    Default Documentation: User guides, tutorials, and videos

    (This post will be updated over time. At the moment, there's not much documentation out there! My apologies, please check back soon!)

    At the current time, most of the current documentation revolves around the preview. We're going to be working on that over the next while.

    I noticed that earlier the documetation page was under construction. Is there any ETA on if the documents and tutorials on the documetation link are working? When i try to click on any of them, it wont go to any of the pages, it just says done with errors and just leads me right back to the same page.

    Thanks,
    Julie

    The link Xeina posted should work. Is it giving you an error?

    Its not giving me an error, just I get a "done with errors" at the bottom of the page, and it acts like its loading, I get the green bar at the bottom of the page, then it reloads the exact same page. It wont bring me to a different page no matter which link I click on. So I am unsure if it is something on my machine, or or if it was the site. That's why i wanted to ask. I will try it on another computer when I get home to see if it is something with this laptop.
    Thanks

    I just tried it with IE, FireFox and Chrome and all work. What browser are you using? Maybe that's the issue?

    Mike, I just 'found' the vixen lights site and tried to login. Apparently I'm not registered yet but when you click to register you get an apache error:
    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

    Several pages have been updated today on the vixenlights.com website for documentation. It's still a long way from complete but there's a lot more up there now to help new users get started.
    Pay particular attention to the concepts section and it's 3 parts. It should help explain a lot of how vixen 3 is intended to work.
