1. You can probably do a database query or insert each record manually in the database.

Great! Worked like a charm!!! But I had to change the "Content" field from "TEXT" to "MEDIUMTEXT" because many of my document got "cut" before the end.

Quote2. That gets really complex normally for mods I generate a separate search page just for that mod.

I'm not really sure of having understood what you meant, but even before I asked I knew that was going to be a difficult request.

Thanks so much for taking the trouble to reply. You've been most helpful. Even if the "search" cannot be combined now at least I will be able to integrate my existing documents in my forum.

THANKS!!!

BUMP:

Is there anyone to put Knowledge base articles in my Simple Portal Frontpage?

Instead of using topics already made, I would like to use the articles in the knowledge base-to clarifiy.

Why not use the Portal pages?

Easier if you know at least some coding.

I have a Facebook page and want to use links on this page that redirect people to specific Knowledge Base articles.  However, when I copy and paste the link in a FB status box...and a user clicks it, it redirects them to the forum's homepage and not the article itself.

Is this an issue with the mod...or, is it the way Facebook handles external links?

a) I believe that  facebook chokes on one of the characters...  like ; & or ?
and b) did you make the KB available to guests?

This mod is great.
Many thanks !!
just got this question :
When I create a category and give it a title name, i can add <b>and </b> for example.
It will show correctly on the category overview page.
But it will not show up correctly once u clicked on the cat. Then the top title gives the code instead of the rendered bold text.

This is why normal topic titles can't be styled either I guess.
Now my question is : Can I edit the mods code so "bold" is a standard title style?

Kindred

yes.

#210
I can only find general a link code that i can edit.. Which makes it change on whole my forum..
There was not used any specific class for that title...
How could I solve this? Php? and where could I find it?

SA™

i think the part your looking for is

'title' => $catname['name'],

in kb_veiwall.php line 73

'title' => '<strong>'.$catname['name'].'</strong>',

Thanks but this change did not work. But yes that is what I mean :)
Also another question :p
Is it possible to make articles listed in alphabetical order by default?

Sure, you'd just need to change the ORDER clause in the sql (or add one if not present).

In the db at kb_articles i got the following :

MrMike

I'd guess that you'd want to change the query to ORDER by the "title" column.

ok I tried putting the query inside 'sql' and I get as a result the correct articles on alphabetic order. Which is good.

Now I want it to show on my forum.
So I need to change the query inside the kb code?? and where can I find that?

Thanks for the support already !!

SA™

KBVeiw_all.php

'default_sort_col' => 'kbnid',

replace with

'default_sort_col' => 'title',

your done  ;D
