The Joomla Documentation Wiki is a living Web site for help documentation, tutorials, walkthroughs, and other helpful resources. You can help it grow by writing about anything you think might help other users, novice or expert. If you're not sure where to start, try looking in theWiki Cookie Jar to see a list of things we need help with.
Joomla is translated into many world languages by members of the community. If you language isn't available, you can translate documentation, tutorials or even Joomla itself into your language. Visit our simple guidelines page to get started.
One of Joomla's strengths is its extensibility and Joomla extensions provide users with specialized functionality. The Joomla Extensions Directory is a great place to get and overview of the types of extensions developers are writing. You can take an existing GPL extension and update it for the latest version of Joomla, fix bugs, or create a totally new component with cutting edge technology. The possibilities are limitless. See how you can get started.
If you're a designer and you don't know programming, you can design your own templates. Creating a slick template is easy and can be done in a simple text editor or Adobe DreamWeaver.
We are always looking for more people to test patches, find and fix bugs, and help clarify issue reports on our bug tracker. Visit the issue tracker to help out. If you have programming skills, we recommend you inquire about joining the Joomla Bug Squad.
