Quoting Frank Naude:
Would it be possible to hack WP into a FAQ/ Knowledge Base system, or are
there better products to use? This is what I would like to achieve:
First page must show a Yahoo-directory of category links. Drilling down must
show a Yahoo-directory of subcategories, and a listing of posts in that
Posts and categories should be listed in logical order -
'book-style'. I guess
this can only be achieved by entering a "sort key" to control Category/ Post
Any ideas/ pointers will be greatly appreciated!
You can manipulate WordPress to do anything you like, though the amount of
coding and tailoring involved will vary.
PHP-Nuke has a FAQ module and it its recent versions also contain the
encyclopaedia module which you can use as a knowledgebase.
Hope it helps,
PS - apologies for an answer that is not entirely WordPress-friendly, but I am
trying to be helpful based on /personal/ experience. I am sure somebody else
knows the plug-ins you can use to make WordPress suitable for the task
Alex King has used WordPress as a CMS several times in the past and
it. It's worth pursuing his notes on the topic.
