    It is now in the footer as it is a rarely used link.

    You can add a new tab for that link using NodesAsTabs. You would first enable tab selection for link-forums:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Nodes As Tabs -> Enable Tab Selection For Link-forums

    Then create nodes like this:

    Help (link-forum pointing to help/, enable Display As Tab, set Depth Of Child Links to 1)
    -- Smilies (link-forum pointing to help/smilies, child of Help)
    -- BB Codes (link-forum pointing to help/bb-codes, child of Help)
    -- Trophies (link-forum pointing to help/trophies, child of Help)
    -- Cookie Usage (link-forum pointing to help/cookies, child of Help)

    The child nodes aren't necessary if you don't want to recreate the secondary links under that tab.

    The alternative to using NodesAsTabs would be to create an addon specifically for the Help tab. The route must be extended and the actual tab added to the navbar again through a template edit or extraTabs entry which is what NodesAsTabs does.
