    Hi There,

    I'm looking for software that is easy to set-up and extend. I'm not very experienced in using WordPress, and I'm wondering if WordPress is a good solution to use as a knowledge base with at least these two features:
    - Login before getting access
    - Administrators can publish content/posts, based on user-level

    I know its powerful enough to do the 'basic' knowlegde base things such as rating posts list posts in different ways.

    1. login before getting access : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/restriction or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/restrict

    2. "Administrators can publish content/posts, based on user-level" need better explanation of that. A contributor can write and "submit for review" a post if that's what you are talking about...

    Hi MichaelH,

    Thanks for your reply. I want for each post to decide witch group of users is allowed to read it. But I think I already found it in this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-access-manager/

    "From now on the post/page is only accessible and writable for the specified group."

    I'm about to setup our knowledge base with WordPress, but I have still one question to be answered first. Is it possible to create profiles of users and finished project and make them searchable? I want these profiles to be shown next to search results of the posts (we call them articles because we're building a knowledge base). Is there a way to create such kind of profiles? Ore would you suggest to use regular posts for this, place them into a separate category and create its own search result next to the regular search results?

    I hope my explanation is clear enough..
