Welcome to Liferay's official documentation project, the home of Liferay Developer Network articles. All articles are written in Markdown, making them easy to write and read. Approved articles are uploaded to the Liferay Developer Network (LDN) and converted automatically to HTML. In this project, you can contribute new articles, improve existing articles, or fix documentation bugs. To produce documentation that is comprehensive and stylistically consistent, the liferay-docs project provides writing guidelines, standards & customizations, and a tutorial template.
You'll learn how quickly to submit a new article and its images next.
