I'm working on updating an existing extension and I want to be able to put a "Help" section in it when someone views it in Extension Manager. I don't have any options that need to be set, just wanted to display some items to help someone use the extension if they ever wanted to. Anyone got any ideas?

Some extensions included with BE have their own Help sections that you see when editing the extension.  A couple of examples are the Recaptcha extension and MediaElementPlayer extension.  If you look in "MediaElementPlayer.cs" in the App_Code\Extensions folder, you can see where and how that Help markup is being defined.

Thanks Ben! I'll give it a look.
