Kirby Helpsection Plugin


#1

I created my first panel view plugin to display help and documentation for panel users. The help pages are generated by a predefined content folder.

Thx @bastianallgeier for allowing me to use the reference page styling.

Here it is:

And this is how it looks:

OMG, it looks so cool!

This looks cool! But am missing what needs to be in the docs text files?

Thank you. :slight_smile:

A template named doc comes with the plugin which uses the fields title, excerpt and text to display the pages. The template can also be overwritten or you could use your own template.

I will add this to the readme.

I added a example folder structure: https://github.com/mgfagency/kirby-helpsection#setup

I’d love to get a copy of your actual docs (german is just fine for me), or a way to share them - I wanted to do something like this for a while now, being of great use to clients who are not quite familiar with writing stuff in () to display an image.

It would be nice to have the option to rename the menu title from “Hilfe” to something else. Or maybe it is possible and I just missed that? :slight_smile:

Edit: Oh, and one more question if I may. The example picture on GitHub shows Kirby tags inside code blocks. I tried to use link inside code block, but it always outputs regular HTML tag. How did you achieve that those Kirby tags did not get parsed?


Make Panel View name configurable

I don’t know how and asked for it.

Yes, write kirbytags with a backslash like this: (I used an additional replace before processing kirbytext)

I’m glad that it works now. :slight_smile:
