  • Wow @brajesh you really out did yourself! This theme is amazing! Congratulations!

    • Thank you Ben 🙂 That sure motivates to do better 🙂

      • @sbrajesh
        You are a hero! I wish someday I could be as good a web developer as you. I look up to you and you are super nice!
        The world needs more people like you. 🙂

  • OMG! This is AWESOOOOOOOOOOOME !!

    woot! thank you soooooooooooooo much @brajesh !!

  • Would it be possible to make this a plugin instead of a theme so that it can be added to existing websites instead of being a standalone website?

    • Thank you for asking.
      I created this theme to convert the entire WordPress install as a knowledge base system.

      Integration with existing site was a point I too considered, and That is very easy. As this theme can be turned as the child theme of your main theme. The only hiccup is it takes over the blog.

      It can be done as a plugin using custom taxonomies/post type, the only downside is we will loose all the awesome formatting.

      • Brajesh, I understand but you must realize that the demand for this as an addon is much larger than the demand for it as an website.

        There are so many sites out there that need a documentation section but very few that are just a documentation website.

        I know you’ve put a lot of work in this, and boy, does it ever show! I’m just pointing out that with one small change it would be even more useful and popular.

        Heck I’d even gladly pay for it as an addon.

        • @Wilson, I absolutely agree. @Baresh, this really is quite amazing, but I don’t see many people ditching their entire theme in order to make the switch. If it were available as a plugin / add-on I would also be happy to pay for it. 🙂
