Guide 3

Craft CMS is intuitive. Marketing plans and organizational workflows—not so much. Guide lets you create a user manual throughout Craft CMS so content authors don‘t need to go far to get the answers they need.

Guide was built to be a CMS manual, but Guide 3 is also a quick way to create widgets and unique Craft CP pages, without the use of a custom module or the need for PHP.

Display your guides within a Control Panel section, on content edit pages, and in Dashboard widgets. Guides can be added to any page in the control panel—plugin setting pages, element index pages, wherever you decide.

The Guide Organizer shows you all of the guides in your CMS and makes it easy to add them around the Craft CP.

Content authors can also collaborate and contribute by editing guides right within Craft CMS. A built-in code editor makes it easy to write and edit guides using Twig components, Markdown, and Tailwind CSS—based utility classes.

The PRO edition of Guide includes a code editor and Twig components that make it easy to place helpful information around the Craft CMS Control Panel (standalone CP pages, widgets, UI elements, and any CP URL you specify).

The LITE edition is offered for developers who prefer to write their own guide templates and to display them in the Guide CP section.

Guide’s edition can be upgraded to PRO at any time.



Plus $25/year after one year.
