  1. I've made the Customization Guide a Wiki page

    http://themeshaper.com/thematic/guide/

    anyone interested in helping out with documentation can Register as a Wiki Editor.

  2. a question: I had already translated the page in Italian. Could you add links to the translated page, in every available language?

  3. Ian, it says that that Wiki (blog) is closed for registration. I would like to make a contribution to this, because it is really an answer, and great. I'd like to see the docs reflect that greatness more!

    Thanks,
    Chris

  4. Is there a future for the guide as an open wiki. If so how to get registered to edit the wiki (registration is closed as of this posting). Is there a protocol for contribution and editing?

    I ran across a typo in some code in there yesterday that could use correcting before someone else falls into the same trap i did. Also the is plenty helpful code coming out in the forums that could stand to be brought over to the guide.

    You're probably swamped, I'd be willing to help with the guide in some capacity.

    Thanks for all your hard work - Gene

  5. Again, pleese, it would be so good if you could open up the wiki, or find another way to help enable the community around this to provide more of a documentation. This is a GREAT framework, and I am willing to help it thrive.

    Thanks!

    Great news Ian!

    Good documentation along with strong community support and an effective Forum is one of the keys to successful open-source projects like Thematic.

    Given the level of interest in Thematic it would seem to make a lot of sense to open the Guide to the community of people interested in using Thematic.

    At the same time it looks to me like some of the workload in this Forum could be reduced (or at least changed) by improving documentation via the Wiki.

    Hi fellows,

    m new to php and wordpress. m trying to understand what apply_filter() actually do. and what's the difference b/w apply_filters() and add_filters().

    Thanks in advance.

  11. here's my explanation of hooks and filters:
    http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/need-help-understanding-actions-vs-filters-and-changing-post-meta-and-utility#post-22638

    apply_filter sort of creates the "hook" where you add/use filters. in a child theme there is little point in ever using apply_filter, you'll only really be using add_filters. apply_filter is the signal in WP or in Thematic that you can change/filter a value.

    when you add a function w/ add_filter ... you tell apply_filter() to run that function to modify the value of a variable

  12. On the Guide homepage, the link 'How to use the WP Wiki Plugin' under 'Some Useful Links' is broken.
