Thanks for everyone’s input and suggestions to improve the documentation for MT5. Here’s a list of places to find updated and brand-new documentation:
- MT5 Documentation Index - an index listing all pages which are tagged Updated for MT5, New in MT5, or Bug in MT5
- Recently Updated Documentation
One highlight…. Creating themes for MT5 - this was requested by lots of people in the community and should get you started. Our goal is to create a few sample themes, and place them in a GitHub repository.
The documentation for MT5 is being initially created by the Japanese Movable Type team as they are leading development of MT5. We’re working with a translator to convert to English and then going through each document to clean it up, reformat it, test it, and add more examples. We’ve been notifying the Japanese team whenever we have significantly changed the document so that they can translate it back to Japanese.
Next up is the process of converting the documentation site itself to a more topic-based structure, rather than the current organization (by user-type).
We’re converting pages that list tags in Movable Type to index templates with loops to output pages: by folder, tag, etc. This will ensure that listings are always up-to-date.
As we make improvements and adjustments to the templates, pages and styles, please let us know if you have any requests or suggestions.
