Can I migrate from WP Help plugin?
Definitely. Just convert your documents into ‘Help Documents’ post type.
You can either use the Post Type Switcher plugin or run this SQL query in your database:
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_type = 'help-docs' WHERE post_type = 'wp-help'
If you are using the Post Type Switcher, change the post type of your posts to ‘Help Documents’.
