Software development stage: alpha
Plone Help Registry creates a registry, where administrators and 3rd party products can add individual registrations for help documents.


  • Help objects themselves can be anything, so administrators/documentors can create help as PageTemplates, Documents, PloneHelpCenter types, etc., or any mix thereof.
  • The connection between the help and getting it to appear is done via TALES expressions.
  • Help links are shown in a portlet (though, given that this is registry-based, other presentations could be easily made).
  • The help offered is placeful within a site that is, you only get help on how to publish an unpublished object when you're on that object but isn't placeful within the page: the help for choosing a good title isn't going to appear next to the title edit field.
  • Actions are listed in a registry, so that all configuration takes place in the ZMI (& it would be possible to make a PloneControlPanel for this.)
