      PHP Version:


      When a site designer sets up new content classes, it is difficult to communicate to the content administrator and content editors how that content will appear on the site. Users who are updating or adding content are presented with a "Summary" field but they do not realize that the summary appears in folder listings, before the details in the full view, and in search results.

      If the content classes had a "help" or "tip" for each datatype, designers could put some contextual help in each content class, allowing users a better understanding of how the content that they are typing in to a web-based admin form will be used on the site.

      For sites with one or two admins, this is not necessary. But clearly, eZ is meant to accommodate larger sites and organizations in which such a feature would significantly reduce the training burden and improve content quality.
