WordPress 4.2 was released today. In the release notification post I was recognized as a member of “The Team” who contributed.
My Accessibility Contribution
My contribution was an enhancement request along with a patch to make the archive and category widgets ADA compliant. The primary issue was that the label tag was missing on the archive and category widget drop down menus. The other concern was that the select tag needed to have a unique ID for it to be ADA compliant. It only took 4 years for this enhancement to make it into WordPress core, but I’m happy that my contribution (enhancement request and original patch) was finally committed to WordPress core on February 23, 2015.
