Documentation Milestone Reached

Company Blogs January 23, 2008 By Richard Sezov Staff

First of all, a belated Happy New Year! This is my first blog post in the new year (and in the new theme), and I'm excited about what I have to report.

Last night I finally finished the first draft of the Liferay Administrator's Guide. It's a bit pared down from the outline that's published out on the wiki, but that was done in order to get the book out as quickly as possible. For the second edition, I will be fleshing it out into the complete outline. The portions I've skipped documenting have to do with the user interface of the portlets, which is not generally something we get a ton of questions about. Nonetheless, it is important to document them, and that will be done after the first version of the Guide.

Right now it's coming in at 181 pages. I've spent the day (and probably will spend most of my time this week) going back through and editing. Once this is done I'm planning on sending it out internally for review. But we're getting real close now.

After the editing and reviewing is done we'll make the document available, and then it will be on to a dual task of updating it for the 4.4 release and finishing up the Liferay Developer's Guide. So there's still a lot of work to do, but we're definitely getting there!
