Releasing the new EPiServer User Guide online

By releasing the first online “version” of the EPiServer User Guide, we have merged the user guides for all EPiServer products – CMS, Commerce and add-ons – into one single user guide. As an editor, marketer or system administrator, you can now find all information in one place, but it also serves to better support a platform approach with a more unified user experience. The different parts of the platform are indicated using a color code (see image).

The new user guide will be available on EPiServer World as well as from the EPiServer user interface. The new page on EPiServer World has a listing of the latest version and recent versions.

The first public release is named “14-1”, and contains new features added to the 7.5 platform up until Update 37 (see image). The plan is to release an updated user guide on a quarterly basis to start with in a “continuous release” fashion, where each release contains the latest updates for EPiServer CMS, Commerce and add-ons.

Later on we aim to provide more examples of user scenarios to better illustrate the use of EPiServer products.

We hope you will like it, and that you think the information is easy to find. Welcome with feedback to us.

User guides in print format will still be available for each individual product like before.

I'd like to contribute further by saying you should remove the need for a separate heading and text for comments. I just wanted to say "Great work!" - and that's it. :)

The PDF links refered to at http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/user-guides/ is not available. I get a login prompt?

Looking into this right now, hope to be solved soon.

At http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Manuals/ when you click on an old (pre-v7) manual for either CMS, Commerce, Relate etc, most pages don't have a download link to the actual PDF file. (e.g. http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Manuals/EPiServer-CMS/Administrator-Manuals---EPiServer-CMS-6-R2-print/) I need one of those, can you fix the download links?

We are currently working to fix this as well as the links requiring log in. @arild - let me know which manuals you need and I can send them to you.

Seems the PDF links for the latest version are working now!
