Vardoc is Open Source

Vardoc is developed by a core team of experienced Drupal developments and is funded and supported by Vardot, a leading Drupal agency with offices in USA, Egypt, and Jordan. 

Vardoc is available as an open source and FREE software for developers and development teams to install, host and run it yourself.

Open Source software is free and promotes the collaboration and sharing of ideas. Vardoc is built on Drupal which is Open Source and is completely free. Everyone should contribute something, sometimes simply reporting and maybe fixing a minor bug can make a difference. The Drupal community and the marketplace make money supporting Drupal. If you need a feature or support you should contact the Vardoc maintainer.

Vardoc utilizes the powerful Book feature to create hierarchical content that flows logically.

book is a set of pages tied together in a hierarchical sequence, perhaps with chapters, sections, subsections, and so on. You can use books for manuals, site resource guides, or whatever you'd like.

When a visitor to a Vardoc site is viewing a book page, they will automatically see links at the bottom for navigating from the parent-page to the first child page, and from the previous page to the next page. A link labeled Up leads back to the parent page in the book structure.

If the books on a Vardoc site are complex, you may find that you need additional navigational aids beyond the table of contents and the previous/next/up links for users to understand where they are in your book.
That's where the navigational sidebar will have a menu that shows where the user is in your book; the menu is only visible when viewing the book.
