Online Documentation for Plugins

Do you have online documentation for your plugins? The popup info box displaying the instructions gets in the way of my administration. It would be good to have online resources or a readme that we can open in new window so it's out of the way. I looked under Manuals on the WPMU website, but couldn't find one for the plugin. That might be a logical place for them. Thanks!

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for the question!

    You can find documentation on each individual plugin page.

    For example I will use the page of Membership plugin.
    Please refer to the screenshot.

    When you visit the page you will find the main content area with two tabs - "Detail" and "Usage".

    On the detail tab you will find general information about the plugin and what it does.
    Usage page is for Manual(if it's available) and installation and usage instructions.

    On the right sidebar you will find information about:
    -Current version of the plugin - click it and you will see the changelog for this version
    -Changelog - when you click it, you will see all previous versions
    -Link to the translations for the plugin

    Also there is a list with the other software that the plugin is compatible with like MultiSite and BuddyPress.

    And above that sidebar you can usually find a short video about the plugin.

    Let me know if this helps.
