Welcome to the Codex Community Portal. This is the right place to start if you are wondering what the Codex is, and how to help with the documentation project of WordPress. No help is too small. Your effort counts!

Various pages of interest are available here to jumpstart your life as a WP doc volunteer.

What is Codex after all?

Codex is a wiki used to document WordPress. Visit About Codex to know more about what the Codex is, and what its goals are.

How can I Contribute to Codex?

Pay a visit to How to Contribute to start contributing to the WordPress documentation effort.

What can I Contribute to WordPress in general?

Contributing to WordPress guides you through the things you can do, besides writing documentation, to contribute to the project at large.

Are there any Guidelines?

Sure there are. Please read the Codex Guidelines before you start contributing.

Who's in Charge?

The Codex Effort is guided by its 24 Admins. The Task List identifies who is working on what projects and offers a list of things that need to be done on the Codex, too. Leave a message on the User Talk page of any of the admins if you need help, or direction. You can also join the wp-docs mailing list and send a message to the list in case you have any questions. The admins are benevolent, and will help and mentor you, if you need that.

If you need to contact anyone within the WordPress Administration, visit their WordPress Contact page.
