Seek And You Shall Find—Global Documentation Search

 

 

A significant pain point for readers who come to the TYPO3 documentation, has been the challenge of finding what they’re looking for. A dedicated working group has implemented a new global search mechanism. It’s now in beta and we’re looking for community members to help put it through its paces. 

The global search is part of our broader initiative to make our documentation shine.

Background

The TYPO3 official documentation has grown organically over time, enjoying a wealth of contributions from community members and dedicated work from the Documentation Team.

Docs.typo3.org is a hub for not only official documentation (tutorials, manuals, guides, references, Core manuals), but also community extensions. This situation is unique in the market, and brings its own set of challenges.

The nature of the documentation is that it is published separately—each manual is separate. You can search within them, but not across them.
