Community Support

Here are the steps you should follow:

  • Check the documentation for the project you wish to use. If you don't find the information you're looking for there try Searching on this wiki and check the FAQ.
  • Search the mailing list archives.
  • If you still haven't found the answer, post a question on the Mailing Lists or Forums. Please bear in mind that people on the list are people who are contributing to XWiki in their own time. Also you'll find people are more likely and prompt to answer your questions if you yourself participate and answer other's questions over time. This is a participation ecosystem.
  • You can also consider sending a message on the IRC Channel. However we recommend using the mailing lists in most cases since the IRC channel is used mostly by developers to coordinate XWiki development and mailing lists allow everyone to answer in its own time and without pressure.

Note that the XWiki Developers only officially supports the last 2 versions of XWiki Projects (the last stable version and the version in development). The rationale for this is:

  • We don't want to over-burden the developers to have to support more than 2 development branches. Each branch slows down the overall XWiki development.
  • This is open source software and free and we consider free users can contribute back by helping us test the newest versions by upgrading. If they want support for their older version in production they have the possibility to ask companies for professional support.

As a consequence:

  • You won't find documentation for old versions on this web site
  • You won't find maintained source code for old versions (tagged source can be found but not maintained branches)
  • People on the community lists may ask you to upgrade to a newer version when you discover an issue that is fixed in a newer version than the one you're using

Once you have found the answer, please consider adding an entry in the FAQ or updating an existing document on this wiki. This way others will later benefit from that knowledge like you're benefiting from other people's knowledge while browsing this site.

If you're interested in helping yourself please check all the ways you can contribute.
