Pixel Knowledge Base

How to display Knowledge Base Items in Posts

As of version 1.3.6 we added a new shortcode that you can use anywhere on your website.

Simply insert the id of the post you want to display or if you want to display multiple posts simply separate them by commas.


[pkb_item id=""]

How to set colours for a knowledge base category?

In version 1.3.3 we added a cool new feature that allows you to select colors for each of the knowledge base category. If a color is selected, each knowledge base item will have unique styling based on its categories settings.

To use this feature just follow these simple steps:

  1. Go-to WordPress Admin -> Pixel Knowledge Base -> Knowledge Base Categories
  2. From the category options select the color picker and choose a color
  3. Once a color has been selected, hit save. Check the front-end archive for the result

How Can Registered Users Submit Data from the Frontend?

In version 1.2 we added the ability to let users submit Pixel Knowledge Base answers from the front-end of the site but, How can you use this new feature?

All of the heavy lifting is being done by one single shortcode.

Simply create a new page, paste the above shortcode and save.

Submission Requirements

Due to security, we took the move to only allow logged-in users to submit new posts from the front-end of the site while giving you the fine grain control of choosing which roles can and cannot submit new items.

  1. User must be currently logged in
  2. You must select which roles can submit new posts from the plugins settings

What Template Actions Are Available?

While Pixel Knowledge Base is still in its infancy, we have tried to provide template actions for every possible view element allowing you or your developer to create a totally unique knowledge base.

Here is a complete list of all available template actions.

Output the breadcrumbs

add_action('pkb_render_breadcrumbs');

Output the searchbar

At current this is disabled on single pages but can be called any any other knowledge base template.

add_action('pkb_render_searchbar');

Output the knowledge base loop

add_action('pkb_render_loop');

Output the Category Post Boxes

add_action('pkb_render_cat_boxes');

Output the Knowledge Base Sidebar

add_action('pkb_render_sidebar');

To see these in action, head over to /wp-content/plugins/pixel-knowledge-base/templates/.

Note: Remember you can copy our templates from the same directory into your theme folder.

How to Create Custom Templates

By default, all templates are being loaded from our plugin directory. If you want to customize the way Pixel Knowledge Base looks and it cant be done with css you will need to copy our templates into your theme directory.

Templates can be found at

/wp-content/plugins/pixel-knowledge-base/templates/

Important! :: Do not copy the index.php file in the template folder, if you overwrite this in your theme file it will break your theme. Make sure you take a backup before making any theme changes.
