Manual for forum admins

It should be extremely helpful to forum admins, especially those new to MyBB. Besides, core modules at the AdminCP area could leverage such advantage by linking a ? to a dedicated help page for each setting / option.

I know docs for 1.6 (EOL) have it.

Development guidelines for core/plugin/theme developers

Haven't got a complete thought about what the guidelines would cover, but what already resides in my brain is:
  • For core developers:
    • Program logics/workflows that one should obey, including but not limiting to:
      • how MyBB handles a request like first load XXX, then create MyBB/DB/template/cache/plugin/etc. instances, then load db/cache/etc..
      • a specific user's permissions/settings are inherited from their primary/additional/display user group(s); a user's permissions in a specific forum are calculated by first fetching the user's permissions then overriding by forum's specified..
  • For plugin developers:
    • Recommended implementation / Best-practice: for example don't cache volatile variables or implement a feasible cache reloading mechanism; don't break program workflows; use internal data handlers for security / compatible concerns; etc.
  • For theme developers:
    • ...
Could be wrong but worth a try.
