Important Note edit

This manual has not had any content updates in over a year. However, it inspired a member of the Mambo community to create a wiki and continue the concept of providing a collaborative user and developer manual for Mambo. This manual is now part of the Mambo CMS project and contains extensive documentation to help both users and developers alike.

You can go to the Mambo Manual here.

Registration is, of course, free and everyone is encouraged to contribute.
