56, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Styles - Image align

Hey Michael,

Thanks for the heads up on my talk page. Just have a question about how I find out who manages css/codex styling. I was browsing the Codex:Styles page, and noticed that none of the image align functions work.

codex-logo-2.pngSo, for example: [[Image:codex-logo-2.png]] displays as above, inline, within the text.

codex-logo-2.png
But [[Image:codex-logo-2.png|right|thumbnail]] displays the image like so, ignoring the right align float, disturbing the first two lines of following text.

Who do I talk to to fix this? I know its pretty minor, but from having a look at the css, it appears that all it needs is .tright {float:right;} added to the stylesheet.

Regards, Bigonroad 14:48, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Bigonroad - join the wp-docs mailing list and post your question there and someone from Automattic should see it. Thanks for contributing to Codex. --MichaelH (talk) 01:06, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks man, have done that. Pretty exciting to be involved with WP... Bigonroad 08:28, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice!

Hi Michael. Thanks for the advice about change Wordpress in WordPress and especially thanks for the welcome. This has improved me. I hope you will continue to do so :) and i too with others, because as Zig Ziglar says: "You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want".

Hi MichaelH. Could you spare some time to take a look at the Requests for deletion category? Thanks! --Jiehanzheng 16:09, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Jiehanzheng -- have rfd'd those articles. --MichaelH (talk) 17:25, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Screenshots

Hope the new screenshots are helpful and will try to update them for you on each version. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help the codex. Hyper123 23:56, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks so much Hyper123 for those screenshots. Great Job!. --MichaelH (talk) 00:01, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Twenty Ten dark child theme

Hi Michael, Thanks for the comment on the link I added to the Child Themes discussion.

With twenty eleven the child theme will not work with the dark theme selected,if the user wanted to edit the colors in the dark theme, this is due to the dark stylesheet being loaded last, this will mean that users will start hacking the twenty eleven parent.

I added the link as it is my first contribution, if I edit the codex page to refect the changes, I am not sure to edit or add, would it be better as a trac ticket where the devs could look at changing the priority.

EDIT: I think I understand the concept better now, I was worried about editing the Child Theme page main content, I have added a Note section to the page with comments and the code for a twenty eleven child theme with color priority, could you have a look and see if it is correct.

Regards

David

Current info on how to restrict access?

Michael -

Your page http://codex.wordpress.org/User:MichaelH/Plugins/Restriction is an amazing resource, but it's daunting to go through those and find that many have not been maintained. I'm guessing that since you put the page together, you've got a personal need to restrict access to content, or you know someone who does. The best solution I've found is CaPa Protect, but it's not clear if it will continue to be maintained.

I'm just wondering what your current solution is. (I've got a couple of queries on the support forum, but they don't seem to be getting any replies.)

Thanks!

Hi Nancy - I created that page just as reference for use in the forums so don't have a good answer for you. --MichaelH (talk) 13:06, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Delete all my input my contribution

I need to get back to my contribution please. I did not delete what you bring to this community. wpclever.com cost me like 3 months and you work it off that easy. I hope you reconsider and bring back my contribution.

User:Navino Seemed like spam. If you feel strongly, please join the wp-docs email list and solicit opinions there. --MichaelH (talk) 20:11, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

It looked like SPAM but it was not

You said, seemed to spam but just the opposite. It was the product of more than three months of work. And do not even see that my work has been restored. Please ask for the restoration of the work done, I expect an answer. Thank you for your time and your intention to protect the codex ;)

User:Navino As suggested above, please join the wp-docs email list and solicit opinions there. --MichaelH (talk) 13:39, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
User:MichaelH I wonder if you would look at him www.wpclever.com opens the site and see that is a contribution ;) Another thing I do not understand any of that email subscriptions. I just did an good supply.
