WP Help

Site operators can create detailed, hierarchical documentation for the site's authors, editors, and contributors, viewable in the WordPress admin

Who can view the help documents?

Anyone who can save posts. So by default, Authors, Editors, Administrators, and Contributors

Who can edit the help documents?

Anyone who can publish_pages. So by default, Editors and Administrators.

How do I reorder the documents?

Just like you'd reorder pages. Change the Order setting for the page, in the Attributes meta box. To make something be first, give it a large negative number like -100.

How do I link to another help page from a help page?

Use WordPress' internal linking feature. When launched from a help document, it will only search for other help documents.

How do I change the default help document?

Edit the help document you want to be the default. Check the "Set as default help document" checkbox, and save. This will now be the default document.

Why can't I edit some documents?

Documents that came from another WP Help install that is currently connected, cannot be edited (your changes would just be overwritten anyway). In order to edit these documents, you need to disconnect from sync permanently, or edit the at their source WP Help install.

Will enabling sync delete my existing documents?

Enabling sync will delete any documents that came in via another sync source. But it will not delete locally-created documents.

Can I have multiple sync sources?

Not right now. But what you can do, is have a WP Help install that aggregates another WP Help install and is then itself used as a source for the combination of the two sites docs, to be delivered to a third site.

Why can't I reorder some docs using drag and drop?

You cannot internally sort synced documents — just move the whole "chunk" of synced documents around.. Also, if a local help document is the only document in its level, it won't get a drag handle, because there's nothing to reorder. Give it a sibling, and you'll be able to order them how you like.
