  2. Choose whether the section will be a regular post, page, custom text or just a link
  3. If you want the guide to added as inline content i.e. it will be added as a custom post type, enter the details in ‘Inline’ fields
  4. Enter Menu Title which will appear in left side as the top heading and section title which will appear as the heading for the added section
  5. Using the TinyMCE editor, you can enter the guide content including images or videos
  6. Click on ‘Add Section’ button at the bottom. The added section will start appearing on the Documentor setting page under Section.

  8. Use Drag and Drop method to reorder the sections. Those sections can be reordered and even made sub-section under another section too (just like WordPress Menu reorder)
  9. Get the embed code (shortcode or template tag) for the documentor from ‘Embed’ tab. As Documentor Lite can create only one documentation, the shortcode and template tag will always remain as below,
