Inline Manual 1.1 release - Rules support - onboard new users like a pro

The fastest way to teach your users how to use your web application got even faster. We have integrated the great Rules module, so you can easily define logic within your Drupal installation when to launch specific tutorials.

Imagine you have built a website for your client and now you need to train the editors how to work with content. You can use Inline Manual for this already, instead of doing workshops or screencasts, however, what if there are new employees/editors coming in afterwards? How would you get them quickly learn the system?

Get off the phone: Helping users through better UX and tools - Jam's DrupalCamp

Jam (Jeffrey A. McGuire) from Acquia approached me right after I gave presentation about user assistance at Drupal Camp Copenhagen with his brilliant idea > Jam's Drupal Camp. A concept of having sessions Jam liked while traveling around the world and bring them online as hangouts. I was the very first guest and I did really enjoy it. It was a new experience for me, especially that part when you don't see the audience. :)

Process improvement: Creating website manuals for clients in under 5 minutes

Back from Drupalcamp Vienna, where I talked about how supporting your users is one of the processes of web development that we should not forget about. I gathered some interesting feedback from visitors and again it proved how everyone is struggling with handing over any information on how to operate website. It either takes ages to create (screenshots and screencasts) or it is not reusable.

Revolution in end-user documentation! Say hello to Inline Manual

Let's face it. Making documentation for end-users (content editors, administrators, etc...) is the most painful process of all the processes when it comes to handing over a project to the client. Hard to estimate, time consuming to create, never up to date, almost impossible to re-use, change one thing and you have to rebuild all the screenshots, realisation that nobody reads it, etc... Sounds familiar?

While working on just CSS changes on your Drupal website, it can sometime take ages to reload on performance heavy pages.
Here is a bookmarklet I've found by Erik A. Hanson and improved by Josh L that allows you to just refresh the CSS files without reloading the whole website (hitting the server). Just grab the link below to your bookmarks and click it whenever you want to refresh the styles.

More on 3D Drupal visualization, now in browser

Those who are following know, that I am experimenting with different ways how to explain designers Drupal in my workshops. The tilt extension worked fine but was not flexible enough (for me) being it written for Firefox. The more I learned about CSS3 I knew I am on the right way to have something out of this. Here is the current result. It is in the early stage, but quite soon I will get where I want with this. Right now it is working with the default Drupal classes, but can be easily extended.
