You are most welcome to join the discussions, ask questions or reply to them with your own insights, share good practices and your know-how.

 

You can also take part in writing and sharing program code. See the existing code samples, use them to your advantage, discuss them and add new ones to share and discuss with the community. Enjoy all the benefits of a true open source library.

Write a descriptive title, write your content and click the "Post" button at the bottom.

 

Be sure to add any descriptive tags. They are great tools. See Tags - Simple but powerful. How to use them? for more info.

 

Tip: you do not need to go to a specific forum before you ask a question or start a discussion. There is an even faster way. learn more here: Do I need to go to a specific forum, before I can ask a question?

 

 

How to Write How-to Guides

If you want to write anything such as a page that explains a specific topic, or a how-to guide or anything else which is not a question or a new discussion, you might want to do it by creating a new web document. A web document is not a MS Word or PowerPoint document (though these are possible as well). It is more like a wiki page actually.

 

Well, these are very easy to create also. Go to any specific forum and click the "Write a document" button

Now, write a descriptive title, write your content and click the "Post" button at the bottom.

 

Be sure to add any descriptive tags. They are great tools. See Tags - Simple but powerful. How to use them? for more info
