I’ve recently written a Content Management System. That part was fairly easy (well maybe not that easy), the hard part comes when I try and write a series of help pages for it. Why should I? I know it works, I know how to use it, and it looks as simple as pie to me!
Obviously anyone else would look at it and go ‘huh?’. I know something is needed, but it isn’t easy trying to write something that will help others. I have to take regular breaks as I find it extremely tiresome. I find this more difficult to do than the coding itself!
Then of course you realise just how much of it needs explaining… the help pages end up being larger than the scripts!
Why can’t everyone just ‘know’ things straight away, would be sooo much easier 🙂
