Removing the Help Menu - Adding my Own Help text

Since the help menu and topics lead to empty stubs right now, I don't want my users to click on that and be confused or upset with me when looking for docs. Is there a way to temporarily hide the help menu?

Also, if I want to write up my own help files for my board, which files do I need to edit to update that or add pages on my forum?

Thanks much!

Hiding the menu should be simple enough with Ultimate Menu.

I've added some pages with Pages (see here and here). It's probably way too complex if you just want something simple, but I wanted to give myself some extra flexibility.

Hmm, it appears the Ultimate Menu add-on only lets you add menus, not edit any of the default, built-in ones. At least unless I'm missing something. Will keep monkeying with it though and report back with results.

To hide it, you can edit Subs.php:
Code: [Select]
					'help' => array(
'title' => $txt['help'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=help',
'show' => true,
),
to:
Code: [Select]
					'help' => array(
'title' => $txt['help'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=help',
'show' => false,
),

Sorry, it's been a while since I set it up. It might be worth suggesting it for the next version! :)
