Comments for Documentation

  • Comments for Documentation
  • I would like to suggest adding the ability to comment or at a minimum provide feedback on the documentation to the Sitefinity site.

    One of the biggest challenges I face as a Sitefinity developer is the poor state of documentation. Adding comment or at a minimum send feedback functionality to the page would give Telerik the feedback it needs to improve the documentation where it is needed most.

    The example that comes to mind for me regarding the inadequate documentation is on the Custom Layout Widgets page.

    Specifically the lack of any documentation stating that adding class="sf_colsIn"  is the key to making your custom layout work. Even worse sf_colsIn has to be the first class in the list or the custom layout will work in edit mode but not when the page is on the front-end.

    Documentation that provides an example with no explanation or background on to why the example works is unacceptable. If there were the ability to add a comment, i would happily add it for you so that other developers would not have to waste the hours this Sitefinity quirk has cost my team.
