Document pages for help

This module knits document_page and help_popup together such that you can write your help texts as document pages. The advantage is that you can use your help texts also as (part of) a functional description of your installation, or the other way around.


To install this module, you need to:

  1. install help_popup from the web repository


To configure this module, you need to:

  1. add users to the Documentation writer or Advanced documentation writer group
  2. if you're so inclined, provide a template in the document category Documentation (added by this module)


Members of the above mentioned groups will have access to the the fields Documentation for and Advanced documentation for on a document page if the page's category is Documentation. In those fields, assign the window action(s) for which the current document page is the (advanced) documentation.

Given you can add multiple document pages as help for the same action (they will be concatenated), you can share writing documentation between multiple people writing about different aspects.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • it would be nice to have this refer to actions instead of window actions, but that's more a matter of help_popup
