• No a simple way to add role based help noted, no manual on the WP Dashboard or the installed plugin settigs screen. Requires knowledge of code / WP Codex and so not suitable to beginner. Simpler plugins are available.

    Hi Manni65929 thanks for the review sorry to hear your find things difficult hopefully I’ll be able to help you.

    The good part is that you don’t need to understand any code or use the codex to get up and running, you’ll just need to know a little about using WordPress, assignment of Roles and install a plugin to allow multiple roles. With the administrator role you don’t get access any particular Help Note, as the descriptions says they are private so remember that you’ll need to assign yourself the role to become part of the help note group of users. What I suggest is that you follow these steps and let me know how you get on..

    1) Activate role-based-help-notes
    2) install a plugin to handle multiple roles for users popular examples are members or user-role-editor. These allow for creation of new roles (e.g. ‘staff’) and also allow for users to have multiple roles allocated.
    3) Select the roles that you want to enable help Notes for from within the role-based-help-notes settings page (you’ll find this under the menu [settings]..[Help Notes] and the ‘Roles’ tab).
    4) If you want to edit any of the enabled help notes then you need to have the role yourself so depending on the plugin you installed in step (2) add the roles to your user profile.
    5) You’ll then find that the Help Notes will be available under the ‘Help Notes’ menu.

    Give that a go and let me know how you get on.

    Hi manni65929,  based on your feedback a few weeks back I extended the installation notes a little to help with the most likely reason for the issue you had.  Just wanted to touch base to see if you’ll be able to get up and running and see if we can do anything about that low star rating ? ;-).

    If you do have questions feel free to post a support forum new topic where we can discuss.
