The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Configuration: Help Documents

The Help Documents section of the Admin CP allows you to manage the help documents that users can view when accessing your board. These include basic information on the functionality of your forum, but you can also add your own help documents for whatever reason you see fit.

From the main Help Documents listing page, you will see a full listing of all of your Help Sections and Help Documents. You can see the description for each section or document, and see whether the section or document comes with your MyBB installation or is one you custom created just for your forum.
