Thanks for the suggestion, Peter. I have now raised this as an Issue in GitHub.

I also wanted to explore contributing to the Wiki, but I am not able to find a Wiki for the DNN Community repository, nor the FAQ module, in GitHub. Any suggestions?

Hi Thomas,

Thank your for your reply. The Wiki was not enabled in the FAQ repository, but I've changed that. 

As for the general DNNCommunity group: a group does not have a wiki, but there is a repository home (https://github.com/DNNCommunity/home) that is intended as an introduction repo which can hold things like general documentation.

AFAICS, the FAQ wiki is now open for everyone to edit (or cloned for that matter), the home repository is a normal repo, that can be forked, cloned and used to create pull requests...

Thanks, Peter, for opening up the Wiki for the FAQ project. Also, thanks for pointing out the repository home (https://github.com/DNNCommunity/home) repo. It is quite helpful in explaining things. One suggestion is that the link to it, which is now at the bottom of the second page, be moved to the top of the list, if that is possible.

 I found the "DNN Community Contributors Guide" especially helpful, although it refers to the Active Forums project. I wanted to edit it to change the opening line:

In order to facilitate collaborative development on the Active Forums project,

to

In order to facilitate collaborative development on any DNN project,

 as well as some other references to Active Forums, but I didn't know if you would prefer me to edit in place, or create a fork, make the edits and submit a pull request. I noticed there is a document history feature, so perhaps direct editing would be okay. What is your preference?

 Thanks.

Peter, I was wondering if it would be helpful if I copied the existing help documents for the FAQ module from the DNN help website to the FAQ Wiki as a starting point.

(adding site content > project modules > FAQs)

Perhaps the Wiki is a good place to maintain it. What do you think?

Hi Thomas,

The normal way of working for a repo is to fork (+ clone), do the editing on the clone (or online in the fork) and create pull requests for the original repo, so the changes can be reviewed and merged in the that repo.

The Acitve forums project was probably the example for the contribution guide, and I think the copy/paste should have been followed by an edit/replace, but apparently that did not happen. Feel freemto submit corrections!

As for the order of projects in the DNNCommunity group: AFAIK we cannot influence that. I think that the order is defined by repo activity: the repo with the most recent acivity is listed first. So if you start working on info for the home repo, it will move to the top...

BTW My first name is Ernst Peter. Yep, 2 names in one.

I support your idea. The Wiki is a place were multiple people can contribute.
