Not a developer? Go to


More Docs Than A Hospital

By Anil Dash
Posted August 30, 2007.

There's a whole pile of new and updated documentation for MT4 that we've been working on updating, based specifically on the requests we've gotten from the community and from developers. Some highlights:

Do you lean more towards the design side of things than the developer side? No problem. You'll want to check out:
We'll of course be continuing to update the documentation based on your feedback, and in collaboration with the whole community. And of course the growing MT4 wiki is a hub of idea-sharing as well. We encourage you to read up on all the new docs, and feel free to suggest the ideas you'd like to see covered in the documentation next -- they may well already be under way!

How about documenting some of the new stuff such as folders, assets and examples of what can be done with it. I remember Byrne (I think it was) who said something along the lines of the Vox feature of This asset also used in…. should be possible now. Mostly examples are needed badly. Personally I’m fighting the folders right now and are suspecting that what I want to do isn’t possible :(

I second Sara. Examples would be nice. Also, what is the difference between a “page” and an “entry.” Right now they seem to be the same though I think I know how to distinguish the two.

Not to mention the ratings framework (EntryScore etc). I see lots and lots of people asking but no one seems to know what to do with all those tags. Again working example would be nice.

It would help if there were screenshots to go with the examples. I’m one of those visual folks who have a hard time picturing what it’s supposd to look like when the codes are run.

Know what’d be really awesome? If you linked to any of this documentation from Cuz you don’t. Anywhere.

Also, you probably want to remove all the references to “beta”.

Jay it IS linked, though not very obvious at all. On the top right hand side is a smallish link called support. Follow that and you’ll find the stuff.

Where could we find these documentations? I would be interesting to read them.

Wow that’s a bunch of documents here for sure. However I enjoyed reading that new MT4 Developer’s Guide introduction. Thanks for that! By the way those comment templates were awesome too.
