The abc website is divided into four sections (each of which function slightly differently with regard to cookies):

  • The blog - occasional musings on the world of abc
  • The forums - for discussions about abc
  • The wiki - containing the abc standard
  • The main website - pretty much everything else, including the tune search, with tens of thousands of tune pages which you can search or browse, and a number of static pages, such as lists of tune collections, tutorials & software.

The blog, forums and wiki are created from off-the-shelf software (WordPress, phpBB and DokuWiki respectively). The main website is custom built.

NB In the following diagram, entries in square brackets [like this] indicate multiple pages. Entries which are not part of the main website are shown in italics.
