We need to continue our work on CP Documentation
The next important steps is recreating the doc we currently use in CP Admin (help tabs and the like) and links to (old) WP doc (be it codex or new manual doc)
This is a large work, it mainly consists of:
- Draft up a CP version of the respective DOC (this can start with a copy paste but should then be carefully edited, rewritten and enhanced where needed)
- Post it on our own DOC
- When done, we ask James or else to update the redirects
What I am looking for specifically here in this post, are people who can invest time into this work.
Once someone starts on a doc, it should ideally be finished by the same person, within a reasonable time.
By my estimation, it takes somewhere between an hour up to maybe 5 hours to rewrite each doc. Perhaps more, sometimes less.
Depending on how much content and links it has, how much reference it has to things we do not use in CP, etc, it will be quite some work or just a quick swapping of images and changing names etc.
What we do not want is a pure copy paste. Each DOC must be in its final result a real valuable enhancement, if that is not possible, we can just keep linking to existing WP Docs.
The Editors/Authors of said new DOCs will not gain access to the DOC website.
We will work on either local documents or Google Docs (choose what you prefer).
The doc will get revised prior to publication and then published in name of the CP organisation.
Of course we will attribute work done, by creating a list of “Documentation Contributors” on the very Doc website, and if @wadestriebel can help me set this up, the contributor gains a specific badge in this forum. That would be really nice
What kind of help is required/What skills are required
- General Documentation writing experience is welcome but not a must.
- Good command of English Language should
- Of course, thorough understanding of how CP works
- Proofreader ability, SEO and Semantics experts are welcome as well, helps extremely to let another pair of eyes review what one wrote/review semantics/etc etc
Please inbox me directly on either Slack or this forum or just add your availability to the post here, if you are into helping with this. We can then orchestrate the rewrites with each of the volunteers.
I set up the main project management screen on Notion - anyone with an email and internet access should be able to access, comment and edit that:
Suggestions as of how to better approach this, etc are warmly welcome. However the priority scope here is to get people who are willing to, and have the time to perform the work required in order to get our DOC enhanced and the CP Admin links pointing to our own stuff, which we control.
