Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, no. There really should be a good documentation though that outlines everything. The best you’ll get is the wiki (in the backend of Magento you should see a help icon on the top that will take you to the wiki section of the page you’re on).
