WordPress Documentation

As anyone who has ever used the web, you won’t find it surprising to hear that maintaining good documentation is difficult. For those of you who have known me for a long time (back in 2011?), you may remember that I had set up a site that had good WordPress documentation with links to articles and videos.

Don’t bother looking for a link, because you won’t find one. I simply can’t keep it up to date and won’t be maintaining that site. WordPress is evolving so rapidly, keeping up good documentation is very challenging. The same is true for all sorts of software tools, apps and anything online.

I remember has a teenager being told that purchasing a new car was a waste of money, since as soon as you drive it out of the lot, it depreciated. I’m starting to see the web in the same way. As soon as you start using a tool, something on the net changes and the documentation is no longer accurate. Just like purchasing cars, I think that’s something we have to accept.

Kudos to anyone who maintains docs. Your job is not an easy one.
