Where did the old Documentation go?

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A week ago, http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/ had an amazing design. It had a sidebar on the left you could scroll through while still staying on your same page to the right. The sidebar also had every function listed, so you could do an easy search and find anything you were looking for.

The new doc lost the sidebar, and is now divided into categories, which makes searching extremely difficult if you do not know what section to look under.

Two questions:

1) Can the old documentation still be accessed?

2) Why did the style of the documentation change?

A new version was released today (3.2), don't really know why any of that was changed, but I'm sure implimentation of extra stuff if need be will be put back the way it was.

I do not think the style has changed, just select the index tab at the top and you should see what you want.

I have not seen the production version with frames. I did publish the Beta in a frames page a while ago :

The newest version of AutoIt isn't a beta anymore, but actually a new and fresh stable.

Which also includes the documentation (as always) btw, just in case you didn't know :whistle:
