I’ve been rather busy lately putting together a WordPress and BBPress site for Zen at Heart. Because the site is heavily restricted I needed to use all kinds of interesting plugins, but I’ll write more about them later.
Although I remain as Technical Support for the site, I needed to hand on all kinds of instructions about operating the site, such as the steps to take to allow only certain groups of people to see certain content.
Today I found an excellent plugin that makes it possible to keep those instructions actually on the site, and visible when needed: WP Instructions Plugin by Sam Burdge:
As someone who regularly sets up WordPress sites for clients, often with bespoke themes and various plugins installed, I find it useful and helpful to include basic instructions for them. I used to send a text document to them by email when I handed the site over, but more recently have been including an instructions page as a tab in WordPress.
This plugin allows you to create a custom instructions page for a wordpress blog. Especially useful for those setting up WordPress sites for other people. You can use it to provide instructions for use of specific plugins etc.
The Instructions appear in the Dashboard, and are simply created as a .txt file containing HTML.
