Docs You Can Use

I’ve talked with so many PHP programmers who have taught themselves PHP using a book, code samples, and by talking to others on forums. Coming from other languages, they are used to documentation that is scattered, confusing, and only written for people who already know how to do everything.

The documentation is very readable, organized, searchable and useful, and here is a quick overview to help you get the most out of it. –by Elizabeth Tucker Long

Drupal Corner: Creating Integrated Modules for Drupal – Part 4

This module facilitates a path visibility system that was introduced in the July column. –by Adrian Webb
