Hi Manuel,

I'm looking for something in your package that will help me get started working with it. I'm very new to the whole 0Auth process and I need some working examples of your package to get me started. Where in your code or what website should I read over first to help me understand how best to take advantage of this process?

No I didn't, may I suggest if this is your primary introduction on how to use your package that you place a link to it inside of the 'Detailed description' section on your main page.

Q: How would I find this article on my own, and why is this not found anywhere on GitHub?

Yes, there is a link to the blog section at the top of this page, but you are right, the way it is now, it is not giving good exposure to package blog articles.

The good news is that a redesign of the package pages is underway and it will give more exposure to individual blog articles but also to demo pages on other sites.

As for Github, it is fine for project hosting, but Github by itself does not give my work great exposure. I need to do my own marketing to promote the class.

In PHP Classes, whenever I update my class or post a blog article about it, PHP Classes sends an email alert to all users that have downloaded the class, so they can come and be updated.

I also keep my packages in private repositories hosted on my development environment, so I decide when the updated package are published and avoid getting reports for bugs or issues with non-stable versions.

But this is just my case. Other developers have their package projects hosted in Github and import them into PHP Classes when they have new releases, which is also fine.

Your right Manuel, I found it under the blog section. But it was a bit of an Easter Egg hunt to find on my own. I still recommend you add a link to it somewhere in your initial detailed description.

On the upside, I think you have done a fantastic job with this package. I personally want to thank you for all the hard work you've done here.

Once I've had a chance to fully integrate your work into my own I'll be sure to let you know.
