Installation

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of DocsPress, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type DocsPress and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our DocsPress plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

FAQ

Initialize JS after AJAX page loaded

If you need to initialize some JS after ajax loaded, you may use DocsPress > Settings > Single Doc > AJAX custom JS section or use predefined custom event docspress_ajax_loaded:

jQuery( document ).on( 'docspress_ajax_loaded', function() {
    // your code here.
} );

I tried all the expensive bloated knowledge base plugins with fancy UIs, setup wizards, 1000s of styling options etc and nearly gave up until I found DocsPress - it just works. It picks up the theme style and I was writing documentation 10min after installing, instead of trying to work out the 1000s of styling options of the other KB plugin. Thank you for creating this, and please consider adding a donation link so I can support this project.
