I have been programming for some time now, but I'm new to Silverstripe. And I really love it, so to get going I started working on a proper ContactForm (no userform), creating my own tutorial along the way. I'm not finished and it may be a while yet, but as I'm already writing down all my findings, I was wondering if this could be of use to others in the community and what would be the proper way to go about sharing. My approach might not always be the correct one, and I wouldn't want to go around spreading all kinds of errors, so please advice?
Welcome to Silverstripe !
Tutorials are always a good idea !
You can create a recipe in the Wiki ... Don't worry about the mistakes, you can always go back and edit your write-up later. ;-)
Thanks! Could you explain to me how this works? Where do I go? Anything special I should do (besides register)? I would have thought that a recipe is a smallish example of some specific idea/problem. What I am doing now is somewhat extensive, since I'm trying to grasp every single step of it - could make one very long wike-page. Does that still count as a recipe?
Well, you could post a recipe in the Wiki for reviewing / editing .... Once finished , maybe it can be included in the "official tutorials" ?
OK, I'll try for that. When I'm ready that is - still some things to tackle:-) )
So I created this tutorial wiki type story about my ContactPage learning project. It's somewhat detailed I'm afraid. There's lots more to do, but you're very welcome to it and I'm interested to hear any comments, corrections and improvements you might have (this wiki has no comments option just yet, so it'd have to be here for now)...
Awesome job !
I'm sure this will help a lot of new users ! Make sure to point the core-devs to your tutorial as well, because it seems more extensive than the current tutorial.... ;)
Oh , and why not post it in the silverstripe wiki ?
I don't know how to 'point the core developers' to anything though :-) How do I go about that?
