    Audio Players, Browsers, and WordPress 

    The State of HTML5 Audio is a good article to sum up this request for an article on the Codex dealing with the unwillingness of Mozilla to pay MP3 licensing feeds and multimedia publishers and podcasters dealing with the challenges of HTML5 players versus Flash players and browsers not embracing standard audio formats.

    We need an article addressing this issue specifically in WordPress. Is the core audio management for WordPress enough to handle fallbacks or are Plugins the way to go? Which ones should we recommend to handle this? Etc.

    It’s an intermediate to advanced topic on multimedia web publishing in WordPress.

    Database Search and Replace Help 

    Article Wanted

    We need an article that addresses some of the problems and issues that would make someone want to get into their WordPress database. These might include global search and replace of text (example: web page name or address change), modifying or deleting tables or information…etc. NOT major changes, just things that answer a lot of the questions found here: http://wordpress.org/tags/mysql and Find, Search, Replace, and Delete In A WordPress Database.

      Hi Lorelle,

      Would a guide to installing and using phpMyAdmin be any good? Or perhaps an article detailing the database structure of WP? The latter may require quite a bit of work but would be useful.

      Sorry, something is broken with this Theme.

      A guide for installing phpMyAdmin is beyond the scope of the WordPress Codex.

      http://codex.wordpress.org/Database_Description is the basic guide to the WordPress database and there might be others but this probably needs updating.

    .htaccess and permalinks 

    Article Wanted

    Article wanted on the basics of htaccess for redirecting (moving servers) and understanding the permalink rewrites, and possibly blocking spammers or spiders. Very basic introduction of how WordPress uses the .htaccess and how you can use it. Maybe this is two articles?

        I can’t find it in the Codex. Would you like to make an attempt? Follow the instructions to create a User Page on the Codex and create a draft of the article on your User Page and let me know when you are ready for a review – or post a notification on the WordPress Documents Team Mailing List. See instructions in the top of the sidebar. Thanks!

    Updating the WordPress Loop 


    We have The Loop and The Loop in Action. While these are still valid, they don’t take into consideration the new hooks and links to the functions.php available in WordPress Themes. Can we update these as is appropriate for each with links to articles on functions.php and related hooks? Do we need another article going in depth on functions.php and hooks in the Loop?
