I can't find them from the website because it redirects to google code which shows a shifted page instead.

Oh, thanks for the info!

I have updated all links to link to
https://github.com/vimperator/vimperator-labs/wiki

Unfortunately, that wiki is empty yet, and after I checked the "repository
has moved" in google code, I can't seem to access the old Wiki/FAQ at all
anymore :(
However, probably we should redo most of the content anyway, as I am sure
the old one was often from Vimperator 1.x times and not updated anymore.

The 2 real important pages (Difference Pentadactyl/Vimperator and
Vimperator3.x Design Guidelines would be really helpful, though). Let's see
if I can recover them somehow.

Otherwise I'd suggest someone with a good vision on a good Wiki structure
should start a new Wiki page on the Github.

Best regards,
Martin

Alright, well I just started using it so I'm not in a position to help out with this. Should probably leave the issue open until we have something passable anyway.

@spaghetti- actually, you are in a great position to help out. Having a beginner's perspective is very useful.
Would be great if you write something up like a Beginner's Guide to Vimperator.

Hey, I am interested in getting involved with cleaning up the documentation if you would like some assistance. But, the actual reason I am here is, to read the documentation on how plugins work.

@gkatsev ive been thinking on how to go around writing a beginners guide but the thing is, I've been a long time vim user so using vimperator hasn't really been that hard on me. i suppose ill find things eventually though

@wobbol sure, I can't help with the plugins but lets see about writing a beginners guide as mentioned above.

I am relativity new to vim and vimperaptor (exposed to it for ~2 years) and
recently decided to go mouseless so I may have some insight as to how the
new user guide aught to be constructed? I guess?

I feel like a list of difficulties that I am working through would be
helpful?
mabie a list of were to find information on how to solve them later?

maxauthority , gkatsev if you'll remember the exact link to the project on the google code page then you can try the wayback machine to get back the important bits of wiki , etc

Well yeah, but most content there was old anyway, and I think building a
new FAQ or WIki from scratch is probably a better idea.

I had a long typed up pretty comment but gvim ate it when I accidentally navigated away from the page and did a :wq

Ill just post some short and sweet(I think) markdown in my git sometime and link it here.

What happened to these efforts to expand the wiki? I just arrived, looking for information on how I can customize with a .vimperatorrc, and there is no explanation on it. I am willing to contribute any thing I find, but wonder what the current climate is.

Well, still the same as before.
https://github.com/vimperator/vimperator-labs/wiki is just waiting for some
(good) content :)
I guess making sub pages "FAQ" "Tutorial" etc. make a good start but it
requires someone with dedication so it does end up with great content and
not some random notes which don't help the end user anything.

For now, looking through the :help pages within Vimperator are probably the
best for newbies (although it certainly has a steep learning curve).
