[resolved] How do I create a page that looks like "Getting_Started_with_WordPress" (5 posts)

    Is this hand coded or generated?

    also, how can I create an FAQ? Or is that hand done as well?

    Familiarize yourself with the basics and it will start to make some sense after a while.


    Things that might peak your interest from the start may be lists, headings and css - but it's all good.

    oooh K.

    So, should take it from your reply that the FAQ and the TOC on the wordpress site is hand coded?

    I can only draw that conclusion since you informed me that I should "start with the basics".

    It took me a few moments to realize you meant HTML basics not WP basics.

    OK then. Well, thanks for the round about answer. A simple "it's hand coded" would have been sufficient for me or the next guy who has the same question.


    FYI: I've been writing HTML since '92 so I won't take your answer personally.

    No offense intended. I was in fact referring to html and css . The WordPress forum is based on bbpress, by the way ( I think I also saw some MediaWiki in there as well ). I suppose I assumed (incorrectly) that taking a peek at the source code on those pages would have led to some fast answers for you. I plainly misunderstood what you were after. Sorry 'bout that, Walter!

    Best wishes.


    'yep. I just took another look. The codex appears to be built on MediaWiki, if that adds any value to the info.

    OK, I see now.

    I created a login at 'codex'... now I understand the PS on your last post.

    It never occurred to me that the DOCS area was a wiki, and I didn't notice the LOGIN link on the side of the page.

    So the main wordpress site is built on wordpress, but the docs section is built on MediaWiki with a theme that matches wordpress theme.


    Can I assume that the FORUMS are built on some forum platform as well?

    I was hoping to get off a wiki for my site and the documentation I'm creating.

    Oh well. Thx
