New Documentation Initiative

learn.liferay.com

All documentation is being centralized on a new site called learn.liferay.com.  Learn represents a large scale effort within Liferay to completely re-envision, curate, and re-write documentation to simplify and improve the learning experience for people of all backgrounds using our products.  Documentation is currently spread across several sites with some being indexed by Google and some not. The plan moving forward is that all relevant documentation will be added to learn.liferay.com.  

Learn will have documentation for the whole Liferay family of products including: Liferay Commerce, Liferay DXP Cloud,  Liferay Analytics Cloud, and Liferay Portal/DXP. Liferay Portal documentation will co-exist with the Liferay DXP documentation as all core features shared between Liferay Portal and Liferay DXP function the same.  In the future Liferay Portal and Liferay DXP articles will include a callout indicating which product the feature is meant for.  

Learn.liferay.com is very much a work in progress and at the time of this writing we’ve evaluated and covered roughly 25% of our existing documentation.  Learn.liferay.com targets Liferay Portal and Liferay DXP 7.2 and above. Documentation for previous versions has been made publicly available on Help Center at help.liferay.com. Work is currently underway to index both Help Center and Learn with Google Search.  Portal.liferay.dev will be retired and all documentation will be forwarded to Help Center. 

Where can I get documentation for latest CE portal release (say Liferay Portal 7.3 CE GA5)? Should I follow DXP doc?

Hi Philippe, all of the latest Portal CE documentation is in learn.liferay.com under DXP.  DXP and CE share enough of a foundation that we decided we could merge the documentation.  Keep in mind that we are doing a complete rewrite of the documentation and all of the features may not be documented yet.  You can check all of my release blogs to get an idea of what the new features are in each release and how they work.
