Default Simplylightwave.com+Lightwave Manual interwoven?

i have a suggestion that might work...
Now im no genious with website making because all i know is basic HTML..
Anyway i was wondering if its possible to make an option in the simplylightwave.com website to look through the lightwave manual, and also have a search button so you can search for keywords,

This will create a really cool place for noobs like me for easy and quick access to the manual with best search results!

Now i have no clue if this is possible, although im pretty sure it can be obtained with a little extra time on one of the moderator's hands

Please consider this as a way to improve and strengthen the simplylightwave.com website!

I expect lots of critique on this so feel free to express yourself about this suggestion!

Cheers,
Sergei

You can search the PDF manual for keywords, and there is a huge web help at the NewTek site with a search too (that can be downloaded).

I really don't see any use in this and I don't think they have the right either.

Rs14n has a good concept; making SLW a one-stop LW resource. But I suppose that unless Nwetek decides SLW is great PR and wants to give them a leg-up, then permission for the manual is a real long shot.

So... I think Rs14n should re-write the manual and donate it to the site... its only a couple hundred pages and Kevin might give him a point or two if he does a good job... right?





Okay I crack myself up.
