WordPress Trac

Trac is the place to follow along with the development of WordPress. You can track changes in the Timeline section of this site. There is also an RSS feed and a mailing list for those interested.

Bugs reports are also kept on Trac. If you are looking to submit a bug report, please head on over.

You may login to this site using your WordPress.org username and password. If you don't already have one, sign up at the forums.

You can browse the source here, but you probably want to check out WordPress using Subversion.

Security Issues

If you have encountered a security issue that isn't addressed in a released version of WordPress, please contact security at wordpress.org with detailed information.


There are many ways to contribute to WordPress. If you want to get started quickly, test a patch, or grab a bug and see if you can reproduce the problem it describes. Don't miss the test automation tools.

If you have an idea for a feature, but not the ability to code it yourself, share your idea at WordPress Ideas.

The Life of a Ticket

Reporting Bugs in the WordPress Codex tells how to report a bug obviously, what all the keywords we use in Trac mean, and more.


If you would like to receive notification when a ticket you have submitted or are interested in changes then please configure your email address in trac after you have logged in by going to the Preferences page.

If you then add your user name to the cc on a ticket you will be notified of changes on the ticket.
