I installed NodeBB for a client and they are asking me lots of questions about How to use NodeBB as a user, and how to adjust profile settings, notification settings.
Is there any end-user documentation anywhere?
Yeah, a user manual would be good for standard users It would be easier to sell in NodeBB as a platform
I installed NodeBB for a client
Congrats! Where do I send the invoice
Seriously, though, we don't have end-user documentation, and that is something that we should have. It is going to be a part of our upcoming effort to address deficiencies in our documentation overall (as our admin guide does need work as well).
Whenever I develop something for a client I send a video of how to use the product. Much more effective and personal than a page of notes.
Another solution is to get payed for helping the customer to learn howto use Nodebb
Thanks for the replies. I would say that I will write the end user documentation but experience tells me that this will never happen
I also dont think I would be able to create a video for every single admin option, user-interface button etc.
Would this be something the community could do? i.e create a list of all features and people could commit to documenting / recording one feature? We would need to standardise on the recording process.
@julian community-centric video series...
Imagine different voices explaining what different buttons do on a page
Perhaps we'll aim lower and shoot for end-user text documentation
Throw it up on github and let's get started! I would happily contribue!
