CB Documentation Subscription

The CB Team has compiled a detailed document about CB and is offering it as a subscriptions service. To learn what this is, why it is offered and where to get it just read on ... 

In an effort to gain limited funds and continue the open source development of the core CB suite, the CB Team on Joomlapolis is offering a detailed CB reference guide (and some extra goodies - read end of article for extras) on a yearly subscriptions basis.

 

What is this?

  • It is a 185 pages PDF document (Cover) with 99 figures that dive into the many features offered and supported by the CB suite. The document is continuously updated and the subscription members are notified when new versions are deployed.

  • Current version - updated for CB 1.3.1 - has 15 chapters that deal with a broad spectrum of CB related issues.

Why are we doing this?

  • To recoup some basic expenses and to keep the opensource (and free) nature of the core CB suite going.
  • To provide some means (and motivation) for the community to support these efforts
  • To assist "in a hurry" users to get up to speed with CB features
