Manual: Administrating the Domino Blog Template (incomplete)

Today I have started to write down a manual which will contain as much information as possible to administrate and give support on the blog template provided by IBM.

In pieces I will post the manual here on this site.

The reason why I started writing a manual myself is that:

  • Documentation provided by IBM is divided over several sources (Wiki, Help.nsf, blogs)
  • Available documentation does not fully covering the complete aspect of what is in the template.
  • Hereby is giving support on the template to end-users (people who write posts and manage the application) too time-consuming and therefor inefficient.

Well you can see the manual as a protest to IBM’s lack of giving full end-user suppport on the templates they create or have created. I am also tired of hearing such complaints from others and complaining about it, since I do not have the feeling things will change at I.

(Lotus knows it’s a dirty job so someone else has got to do it)

Since I do not know all the ins and outs of the template so the manual surely will contain some blank entries and not cover the whole spectrum of managing the blog template.

With your help maybe someday we will get there.

    I have years of notes and documentation from DominoBlog’s early days 10 years ago. These are all PDF’s of Steve early blogging about the features and how they work. Contact me offline for details.
