Many moons ago, I worked on Drupal and WordPress as an admin and occasional web dev.

What I noticed was a consistent manner documentation was structured.

We adhere to this content strategy:

  1. Quality matters – prerequisites, bill of materials, requirements, etc.
  2. What it is – What this particular task/topic/command/project is
  3. How it works – details about how it works
  4. Instruction set – So you can make it work
  5. Next steps – roll your own variation to our sample
  6. Resources – links
