  • Jennifer Dodd: Upgrading the WordPress.org Support Forums (How to Eat an Elephant)

    WordCamp US 2017Speaker: Jennifer Dodd

    December 8, 2017 — In the summer of 2016, I upgraded the WordPress.org support forums
    from bbPress 1 to bbPress 2.x. This talk will be done as an interview
    conducted by Mika Epstein.

    It will cover the following topics:
    – Getting the lay of the land; figure out storage, destination,
    sandbox, meta environment.
    – Formulating goals: Minimize downtime, clean import, remove spam/dead
    topics when possible.
    – MVP in terms of forum functionality.
    – Native bbPress importer versus direct SQL script.
    – Community support and notification.
    – Staging and testing on live sites.
    – 10x rule for new problems: memory leaks, multibyte language character count
    truncation, different slug lengths between schemas, saturated postmeta queries.
    – Planned downtime.
    – WSOD disaster two days before the scheduled changeover at 95% data load.
