This sounds like a very good idea. The mini kb mod that for long have been the only option lacks alot of stuff imo. A alternative to using mediawiki etc would be great.

Good luck

In the curent view setup, the articles are not visible inside a category. It would be nice if few articles of that particular category are visible on the main page under it. The articles to view on the main page can be controlled from ACP.

The post reply option was not working so can't view the commenting view there. :)

Bookmarked, :)

Cheers!!
