Current Theme vs KB Theme

You are here:

Template Choice

Depending on the theme your using, each theme will display certain elements and output certain styling. In some situations this is a desired choice in others it is not. We provide two possible solutions. 
Current Theme – Which basically let’s your theme do all the styling and layout placement. This means that if your theme wants to control the width of the article page or add blog sidebars it might do this in the Knowledge base.

Knowledge Base Theme ( KB Theme ) – We try to remove all elements that are not KB related and only show KB elements. This means we try to make the articles expand further on the page and do not display blog sidebars. ( Note: Our Article pages do provide their own sidebars , please this article on the display structure. ( Click here to read about that )

Knowledge Base Theme

Display below shows you each three main areas as an example ( Main page , Article page and Category Archive page )

First to activate this option, go to the Global Wizard -> Other Step -> Template Choice -> Choose Knowledge base Theme and save.

KB Theme - Main Page Example

This is how the Main page can look like. Here you can see the search bar expands the whole width of the website.

KB Theme - Article Page Example

This is how the Article page can look like. Here you can see how wide the article is, we have set these values in the article page settings. 

KB Theme - Category Archive Page Example

This is how the Category Archive page looks like, if you choose the KB Theme option, we provide 5 different styles in the features wizard settings to choose from.

Current Theme

Display below shows you each three main areas as an example ( Main page , Article page and Category Archive page )

First to activate this option, go to the Global Wizard -> Other Step -> Template Choice -> Choose Current Theme and save.

Current Theme - Main Page Example

This is how the Main page can look like. Here you can see a few differences for example:

1. The top area has a purple box with the title Knowledge base this is the theme heading. This is added by the theme.

2. The Left and Right white areas beside the Main page KB. This is extra space because the theme is controlling the KB main page content width.

Current Theme - Article Page Example

This is how the Article page can look like. Here you can see what the theme has added to the article page.

1. Top purple box with title ( Theme heading )

2. Blog sidebar added 

3. Article Page which includes the sidebars and center content is put inside the themes content area. Making it look very small. 

Current Theme - Category Archive Page Example

This is how the Category Archive page looks like, in most cases the theme will make the category archive page look like a blog category archive page, this is common practice as the theme will style it like WordPress archive page. In this example you can see how different the article list styling is and the theme has added a blog sidebar as well. The top area once again has the purple heading.
