Happy New Year from everyone at concrete5! In November Andrew introduced community driven documentation. We definitely need more people helping out to keep the documentation up to date. More voices will make the docs better for everyone.

In November Andrew quietly launched a brand new concrete5 documentation site. How to develop add ons, how to make templates, how to upgrade concrete5, tutorials - its all there, and now its easier than ever to navigate.

We've launched some new developer documentation today!

Working With Blocks

This section has more to come, specifically around the need to create block types. That's not quite done, but what is there is a comprehensive look at creating custom templates, including defaulting to a custom template in a package, overriding core block type views, including JavaScript and CSS with custom templates and more. We've also put together a detailed screencast on overriding a core block type view layer, and why you'd want to do something like that.

Additionally, we've consolidated some documentation sections in the header navigation, and cleaned up the Documentation landing page.

Just wanted to let everyone know that there's completely new Concrete5 5.7 developer documentation available []( We will be adding to it regularly, and whenever we do I'll update the recent additions sidebar, as well as post about it here. The designing with Concrete5 section should be mostly completed, and now we've shifted focus to complete and thorough documentation about building block types and working with existing block types. Stay tuned!
