post a "How To Use Recap" page prominently on the website.

I just stumbled onto Recap when trying to find court documents on a company that went into bankruptcy. I am not an attorney. When I saw the ominous warnings about proceeding via Pacer, I backed off and somehow, somewhere was presented with Recap. Recap looks like an elegant solution to the problem of access to public records. After downloading and adding to Chrome, I returned to the document confident that I would now be able to get it. Unfortunately, I got only the same ominous Pacer warning. Clearly something is missing and I think it's a "Recap For Dummies" page on the Recap website. Ideally this would go through each step, explaining what to do in basic, non-technical terms, showing illustrations of what one might encounter in navigating to the document one seeks.
