@manyroads - I took a quick tour of your knowledgebase site and was impressed with the quality of the content. I do, however, see a potential problem; what I see of your current organization would not seem to be able to scale up to a decently large number of articles. Maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture, but how do you plan to handle things when you have, for example, hundreds of articles in a given category?
The knowledge base is really my personal thing. I'm not doing this for anyone but me and my readers. :lipsrsealed:

However, if you want to see my real work (again solo)... here's my 100+GB Genealogy site: http://many-roads.com It is also simply a knowledgebase. :bagoverhead:

Those fonts are embedded in the theme. I do not write my themes. The one you see is penscratch-2 from the people at wordpress. Sadly there are so many variants and uses of standards in the browser world, I find it impossible to please everyone, I just can't. :rolleyes:

Announcement: Hello all. I had to drop the plugin I was using for my KB due to the fact that it is no longer supported (effective Dec 2018). :sad: I also discovered that the KB plugin does not allow the standard Wordpress Search function to access the KB pages. :rolleyes: As a result...

I rewrote everything and am now just using simple Wordpress pages with two plugins for Document sorting and presentation. The new records are fully accessible via the standard Site Search. :crossfingers:

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Here's the (revised-rewritten) KB : http://eirenicon.org/knowledge-base/

Nice that you change the list format to tab, more visible and easier to navigate.

Thank you @dreamer @rasat. I'm still working at getting additional bits of my knowledge database online & available.
