Sources of wisdomIn order to improve the documentation, you need wisdom about how the software works. Here are places to look.
- tiki.org — If you can't find it here, do a search there first. Tiki.org was formerly the main center for documentation, but much of it is now out of date.
- Tiki.org forums — Post a question in the appropriate forum.
- The 1.9 documentation — Check the last comprehensive publication of Tiki documentation, which still provides a good overview and information on many features.
- dev.tiki.org — Search the Tiki developers site.
- irc.tiki.org — Developers and other users can often be found on IRC chat, but activity varies according to time of day, etc., so please be patient if you ask a question.
