Is it possible to change the 'help' button url inside a plugin (that I am developing) to get the documentation from my site? I managed to add not replace, with JToolbarHelper::help()

1 Answer 1


I found a way of doing it. In plugin manifest file add:

<help url="HELP_URL" />

then, in plugin language file define:

HELP_URL = "http://example.com"

Now, I have the help button, inside my plugin, with my custom url. Hope this could be usefull to someone to.
