May already be planned, if so, please disregard. But there should be an editable FAQ section, or the current Help section should be made to be edited (without creating/editing phrases and editing templates of course).
Having this type of content to refer new members to is a huge time saver over having to explain in a post or pm how to do something.
But aren't pages limited in their placement on the forums? That is, they have to be listed in the forum area, like a category or forum? I'm looking to be able to provide a tab or link in a navigation bar/block to such content.
And will the Help area not be an editable area (w/o editing phrases/templates)? Or is it just too early to tell yet?
Yeah, I want to make the change, but a few things are holding me back...
1) I'm nervous doing so since my db is so large, so it's a really big deal to do so
2) I'm a little concerned about the decreased activity on XF development (it has slowed to a crawl compared to what it used to be). I understand this is probably due to the lawsuit(s), but just the fact that it exists makes me anxious.
3) I would need to integrate XF into a WP theme (which there is a mod to do so), but finding the right theme for my community is a bit daunting, it takes time.
4) vb5 is on the horizon, and I'm curious how different from vb4 it will be. If it is good enough, I may not need to make the switch. In which case, I'll use XF for a different community I'm planning.
Glad to see the help menu addition though, it will definitely come in handy.
As we are migrating to Xenforo in a few months, I have just noticed that it's not possible to edit the help section.
Quite surprised really.
So a +1 here for an editable help section, please, so I can incorporate help on using our editorial section and other addons.
