What is Sidekick for WordPress?

The Sidekick platform provides real-time, guided support and learning from within any html or PHP based web application or CMS. Support is provided through modules called “Walkthroughs” that guide users through everything from understanding simple aspects of an application to completing complicated tasks.

The Sidekick plugin for WordPress connects the Sidekick platform with any WordPress Dashboard allowing real-time guided walkthroughs of core and 3rd party WordPress features and functions.

What is a Sidekick Walkthrough?

A Sidekick for WordPress Walkthrough is a real-time, guided tutorial that walks you step by step through completing a task inside your WordPress Dashboard. It’s as if your site-builder or theme developer were standing right there with you, helping you get it done.

What are Core and 3rd Party WordPress Walkthroughs?

When we say “Core Walkthroughs” for WordPress, we are referring to any support and learning that has to do with features and functions provided by a fresh, default install of WordPress, downloaded from WordPress.org. Basically, if a walkthrough is helpng you complete a standard WordPress function like creating a post, it’s a Core Walkthrough and SIDEKICK created it.

Plugin and theme specific Walkthroughs are called Third Party Walkthroughs and are created and maintained by the plugin or theme creator, unless otherwise mentioned.

How do I create Walkthroughs for my Plugin(s) or Theme(s)?

At the moment Sidekick Composer, the tool we use to create Walkthroughs, is for in-house use only but we plan for that to change by the end of July 2014. If you’re interested in getting a head start, fill out the form on this page and we will send you details on how to join us a little earlier.

What does Sidekick for WordPress cost?

The Sidekick plugin for WordPress is and always will be free to download and use. Installing the plugin gives you instant and unlimited access to 30 Core WordPress How-To and Overview Walkthroughs.

If you would like access to the full library of Core WordPress Walkthroughs (Over 150) including Hotspots, the cost is $10 a month per URL.

Ok, the plugin is installed and activated. How do I use it?

Click on the “Help Me” bottom left of your screen to open the Walkthrough menu. You will be presented with the Walkthrough menu. Select your bucket then your walkthrough and away you go.
