7 Februari: Video conference on the state of the WordPress Caldera Forms Plugin

During the UK sprint last December a couple of people (mainly Kevin and Klaas) have worked on the WordPress Caldera Plugin. Since May 2022 the CiviCRM Community took over the maintenance of the caldera forms plugin (not to be confused with the Caldera CiviCRM Plugin). The caldera forms plugin is a tool to create forms in WordPress and the are a couple of plugins which integrates Caldera with CiviCRM. Because quite a few organizations uses this plugin on their website to let users enter data into CiviCRM we decided as a community to maintain the plugin. Since then not much development has happened, which is a good sign because it means that the plugin still works! But lately servers are migrating to PHP 8 which causes Caldera to break. Right now that seems to be fixed by Kevin and Klaas. However we have not created a new release yet. Because if we want to do that people would probably expect all sorts of things so before bringing out a first release we want to discuss this. At the moment the Caldera Plugin is not available (anymore) on wordpress.org but it is on https://lab.civicrm.org/extensions/caldera-civicrm/caldera-forms/-/releases Feel free to join the video call where we will discuss the current state of caldera and the next steps. The video call will be held on google meet: https://meet.google.com/jps-pkef-ggw On 7th of Februari at 16:00 (CET) / 10AM EST Thanks, Jaap Jansma, Kevin Cristiano and Klaas Eijkelboom
