    Description

      Consider these three documentation pages:
      1. http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/expire-data/
      2. http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorials/modify-an-index/
      3. https://docs.mongodb.org/manual/reference/command/collMod/

      I want to modify an existing TTL index to update the expireAfterSeconds.

      I consult page 1, and learn about how to create a TTL index, and how they work. I consult 2, because I can use a search bar. Likely, I drop and create the TTL index as suggested there.

      Later I consult 3, and learn that there is a better way.

      Can we link or reference page 3 from page 1, to avoid such tragedy?
