Hi

I have just downloaded XOOPS and I am currently playing! I have looked at the documentation (not all of it but just what seems relevant to a newbie!) and I cannot find anything that takes you on a journey to set up a site!

What I mean is....
Ok you have just installed XOOPS for the first time, now what? Well here is what we did to set up a site that has a front page listing .....
The site also contains a wiki, a blog, a gallery, etc.

The document could then enable newbies to see step by set how to go about this.

I would gladly start to write my tails as I go along and pass it to the docs team. Would this help?

Thanks

Rich

P.S. Excellent programme!

Rich and Jenny, if you want a workspace for this, you are welcome to use the Docs site. It would be nice to see some activity going on here again.

Forums, file uploads, etc.

I think this could be a valuable document as we are seeing more and more entry-level users coming to Xoops.

One of the first requirements as I see it, is to define terminology and de-mystify some of the jargon that we all take for granted. Maybe the section the FAQ can help here?
let me know,

Thanks.

Hi Richard

More than happy to. Will download the starting point, print off and get writing.

Whilst writing did you want me to get going on the newbb post as well or am I waiting something from you.

Thanks

Rich

The newbb does need doing, but that depends on your workload of course.

I will PM you soon.
