SMF User Help pages

I can find them by Googling, but where's the link from the forum itself? A new member wouldn't be aware they existed.

Re: SMF User Help pages

Excuse my ignorance but why would user need to use them or are you referring to the BBcodes

Re: SMF User Help pages

I was looking for the Help a few days ago - ended up going to the Simple Machines website to find them.
Actually I find the on-line documentation at http://docs.simplemachines.org/ a lot more useful. the section on BBcodes lists more options including one I saw you using yourself earlier today!

Er, because they are the help pages for users of the forum.  Roll eyes
There used to be a link - I'm thinking that maybe it was accidentally left out on the last forum re-shuffle.

Which, the help on community.plus.net or the online documentation at SimpleMachines?
The help I found what to add to the URL by looking at where it was on the PUG forums.
For the online manual click on Powered by SMF at the bottom of the forum and then on-line manual in the top menu.

OK, I believe you now Jim - I really thought you were winding me up.  Wink
This was brought home to me tonight when in Reply#9 here - http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,90444.msg756154.html#msg756154 ; I was offering some guidance on using quotes in posts. I was about to refer to the link to the help pages and realised it was no longer there.
