Hi Fester2251, Can I ask why you are making those templates? As far as I can see they aren't used anywhere... Is there a special purpose to it? --Yorikvanhavre 23:28, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

I thought I was contributing to what would eventually be the Help file included with the FreeCAD download. Apparently I was wrong. Where should I be doing this?
The wiki contains 2 kinds of pages: The general documentation, that starts on Online_Help_Toc, and the individual command pages, from Category:Command Reference. The best way to start is to pick an existing page, and extend it. If you want to create a page that doesn't exist (for example a command that hasn't a page yet), start by creating a new page (in the url, change what is after index.php?title=). Be careful to respect exactly the same naming scheme as the others (Module_ToolName) because that will be picked automatically by FreeCAD. Then start by copy/pasting the contents of GuiCommand_model in it, and adapt. I suggest you start by adding contents to existing pages, to familiarize yourself with the way our wiki works, then you can start adding new pages by copying existing ones. Any problem, don't hesitate to ask (here or on the forum). --Yorikvanhavre 23:28, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
