Hello,

How can I contribute to the OpenCart documentation?

I notice, for example, that the Search Bar at the top of the default theme only searches the Product Name and tags, not the Description, but the documentation does not say this.

Also, a while back I saw the wrong screenshot used in one part the documentation.

How can I help?

Hi. As a new user, I would suggest to read the most recent forum rules. No OC version posted with the inquiry.
Also, a while back I saw the wrong screenshot used in one part the documentation.
No provided source location on the mentioned subject.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I am using version 3.0.2.0 with the default theme and no modifications.

Sources:
http://docs.opencart.com/en-gb/store-front/
No mention of which fields the Search searches.

Some minor typos here:
http://docs.opencart.com/en-gb/extension/cron/
(Section about cPanel)

This screenshot for Category SEO:
http://docs.opencart.com/en-gb/catalog/category/seo/

is repeated here for Product SEO
http://docs.opencart.com/en-gb/catalog/product/seo/

instead of the actual one for Products.

Regards,

Owen

Well, if you will be around here for a while, you'll get used to all those minor misses,
keeping this Site from beeing, what some Visitors might expect. OC is an ongoing project,
but always short on Staff, and nothing will change, before approved by the Chief in Command.
But he's short on time too, and keeping him from doing his work likely leads to unpleasant
reactions, or no reaction at all.

So, either do it, like iSenseLabs and many others did it in the past, by creating your
own Literature about it:
https://isenselabs.com/books/allbooks
Or then publish it here somewhere, to make sure, that it exists, if you feel, that
it could be helpful for others, Google will then index it for sure, and it will be found.
