Accomplished Big WordPress Goal Today

As most of you know, I’m a huge WordPress fan, even so much so that I now work for Automattic, the company behind WordPress.

For the last few years, I’ve had a goal of contributing to WordPress core. Basically I wanted to find a bug in the code somewhere and notify the team and have the bug fixed.

Well, today is that day.

It all started yesterday when a user wrote in with a problem with their website. With their current theme, when they added the form for people to subscribe to their blog, the text box was completely white, without a border and the text inside the box was white as well.

After confirming that it was a bug with the theme, I submitted my first bug report to WordPress core. Here is the link to the trac ticket:

And here is the screenshot of my ticket:
