Issue 75

We are building features for the Women Who Code community and we want  to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our  contributors for dedicating their valuable time to help us build tech a  place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.


This week has seen some great new additions to the Women Who Code product, as well as some minor fixes for pesky issues we've uncovered.

We've implemented a WYSIWYG editor on all posting portions of the Women Who Code website. This affects anyone who updates and posts blogs, static pages, network pages or plan posts. It should also lead to an improved design experience and more attractive and functional pages across the website. Complimenting this, we also added Vagrant to the website, which is a configuration for a re usable, re-buildable development environment for website contributors, both existing and new ones!

Other new updates include expanding customers abilities to choose a date for their CODE Review promotion, and an update for the job board description toolbar text to make it more accessible.

As far as fixes we resolved an error messaging problem that was causing some confusion when customer's orders were not going through. We also fixed some minor problems that were occurring with markdown language styling including a switch from divs to labels.
