1 Format the guide
The best way for you to learn how to create a guide is to look at how a guide is structured. We are currently using the docrails project and as such all of the guides are written in textile.
A good example of how a guide can be structured is the ‘Getting Started With Refinery’ guide which you can see here.
You should be able to match the sections of the raw textile guide with the live guide to see how each aspect works.
2 Submitting the guide
- Login to http://github.com
- Go to http://github.com/refinery/refinerycms
- If you have a fork of refinerycms already, delete it (if you’re not going to lose work. This makes it much easier for us to integrate your changes back in)
- Click on “fork” to make a fresh new fork on your own account.
Next make your changes or new guide in the ‘doc/guides’ folder.
Now to go http://github.com/refinery/refinerycms and click “Pull Request”.
After we review it, we’ll merge it into the master refinerycms repository, and the changes will be up on http://refinerycms.com/guides within a few seconds.

The majority of Refinery CMS remains undocumented as development happens quickly. We’d appreciate it very much if you submitted a new guide or updated old ones. Here are some reasons for doing so:
