The CakePHP cookbook is an openly developed and community editable documentation project. We hope to maintain a high level of quality, validity and accuracy for the documentation. Notice the “Improve this Doc” button in the upper right-hand corner; it will direct you to the GitHub online editor of the active page, allowing you to easily contribute any additions, deletions, or corrections to the documentation.
