    Hello Sir,
    I know that my question looks lame. But you will Please forgive me.

    I have BetterDocs installed, and the basic settings seems ok for me.

    1.) The challenge I have, is how do I make it accessible to users on the Frontend?

    2.) How do I place BetterDocs on my Header Navigation Menu?

    3.) How do I start creating my documentation?

    Needing to hear from you soon.

    Regards

    Hi @gamicord ,

    First of all thanks for your awesome questions.

    1. Well you can simply define your doc page slug from BetterDocs > Settings > BetterDocs Root Slug and your frontend users will access your docs page with that slug. Have a look at this video: https://d.pr/v/34WZnu

    2. You can simply create a Custom Menu Item from Menus and define your docs page slug there. Have a look at this video I made for you: https://d.pr/v/OVOMRH

    3. You can simply navigate Dashboard > BetterDocs > Add New from here and start writing your Docs. Assign your Docs/Articles to the particular categories to show docs on your docs page. Have a look at this video I made for you: https://d.pr/v/xBmKut

    Hope you will be able to do this by following my instructions and videos. Besides that, we have good user documentation that you can check from here: https://betterdocs.co/docs/

    Feel free to reach us when you need any help!
    Have a good day!

    Hello Sir,
    Thanks very much for your reply. At least it helped me know that your support is super fast 😊.

    1.) Now to my issues: All the Videos didn’t work. See the errors– https://prntscr.com/1n8rqn8

    1a.) So I’m wondering if you can use Loom for the Videos?

    1b.) I await your help again with new viewable videos soon.

    1c.) Can you help me with the direct link in your documentation which addreses these my issues?

    I mean can you point me direct to links in your documentation that directly says:

    a) How to create your documents /Documentation.

    b) How to add Documents to your Navigation Menu and Header.

    c.) How to Add Documents to a Page or Post.

    d.) How to Add Documents to a Page or Post using shortcodes.

    2.) You sent me to your Documentation. But you forgot that I read your Documentation before I came to Ask for help.

    There’s nothing in your Documentation that directly says:

    a) How to create your documents/Documentation.

    b) How to add Documents to your Navigation Menu and Header.

    c.) How to Add Documents to a Page or Post.

    d.) How to Add Documents to a Page or Post using shortcodes.

    For newbies like us, can you Please update your documentation to have these four(4) Headings in the “Getting Started” part of your Documentation?

    Needing to hear from you soon.

    Regards.

    Hi @gamicord ,

    I’m sorry to hear that you could not able to see the videos that I sent you.

    As per your request, Here the Loom links of videos:

    1. Define Doc page URL for Frontend users: https://www.loom.com/share/6d631a1d843c40648f9863ae95723fca

    2. Adding Docs page in navigation menu: https://www.loom.com/share/35fe5a5b71914fa48d3eaea0613de1e9

    3. Adding new Docs/Articles: https://www.loom.com/share/716206de9f864b568d8a25eae551f22e

    In our Documentation,

    a) Create Documents/Documentation: https://betterdocs.co/docs/create-publish-new-documentation/

    b) Add Documents to your Navigation Menu and Header: Menus is a native WordPress feature hence we didn’t add this on our BetterDocs documentation.

    c and d) You need to use a shortcode to populate your Docs Grid on your Posts/Pages. Here is the documentation of using Shortcode: https://betterdocs.co/docs/use-shortcodes-display-docs/

    Above Documentations are covered in Learning and Configuration category. You can also search documentation/topics from the search box above.

    However, thanks for your suggestion. We will improve our documentation more in the future.

    Thank you!

    Thank you 😊 for this last answers.

    I couldn’t yet get your Videos and I don’t know why. See the error– https://prntscr.com/1nbxboj

    Thanks 😊

    Hi @gamicord ,

    You can try to play the videos from the Desktop/Laptop browser. Hope that will work in your case.
