Description

The old GUI has included the documentation for the installed version for a while now. It is present on the server.

The new GUI has a link to the documentation, but instead of redirecting users to the copy stored on the server, it's a link to doc.freenas.org (see image). This feels incredibly silly and can be misleading, since there may be a mismatch between the version on the internet and the installed version of FreeNAS.

The new GUI's link should probably point to the local copy (in a new tab-friendly way, if possible).

We definitely should be hosting the docs locally so that it points to the correct version of the doc and gives users the ability to use the docs if the machine is not connected to the internet
