Discussion topic for the phpBB Wiki Announcement.
Hi,

No, not a wiki product by the phpBB Group. ;) I am pleased to announce the addition of a wiki for syndicating code documentation and content at http://wiki.phpbb.com/.

This wiki is a place where you can share your experience with the codebase of phpBB3. Anything related to code documentation, modding/styling tutorials can be added there. Please note that we currently only allow registered users to edit/add pages.

What it is not

The wiki is not meant to be a general documentation of how to use phpBB3. It doesn't describe how to register, post new topics, etc. - this can still be found within our user documentation.

The MOD Documentation available at phpbb.com will be slowly moved to the wiki over the next weeks.

It looks like the team is making it a habit of posting announcement discussion topics, so if there is something major, chances are a discussion topic will be posted shortly. :P

Yes... i also think this will be a feature in 3.2, to let discussion topics be posted with announcements. After all, we want to discuss the bigger changes. :)

Should we have to create a new account there or?

Yes, accounts are separate from phpbb.com.

Quite illogical IMO.

I believe this is because *.phpbb.com are not hosted on the same server as phpbb.com.

Hi,

This is a great news :) Thank you.

I saw there were an other langage available (deutsch, in this case). Do you plan to offer the wiki in other languages in the near future or not?

I believe it's primarily a case of whether or not users choose to translate it ;) As you can see, it's fairly easy to have multiple languages on a Wiki, the only issue is the content tends to not reflect each other.

Tomorrow, i will look into the possibility of using this extension to use the phpbb.com userbase for logins to the wiki. It may work, or it does not work. But it will pose problems for those using usernames not allowed within the wiki.
