We definitely have to do more in our documentation area considering the functionality descriptions. All auction-software project have hugh sites for that and our system is getting much better than theirs - but we just suck on documentation. They charge from 400-800 €$ for their system, we dont take a cent and nobody is willing to spend some time on that. This is sad.

I have asked multiple times for help on those administrative things.
I will have a documentation for next version, but if I have to do it completely alone next version WILL COST. I am just gonna charge 20€/$ or something per download paying myself for that whole documentation and administration part.


Add: This is not a job for the existing staff. They are doing a great job and I really appreciate what they are doing.
Love you guys. Wink

VERY nice! Very Happy

I didn't check, but let's make sure those are linking from all the menus. Is the menu site-wide now? Anyway, might I suggest some links up there /\ in the menu bar as well, perhaps a third line. All the new pages are titled Project Homepage, should they be? Off topic, I'd like to see a menu or link somewhere to the admin/mod stuff, like the poll page and all that stuff.

When I get around to sorting out the bug forum, should I use the CVS id numbers in the bug numbers, or would that get too confusing in the bug forum?

I would LOVE to start adding to the documentation. Once I get the bug forum sorted out, I'll start posting info in there. That's probably a bit off yet, I still need to find time to sort out the bug forum. Confused

Also, might I suggest a general announcement for this? Many people don't ever bother with the community forum. I am certain that NO ONE wants to see this turned into a pay project, and given our user base, and the number of talented coders we have running around, I am sure we should be able to come up with a small group of people who would be willing to donate a bit of time to developing documentation.

I think part of that, would be defining what documentation you want to see EXACTLY. If I were able to start on it today, I would go through the forum from top to bottom, extracing any and all useful information, and molding that into different documents in the various sections that you have set up. Perhaps snag my post on pics from phpbb and make that a document, while adding the bits concerning the way phpbb-auction uses pics. Perhaps some of the other phpbb related items that we get asked about over and over.

Other than that, I would really have no clue what documentation you would like to see. Once we have some people put together to throw in a hand, we'll need a list of documentation you would like to see. Wink

Crogon, you know, I said its not your job, but if you want to put some effort on it, i wont hold you back. Laughing

So what we need is a detailed description about what the system can do (on users front and on ACP).
Example:
http://www.phpauction.org/xl.php
or
http://www.phpauction.org/manuals.php

KidneyBoy has started on that, but dont know where he stands.

Than some how tos (which are version independent)
How to create another language for the auction
How to use a different template
How does the paypal-system work
What is moneybooker
How will new ideas become implemented into the new version
What does GPL means for this software

I am working on a redesign of the whole page to make it more professional. The header up there will probably disapear. I created the development-section, download-section and documentation-section, which have to become more integrated to the whole site. Community-section is still missing (as we dont have a community manager as i wanted).
I am quite happy about the forum-structure. Seems to work out this way. We need a different way to promote patches.
Well, we just have to look on other projects and get inspired about what is still missing.

Thanks for the effort.

I would be more than willing to jump on board and help you with anything i can.

I feel that maybe i am not advanced enough to do so.

If there is anything you think i can do i will be more than happy to donate time to helping document anything i can.

Or do anything else. I enjoy the use of your system and have ideas and requests for MOD so i would be happy to donate time in return for the free use of the feature and mods.

Just say what i can do.

Hi FR,

I am not educated enough to help with PHP (eventhough I wish and want to). However, I am sooo grateful for this script and the modules also. I would like to help too, but I don't know how or where you would need my help.

Let me know and I will try my best to help in any way that I can.

Sandy

What still needs to be done? Where can I help?

I'm great at documenting things but my knowledge of php is minimal.

i received 1000 of messages of people wanting to document, but nobody documented anything so far. Wink

I started a small docu in the documentation area (features), but we still dont have some admins manual.
