    WPMU to WPMS 

    All Codex articles labeled WPMU need to be changed to WPMS for the name change from WordPress Multiuser to WordPress Multisite.

    They also need to be changed from [[Category:WPMU]] to [[Category:WPMS]]

    WordPress Version Pages 

    The following are notes and discussions on adding and changing how the WordPress version pages are displayed. Currently, there are a lot of blanks on the http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions page.

    Also, remember to put the following category on all Version pages. [[Category:Versions]]

    YEAH: David Ransier stepped up and cleaned up ALL the blank pages on the WordPress Versions Page during our WordPress Codex BBQ party! YAHOO!

    Pages Wanted: Articles Needed by Demand 

    The Wanted Pages listing on the WordPress Codex http://codex.wordpress.org/Special:WantedPages is a listing of links created on other articles but no page exists. It goes to a blank edit page on the Codex, begging for information.

    Sometimes these are created incorrectly, a misspelling in the text or link, so the link needs to be fixed so the user will land on the right referring article.

    Sometimes these are pages that shouldn’t exist but at the time, the author thought it was a good idea or they would get to it later but found it lacked a need, and they forgot to remove the link.

    Sometimes these are pages desperately needed on the Codex. Thus, these become wanted articles, a form of to do list on the Codex.

    Use your best judgement when going through the list of Wanted Pages on the Codex and help us clean up this list.

    Articles Needing Editing 

    If you are just looking for something to do, instead of mindlessly poking the WordPress Codex, check out the http://codex.wordpress.org/Category:Copyedit listing. These are articles in our special category for noting articles in need of editing, review, and fixing.

    Edit away. If it looks like it’s done, remove the category and it will go off the list. Find one that needs to be in that category, please add [[Category:Copyedit]] to the bottom of the post.

    Celebrate the 8th Birthday of WordPress by Contributing to the Codex! 

    WordPress is 8 years old in May 2011. It’s amazing how far WordPress, the free web publishing platform, has come. From a tiny fork called B2 to WordPress as it is today, it was mostly done with the love, passion, and personal commitment by thousands of volunteers. What started as a wish to blog better is now being used by millions and millions of people and businesses around the world.

    To honor the eight amazing years of WordPress, WordCamp Developers is kicking off a month long project to update and add to the wealth of information on the , the online manual for WordPress Users, and your help is needed.

    We are looking for anyone of any user level and familiarity with WordPress.

    • Can you read and write and fix spelling or grammar errors, we need you.
    • If you are familiar with the latest version of WordPress and want to help us update all our docs, go for it.
    • If you are a WordPress Theme whizbang, we need updates and articles to help guide people through all the things you can do with a Theme.
    • If you are a WordPress Plugin geewhiz, we need your help to update and add articles on every aspect of writing a WordPress Plugin.
    • If you have a tip, tutorial, or technique for using WordPress, please add your wisdom to the free online manual for WordPress users.

    There are so many ways you can help. Just jump in or check out the specific ways you can say happy birthday to WordPress through the WordPress Codex.

    We’ve put together How to Help the WordPress Codex and Writing Tips for the WordPress Codex to help get you started.

    This blog, WordPress Documentation Team – Codex Things to Do List, is to help us with this month long celebration which begins with WordCamp Developer, May 5, 2011. It is designed to list the things to do efforts on the Codex, to direct volunteers to specific tasks, and answer questions along the way.

    On May 5th at WordCamp Developers, teams will be volunteering throughout the day to help update and add to the Codex. Everyone is invited to join us.

    To join us, simply jump in. To take on a task, comment on the task to let the world know you are working on it. If you have any questions along the way, ask on that task. When done or ready for someone else to jump in, let us know on that comment.

    It would help us all if you would bold task updates such as Taken, Open, Ready for Review, or Done.

    Got a suggestion for a new article or task, ask away. Start a new post.

    We’ll be chatting live on the FreeNode IRC at #wordpress-docs.

    The hashtag for the WordPress Codex birthday project is #wpdocs. The hashtag for WordCamp Developers is #WCDev.

    Thanks to everyone on the WordPress Development Team, Vancouver WordPress Meetup Group in Vancouver, BC, WordCamp Developers, also in Vancouver, and for helping to kick off the 8th birthday of WordPress in May.

    Help send a birthday message with a thank you to the WordPress Community, and help us enrich the documentation that so many people rely upon.

      Hi Lorelle!

      Synotac will definitely pitch in on this: Bill, Nate, and I for sure, and some other folks on staff as well may pitch in. We use the Codex all the time, and then go root around in the WordPress code or online elsewhere when we can’t find what we’re looking for. We’d love to help improve the Codex. Also, we have an internal wiki we use for our own projects that probably has some good resources and notes to transfer to the Codex.

      Thanks for organizing this!

      I love this idea – much easier to follow than the mailing list and really really clear what needs to be done.
