We all know how critically important the WordPress.org Codex is. Countless laborious hours have gone into making it the de-facto resource for all things WordPress.org related. It serves as an online encyclopedia of WordPress functions, actions, best practices, and examples on how extend WordPress far beyond its initial reach.

You may not know it but we’ve had a codex here at BuddyPress.org since the early days. It’s mostly made life really difficult and forced everyone into the forums or to other sites for help.

Today, I’m really happy to report that the core team has spent some time this weekend to finally refresh the BuddyPress Codex.

The BuddyPress Codex is a WordPress installation where everyone is an editor. You are free to contribute your knowledge into it exactly the way a traditional Wiki works, all using WordPress pages and a few custom taxonomies specific to the BuddyPress project.

In addition, we’ve added a few small social integrations to show off who created and edited each page, and we’re keeping track of all those edits through the BuddyPress Activity component so you can show off your contributions back to the community.

We really think you’ll like the changes, and hope you’ll let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
