Because Tiki is a large system, it can sometimes be hard to find your way around the code, or how to accomplish a specific task like "adding a new icon". On this page, you will find links to:
- Code "maps" that can help you orient yourself and navigate a particular part of the code (ex: the mulltilingual functionalities of Tiki).
- Code "howtos" that can help you figure out how to carry out a specific programming task, for example, "adding a new icon" to the UI.
All coders are encourage to write such maps to help others. If you are a newbie to a particular part of the code or particular kind of task and find that they are not covered, you might want to create a map or howto to keep track of your findings and document what you find so others will benefit from it in the future.
