Joomla user manual in PDF

Post by mafkal » Thu Aug 24, 2006 4:14 pm

Hi,
I am new to Joomla and read the PDF user manual, but chapters 5-7 and appendix are missing. Also "Add static item" and "add menu item" do not appear. I looked for them anywhere in joomla site and other tutorial sites, I also searched this forum but couldn't find these chapters...
Can anyone tell me where they might be hidin?
I want to print them and work on my site, and there are some staff that just dont work...

Thank you,

Mafkal

Hi,
I am Christopher Campion a newcomer to Joomla!. I recently changed my web host and while browsing through
the control panel I found Joomla!. I read about it and liked what I read so installed it and now have quite a decent site.
Now I wanted some instructions on how to use Joomla! so I went to the help site. Now being a bit lazy I did not want to have to go back to the site every time for more information. So to make things easier for me I decided to download all the pdf files
and compiled them into a manual. If this is any help to you here's the link to my site where you can download a copy.

The user manual link is not working at the help.joombla.org site. (user_manual_draft_10.13.06.pdf).

Thanks,

The new version of this manual is to be released on Monday - all being well. And this is the 'complete' version.

See http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,105976.0.html for the full details.

The link at the main Help site http://help.joomla.org has a article titled "Joomla User Manual 1.0.11 - Now available"
The link given http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1670/ leads you to a section which tells you to login?  :'(

I found another link in the left menu under Official Manuals which had the PDF but the link should be fixed.

Would anyone be able to send me the manual in JPEG format, 72 dpi ?

Yes, I know it's 183 pages, but I think I've found something that would increase buy-in to J! as a project significantly in how it manages documentation.

Hi

I am currently working on a set of amendments and corrections to errors in the document and trying to get the thing converted to an interactive format PDF ( as well as an xml version!) so I am a bit tied up at the mo.

For future reference do you mean each page as a separate .jpg as this is not something I have come across before?

Cheers
Andy

Yes, that's what I'm looking for.

The version I plan to turn out is also going to be interactive, but in a different way.

It´s 12 MB (jpg, 72 dpi). The best way to get your jpgs is:

Download Acrobat Trial 7.0 from Adobe
Install the Trial version
Open the document and Save it as jpg
Select the appropiate settings for you needs

I did it so, but the jpgs quality is poor.

If you prefer my files I will compress them and send the compressed file to your email addy.

OK.. Never thought you could bulk export to JPG from Acrobat.. Better check what options I have on my version.. 8)
