Come documentarista avete l'invidiabile compito di creare materiale per una vasta gamma di lettori, dagli utenti principianti agli sviluppatori professionali avanzati. Avrete bisogno di sapere come usare vari strumenti (come questo wiki) e avrete bisogno di leggere linee guida e altri metadocumenti. Probabilmente avrete bisogno di aggiornare questi documenti nel tempo.


Please be aware that the official language of the project is British English (en-GB). There is a tendency for American spellings to creep into the documentation, feel free to correct these wherever you see them.

The following material is important for documentators working on all areas of the Joomla! project.

Documentation wiki

The bulk of the documentation effort now revolves around this wiki.

Internal References

  • List of local wiki templates that can be used in your wiki pages. Templates reduce repetition and are the basis of modular documentation.
  • List of local wiki extensions that have been installed on this wiki. Extensions provide additionally functionality to the wiki such as syntax highlighting and link search.
  • List of local interwiki links that are available on this wiki. These provide useful shortcuts to creating URLs to other websites including the Joomla! forum, help screens and issue tracker; as well as links to the PHP documentation or Wikipedia.

Help screens

The Documentation Working Group is responsible for writing and maintaining the official help screens. For Joomla! versions up to and including 1.5.x the help screens must be hosted on a Joomla! instance. From Joomla! 1.6 onwards the help screens will be hosted on this wiki.
