Again, welcome and let us know how we can help you help us on the WordPress Codex.

Hi Westi! Thanks for contributing to Codex. Please let me know if I can help you with anything ;-} MichaelH (talk) 13:15, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

You said "Maybe we need a bit actually about how you can harden the server that WordPress is on e.g. hardenedphp mod_security" in discussing the Hardening WordPress guide. I agree, but don't think that the Codex is the best place to discuss these issues. Perhaps we can provide links to guides on chrooting, hardenedphp, mod_security, Snort, and the like. --Eads 09:41, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

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

Welcome back!

Welcome back from your fun in the sun and bugs! We had some very interesting vandals while you were away but all were caught within minutes, keeping your record clean. ;-)

There is also an interesting thread on the forum on adding technorati tags to quicktags that might work into the article: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/24356 as a great addition. Hope you had fun! Lorelle 19:15, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)


First of all, I finally am on long enough to congratulate you on your new position within the Codex. Use the power wisely, carry a big stick, and do BIG THINGS. Welcome to the club. Now we have someone else to blame when things go wrong. ;-)

Second, I'm still going to be offline for a while. We will be heading back to Mobile tomorrow (Tuesday) and there is currently electricity and water but no cable - which means no Internet. Can you ask in the chat for some folks to help you out with the article and do the best you can.

Congrats and have fun with your new power! Lorelle 16:23, 5 Sep 2005 (GMT)


Hi, Westi.

I saw you revert the edit I've made on Template_Tags/the_content_rss. If I made a mistake, I strongly apologize but...

IMHO, the_content_rss() does the same things than the_content(). And, after having checked in the WP code, the_content_rss() don't display the text before the <!--more--> quicktag if strip_teaser is set, just as the_content() does. So, the parameter definition is not right at this moment. That's why I've tried to change it.
