My First Core Contribution

4.1 contribution - broken screenshotWith WordPress 4.1 came my first contribution to Core! Woot woot!

Trac ticket #30011

Changeset 29947

While playing with the Twenty Fifteen theme a development website, I happened to notice that one set of conditions resulted in HTML being rendered to screen rather than properly evaluated as HTML markup. A quick Trac ticket and a patch later, and my change was accepted into the 4.1 release cycle!

Obviously a very minor change, but an important one that needed to be made before the new Twenty Fifteen theme could/should be released along with WordPress 4.1. Looking forward to making more contribution efforts Рand hopefully larger ones Рto Core in the future!
