I would like to use blogging software as a help authoring tool, rather than using something like RoboHelp. By help authoring tool, I'm referring to software that creates online help or some other help file.
Here's the problem. I'm not quite sure how to organize the posts in the table of contents. I could make different categories for the different main topics of the help, and then call only those posts that belong to distinct categories, but I'm not sure that's the best way. Plus, I'd have to create a new style for their display in a sidebar.
Is there any such thing as help templates? I tried organizing the sidebar manually for some basic help content about customizing connections (which you can see at http://stc-suncoast.org/customizing-connections/). But it seems like there must be a better way, a more automated way.
Here's a larger question: If I created page templates that were specific to the help topics, is there a way that I could call only pages based off those specific page templates, rather than all pages?
Thanks for your help.
