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.

Dev Help

With the build out of Ushahidi version 3.0, the team put into effect a feature freeze on version 2.x, and is working on maintenance of the platform through bug fixes.

A list of prioritised bugs can be found on our github issues page. We'd appreciate any help from our larger the community, to help us fix these issues (smile).

The feature freeze doesn't stop you from sending in pull requests for features you've built in. Send in a pull request and we'll be happy to merge it in if everything checks out! A list of current feature requests can be found here.
