Closing this issue as outdated as Drupal 6 ctools is not supported. If this issue is relevant for Drupal 7, feel free to re-open and mark for Drupal 7 (or 8)

It's also an issue for drupal 7, I suggest you reopen the issue.
I guess the getting started in advanced help page should be changed also because I cannot find the "site building" page :-)

Looks good, applies to 7.x-1.x cleanly.

Good to go.

Can someone re-open this?

None of the linked to pages have any content. Nor is there a link to Drupal User Documentation, just this Closed (fixed) issue.

This is it for, Chaos tools (ctools), 7.x-1.12:

Getting Started

Note: this page is currently very preliminary. Please visit to help provide this documentation page!

This is a quick summary:

    Visit administer >> structure >> pages to get to the primary page manager interface.
    You can add custom pages for your basic landing pages, front pages, whatever you like for normal content display.
    You can use the system pages to create finer control of how taxonomy vocabularies, nodes and user profiles are displayed.
    When you add your first custom page, do not bother with the optional features. You will not need these until you get to more advanced tasks.
    The selection rules are the key to creating node displays for just one node type.
    Everything in this system is pluggable. A little PHP knowledge and exploration of the plugins directories can take you a long way.

    The page list
    Creating a page
    Tutorial: Make a page that looks different for members
    Tutorial: Customize the look of a single node type
    Tutorial: Customize the look of a single taxonomy vocabulary

# # #

Again, no page in that list has any content, worse going up the tree in Advanced help for Page manager, shows only Title stubs and no content for anything.

It's probably best, and would reduce a huge amount of user frustration, to remove all of the Page manager Advanced help content and just link both it and the message "See the getting started guide for more information" (on /admin/structure/pages) to the whatever exists as ctools Drupal Docs on D.O.

Yeah, Advanced help is kinda a cool concept, but having to update User Docs in two places is kinda stupid too.

Who ever posts next, please add a link to whatever is the current best set of ctools user docs for Page manager in your comment and in the Issue Summary.

Never mind, well someone do add the doc link, I created a Global Docs issue #2903923: Move all Chaos Tool Suite help documentation to the D.O. documentation system to cover this.
