Jillianne and Jane, I like what you have done a *lot*. It makes so much sense and is less intimidating for us cataloger types who shy away from system administration.
I wonder ... could the concept be taken a step further to include hot links, in Webby, to a constantly updated HTML version of the documentation? I see 3 possibilities. - Create a "Documentation" dropdown menu, consisting of all 7 docs, alongside of Search | Circulation | Cataloging | etc. - Add "Documentation" as a line item in the existing dropdown menus. - Ideally, right click on any dropdown menu line item, then have a line on the popup window with a context sensitive hot link. OCLC does something similar with a "MARC Field Help" hot link to its Bibliographic Formats and Standards. Thanks so much for your great work! +1 Don On Wed, Aug 23, 2017 at 4:37 PM, Mary Llewellyn <mllew...@biblio.org> wrote: > I think it looks great, much less overwhelming to have the module > documentation split up. > > Mary > > > On Thu, Aug 17, 2017 at 3:28 PM, Ruth Frasur <director@hagerstownlibrary. > org> wrote: > >> This looks great.
