Hello, is it possible to let users post their own items thru frontend ? Thank you.
No not at current but I am sure with a little bit of time investment I could make it happen.
I would need more details about how exactly you would expect it to function.
Hello and thanks for your quick answer ! I’m building an intranet, from spare parts : Divi theme, then Ultimate member plugin, Event Manager plugin, and so on. I’m interested now in building a Wiki environnement, and for this, I need that any coworker be able to add and edit items into this Wiki, in accordance to different membership roles (I don’t want that anybody sees eveything). Some others plugins do that, But, I don’t know why, the one of yours seems more attractive. If you’re that motivated, maybe you could write a note to Ultimate Member devs, who are, I think, in a full commercial expansion, and are collecting third parties intergation plugins. Nobody has proposed, for now, a Wiki/kowoledge plugin that would be fully “membership compliant”. Sorry fro approximative english
But the eventual collaboration with Ultimate Member is not that essential for me. My need for now is very simply to let users post their items thru front end.
From what it sounds like you want a form that allows user to upload their own articles from the frontend BUT only if their user role allows it?
I could integrate this I am sure, if the ultimate member plugin just adds extras roles to use, you would easily be able to select them.
Yes, that’s it. They should be able to create a specific wiki post (I suppose that behind your Pixel knowledge base items, their is a post), then edit it if need.
The aim is that if I’m connected as, for example, a Guest, I do not see any “create wiki post” or “edit post” button. But if I’m connected as “active member”, then I see them.
I’m not a developper, so I don’t know if this is possible to do without any collaboraiton with ultimate member.
I have an update in the queue which will fix a permalink bug when you activate the plugin however, if you are happy to put in a purchase I will add this to the top of the feature request list..
Can have it done in next couple of days.
Thank you. I’m just checking the market and will keep an eye on PkB of course.
We are mid process now getting the form working, sanitized and validated and will push v1.2 which comes with a frontend submission form / shortcode..
v1.2 is waiting to be approved an includes front-end submissions. Users must be logged in otherwise they will be faced with a notice.
Full control over which roles see the form and who doesn’t.
Hi, I just bought PKB. It looks like there’s a problem to activite it. I tried 4 times, but everything freezes when my browser is set to “*.com/wp-admin/plugins.php?activate=true&plugin_status=all&paged=1&s=”. Any idea ?
And my website is down. So I’ve deleted the whole PKB thru FTP, and now the site is accessible back again, but of course there’s no more PKB… Maybe something wrong in your files ?
Give me an email and we will take a look at what is going on for you.
Hey Andy, thank you a hundred times. Things are perfect now. Your plugin is wonderful, but most : you’re a huge support man. Didn’t expect you work that hard on my system remotly, This is even better that the problem did’nt come from your product… Thanks again, great plugin, huge support !
Hi, I voted an article 11 times is there a way to limit a single vote per IP?
Whoops! I will get a cookie and localStorage set to stop people voting more than once and push an update later today for you ok?
I am mid flow on this fix now, if you can email me via the support form I will get a copy of this plugin sent over to you directly.
It can take up to 24 hours to approve plugin updates by Envato.
We have submitted an update which stops users up or down voting more than once.

Hi, I have not purchased your item, I was just making reference to what I noticed about it on the demo.
No sweat its fixed anyway
I’m looking for a good Wiki-Plugin for wordpress to use it as an encyclopedia on my website. So I’ve few questions regarding this plugin:
- Does it have History & Revision functionality?
- Is there a front end editor to make new wiki entrys?
- Is it possible to make multiple knowledgebases (standalone wikis)?
- Are there any future plans for a comment-system and Tagging-system?
- Futhermore maybe any plans for advance moderation functionality for wiki entries?
Sorry for the many questions and I know the questions are referencing a lot to a full Wiki-system but I’m very interested in a Wiki-Plugin for my wordpress website and this plugin looks nice on the first impression.
Thanks in advance.
1.You can submit from the frontend (but must restrict by role)
2.No revision / history
3.No frontend editor….see answer one
you can build custom templates and easily add in comments if you like no problems. We have plans for more features but at current a little busy launching another plugin.
This is more of a knowledge base than a wiki clone.
Just a follow-up, I have added these features to the feature request list.
If you can hold on a few days I may be able to get post revisions, history, comments and tags developed and released.
The front-end editor would take me a little bit more time to get done.
Thank you for the fast and informative reply. I really appreicate it and happy to hear your plans. If the features will be released in the future then I’d like to use and integrate it in my website. I’ll stay tuned.
No problems, its still an infant plugin and always on the look out for improvements.
1. It there any shortcode to display the article lists under categories?
2. Can we make the ajax loading to work only in subcategories and list articles in the top level category.
Why I am asking this is because, in my opinion the AJAX loading is redundant to me while I was trying to figure out what was going on. It’s like someone visits the knowledge base page and has to go through so much content and not just the article titles, they will quickly lose interest.
3. Also, does template updates work like WooCommerce?
You can copy the default templates into the theme directory and layout the knowledge base as you want which means you can place the categories above or below the articles list.
you could even remove the sidebar all together if you wished.
How can I place the categories ? Is there any shortcode or do I have to do it via the templates?
At current its all done by over riding the templates. The following two links might be of help to you;
1. Override the default templates used:
2. Available developer / template actions.
1. Is there any ETA on shortcode support ?
2. And just for the templates, is the category output handled using any custom function ?
3. By category do you mean the sidebar which lists only categories or the ones at the bottom which lists the articles under each category ?
We are currently very busy trying to finalize a theme for release but do have shortcodes on the features list.
You can make the knowledge base look however you want and move anything you want using the template overrides.
Thanks, I have been checking other plugins on the marketplace. But I think I will buy yours. Also, I will build a theme using this too for my own theme documentation.
Thanks! if we are missing something essential, just let us know and we will get it sorted!
It would be great to see themes based on our plugin.
I have moved shortcode development to the front of the line and will have it sorted in the next week or so.
Hey about the front end submission of articles by site visitors, do the articles that they create get published immediately, or do we have some sort of control over them?
Please update the .pkb-item h3 selector in css to .pkb-item .entry-title because it is conflicting with knowledgebase content h3 tags.
1. Please see the settings for submission control, should be a setting to allowed whether to set them as a draft or post.
2. Added to the list, will have it sorted
Hey I cannot change the knowledgebase slug. I have updated the permalinks and re saved them. But it is not working.
I will add it to the list and have it looked at. Seems strange as we have changed on our demo website.
We will take a look tomorrow, its late here in the UK now.
- PixelBin Supprt
I just checked the version currently on CodeCanyon and the knowledge base slug is changing fine for me this end.
We would not recommend changing it after you have setup your site.
Update pushed to fix css conflict
Getting a fatal error message on a fresh install.
Please use the support form for all support requests.
Can you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org please with the error code.
- Pixelbin Support
EDIT: Just installed on a fresh server and not having any errors this end, please email us with a screenshot of the error and we will investigate
Hello, is this compatible when VC is used ? (i mean code or css conflicts)
Three is no conflicts with Visual Composer that we are aware of however, if you find something please feel free to let us know using the support form.

Presale question: Does the plugin offer a way to display a “table of contents” for the currently displayed article/document?
Currently no, but what I can do is add a block underneath each post that gets the latest N amount of posts from the current posts category?
I could also add the option to enable or disable in the options panel.
- PixelBin Support
I have some pre-purchase questions:
1) Can you tell me please if the comments on each FAQ/Question are separate from the regular WP blog posts comments?
2) I do not wish to use front end submission; can this be turned off?
3) Can I remove all styles so that I can use my own to match my theme?
Apologies its taken so long to reply!
1) They use the integrated comments system from WordPress however they are 100% separate from blog comments IE, they will not be mixed.
they can be replaced with other comments plugins if you wish.
2. By default front end submissions can be disabled; Its only enabled and accessible if you enable it in the options panel.
3. There is absolute bare styles attached to the plugin, there is currently no options to disable the plugin styles however I will make an update for this to be possible before the weekend.
Until then you can pop this in your functions.php file to disable them.
/* disable the plugin css /
/ remove the barebones bootstrap grid */
- PixelBin Support
Thank you. This plugin sounds perfect for what I need. Could you elaborate a little more on the comments please. Do they sit under a different menu item?
No they do not sit under a different menu item, they will display in the same area in the backend of the website under comments.
To preserve the WordPress way of doing things and making sure people can use any comments plugin, it was the only way I could tackle them.

Hi I bought another plugin wiki but it does not work with WPML. I must buy new.I have question. Does your plugin work properly with WPML.
As i am aware and our testing, yes our plugin is compatible with WMPL. If you face any issues just give us a nudge and we will resolve the issue.
pre-sale question… I need to build a WIKI that will allow me to assign a page or group of pages to a specific person who will be able to edit those pages or create a new page. Is that possible with this plugin?
This is currently not achievable with our plugin.

I have a couple pre-sales questions:
You state “Knowledge Base Categories with 1/2/3 or 4 columns Per Row”, but the live demo only has an (in my opinion) annoying single column layout with all questions and answers listed underneath each other, using some sort of lazy loading slide-in effect. Is there a demo showing the column lay-outs?
Is there a category grouping option for the ‘knowledge base homepage’?
Can the questions be listed without the answers, requiring the user to click through to the answer, basically like every other FAQ/Knowledge base?
Can answers be styled with images, links and embedded video?
Is the search function limited to English content or doesn’t it matter what language the articles are written in?
“Restrict Knowledge Base Categories by any role” does this mean content gets hidden from users if their roles restrict content?
Is the search function intelligent enough to recognize role-based restrictions of categories and articles? I.e. will the search hide content the user doesn’t have access to?
The demo only shows limited functionality atm as we are tied up with another product launch however I will do my best to answer your questions.
1. You state “Knowledge Base Categories with 1/2/3 or 4 columns Per Row”
There is an option in the backend that allows you to show items by category at the bottom of the knowledge base, you can select to show 1, 2, 3 or 4 columns and up-to 4 categories to display.
2. Is there a category grouping option for the ‘knowledge base homepage’?
The Knowledge base come as is, we did however add custom template support by default without having to make you buy another plugin so you can easily customize the templates and ‘group’ stuff as you wish.
3. Can answers be styled with images, links and embedded video?
Absolutely, all content inside the answers uses the WordPress built in WYSIWYG editor, so you can insert just about any content or shortcode you want.
... You could even activate Visual Composer for this post type and style content with that as well.
4. Is the search function limited to English content or doesn’t it matter what language the articles are written in?
Its not restricted by language, it queries the database so will return your posts no matter the language they are in
5. “Restrict Knowledge Base Categories by any role” does this mean content gets hidden from users if their roles restrict content?
This means that, if you setup this option on a knowledge base category, and the user is not logged in or they are logged in but their current role does not match the role required, the system will simply not load the content at all and show a placeholder template – you can edit this template using our custom template support
6. Is the search function intelligent enough to recognize role-based restrictions of categories and articles? I.e. will the search hide content the user doesn’t have access to?
Well that is an amazing idea, something we don’t currently have however, I have just added this to feature request list with high priority!
I hope that clears up any questions you may have.
If there is anything else feel free to come back to us,

really cool ! i wish you all the best for your sales
Thanks very much! Same for you also
Hello hope all is well, we would like to create a site where people can submit their questions from the front-end for free but to see the answer they have to pay
is there a way we can do that with your plugin ?
You can restrict categories based on ‘roles’.
So, if you have a role for instance called ‘Paid subscriber’ then you could set up the knowledge base to only show certain categories (and their posts) to that ‘role’. This would essentially allow you to pair this plugin up with a subscription based plugin and restrict access as you need.
Hope that makes sense
thank you for your kind reply, is there anyway to see how users can publish questions ? do they have to register to submit a question or can they submit a question without registering ?
as for the membership based plugin is there anyone in particular that you recommend ?
Anyone can submit a question but we can help you modify the plugin to suit your themes needs based on our hourly hiring rate.
As for a membership plugin, 95% of them should work so you should be ok there.
Hello again, would it be possible for us to buy an extended license and reuse your plugin in one of our themes in themeforest?
Hi, how can i activate the submit on the frontend? For now i have some roles selected that they can submit an item, but i cant see the option in the frontend
You can find the documentation here: http://kb.pixelbin.com where you can find all the information you require to get frontend submissions setup.
All the best,
Great Start for a KB-Plugin! Looking forward to getting KB-Posts when I just click on the preview-Results or hit “Enter” just once in the big search bar.
Thanks for the feedback Lifetrust, I have noted the feature recommendation and will aim to get it integrated in a future release.
All the best
Dear PixelBin, I am interested in trying the plugin out. I want to know if it works with the Divi builder. Is there any way I can access a limited version of the plugin to see its full range of functions? Failing that can I have admin access to your test site to see how it works and what the settings are? Thanks.
Thanks for the message. Unfortunately, we do not support Divi builder.
That’s too bad! Is it because your plugin uses custom post types? Ideally it would be great to create a template in Divi and have it be used as a template for all the knowledgebase articles … do you think this could be possible? I am willing to buy to test it out if you are able to provide conservative support …
Yes its because we use custom post types. You might be able to access the articles via a custom post type widget in Divi maybe but cannot be sure as I have personally never used it before.
All the best,
HI,can user upload image in the frontend?
No not at current but could definitely add the feature in.
