Help pages[edit]

  • Help content should be updated as no maintenance performed after automatic imports from Meta halted
  • Pull content from mature Wikipedia help pages with attribution in edit summary and localize to Wikibooks
  • Go through Wikibooks namespace for pages that should be in help namespace
  • Move FAQs to subpages of Help:FAQ, condense to one link in sidebar nav (and Help:Contents if more is added?), and create Template:Wikibooks FAQ to link them and provide search box.
  • Potentially use a horizontal navbox instead of the layout currently at Template:Wikibooks help to permit links to some of the Help pages linked from Help:Contents and not the template, possibly using Template:Navbox with collapsible groups if it gets too large
  • Potentially redesign Help:Contents
