Creating new pages in the Drupal handbooks

Everyone in the Drupal community is invited to submit new pages in on-line documentation.
  • Posting external links to your website in the on-line documentation is frowned upon. We encourage people to contribute back to the handbooks instead of taking reader attention away. External links should only be added as a reference.
  • Review the Structure Guide and Style Guide before you start.
  • If you want your new page reviewed for location or content after adding it, submit an issue with status "needs review."
  • Rough drafts of new pages or edited pages which are not production ready -- i.e., need feedback and/or additional development -- should first be submitted as an issue to the Documentation project as an HTML or text attachment.
  • Finally, make sure you have enabled the personal contact form in your user account in case someone wishes to contact you about your contribution.
Restricted actions: The site maintainer role is required to delete handbook pages, to remove comments (once they have been incorporated into a handbook page), to unpublish and publish pages, and to edit certain pages. Submit an issue if you need any of these tasks done.
