Ticket #714 (wontfix enhancement)

An improved Help-page

  • Created: 2012-08-04 10:09:20
  • Reported by: Studio384
  • Assigned to: Studio384
  • Milestone: 1.6
  • Component: usability
  • Priority: normal

If there is one thing I dislike at any way at FluxBB, then it's the page that needs users to help them with BBCodes. Why there is no menu and/or footer on that page? I think it's a good idea to put both in the template of the help-page, that's more user friendly, I think.

  • Milestone set to 2.0-beta1.
  • Owner set to JohnLewis.

One thing to consider. I have put this as Beta1 as it does fit there a bit. If anyone wants to move it forward, Please do so. I will consider the addition of it to the footer or other locations but I believe a re-write of the page itself would come as a positive use of time.

If anyone has a problem with this, Move it to your view.

Actualy, I vote for 1.5.1 (or let it wait a bit for 1.5.2).

JohnLewis 2012-10-08 14:13:24

There will be no 1.5.2 and this does seem appropriate for 2.0 as a new software should equal and new and improved help age with more availability. There is not much use focusing on 1.5 features anyway.

I agree it's not worth the effort for the 1.5 branch.

We should focus on getting 1.5.1 out very soon, and then hope there aren't many more bugs found in that version (because in that case a 1.5.2 would become necessary at some point).

I actually disagree about this improving usability. The help page is meant to be open on a new window/tab. It's there for the user to look at (or have it side by side with the forum content).

All navigation should happen in the main window.
