I have too many questions, I can't find the answer from your docs

Hello, Jahia mates,

Now i have to use jahia to build a website because my boss want to use jahia.

But there are too many questions i can't find the answer from your docs.

Such as how to create a blank page, how to edit the modules and templates that jahia provides, and how to connect a database, use that database as a datasource?

Yeah, i know how to drug and drop a content item to a page, and add or delete a content, but how to create a totally  blank page, nothing on it?

How? How? How?

I don't know why you don't provide a blank page, very strange, All editors such as notepad, word, vim, gedit can create a blank doc or page easily.

All of your docs are lack of samples that suits to beginners.

Could you give me some detailed samples?

And where are the external data source APIs?

Thanks.

Regards

Lion

Hello,

Sorry you couldn't find what you needed in our documentation.

I'm not sure what you mean by "a blank page"? Jahia is not a text editor like vim and gedit, it's a CMS so you use page templates to accelerate your page creations, you don't have to manually write the HTML code. The basic structure of your pages (header, footer, side menu etc.) is defined in a template sets that you can reuse on every pages, jsut adding content.

The database connection is created during the installation, did you not succeed to do that?

And to edit modules and templates, just download the source code from the Studio and you can start working with them.

Here is a video that shows you the editor capabilities: http://www.jahia.com/fr/home/resources/users-documentation/video-for-functional-editor.html

Sme very interesting videos about Studio and modules development here: http://www.jahia.com/fr/ressources/videos?N-video-list=eJzLskpJTUsszSlxTixJTc8vqlRWVjbSL84sSS3WL64sLknNBbH1kyGymUDRssyU1Hz9rMSMzERdc93iktKUzHygJmMDUzMLI4MYKzdHZ9eQGHRjrYxiIKbGIBkbg2RuDMTgGIjJMbrmMVCzAYQVOnY

Do not hesitate to contact us if you'd like to schedule a demo and/or a training.

Best regards,

Guillaume
