Thanks a lot for your quick reply - I highly appreciate it. Lets make the uncertain points clear:
1. I am a donor (my first donation BEFORE I even downloaded anything)
2. I have newest version of Joomla and Joom!Fish 2.0 Beta.
Sorry if I insulted you, that was not my intentions. I am a teacher in computers applications and have been for last 15 years, my students are from 20 to 35 y.o. So having at all times 20 multinational students in front of me all day every day asking questions which to me is no need to ask......maight made me seing things differently.
What I meant was that for someone not fluent in PHP or SQL there is missing this introduction to the program. A nice 6 - 8 pages PDF which takes an idiot through the process of having a Joomla! site with some data and step by step taking the person through the process of making small menu in 2 or 3 languages as well as few articles linked to those menues. That would take the application to the "user friendly" state which is missing now.
You correctly stated that I am the first person to bring this clearly up. But look at the forum: people are even asking how they can replace the drop-down language menu with flags or letters. Do you think that technical answer will do the job of getting those people happy? I can see that this program could be made very user friendly if there would just be "Getting started" manual with some samples and exercises. And the time saved...........!
After writing my earlier comments, I installed once again Joomla with data and then Joom!Fish 2. Without using any of the million pages I have print outs of from forums or elsewhere I turned that page into 3 language website, starting on translating the top menu and then few articles. And it works! So I am on it........finally. But it took me 10 days of just getting there instead of 1 day with this friendly PDF document I am talking about. I maight write one myself and give it to you when I know a little more
. The problem is that there is many documents around but none of them are really dealing with the basics or the whole picture, none of them from A through Z. And the majority of people dont know PHP and just get sick when they have such a code in front of them.
Everything is complex when you dont know anything about it. Nothing is complex when you have the basic knowledge.
As you mention the Manual for 1.8 = I have been trying to find it for days without success. Yesterday I downloaded a new pdf document "test it" I think you called it but Adobe can not open it. So no wonder I was a little
