User Manual - Joomla! 1.0.11

Post by ledzep » Fri Sep 29, 2006 10:27 pm

User Manual - Joomla! 1.0.11

The drafting of this User Manual is near completion!

A number of people have contributed to producing this manual. In particular, David Maggiano for drafting Chapters 3 & 4, Paul Brannon, Chris Campion and Andy for proof reading.  Ross Carrell, my partner at http://www.websdezined.com, who kept an eye on me throughout the process, other members of the Joomla! Documentation Team, Anna's Joomla Tips and many more.

To all of you, many thanks.

We have three proof readers working on it at the moment to ensure:

Clarity: To reduce the amount of technical jargon and produce clear, concise information.

Consistency: To standardize the written material so that all Joomla! Documentation is consistent in style and tone.

Correctness: To produce high-quality documentation devoid of spelling, grammar, punctuation, or usage errors.

Consideration: To make the content accessible and understandable to all people, including those from different parts of the world where English is not their native language, those with disabilities, and people from various backgrounds and cultures.

The User Manual is aimed at all levels of user, from Author to Super Administrator.  It contains all Frontend and Backend functions.

The objectives of this User Manual are to:
  • Help you to install and configure Joomla!
  • Describe the various types of Users and what their access permissions are.
  • Provide detailed instructions for both Front End and Back End inputting and site management.
I anticipate having a publishable version of the manual ready within the next two weeks.  Availability and distribution details will be posted on this forum and a public forum too.

At this time I will start working on a road map for future User Manual content.

Very good work indeed!
If 1.0.12 is the last of the 1.0.x series (and feature frozen as forecasted), this could very well be the ultimate Manual for 1.0.  :)

sure, id also not mind helping out in proof reading. Im just wondering, Ive been developing sites for my clients based on joomla, and the kind of feedback ive gotten is that there might just be too much to grasp, im wondering is a manual is in the offing for simple, content administration type users, if not, how do i start? i could help if guided a bit.

I am not inviting any more people to participate in proof reading at the moment as I feel that Andy and I need to get the
document content and format to a final draft stage, when we can then ask for everyone's participation in proof reading & preparing the final
release.
