Creating the main Knowledge base page

BasePress comes with a SetUp wizard which will walk you through the main steps to get your knowledge base up and running. If you prefer to set the plugin manually your can follow the following instructions.

Before starting to use the Knowledge base you need to create a new standard page and insert the following short code: [basepress].
In this page you can place any content you like as for example an introduction to your knowledge base, with text images and any other element you need.

Just place the short code where you want the list of available knowledge bases to appear in the page.

Once the page is ready publish it and add a link to it in your menu of choice.
This will be the entry page to the knowledge base.

Once the page and menu link are ready head to the Settings page and select the page you just created from the select menu and save the settings.

At this point you can start to populate the knowledge base with your first product, its sections and articles.

The page we have just created will be used only when you use BasePress to create multiple knowledge bases. If you select “Single product mode” in the plugin’s settings this page will not be displayed but you still need to create it.
The permalink slug in this page will be used for all other pages in your knowledge base. You can set the slug to whatever suits best your website.
