Knowledge Base with new forum software?

Post by hans-j?rgen » Thu Oct 20, 2005 10:55 pm

It seems that the 2005 version of phpBB is able to provide a knowledge base. The Hofner Hounds forum uses the same software as this one, and they have activated a module which shows up in the links on the top of the page. As it's brand new, the site admin hasn't examined this option any further yet, so I don't know if it could be some kind of Wiki that each forum user can edit. But it would be one possibility to summarize some FAQs in a central place where newbies could have a look.

They also provide some user groups with that software, i.e. for archtop, solid body, acoustic H?fner guitars etc. which could be useful here, too (e.g. Love Rock users, Strat users and so on). Also interesting is the the photo album, but would cost additional web space on the hosting server.
