UPDATED AGAIN: WordPress ready for (beta) action

Ta-da!

It’s rough around the edges in quite a few places. I haven’t touched the styling of the comments. The member profile functionality is ugly out of the box as well. It still needs work, but it should support a test dynasty. Tomorrow I will write some docs on how to get around in the WordPress admin, add player accounts, clone the ruleset and try to adjust what needs adjusting, etc.

In a day or two, when the general feeling is that the cloned rules are ready, everyone who wants to play in the beta has an account, and we agree on how to start a test dynasty (which I have very strong opinions on, yet I am not the boss of anyone), we’ll get going for real.

If you definitely want to play in the beta, leave a comment below. Also, if you want to, poke around the test site and let me know if you can already find anything that needs fixing! Maybe start a wiki page for Second Switch bugs if you find them.

I will update this post tomorrow with progress.


UPDATE: I’ve squashed a lot of bugs, I believe I’ve added all the users who have requested it, and I have a draft of a ruleset for the test on the wiki. Please leave feedback on the rule draft in Slack, in the comments, or in the talk page on the wiki. Later today I will write some guides to the new site, and then soon I’ll put forth my suggestion for how to proceed with a test dynasty.

UPDATE 2: I’ve published a primer on Elementor, an important part of how I’ve made the WordPress site, on the wiki. There is work to be done, and I’m sure there are bugs to be fixed, but I think we’re getting close to kicking off a beta dynasty.

I’m in, but I can’t figure out how to make an account, so I’m assuming that someone else needs to do it.

I just tried to set the currently open post to failed (just to see if I could) and it came back with the following error message:

It seems like I can’t make a new post; when I tried I got a similar message to the one I got when I tried to edit the status of a post, but the new post hasn’t appeared on a post.
