How do I add my own help pages to the in-built Wolfram documentation ?

    $\begingroup$ I haven't written documentation myself, but I have been looking into it for some time. It seems to me that the consensus is that the easiest path by far would be to use Wolfram Workbench if you have access to it. $\endgroup$ – MarcoB Jun 17 '15 at 13:12

    $\begingroup$ Thanks, getting JLink errors in Workbench. Seems far too messy to accomplish anything using Workbench - may simply keep code snippets etc in "CodeBox" or similar. Thanks again for suggestions. $\endgroup$ – Peter Lindsay Jun 17 '15 at 14:22

    $\begingroup$ Do you need documentation for your package or you want to be able to add a custom page (e.g. guide) to the do docs? It would be nice to be able to achieve the latter. $\endgroup$ – Kuba Jun 17 '15 at 15:59

    $\begingroup$ I am able to add documentation for my own functions using the Workbench - no JLink errors. $\endgroup$ – b.gates.you.know.what Jun 17 '15 at 18:18

Possible in Wolfram Workbench: http://www.wolfram.com/products/workbench/features/author.html

  • $\begingroup$ many thanks - I find Workbench clunky, basically unpleasant to use. $\endgroup$ – Peter Lindsay Nov 5 '15 at 8:34

Use the ApplicationMaker package.
