#1866 Add a basic "suggest an edit" workflow to the handbooks plugin Handbooks enhancement 07/29/2016

We've talked about this quite a bit in the context of DevHub where User Contributed Notes are occasionally used as a feedback mechanism. Basically, we need a way for docs consumers to report problems or suggest edits of published documentation on .org.

The initial proposal would be to build or use something akin to Post Forking on the front-end of handbooks and eventually other places like DevHub or HelpHub.

Personally I don't think an MVP has to be a complete solution, it mostly needs to cover the rift drawn between moving away from the Codex where any user could edit anything to the now largely closed systems on .org.

I think starting with the handbooks would be the way to go.

#4123 Proposal to improve the main navigation menu accessibility General defect 01/29/2019

Several HTML5 sectioning elements automatically create ARIA landmark regions.

Landmark regions are exposed to assistive technologies and allow users to quickly find information in a page. Ideally, all content in a web page should be wrapped within landmark regions. For now, I'd like to propose to focus on the navigation menu.

In this specific case it's important to know that <nav> elements are mapped to an ARIA role=navigation. Therefore, <nav> elements are perceived by screen readers and users can jump to them using dedicated keyboard shortcuts.

In the wp.org network, some sections don't use <nav> elements at all. For example, the home page (screenshot from Safari and VoiceOver):


Other sections do use navigation landmarks but not for the main menu. For example, the Themes section has two of them:


Same in the Plugin section sub-pages:


For clarity, these are respectively:

  • a <nav> element with a role="navigation": it was common practice to repeat the role even if redundant, to support old browsers assistive technologies
  • a <div> element with a role="navigation", which is equivalent to a <nav>

Besides technical details, the most important navigation (the main one) doesn't use a navigation landmark. Wrapping the main menu in a <nav> element would be a good, simple, improvement.

Note: when in a page there are multiple landmarks of the same type, it's important to use an aria-label to help users to distinguish them. This is also what WordPress core and the bundled themes do.


  • wrap the existing main menu markup in a <nav aria-label="Main menu">
  • where present, add to the secondary navigation an aria-label="Secondary menu" (or any better wording)
  • the toolbar already uses an aria-label="Toolbar", no need for any change


  • modernize the markup: remove role="navigation" and just use a <nav> element

Note about the wording: When screen readers encounter a <nav> element or a role="navigation", they already announce "navigation": it's recommended to not use this word in the aria-label because it would be announced twice.

#3973 Search enhancement request so that HelpHub contents will be included in the result HelpHub enhancement 12/03/2018

If you use the search bar on https://wordpress.org/support, you will see that it neither includes HelpHub articles nor excludes Codex ones.

I feel that we should well be

  1. including HelpHub in it and
  2. adding a tab for specific search
  3. removing Codex indexing

Also, search bar should say "Search documentation and forums" or something along those lines and not just forums?

#2699 Add a new role to the forums: plugin/theme support Support Forums enhancement 04/07/2017

Plugin and theme authors currently have the power to mark threads as resolved within their own support forum, which is great.

Problem description However, some of the larger plugin/theme shops have a support team to help out on their own support forums. I think it would be useful to be able to recognize those people in the support forums, like we’re able to recognize authors.

Proposal So what I would like to propose is adding a new role: Plugin/Theme Support. Everyone with this role should have rights to mark topics within their own support forum as resolved, and should not be affected by posting speed limitations for their own support forum. This role should also show in the forums as ‘Support’, similar to author.

The reason why I propose a new role, instead of adding the capability to the contributor role is because, in my opinion, they serve a different purpose. Let me explain.

A contributor is someone who helped your open source project forward. This can be by providing feedback, writing code, creating images, doing marketing or being a friend of the project, for example.

Someone working on support does contribute his/her (paid) time to your project and is in that way a contributor. However, I think there are more than enough valid use cases where you don’t want someone who contributed code (for example) once to be able to close support request on behalf of the author.

That’s why I think having a separate support role would be viable. It would show the community that this person is vetted and answering on behalf of the plugin/theme author.

Related ticket This proposal is related to ticket #2598.

Managing support role Of course, it should be possible for plugin authors to manage the list of support people. I see two reasonable ways to do so, which should be mutually exclusive.

One way is by adding the usernames to the readme.txt file, the same way contributors are currently added. The other way would be to add users the same way committers are currently added, on the Advanced View of the plugin.

Showing support staff To be transparent about this, we’d probably also need a place to list people in the support role. This could be the Advanced View page, or even the plugin page itself.

#4403 Make -- posts missing the ID called comments Make (Get Involved) / P2 defect 04/25/2019

When subscribed to a Make blog, the email sent when a post is published has a link called "See all comments", and it has a fragment ID of #comments. But there is no ID in the post named comments, so the link just takes you to the top of the post. The other link, for commenting, is to #respond, which does exist and works fine.

Here is an example from the email https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/04/25/site-health-check-in-5-2/#comments

#4695 Add FAQPage schema markup to plugin pages Plugin Directory defect 08/20/2019

Plugin pages, like https://wordpress.org/plugins/autoptimize/, often contain FAQ content.

When this is the case, we should output FAQ schema markup, with an aim to encourage Google to show FAQ questions+answers in the search results (therefore achieving extra visibility and clickthrough-rates).


  • Add an additional node to the existing schema markup on plugin pages, for "@type": "FAQPage".
  • Add a mainEntity property to house the questions.
    • Loop through each question/answer, and construct a Question node with an acceptedAnswer property.

Example output

  "@context": "https://schema.org",
  "@type": "FAQPage",
  "mainEntity": [{
    "@type": "Question",
    "name": "What does the plugin do to help speed up my site?",
    "acceptedAnswer": {
      "@type": "Answer",
      "text": "It concatenates all scripts and styles, minifies and compresses them, adds expires headers, caches them, and moves styles to the page head, and scripts (optionally) to the footer. It also minifies the HTML code itself, making your page really lightweight."
  }, {
    "@type": "Question",
    "name": "But I’m on HTTP/2, so I don’t need Autoptimize?",
    "acceptedAnswer": {
      "@type": "Answer",
      "text": "HTTP/2 is a great step forward for sure, reducing the impact of multiple requests from the same server significantly by using the same connection to perform several concurrent requests. That being said, <a href="http://engineering.khanacademy.org/posts/js-packaging-http2.htm">concatenation of CSS/ JS can still make a lot of sense</a>, as described in <a href="https://css-tricks.com/http2-real-world-performance-test-analysis/">this css-tricks.com article</a> and this <a href="http://calendar.perfplanet.com/2015/packaging-for-performance/">blogpost from one of the Ebay engineers</a>. The conclusion; configure, test, reconfigure, retest, tweak and look what works best in your context. Maybe it’s just HTTP/2, maybe it’s HTTP/2 + aggregation and minification, maybe it’s HTTP/2 + minification (which AO can do as well, simply untick the “aggregate JS-files” and/ or “aggregate CSS-files” options). And Autoptimize can do a lot more then “just” optimizing your JS &amp; CSS off course 😉"
  }, {
    "@type": "Question",
    "name": "Will this work with my blog?",
    "acceptedAnswer": {
      "@type": "Answer",
      "text": "Although Autoptimize comes without any warranties, it will in general work flawlessly if you configure it correctly. See “Troubleshooting” below for info on how to configure in case of problems."

Sanitization concerns

All HTML tags should be stripped from fields, with the exception of the text property of an acceptedAnswer, which should:

  • Accept <a>, <strong> and <em> tags.
  • Disallow/remove any values/properties/attributes of these tags (other than the href attribute on <a> tags).
  • Remove invalid markup (e.g., an <a> without a closing </a>).

#20 Possible for user's to break layout when adding forum posts Support Forums defect 07/17/2013

When a user wraps text in their forum posts with "<li>" tags - The layout of the page breaks.

For an example of this see - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/please-ignore-just-testing-something?replies=1#post-4430248

#4458 Intentionally/permanently archived forum threads should return a 410 status Support Forums defect 05/16/2019

When a forum thread is intentionally, permanently archived as a result of editorial/quality/spam decisions (e.g., see https://wordpress.org/support/topic/great-theme-alx/), the page should return a 410 HTTP status rather than a 404 status.

#2204 Forum RSS Feed Issues Support Forums defect 11/03/2016

The RSS feeds generated by the new Plugin Directory platform have a number of drawbacks/defects compared to the feeds that were generated by the old platform.

  1. When a new reply is posted to a topic:
  • The email message generated for "subscribers" to the topic also has the correct information, but the message comes as plain-text so markup for code blocks, lists, etc. is lost.
  1. When the original post in a topic was modified, the feed generates and ongoing stream of "updates" identical to the original except for the "This topic was modified 2 weeks, 6 days ago by ..." text. This makes it hard to identify topics with genuine updates.
  1. When updates are posted to old topics (e.g. started 8 months ago), no RSS feed update is generated. It is hard to know when new activity occurs in an old topic.

Minor notes:

  1. The subject line no longer includes the plugin name, which makes it harder to organize an archive by plugin.
  1. The subject line no longer includes the post author, which would be fine if the actual author value was set correctly.
  1. The subject line now identifies "[Resolved]" topics, but not any other status value.

In short, RSS updates should contain:

  • The actual text of the update, with HTML markup
  • The actual date/time of the update
  • The actual author of the update
  • A subject line that includes the plugin name and perhaps the current status in addition to the topic title.

#4311 Forums: Add notice not to report vulnerabilities Support Forums defect 03/21/2019

Sometimes people report 0-days in the forums. Perhaps we should add a notice not to report those and direct people to the right places.

Core: https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/testing/reporting-security-vulnerabilities/ Plugins: https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/plugin-security/reporting-plugin-security-issues/

Props to @benlk for the idea!

#3954 Support Forums: Add counters to moderation links Support Forums enhancement 11/24/2018

@sevlad suggested adding counters to moderation links that require an action, see an example screenshot.

For a quick access from any page, it might also be a good idea to add these links under "My Account" in admin bar, as a follow-up to [6303].

#4499 Prevent tall screenshots overflowing container Theme Directory defect 06/07/2019

Sometimes theme authors accidentally add screenshots which are too tall for the theme directory, see the below slack conversation for an example, we should limit the height of screenshots.

#4277 Profile template meta tweaks Profiles enhancement 03/15/2019
  • Change the <title> content to: {{Full Name}} ({{Username}}) - WordPress user profile | WordPress.org. E.g., Joost de Valk (joostdevalk) - WordPress user profile | WordPress.org.
  • Add and populate a meta description tag with the (sanitized) content of the Bio field, up to 160 characters (cutting off gracefully with an ellipses character).
  • Add and populate open graph tags as follows:
<meta property="og:type" content="profile" />
<meta property="og:title" content="{{Full Name}} - WordPress user profile" />
<meta property="og:description" content="{{Meta description}}" />
<meta property="og:url" content="{{URL}}" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="WordPress" />
<meta property="og:image" content="{{Gravatar Large Image}}" />
<meta property="profile:username" content="{{Username}}" />

#1424 Automate meta contributor badge assignment when receiving props Profiles defect 12/01/2015

Profile badges don't seem to automatically appear for all areas. My core and plugins badges appeared on my profile on their own (as far as I can tell), but my Speaker badge had to be added manually with some difficulty, and my Meta badge hasn't appeared at all after getting first props a few weeks ago (see [2016]).

#4280 Add schema markup to profile templates Profiles defect 03/15/2019

The following code should be adapted and added to profile templates (values from https://profiles.wordpress.org/jonoaldersonwp/ used for reference).

<script type="application/ld+json">
            "name":"{{Page title}}",
            "description":"{{Meta description}}",
            "name":"Jono Alderson",
            "jobTitle":"Special Ops",
            "worksFor": {
            "sameAs": [
            "mainEntityOfPage": { "@id" : "https://profiles.wordpress.org/jonoaldersonwp/#webpage" }

NOTE: Optional nodes (like worksFor) should only be included when the relevant profile fields are populated.

NOTE: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4277 changes the title and description contents; values here should also change and use the new values specified in #4277.

NOTE: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4278 is required to retrieve/set social profiles in the sameAs array.

NOTE: If name is not set, fall back to username.

#3003 Tagregator - Twitter resets settings randomly WordCamp Site & Plugins defect 07/26/2017


While I was working on these tickets: #2100 and #2907

I've noticed that my error log was getting grumpy and I saw this error:

[22-Jul-2017 11:26:20 UTC] PHP Notice: Undefined index: consumer_key in tggr-source-twitter.php on line 152

For some reason when you view the results page on the front end the twitter module bugs out randomly ( not all times ) and after that php error all the settings are getting reset so you are losing all login information etc.

I haven't been able to find out why.

@dipeshkakadiya is on it for a solution so we can implement it on gwtd3 new website as well.

Pointers for devs: Grab the /trunk of Tagregator through svn, apply the extra patches to have the latest as they have not been implemented yet and then work on this ticket.

#4243 Clarify Payment Gateway Account Settings for CampTix WordCamp Site & Plugins enhancement 03/06/2019

The option "None" for Tickets >> Setup >> Predefined Account is unclear - this seems like there would be no payment gateway if that setting is chosen, which makes it unclear how you can access the custom gateway settings.

Changing this label to "Custom Account" or "Local Payment Account" would be clearer.

#2894 Admin Flags: Internationalise the post-status-change label WordCamp Site & Plugins defect 06/22/2017

When toggling a status in the Flag section, the toggle afterwards is missing the capitalisation, this is because it just sets the label afterwards to the command, rather than the textual label for it.

The attached patch adds internationalised Enable/Disable text which it switches in/out instead of using the command. It's hard-coded inline with the JS, as that's the format of the current JS and changing it up further probably deserves a rethink of the entire flagging UI and storage.

#2849 Add sessions list and other details to speaker pages WordCamp Site & Plugins enhancement 06/05/2017

For the new CampSite theme we had the idea to include a speakers bio page with an improved sessions list not only showing the session title, but also an excerpt as well as links to the slides and WordPress.tv video. We decided against a page template and rather add this additional markup to the post types plugin.

#3122 Documentation for prefilling coupon field in CampTix via query string WordCamp Site & Plugins enhancement 09/11/2017

To save time and avoid typos, it would be great to support a means of that prefilling the coupon field.

For example: city.wordcamp.org/tickets?coupon=2017volunteer

Volunteers, sponsors, speakers, organizers, scholarship recipients, and others rely on coupon codes, and this would enable organizers to ensure they get the coupon code right on the first try.

#4331 News archive templates should use canonical URL tags General defect 03/26/2019

Individual news articles (like https://wordpress.org/news/2019/01/wordpress-5-0-3-maintenance-release/) correctly use canonical URL tags.

However, archives / the homepage / categories do not.

#4680 The page title structure for 'pages' on Rosetta sites is inconsistent with the main site International Sites (Rosetta) defect 08/16/2019

#2931 Plugin Directory: Incorrect parsing of code blocks Plugin Directory defect 07/05/2017

The description for Theme Check plugin appears to be parsed incorrectly (see the screenshot).

The first code sample lacks the code formatting. In the readme.txt both samples are formatted the same way:

`define( 'TC_PRE', 'Theme Review:[[br]]
- Themes should be reviewed using "define(\'WP_DEBUG\', true);" in wp-config.php[[br]]
- Themes should be reviewed using the test data from the Theme Checklists (TC)
' );`

`define( 'TC_POST', 'Feel free to make use of the contact details below if you have any questions,
comments, or feedback:[[br]]
* Leave a comment on this ticket[[br]]
* Send an email to the Theme Review email list[[br]]
* Use the #wordpress-themes IRC channel on Freenode.' );`

#4656 Plugin Directory: Check for slug conflicts before accepting Plugin Directory defect 08/02/2019

This is done in themes, but needs to happen in plugins as well.

If someone uploads a plugin with a proposed slug that is already in use, we need to have the plugin FAIL. This would prevent people from uploading their free plugin with the same name as their pro one and goofing all their users.

The breakpoint should be 50 users.

This would also need a tool on the admin end so we can see what's going on (much like we have for author cards). This WILL NOT fix a problem if we manually rename a slug per their request, but if we have the tool at least we'll be able to see why :/

#4555 Plugin Directory Administration: Mass Email Tool Plugin Directory enhancement 06/26/2019

We need an admin-only tool that will allow us to mass-email plugins.

One exists but currently can only be run by a server admin, which limits usability.

1) Provide a list of plugins

2) Provide an email subject and body with basic substitutions

3) The tool would then email everyone with commit access and listed owner the message

Substitutions needed:


With Helpscout you can pre-fill everything BUT the body: https://docs.helpscout.com/article/119-pre-fill

So it doesn't look like we can use that for our bulk-mail tool.

If it's secure and has the capability to be given a usable UX, whatever tool is used on the back-end should be fine.

Limiting the number of plugins mailed at a time is also fine. Handling more than 50 of those at a stretch is usually pretty annoying anyway :)

#2508 bbPress and Meta Trac should be able to change closed tickets resolution reason Trac defect 02/16/2017

If a ticket on bbPress or Meta Trac is closed with a particular resolution the resolution cannot be changed without reopening the ticket:

eg: bbPress Trac (Meta is identical):

  • https://cldup.com/zOd8gj9Bro.png

BuddyPress and Core Tracs can change resolution withot reopening the ticket:

  • https://cldup.com/OVt4-n_X-A.png

Taking a punt that the following code needs to be added to bbPress and Meta Trac "workflow-*.ini" files. I know bbPress and BuddyPress "workflow-*.ini" files are yet to be open sourced, presuming the same for meta:

Via: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/trac.wordpress.org/conf/workflow-core.ini#L64

# Once the ticket is closed
# - reopen
# - change the resolution to something else

change_resolution = closed -> closed
change_resolution.name = change the resolution, set
change_resolution.operations = set_resolution
change_resolution.permissions = TICKET_EDIT_DESCRIPTION
change_resolution.default = -31

Aside: It wouldn't hurt to add the "mark as duplicate" section also ;)

#4559 Dedicated robots.txt file for translate.wordpress.org Translate Site & Plugins enhancement 06/28/2019

This consumes huge amounts of crawl budget, for relatively little return. We'd like to block crawling of it entirely, via robots.txt.

At the moment, it shares a robots.txt with other wordpress.org domains, which makes this impossible.

Can we give it a dedicated robots.txt file, which is separate from other sites, with the following contents:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /*
Noindex: /*
Allow: /$

NB: We'll need to be absolutely certain that this is a standalone file, and doesn't bleed through to any other WP domains/contexts, or we'll cause the end of the world.

If/when this is complete, the ?filter rule can be removed from the shared/global robots.txt file.

There are a couple problems with our current data set. They're not strictly related to each other, but I'm creating a single ticket for this because I'm guessing that the solution to both will be the same: switch from our current data source to a better one.

It looks like our database was updated recently (March 2017), but I can't find any info on where the original data comes from. @dd32, @tellyworth, do either of you know? Do you have any thoughts on other potential sources?

It would be helpful if the forums logged who marked a post resolved (or unresovled) as well as closed etc.

From a moderator perspective, this would help track down plugin developers (for example) who automate resolving tickets. It would also mean we'd know who to ping if someone closed a post without a comment.

#668 Open-source News Theme General enhancement 10/23/2014

While we were building the new bbPress theme we discovered that the WordPress theme live on https://wordpress.org/news/ would've been the best starting point. We now had to hack together stuff from various places.

#4535 Delete "Hello World" posts (and tidy up empty blogs) International Sites (Rosetta) enhancement 06/26/2019

Various Rosetta sites have a blog with a "Hello World" post. These should be deleted. Because of the incorrect hreflang setup on these sites, these posts cause an absolute SEO nightmare as Google seeks out their (non-existent) siblings across the whole network.

E.g., https://tg.wordpress.org/2012/08/23/hello-world/ https://tt.wordpress.org/2014/07/08/hello-world/ https://fao.wordpress.org/2016/07/20/hello-world/ https://dzo.wordpress.org/2015/02/24/hello-world/ https://kab.wordpress.org/2015/02/24/hello-world/ https://sa.wordpress.org/2011/07/26/hello-world/ https://hau.wordpress.org/2016/07/15/hello-world/ https://bre.wordpress.org/2015/07/17/hello-world/ https://ak.wordpress.org/2016/03/05/hello-world/ https://es-pr.wordpress.org/2016/03/05/hello-world/ https://rup.wordpress.org/2016/03/05/hello-world/

I don't have an easy way of finding them all from the outside-in - I'm hoping that these should be easy to round up?

It's also worth considering that in many cases, these are the only blog posts on these blogs. E.g., https://dzo.wordpress.org/news/, https://bre.wordpress.org/news/

Ticket Summary Component Milestone Type Created
#1278 Plugins Install API: Add ability to order results API enhancement 10/01/2015

Copied over from #wp12696:

Replying to apeatling:

It would be awesome if you could pass an ordering parameter to plugins_api() that would allow you to return a list of filtered plugins in a specific order.

I'd love to be able to use the API to return a list of the most popular / newest / recently updated plugins on the repo that contain the tag "buddypress".

Something like this would be awesome:

$plugins = plugins_api( 'query_plugins', array( 'tag' => 'buddypress', 'page' => 1, 'order' => 'popular' );

Even better, also allow search filtering:

$plugins = plugins_api( 'query_plugins', array( 'tag' => 'buddypress', 'search' => 'album', 'page' => 1, 'order' => 'popular' );

I'd be happy to implement this if I can get access to the API source on WordPress.org.

Reply from Otto:

This wouldn't be terribly difficult to add to the API, but it's pointless until core supports doing it there and is able to request the ordering. So, moving to the plugins component.

Now that the arguments for plugins_api() have been documented, paired with the fact that there are existing filters in plugins_api() for modifying arguments, I think there's now a more compelling case for implementing an 'orderby' (or similar) argument in the dotorg API.

#4126 "Special contributions" template leaks PII Codex defect 01/30/2019

E.g., https://codex.wordpress.org/Special:Contributions/Jany2786@gmail.com

This template should have a meta robots value of 'noindex, follow'.

#4259 No Twitter Card Found Developer Hub defect 03/11/2019


There's no Twitter Card found for https://developer.wordpress.org/ on sub-pages.

#4109 Skip to content link missing in many pages or not working properly General defect 01/28/2019

"Skip links" are one of the most simple and better known ways to improve accessibility for keyboard users and assistive technologies users. They allow to bypass blocks of content that are repeated on multiple pages, typically: navigation menus.

They're implemented since years in WordPress core and the bundled themes. They're also part of the WCAG recommendation:

Success Criterion 2.4.1 Bypass Blocks https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#bypass-blocks

In order to be effective, a skip link used to bypass the top navigation needs to:

  • be the first focusable element in a page
  • be revealed on focus
  • point to the main content in the page

Far from pretending to be a complete analysis of all the .org network pages, I've gone through the main pages linked in the main navigation menus. To recap:

  • Home: no skip link
  • Showcase: no skip link
  • Themes: no skip link
  • Plugins: skip link is not the first focusable element
  • Mobile: no skip link
  • Support: skip link is not the first focusable element
  • Get involved (Make): no skip link
  • About: skip link is not the first focusable element and it doesn't appear on focus (conflicts with clip-path: inset(50%); inherited by social-icons.css)
  • Blog: no skip link
  • Hosting: no skip link

I realize the .org network is made of different templates coming from different sources and I guess it's a complicated setup. However, it would be great to make sure the skip to content link is actually present in all pages and works properly.

#4478 Add an `.editorconfig` file to the root of the meta repo General enhancement 05/27/2019

Adding the https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/.editorconfig file to the root of the meta repo should help avoid basic coding standards issues when contributing to the meta team.

Using the same .editorconfig from core should not cause any issues with the current meta projects.


#2467 Plugins not showing on plugin-install screen Plugin Directory Plugin Directory v3.0 defect 02/02/2017

Not sure if this is a Meta issue, nevertheless, it could be related to the plugins directory. I was doing a plugin search on plugin-install screen of a 4.7.2 site and got a strange behaviour: the search didn't return all the items available. The number is right – 5 items –, but I can only see 4 items on te screen: http://g.recordit.co/yMeHcCzUSY.gif

#4253 Plugins API `query_plugins` produces wrong number of results Plugin Directory defect 03/09/2019

The per_page argument for the Plugins API query_plugins action seems to return the wrong number of results in some cases.

So, if you limit the per_page to 20, you only get 19 items back event though that there are more than 20 results available.

We are hitting this issue with the WP-CLI plugin search command, which shows the exact count of elements returned. See https://github.com/wp-cli/extension-command/issues/156 for the related issue.

#4306 Plugin Admin: Update Plugin Stats Report to use HelpScout Plugin Directory defect 03/20/2019

Currently Stats_Report (plugins/plugin-directory/tools/class-stats-report.php) checks SupportPress

We've moved so we'll need to update those checks to use (I think) the API for HelpScout


#815 Forums to Support Syntax Highlighting Support Forums Q1 enhancement 01/15/2015

Quite often we're sharing code snippets to help our users when providing support. I would love to see the support forums support syntax highlighting. In it's current implementation it's not incredibly helpful to the end user.

Here's an example: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/reorder-posts-in-collection?replies=4

#2107 Prevent posting 10k lines of logs in replies, recommend Pastebin or GitHub gists Support Forums Q1 enhancement 10/04/2016

To provide debugging information some users post their full logs in a reply. These can be up to 10k lines which makes reading the page really annoying because you have to scroll like 5 minutes.


I suggest to prevent posting replies which have more than X chars/words/lines and to recommend using a service like Pastebin or GitHub gists.

#2260 Support Forums - Support three backticks Support Forums Q1 enhancement 11/21/2016

Since people are getting more and more used to slack and markdown and the three backticks for code blocks, we should consider supporting that in bbPress

#2320 Global stats for GlotPress to identify possible future GTE Translate Site & Plugins enhancement 12/08/2016

On some locales (like Catalan), most of the translations are done by 3-4 people (with 2 of them being GTE), even if according to https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/ca there are 10 GTE, and almost a 100 contributors.

This is a problem not only because it simply doesn't scale (with the amount of strings that themes & plugins have, 3-4 people are not enough), but also because is extremely hard for GTEs to identify "active" contributors to help and guide them so they become one day GTE, and for contributors to find active GTE so their strings get approved and don't stay forever as pending.

Ideally, there should be a way of "filtering" the teams page (https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/?locale=ca) with some kind of "active" filter, with active being a rule such as "has translated/reviewed more than X strings (could be 0) in the last 3-4 months".

That could help to really asses the health of a team, as you could quickly identify how many people is actively contributing to the project.

Also, if that filter included some kind of aggregated cross-project stats (similar to the ones you get "per-project" in translate.wp.org), pointing to the projects they contributed, it would be easier to "measure" the amount of contributions people is doing: I, as a GTE, am more in validating strings translated by someone who contributes regularly than strings from someone who only translated 1 string two months ago. Computing such a huge amount of stats won't be light in terms of resources, but in order to be useful, these stats don't need to be "live": a weekly update would be more than enough to get a sense of the current state.

This would also give extra visibility to the health of the team, on top of the "activeness" filter: knowing there are 100 people active when 99 of them only have translated one string isn't a sign of healthy at all.

Note: See TracReports for help on using and creating reports.
