While the code server is temporarily down (and work underway to fix it), you can still get access to articles and information you need, though not as “pretty”.
When Google crawls through the site, they make a “cached” version or copy of the page. Using Google, search for what you are looking for on the Codex and then choose the cached link to see the article information.
Isn’t that handy?
Yes, Lorelle, that is handy.
BTW: I think you deserve a BIG thanks from the user community for being so helpful and *nice* all the time 🙂
Everyone should be thanked. I do so little compared to so many.
…please… the time and effort she just put in to dropping by my site just to give me some hints and stuff was so great. I really appreciate each and every word that she wrote..
but that google thing.. umm yeah you are right better something then nothing at all.
….and just when I was going for the archive tags nest..
I tried to use a cached page a bit ago and it wouldn’t pull up either.
Dang it and I was going to work on a brand-spanking new theme when I got home…I need the codex… 🙁
The Codex software was undergoing a routine upgrade. Sorry. Next time we should make an annoucement.
I found today that the Google Cache method took FOREVER to come up, but finally did when I needed some Codex pages. That was odd, it usually works much faster, but that’s a Google problem, not Codex.
Still, I’m glad that people are starting to rely upon it as a resource. It’s taken a lot of hard work to gather information and volunteers to write and edit the documentation for it. It’s all volunteer and if you want to help, we could sure use you!!!!.
Volunteering sounds good, but if you aren’t familiar with the interface, it’s is a bit daunting to step into.
Even if you aren’t familiar with the interface, anyone can join the wp-docs mailing list and let the other volunteers know that you want to contribute an article and we’ll take it from there. Or just start a user page and paste in the information (please let us know on the mailing list) and we’ll come in and fix it all up for you and give it a nice “home” on the Codex.
It is actually much easier than you imagine. There isn’t any HTML or much to learn. Just write it out with some section titles and we can do the rest. We have a nice group of editors who just edit and not contribute, so they are always looking for new material to fix up. And new editors to help them.
We have a lot of holes in the documentation that need filling, and we’re looking for help, so if you are interested, please volunteer. And if you are nervous or intimidated, we do hand holding on the IRC Chat for #wp-docs. 😉
You know, I want to say after spending some time reading through the Codex, that it really is well-written and well-put-together and there’s a lot of good design information there that isn’t specific to WP.
My only complaint is that I’m unable to do printer-friendly pages without images (some of the articles have images embeded), but really that’s not a big deal.
I am printing up everything I think I’m going to need to work on my new blog design while on the plane this weekend. Somehow I don’t think they will have wi-fi on independence air. 😉
