Help screen templates

Post by Schlu » Sun Feb 04, 2007 4:38 pm

Hi all,
not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I can't found the thread anymore where the helpscreen templates were discussed.
I'm currently finishing up the user documentation and because of the information that a new set of templates will be created I thought using them would be much less work than do the same thing later again.
Are they already available or is this a complete wrong information I have?

Thanks
schlu

Schlu,

What version of the User documentation are you referring to?

1.0.12 or 1.5?

Thanks!

Hi Michelle,

think I was a bit unclear what I meant. I'm the developer of the EventList component. In the version for Joomla! 1.5 I wrote a help for every screen and an own help center in the Backend. For the layout of the help files I used the included helpfiles of Joomla. (I always try to keep the look and feel). (In this presentation you will see what I mean)

In the forum here I found a thread where the help screens was discussed and they talk about  a set of templates which will be released soon. I just want to ask if these are already available so I could start finishing this up.
Hope you understand my english, sorry for confusing you.

Thank's Michelle,

I will try to build my helpfiles in a similar structure.

One additional question ;-)

I reworked all my templates to fit the look of the official Joomla ones. I only added some styled Info and warning boxes.
In the official help screens, icons for the usertypes are used to show the required userrank to access this screen.
Is it ok to use this icons in a 3pd Component help? If yes, when can I expect the missing ones?

Thanks in advance
