We need you!!!
The WordPress Codex is the official documentation site for WordPress. All the documents it contains are contributed and edited by volunteers. We're having a Codex Cleanup Week June 18-26 and we need volunteers to help us clean up the Codex and contribute articles and information.
We've created a huge list of things that need to be done on the Codex Tasks List. There are things to do for the novice and the expert. We need simple cleaning, editing, tag checking, verifying, and new articles.
To sign up: Codex: Cleanup Week
List of Things to Do and Sign Up: Codex Tasks List
Guidelines: Contributing to the WordPress Codex Guidelines
Need an Assignment: Leave a message on the Codex: Cleanup Week Discussion
Here are a few examples of what we need:
* Spell and grammar checked.
* Layouts fixed up to match the overall look of the Codex. See this article as an example.
* Validation of the pages to clean up formatting inconsistencies with the markup.
* Articles for WordPress Lessons - simple "how to" articles covering a wide range of subjects.
* Technical articles on using WordPress as a CMS, photoblog, and other interesting uses.
* Technical articles on various conditional tag and Loop usages.
* Technical article on
htaccess and rewrites.
* Article on how to add feeds to your WordPress site.
* Article on how to use Asides.
* Integrating WordPress into your website.
* Integrating advertising into your WordPress site.
And the list goes on.
We will be handing out assignments, so if you have a particular skill area, like writing plugins, CSS, or a good understanding of the WordPress core, let us know what you are up for and we'll "tell you what to do". We like doing that. ;-)
We also have a lot of tasks that do not involve editing and writing that need volunteers. If you would like to get involved in helping to promote and organize WordPress and Codex-related activities, please join the WordPress Documentation Mailing List and let us know how you would like to help.
If you have been looking for a way to contribute to the WordPress Community, this is one of the easiest ways to help. Come join us for some housekeeping. And spread the word. Everyone is invited.
BYOB and Pizza.
