Welcome to the WordPress Codex. If you are considering contributing, please review the following:
Again, welcome and let us know how we can help you help us on the WordPress Codex.
Thank you very much for your help on the WordPress Codex in editing and cleaning up. Just a couple of notes. Please check the Codex:Styles page for specifics on how we style these pages. In general, we start with a single = (h1) header for the main subjects and then go down from there. I see you have been changing these on some documents to == and I've changed them back. It is very important that we keep the Codex to web standards and this is how we do it.
Also, while it is "right" to turn sentence articles to lower case letters, we have some problems with the linking on the Codex. If you use mixed capital letters, and someone writes a link to First Steps With WordPress and First Steps with WordPress, you see that one is red and the other is blue. The red one is a dead, empty link. They should both work, but they don't. Pain.
Anyway, we appreciate all the help we can get and I just wanted to make sure you got off on the right foot here. Thanks for your help and welcome to the WordPress Codex. If you need any help, or guidance in a specific direction, let me know by leaving a message on my discussion page by clicking my name. Thanks!! Lorelle 18:55, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
It's nice to have someone around who knows how this all works. There will be big changes in the look very soon so we're doing the best we can to create a solid foundation for that change. I don't know all the details.
Also, as stated in the Welcome, to carry on a conversation here between users, you click on the users' name and go to their discussion page and leave a note. I would not have looked on your user page to see a reply if it weren't for all the monitoring we are doing this week for the cleanup. For discussions about articles, we post sequential comments on the article's discussion page. I guess we do plenty differently here. ;-)
Thanks for your help. It's really appreciated. And if you have any questions, we are in the IRC Freenode chat at #wordpress-docs and you can come by any time. If I'm sleeping, leave a note with the error_bot by typing error_bot: tell relle blah blah and I'll pick it up when I regain conciousness. Thanks! Lorelle 02:07, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)
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
Also, I thought I would add that by the end of cleanup week, the docs team decided that the move towards using single = (h1) headings wasn't going to work with the upcoming new look of the pages. So they have now changed it back to == (h2) headings. The change has been made in the Codex:Styles. So we are going through and finding the old usage and putting it back to the ==. They say this is how it will stay now. There are only a few people who control the "look" of the site and I'm one of the ones who implements not decides. Thanks again for all your efforts and if you find any of the = please change them to == ;-) Thanks! Lorelle 16:17, 30 Jun 2005 (UTC)
