Guide for Textpattern authors / end-users

In some recent projects where I’ve used Textpattern on projects for clients it seems they would like to have a document that a complete novice can use to allow them to use the Textpattern system.

So I’ve created a basic end-user manual for them – basically a guide for authors and other non-technical end-users of the Textpattern system.

I’d like to develop it over time into a comprehensive end-user manual to all the features available, but I’d be interested in feedback on it as it stands now. Email me at

Textpattern end-user manual v1.2 – MS Word – 372Kb
Textpattern end-user manual v1.2 – Adobe PDF – 472Kb

Perfect for beginners, its easy for folks just starting out to get into the wrong area in Textpattern. This would have helped me when I first started – before I erased my first page template.
I didn’t think the article was that just described a WYSIWYG editor, not a beginner’s manual for using text pattern. I thought it would be a “basic end-user manual” for more than just a single plugin. Am I wrong?
The article is a bit simplistic unless you are looking for a resource on purely creating content, and have little understanding on site structure, layout, etc.

If you’d like to write a comprehensive article on how you built your site, I think you’d have an award winner!
