Connecting To IRC

Table of contents

The Tiki Developer Community communicates by text chat 24 hours per day, 7 days in week on IRC. This is one of the ways to get help (but generally not the first). If you are not familiar with IRC channel etiquette we suggest spending a few minutes to acquaint yourself before your first session.
