Joomla 1.0.8 Help Suggestions: Menus

Post by thenewbreed » Tue Jun 27, 2006 6:51 pm

We are relaunching our site using a Joomla 1.0.8 and IPB (Invision) hybrid created by BBPixel.com. As I am totally new to Joomla and must now set up our preferences in the Admin area, here are our suggestions for the Help Menu:

1) Topic: Menu Manager : New / Edit Menu
URL: http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1524/234/

A new user might want to change the name of a menu, e.g. 'Main Menu' to 'Navigation'. It would seem that this would be possible by editing the 'mainmenu' title in the Menu Manager but this is not so. It would be helpful to put a sentence in this Help document that states exactly something like "To change the title of a menu, go to Modules > Site Modules  then click the menu's name to edit it (or check it and then click Edit) and change the name and parameters."

2) There should be a search bar on every page of the Help section.

3) Glossary: Put a definition of the "debug" module with a link to the Help article regarding Global Configuration. We came across the "Debug" area when we printed our template as a "Preview Inline w/Positions" and saw a box for it at the bottom of the page. We didn't know where it was and it did not come up in a search in the Help site. So we did a search for "debug site Joomla" in Google and it took us to the Global Confiiguration Help page.
3a) Add these to the Glossary:
    Category Title:  The short name to appear in menus (Ex: Joomla News)
    Category Name: The long name to be displayed in headings (Ex: Joomla News from various Sites)
    from: http://www.joomlatribune.com/content/view/178/38/

I'll add to this as I go through.
