I searched the file I was told to look in and the name wasn't there. It seems Knowledge Base has it's  own file  KB.english.php in that place where I found the file I was told to change.

Great work on this awesome mod! :)

Does anybody know how to change the 'simple search' function so that it searches the body of each article instead of just the titles?

I can't figure out how to give members permission to add articles with out giving them the manage permission.  I have tried to add it through the categories, but that doesn't seem to work either. 
In case, I forget to say.  I am using 2.0.2

For a knowledge base only admins can write articles.

If you want an articles mod check out my SMF Articles mod.

I don't know if anyone else has had this error, or if it can be reproduced.

Quote
2: Illegal string offset 'name'
File: /../../../Sources/KB/KBView_All.php
Line: 73

line 73 is the last line in the snippet
Code: [Select]
    $list_options = array(
'id' => 'kb_know',
'title' => $catname['name'],

I'm only getting this error in my log when viewing a category parent (containing a sub category). But not when viewing either top level category with no subs, or a sub category.

I am starting to play with SMF Articles and SA Knowledgebase on a test site. Both by the same authors so I am combining this querry

First off, kudos for what I see as a great functional extension to a forum. I can see this as a useful feature for any on line community of practice, which is where I am heading in deploying SMF. 

It appears neither one can notify the forum there is a new article or KB items that has just been published. So this is either done manually via a dedicated "announcement board" or a user has to actually go via the respective menu to get to the index and see for themselves what is there

Am I missing a setting or is this simply not a feature?

Currently we do not have a notify feature for either modification at this time.

Thanks VBGamer and the entire SMGhacks team ---this is still a pretty good mod. I like to stay away from them because then the "core forum" gets more intricate and more things can go wrong---but these could change my mind

On my test site I simply created a new thread for Articles on a News Board, stickied the table of contents with links to the article, and I can create a news item for new articles....so no big deal. I was hoping I had not missed anything in the settings.

Ciao

I've not looked at the code but I'd guess that it wouldn't be too hard to hack a notify function into it.

Find the code that publishes the article and add an email trigger, or use the SMF API to place a PM into the admin's private message queue.

Actually, what I was hoping for was a notification similar to what you see in "latest posts" that appears next to the thread on the board list, and at the bottom of the forum.

But my manual work around does exactly that...plus I pin a post that has the an article table of contents where each entry links directly to the article.

Not a big deal to set up or maintain...

Is there a way for the knowledge base to be seen by guest ?

Thanks
