SPi-V dev quick start guide

Welcome to the content developer website for the SPi-V engine. This quick guide will help you get up and running with the site itself.

SPi-V dev account

In order to participate in discussions on the SPi-V dev site, you will need to sign up for an account. Signing up is free and easy. Once you have created an account you can login and participate. You can change your account details at any time.

Keeping tabs on the latest content

There are three options for you to keep up to date with the most recent posts on SPi-V dev:

  • Email notification of new posts and comments
    To receive email notifications about new posts (and optionally new comments), modify your notification settings. On your account page, there is a tab called 'my notify settings'. On that tab you can specify if and for what posts you want to be notified.
  • Frontpage rss feed
    An RSS feed is available for posts on the front page. RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really SImple Syndication) is simply a Web-based newsreader-style way of keeping track of new content from some of your favorite sites. For more information about RSS, read this primer.
  • Recent posts list
    Follow the recent posts link in the navigation menu to get a list of the most recent posts.

Posting comments, forum topics

If you are logged in, you can post comments to annoucements and/or parts of the documentation. You can also start your own topic in a relevant forum.

Content is posted in simple HTML to allow for simple markup of your messages. Your input is filtered to disallow a number of tags that could impair the website integrity. If you want to post snippets of XML, enclose your XML with <xml> and </xml>, eg:

<some xml="fragment" />


<some xml="fragment" />

Note that the <code> and </code> pseudo tags need to be on a seperate line.

When posting HTML snippets, be sure to omit any html, head and body tags, as the website will not allow you to post content with these tags, even if they are included in a xml block.
