I propose extending the help system to support more verbosity for all modules, instead of the system module.

The supporting options would be stored in a module's xoops_version.php as such:


$i=0;
$modversion['helpsection'][$i]['name'] = "Page 1";
$modversion['helpsection'][$i]['link'] = "page=help";
$i++;
$modversion['helpsection'][$i]['name'] = "Page 2";
$modversion['helpsection'][$i]['link'] = "page=help2";


Implementation would require the modification of help.php to support this new field if it was present, and fall back to the standard "help" definition in the absence of the help section

I have attached a modified help.php for XOOPS 2.5.6 which accomplishes this w/o error.
