WP KB Articles

Description

This plugin is VERY simple; NO configuration options necessary.

This plugin adds a new Post Type. This plugin makes it SUPER easy to create KB Articles (as a separate Post Type in WordPress). This is a very lightweight plugin (for now). In the future we may add some additional functionality for KB Article integrations w/ other plugins.

After installing this plugin, create a new KB Article (find menu item on the left in your Dashboard). KB Articles are just like any other Post, except they have a different classification so that themes/plugins may identify KB Articles and/or separate them from other Posts.

FAQ

Who can manage KB Articles in the Dashboard?

By default, only WordPress® Administrators can manage (i.e. create/edit/delete/manage) KB Articles. Editors and Authors can create/edit/delete their own KB Articles, but permissions are limited for Editors/Authors. If you would like to give other WordPress Roles the Capabilities required, please use a plugin like Enhanced Capability Manager.

Add the following Capabilities to the additional Roles that should be allowed to manage KB Articles.

$caps = array
        (
            'edit_kb_articles',
            'edit_others_kb_articles',
            'edit_published_kb_articles',
            'edit_private_kb_articles',
            'publish_kb_articles',
            'delete_kb_articles',
            'delete_private_kb_articles',
            'delete_published_kb_articles',
            'delete_others_kb_articles',
            'read_private_kb_articles'
        );

NOTE: There are also some WordPress filters integrated into the code for this plugin, which can make permissions easier to deal with in many cases. You can have a look at the source code and determine how to proceed on your own; if you choose this route.
