Well, I have decided to make a few changes. First of all, I am going to put in a table of contents. Then I am going to break up queryhelp.cgi into a number of sections. Each section will be accessable via a parameter i.e. /queryhelp.cgi?section=keywords Each small section will have a copy of the table of contents (like on the main page), but with its section expanded. I will then make changes to query.cgi to reflect this.
Severity: enhancement → normal
Summary: Personal bug - make Queryhelp.cgi less intimidating. → Make queryhelp.cgi less intimidating.
Target Milestone: Future → Bugzilla 2.18
I've already started work on this in connection with Bug 114179 (which includes templatising). Therefore, complaints specific to the layout or content of queryhelp.cgi should have that bug in mind.

OK, it would be nice to get this in before customised resolutions (bug #94534).
How is this going? I could help to templatize if it's already rewritten.
Cool. I didn't have a Bugzilla system up cause I have been doing system reinstalls and moving to a new ISP such. If I wrote it, you'd be able to templatize it and make it work with the help system? I'd first like to ask what you thought was wrong with the queryhelp so I don't make the same mistake. The biggest complaint was its too long and intimidating. The excerpts of the page being in HTML is probably not a good idea. Although it is cute how it lets the user play with the page, it means it causes browser inconsistancies. Of course, its outdated now and sections need a bit of a rewrite. The keywords section is way too long, and maybe should only provide a couple examples or a comma delimited list with a link to the true keywords page. Same with products and components. I should probably have the general description of Bugzilla be on a separate page, with only a very terse description on this page. Does this all sound good? Can you think of anything else?
By the way, I meant the excerpts should be as .png images
The new popup-based Help system also provides reasonable help (and it could be better if someone beefed up the text) for anyone with JS. I think there's an argument for doing Help by linking directly to the appropriate sections of the User part of the Bugzilla Guide... Gerv
