[DEV] Knowledge Base (2.0)

Post by KaileyT »

Extension Name: Knowledge Base (2.0)
Author: kinerity

Extension Description: An extension for phpBB that adds a Knowledge Base module to your phpBB installation.
Extension Version: [DEV] 2.0.x

Requirements: TBD

Features:
  • All the features from version 1.0.x
  • Attachments in articles
  • Preview in posting
Screenshots: n/a

Demo URL: https://www.project-w.org/community/kb/index (still runs 1.0.x)
Demo Username: n/a
Demo Password: n/a

GitHub Repository: https://github.com/kinerity/knowledgebase
Extension Download: n/a

Looking at doing a new version for this extension. I haven't started coding anything yet since I have very little spare time for the next few months, so repo pushes will be few and far between.

That's already in v1. Does it not work for you? Are you referring to something else?

That sounds more like a full fledged forum (like phpBB) than a knowledge base, but that's maybe just me...? :)

no no, vote up / down is to show whether the article was useful or not, commenting system is always welcome to discuss or add feedback

actually for me phpbb itself should officially release their KB

A simple workaround for that is a dedicated forum used as a KB.
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Thank you for pointing that out, but please post issues with 1.0.x in the CDB support section. This topic is specifically for 2.0.x which, as of right now, very little code has been wrote for it. ;)
