I've been looking for some documentation on the pre-installed addons. I was hoping for something that lists every addon that comes with ocPortal and describes what they do. I've searched the documentation and forums for a couple of hours but came up empty. Anyone know where it's at? O_o

There isn't currently anything that goes through addon-by-addon like that.

Maybe I can get a table done up for you, that compiles the addon name against the addon label against the tutorials that apply for it.

Would that serve your needs?

That would be very helpful. As a new user I really feel lost when it comes to the addons. Anything that lists them as they are named in the admin area and explains what they do, what other addons they require, and any other info would be a big help. If all that info is listed somewhere I have not been able to find it after extensive searching, so a table that linked it all together would be awesome.

I'm currently working on this :).

You are the 2nd person to suggest this, and I do think it is a great idea. I think I'll have something later today.

Okay, I've built a script to build this addon tutorial index automatically. As I've done that in our WIP v10 version, I've had to do a rough&ready back-conversion to PDF for our current version…

It's actually quite a handy reminder for us to ensure each addon has some documentation somewhere, because I made my script flag an error if any addon didn't have a tutorial(s) defined against it.

Very nice work! You got the pictures and everything. I really appreciate you taking the time to to do this now instead of later. It's a HUGE help, I don't feel lost anymore!

Thank you Chris. Never before have I seen a lead dev/creator so involved with daily support. I'm blown away by ocPortal and it's crew. :thumbs:
