After watching Vova using my weDocs plugin for his plugin documentation, it was really intimidating. I loved the post, he explained his process with a case study and implemented few new things that I liked. So I decided to bring few features into the plugin.
Icon font added
Using icomoon, only a few selected icons has been added to the plugin to power up the use of icons in various areas, like home icon, print icon, email icon and so on. Only few glyphs has been used, so it’s tiny as well.
Printing a documentation might be a good feature to have, download something important and refer it at a later point. This feature opens a new window containing only the title and post content of the documentation, so it looks clean and printable. Right now it’s a bit buggy, but will be fixed.
Email feedback form
Taking the inspiration from helpscout docs, a feedback form has been added at the bottom of each documentation. The send to email address can be configured from the new settings area, also the feature can be turned off.
The plugin is more responsive to mobile and tablet devices. Still not perfect, but it plays nicer than before.
A new settings page has been added for turning on/off features.
The helpfulness feedback details now show on every documentation edit page sidebar. Also, you can sort the articles by their helpfulness score in the classic UI, so you can see what’s working or not. Right now it sorts by the positive number only.
Few callout styles have been added. Though it’s a theming feature, but comes in handy. Usage:
<div class="wedocs-callout callout-yellow">
<h3>This is a yellow callout</h3>
<p>Just add class="callout-yellow". It's really that easy.</p>
I hope these changes will be effective on the documentation experience for the users. If you haven’t yet, download the plugin from WordPress.org. Cheers!
