    Today, we have a video showing upcoming improvements to the XenForo help system, and a new way to surface profile posts.

    My apologies for the sound quality, I'm hoping that some new audio gear will be arriving before I record the next one of these.

    Just a reminder: Please do not post suggestions in this thread (even if you feel they are related). Use the dedicated suggestion forum so they can be tracked; suggestions made in this thread are unlikely to be implemented.

    Missed your voice and your vids XD. Time to procrastinate during work for a few minutes to watch this.

    I should mention that there was serious debate in the staff room as to whether I should state that having custom help pages is pretty much the same as having a CMS...

    Hi, how easy is it to remove or edit default Help pages? (The smilies, BBCode, Trophies etc.)

    I was going to mention that :p

    There's almost always a sneak peak to other new features in these videos...

    You will still need to edit templates, @sadikb, this doesn't manage the default pages. Just new ones.

    Some really nice improvements. The profile posts sidebar is great. It's the best implementation that I've seen of it so far.

    Yeah, the new system is very powerful (i'm also think that i would be easy for you to expand this feature into an article system).

    My suggestion for the help page is to allow the possibility to use BB Code in Help Pages.

    I see. Not that it's a big deal but most people would kinda expect to be able to change the default ones also.

    I came here tonight to specifically ask about adding to the help page:D. So glad I saw this video before I posted..... Roll on 1.4 (y)

    You can already do that with templates & phrases, they just aren't on one page together (which is what I'm assuming you want). Without seeing the code, Mike & Kier would essentially have to send the default pages to be custom or modify how this system works to handle the default ones.

    Yeah. I don't see the point of having the default pages. Just use the new help system for ALL pages.

    At least one of the default pages is required by EU law.
