Hello! My name is Chad. I was instructed to create a thread here to let you all know that I am working on Issue 26. Some people may recognize my user name as I post fairly regularly in the Support forums for Joomla! 1.0.x.
I've been around Joomla! Forums for a while, but I've had experience in using Joomla! for about 1.5 years. I am 17 year old home schooled high school student, and live in a small town in New York. (I also attended Joomla!Day NYC). I've actually finished my last year of high school (home schooling is awesome!), and will be attending a community college in the summer of 2008. I'll be attempting to get an Associates Degree in web development, and possible when I finish that an AS in Photo/Video Journalism.
So, I claimed Issue 26, which was creating a document on how to use Joomla!'s 'Register to read more' function. I actually didn't know how to do this in Joomla! 1.5, so before I accepted the task I went and taught myself. I am writing my document in Microsoft Word. I'm also using a lot of screen shots, and photoshop (CS2) in the document as well.
I've written a few tutorial documents, mainly in using computers, photoshop etc...This is the first one I will have ever done for Joomla! But, hopefully, it won't be the last.
Well, I guess thats about all I can think of that is important to tell you all.
I have a few questions, though. I was planning on providing my document as a PDF. I read somewhere that you were supposed to use Open Office...I don't have Open Office, and wasn't intending on using it unless it was absolutely required. (If I do I have to use it then I'll probably do my entire tutorial on Ubuntu, it comes with Open Office). Should I just provide my MS Word document? Or will a PDF be acceptable, or should I do both?
