The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

  1. This is very confusing. We have github where issues are logged and dev happens. There is this space and then the community where I can't register and there is no simple contact form ANYWHERE. This is such a great platform and concept but is really difficult to get anywhere with. mobile apps have serious bugs.
