Might make some people happy with this: User documentation!
I finished my version earlier than expected, how nice, and now I am offering it for download. It's about the user interface, but that's what a lot of people can use who never worked with Concrete5; the newbies.
I added the file as download. Happy reading (42 pages) :D
Some feedback, incorrect stuff, etc. would be appreciated.
(I removed some logos and names from my original document as I hate to advertise ;) )
2009-05-25: New updated version attached as download.
2009-06-23: Dutch version is added in the comments below. just ctrl+f on "Manuals dutch done"
2010-08-07: New version (with Creative Commons License) is added as download to a post in this topic, replacing the old "All rights reserved license".

Yes I could add them to the list, but if that's the only thing XD
I wrote it for a dutch audience, so... Uh.. yeah only the dutch group was named, but yeah in a new version I could add them to the list. I think there is a list on the website here somewhere so I could also link to that one (which should be up-to-date more than this document)
WEll it was required for me to finish my internship so.... I could have kept it for myself, but that would be lame against you guys. I know the manuals here are in too few numbers at the moment. Anything to contribute to the project as it is great!
If you already used your document in dutch for you internship, why don't you upload that one aswell. Every effort to complete every bit of the manual is something. Because i saw this manual is only about the dashboard interface. this isn't a developers manual. Maybe we could add this on to both english as dutch manuals.
I got it, but didn't finish it. I can't actually upload what I have now, I have a completly translated version, but there is some stuff for custom blocks and single pages that the company I worked (yeah past tense) for I want to take out first.
I try to look again tomorrow. A quick look now makes it appear I only have to rewrite the introduction text, but I might be wrong. I also got a pm about this lately...
Just reply to this post when I am slacking again.....
This is a great overview of the UI. I've found the installation process outlined by katz515 and team athttp://concrete5-japan.org/help/install/gettingready... was really well written (Japanese) and easy to understand. It answered my questions on how to display chinese characters on my English C5 install. (ie. Set collation for the database on myphpadmin to UTF8_general_ci and create a php.ini file). An English version of this installation process would be great for others who wish to make multi-lingual sites.
Well don't look at me. I wrote the first thing and I think it's great so many people have had some use of it, but I've had no experience with the new versions of Concrete5 after the version I wrote the manuals for.
So, I hope some other people will pick it up ;) But then again, how much could have changed?
No, without giving a license it's automatically copyrighted fully ("All Rights Reserved"). You, as creator, would have to license it as Creative Commons in order for it to work, and be specific about the particular CC license you would want applied to it.
Mayner I think you should just add it. That way, if anyone would like to reference or add info from it, you don't have give permission all the time.
My "Beginner's Guide" is turning out nicely and will have a lot of references from what other peeps have figured out.
It is geared towards new Concrete5 users and for site owners. So far its grown to about 150 pages (with images) and is about 50% complete. I am hoping that (with the official list of acronyms and defs (used with permission from C5) some of you guys may critique it by the end of September.
ThemeGuru, the more documentation the community has, the better it will become. I am looking forward to seeing it if you release it publicly.
