Creating Templates Using Child Theme

If you want to heavily customize KB Article pages and/or KB Category Archive pages then you can use WordPress template files to overide output of the pages. This option is suitable for PHP/CSS/HTML developers.
To override the KB Article and Category Archive pages you need to first setup a child theme and make required changes to the child theme templates. You can read more about child themes in WordPress here.

We have developed a very basic child theme that demonstrates the ability to create your own custom templates. This child theme is based on the Hello Elementor theme. Note that you do not need Elementor plugin to use this theme.

The structure is based on WordPress Template structure, your theme might have chosen a different way to display it. If that is the case you will need to learn that theme and how it works. We do NOT provide support for this level of customization.

Here is the article you need to follow: Template Hierarchy and you will need to coordinate with your theme company if you want help with their template structure.

This child theme is a proof of concept that shows you it is possible to create Knowledge base templates, but it will take a PHP developer who is familiar with WordPress to understand how to make it work between the KB and the theme you have chosen.

Make sure you have

  1. Backed up your website or test this on your staging site
  2. Hello Elementor Installed
  3. Hello Elementor Child theme Installed and activated.
  4. Echo Knowledge based Installed and activated
  5. Then load the front end of the KB to see the custom HTML examples. ( Highlighted in Yellow )
  6. Switch Between Current theme or KB Theme options in the Global Wizard to see which template works best for you.
