If you have only recently starting working with Joomla you will probably have experienced the pain of learning a new system. New terminology, new ways of doing things, perhaps even the web itself may be new to you. Then let these guides relieve some of that pain.
You don't need to register here if you just want to read the documentation.
You should only register if you want to make changes to the information contained here. Also note that registration on this wiki is entirely separate from registration on our other sites, such as the forum.
Joomla 2.5 is the next LTS release and is the last in the 1.6/1.7/2.5 series.
With 2.5 safely released the focus of development will shift to 3.0, currently scheduled for release in September 2012. This will be the first of a new series (3.0/3.1/3.5) and maintaining backwards compatibility with 2.5 will not be required.
The Joomla Platform is available. Development will be time-based with roughly a three-month release cycle.
You don't need to join the Documentation Working Group to help us improve the documentation. Just register on this wiki and get started. Feel free to fix any errors you find; take a look in the Cookie jar; or consider helping out in one of our mini-projects...
This project focuses on the administrator Joomla! 2.5 Help screens and Joomla! 3.3 Help screens. Unless a Joomla! Installation is modified, all core component Help screens are being served from this wiki. The summary status of each Joomla! Help screen can be found in the previous links.
