    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.

    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.

    WordPress Trac Tutorial 


    Trac is pretty much the same as it has been, but it has gotten easier to submit patches and track the status of the core development of WordPress. All documentation on how to submit to Trac, track patches and code, and such need to be updated accordingly.

    There are some general articles on how to submit patches and updates to Trac that also need updating. Thanks!
