What does it do?

The extension adds a module to the help section in the backend of your installation. You can define a page ID, which is loaded into this module. The idea is, that you can provide your editors an entry point, into the editors documentation.

Basically you write the documentation about content elements and functions in the backend and use the frontend rendering to display it.




The extension configuration can be set up in the extension configuration.


  • PID of help page: basic.helpPid (int+) -> the PID of the page which contains the documentation.


Adjust page rendering

In order to provide the best experience for your editors, you should try to keep the header of your layout small. You could hide elements, which are just ornaments.

Provide user / page TS to set this module as starting point

You can set up PageTS or UserTS to force users, to get this module as start module.

setup.override.startModule = help_In2helpM1

Breaking changes

Updating fom earlier versions to 6

We just changed the configuration key in LocalConfiguration.php from designPatternPid to helpPid because this extension is used to show documentations while it was once created to show a designPattern.
