Hi, this is a pre-sale question. How do you deal with nested categories? I played around with the admin demo I found for your KB plugins and created a sub-category with a test page, but by selecting the parent category, the sub category was not listed anywhere.
I have your plugin install across my multi site. On one of my sub domain sites, when the plugin is activated, it brakes the site and produces a 500 server error.
I’m using the plugin in multi site installation too. But, didn’t faced any kind of issue. May be other plugin causes that issue. You can deactivate all the plugins and activate one by one to diagnosis the issue. Let me know your feedback.
Hi, I have done all this. but the issue only happens when I activate your plugin. would you be able to have a look for me?
Hi, any update on this? This is currently delaying my project.
Hello – Good plugin, but the key drawback for us is that the lag time on the ajax search is much slower than your FAQ plugin. Do you have plans to improve this – i.e. perhaps use the same speedy functionality as on the other plugin? This will make a big difference in our decision to stick with the plugin, or not. Thank you.
Thanks for your message.
- FAQ plugin search only works for currently displayed items. But KB plugin search find the keyword in entire KB items. That’s why it seems bit slow. But it’s much more efficient than FAQ plugin.
Note: You can limit KB search function to find & match keywords only in KB post title. It will speed up your search functionality.
Hope that will help you.
Hi Is it possible to bring the attachment section above the Voting box and the sharing? To insert it actually in the article section? Because it is way below everything and I am afraid users won’t find it and think the article is over and there is no attachment. Also there is no anchor point so I can’t even link to it. Thanks!
Yes, it’s possible. It’s need little bit code customization. You can check the result in following page-

You’re support message replied. Please check.
Hi, with the search functionality, Is there a way of making a new page display with all the search results when clicking search. This is instead of the drop down happening with the results.
Yes, it’s possible. But, required plugin code customization to get that functionality.
Hi, thanks for the reply. how can we do this?
Please check following example code-
Thanks for this, I have added the shortcode to the page and the css to the custom css area in the plugin. But when i load the page it only displays the short code and not the search box. Could you supply some more instructions?
I’ve sent you message with a Addon link and instructions. Please check your inbox and let me know if you need more help.
I just bought and installed the plugin.
I added several categories, subcategories and articles.
How can I see the subcategories?
If I click on a category, I see all articles from all related subcategories. It makes no sense. It should show the subcategories list and after you click on a subcategory, you should see the articles list.
Also, you never know where you are since the breadcrumb is missing.
On the sidebar, also only the main categories are visible.
I also noticed that the listing and the details pages are not using the same template as the main page. They use the blog details page. That’s quite bad because this is not a blog. I’m using masonry for the blog and a right sidebar.
On the Knowledge Base page I use a left sidebar. Only the main page looks good.
Also, the URLs are arong. The main URL is .com/knowledge-base/.
The category URL is: .com/blog/categorie/categorie-name/
The details URL is: .com/blog/knowledge-base/article-name/
So, /blog/ shouldn’t be there and /knowledge-base/, which is the main page slug, is missing. It’s visible again on the article details page.
Basically, the category is loosing the hierarchy.
Not to mention that the subcategories slugs are missing from URL.
What is the point of adding subcategories if they are not visible? Not in the category page, not in URL, not in breadcrumbs.
I hope you can improve it.
I just noticed one more thing.
On the main page, it shows the categories and also the subcategories as main categories. There is no difference.
And if a category has no articles but it has subcategories with articles, it shows 0 for the main category and below are the articles listed.
In another category I have 3 articles and 2 subcategories, each with 3 articles.
On the main page and the categories widget, the count is 3, but when I click, I see all 8 articles.
This is the same on the main page. It shows the main category (2) and below I see 8 articles. Then I see again the other 2 categories, each with the 3 articles.
Basically, instead of showing only the main category (2) and below the 2 subcategories or at least, the 2 related articles, I see 3 categories on the main page as main categories.
It’s quite a mess.
I cannot attach images here. I could show you what I mean.

Hello, was planning on buying the plugin but having doubts because some buyers had valid issues that they posted here but obviously got answered privately by support mail. What about the complaints of user itelio , and a review of excessive unnecessary resource load…Any comment?
Whats weird, if you look at demo with Visual composer you see that it has breacrumbs, the other one doesnt. But the VC versions shows this: http://projects.bluewindlab.net/wpplugin/bkbm/knowledegebase/knowledegebase-category/copyright/ It shows you the contents of sub copyright. But….when click on item it shows: http://projects.bluewindlab.net/wpplugin/bkbm/knowledegebase/what-assets-can-i-use-in-my-items/ The cat copyright doesnt show..
Thanks for your interest

This is a pre-purchase question.
Our website has around 10-12 services and against each services, I want to bring the KB – 5 to 10 questions. I want the visitors to read and ask questions. They are also allowed to comment against any questions.
Does your plugin
1. Allows to add KB against each service/product?
2. Allows users to comment against the Questions? Which will be moderated and answered or deleted if irrelavent. (Moderation)
3. Allow users without login to comment?
Thanks for your questions.
1. Using shortcode you can place KB questions any where of your site.
2. In KB single page you can allow user to submit comments. (Theme comment support function required )
3. Yes, user can submit comment. (Theme comment support function required )
Can I create different KBs for different products?
Thanks for your question.
Note: You need to install KB Tab For WooCommerce – Knowledge Base Addon to use KB plugin for WooCommerce Product.Check addon video review-
I’m testing the plugin. Can you tell me how can I show also the subcategories on a main category page?
Like in your sample:
Right now, if I go to a category, I see all articles from all subcategories.
Maybe you can help.
Also, can you let me know how can I add breadcrumbs? Thank you.
Example page layout and breadcrumb built by following addon-
I bought it.
I’ll give it a try.
Hi, the sort functionality is not working. When I go into options, and sort the articles and save. it will not sort them on the front end.

Hi, after updating the Wordpress installation to 4.8.1 I get the error message: “Failed to load plugin url: http://intranet.wki.fraunhofer.de/wp-content/plugins/bwl-kb-manager/tinymce/bkb_tinymce_button.js"
This error message is displayed every time I want to edit a post or create a new one.
What can I do to fix that?
You’re support period has been expired. Please renew support period.
Would you please consider adding support for Google recaptcha? For this reason, I cannot purchase this plugin and must find an alternative.
Thanks for your idea.
Currently Math captcha is working fine. So, I’ve no plan to add Google recaptcha option.
I am using this plugin for so long and I still love it. You can build a database for nearly everything, not only lnowledge base.
But I habe an addon idea for your and I really really hope, that you will create this addon cause than you will absolutely create the most powerfill database platform for wordpress..
What I really miss for adding entries are custom fields (select, multiselect, checkbox, radio, text, number, etc.) along with group and repeatable field and repeatable field group feature.
Why? Well, its pretty easy.
You could build a database for absolutely everything… think of movies, recipes, things people can collect, listings, ads, coupons, etc.
With this, and some customizations in frontend and submission (displaying those fields in a list or table layout, using featured image before entries, etc), you can raise the power of KB knowledge base a lot.
I think of recipe for example:
custom repeatable field group for ingredients (amount, name, unit)
custom number field for cooking time
custom multiselect for cousine, method, and others
And than, think of filtering by these fields.
I know, KB Knowledge Base is a Knowledge Base Plugin. But I am pretty sure that there is a lot more power inside.
Maybe, you like this suggestions.. would love to build a database, where users can add with all data (not recipes for my concern^^)
