    Just opened it and so far looks good.

    One question, is there a way to have it more modular?

    For example we do not and will not allow java telnet, so I would not want that part of the doc.

    Not sure how viable or not it would be to have it somehow broken down into specific areas.

    I know for the web one, I have used indexer scripts to build an index page so that ones not too hard, not sure though about the pdf versions though.

    Just some thoughts.

    But I am very happy to have/see some new docs out on cPanel.

    Keep up the good work!

    I've only had a quick look thru, but..

    CONGRATULATIONS !

    I really like the fact that it's not speciific to any one theme. There are limited graphics and the graphics that are shown could be from any theme.

    The 3 different formats are great. As dgbaker said thou, I'd probably only use the web version as I can take out pages that I don't want customers to see.

    Suggestions:
    1) I'd really like to see the docs integrated into the control panel. Basically the main docs could use the "Feature List" to control what pages are shown. Therefore only features that i allow would have pages in the docs.

    2) I'd also like to see a quick help link on each page of the control panel that linked to the relevent help page in a pop-up window.

    3) Update the help pages at the same time something is changed or added.

    The implementation of these three features would mean i would never have to concern myself with the help pages again.

    These three features are part of Ensim and have proven popular (in case you need another reason to do this).

    How to login:
    "Enter the address of your CPanel in your web browser. The address needs to be in the form of http://www.yourdomain.com:2082"

    In this day and age I would think that most hosting providers would prefer their customers to use
    https://www.yourdomain.com:2083

    I have port 2082 firewalled, so 2083 is the ONLY option, yet it isn't even mentioned?

    I moved the ZIP file over to the main webserver. You can find it at http://www.cpanel.net/draft1.zip now. I also modified the original post to show the new address.

    I am DISAPPOINTED on new draft. As you can see there is no implementation of various comments on http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10636.

    It just same as the Old Cpanel Doc which add more options but still missing few options. I saw improvement only on more references to external articles. It's not enough. We need a document that user able to follow without asking hosting provider again. There is very little examples, hint, note, warning.

    It would be nice to have a centralised version more like the php.net docs with user comments etc...

    If something doesn't work, is slightly faulty, or hard to setup its nearly impossible to find an answer using the current systems. forum/docs etc...

    Whoa! Did we jump from 7 to 8 fast!

    I would like to see the cpanel "Documentation Click to View " link at least updated to this draft instead of the old crusty 5 version which is barely applicable at all and just looks tacky when a user is in cpanel.

    I agree! Can't we at least get caught up with documentation?
