User documentation - Done!7 users found helpful
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".
Search for: "User documentation with license"
I'm reading it through.
Hey, just wanted to say... can you add other international groups on Page 5?
Remo's Switzerland site
Hmmm... I cannot recall anybody else.... correct me if I'm missing somebody else...
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)
But katz, any other thoughts? Just post them ^^
To be honest, I'm also busy taking care of Japanese users... and trying to get forum set up right now...
So I only skimmed though your manual... and I like how you outlined entire operation of concrete5...
I'll take a look when I have more time....
Sorry... don't really have time much this week.
But as I said before, if anyone got any comments on it, please tell me so I can update my own manuals as well ;)
So.. seperate post.
No to major updates, though
I can however do this now, got some time,
/me cleaning out logo's from dutch version.
and even adding technical stuff to the documentation. So that this part is also covered up.
i'm also very active in irc channel of concrete5 (@ dutch worktimes :) )
And IRC... hm... yeah.. can't go there while working.
Werk, werk, werk...
Thanks from a newbie struggling to understand the terrain. You've given me/us a road map.
I took the liberty of saving it to pdf format for those without Word. :) the pictures aren't quite as nice but they should work.
Here it is (791K).
But a PDF is more useful for the people who are going to read it.
Plus you can open a .doc with pretty much every rich text editor: Office Word, OpenOffice Writer, etc.
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.....
I will go at it again today. The dutch translation.
- Poking me does work -_-'
Thank you so much for taking the time and putting this together. Great work.
So, I hope some other people will pick it up ;) But then again, how much could have changed?
Perhaps a Creative Commons license would be a good idea?
The only thing that I asked was to leave my name in place for the school assignment it was part of, but now that that's over with it's free to use.
Either one of you people who want to continue to update this go right ahead, license it as you wish, Creative Commons sounds good.
(I propose you make it a web based version, no more .doc or .pdf)
But ehm... what's this?:http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/...
Looks like the website itself contains a pretty extensive documentation now. Isn't that more up-to-date and complete?
I hope to get the first edition released this week.
Just checking because I'm now able to add the license, but I only like to do it when it is still needed.
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.
I do hope to release it publicly but I would like to make some cash so I can purchase some text books without relying on my student loan.
I hope to get something done this week that covers everything but at the same time is a novel length.
I do plan to release different types like making themes from start to finish with the drop down menu an all.
The Concrete5 User documentation is just what I need.
But I cannot find the download.
Where is it please?
