    How Do I Delete My Account?

    Why is the documentation so bad?


    I'm new to Umbraco and even though I've learned alot in short time I still need to learn alot more. To do that I use (in some extent) the Umbraco Developer Documentation. What bugs me is that the documentation lacks alot of information. I've found that often some methods are excluded in the documentation. For example: The MembershipHelper documentation. It doesn't include the method GetCurrentMember and god knows what more.

    (There's a method called GetCurrentMemberProfileModel(). But what is a profile model and how do I use it?)

    This really bugs me out and is there anyone that knows why it is this way? Am I missing something?

    I've found the membership documentation a bit confusing myself as the API has changed over the last few years.

    Re: documentation in general, here's a few Umbraco (not membership only) resources you may be interested in:

    To answer your original question, open source software moves really fast and documentation normally lags vs enterprise software (SharePoint) that releases slowly and has tons more resources at release time.

    Umbraco does require a commitment, but I've found it's worth the investment.
