KBPublisher can be extensively customized and you can get some spectacular results if you want to design your own site.
The default format of the KBPublisher Public Area is:
The standard header is controlled by the Header field.
Settings -> Public Area -> Common -> Header
Include the header by checking the Header field
Remove the Header by un-checking this field
If no header is assigned, a header is controlled by the Header title field,
Settings -> Public Area -> Common -> Header title
Likewise, the left menu is standard. The menu is controlled by the View Format field which is under Look & Feel,
Settings -> Public Area -> Common -> View Format
The menu choices are either Browseable or Left Menu.
Directly under the header are menu options and a breadcrumb trail.
The menu options, which are extra links which can be included in the menu, are displayed first. For example, you might want to include a "Home" link if the knowledgebase is part of a larger site.
The menus are controlled by the Extra links in navigation field
Settings -> Public Area -> Common -> Extra items in navigation
To include other links:
Add the title to be displayed on the page followed by a single pipe (|), then add the clickable URL
Additional links can be added separated by a double pipe (||)
Example: Home | http://www.yourhomepage.com || Support| http://www.yourhomepage.com/support.html
would display the following two links at the top of the page: "Home / Support".
The breadcrumb trail is displayed after any extra links. It reflects the article you are currently viewing in the knowledgebase.
The News area of this page is optional.
Settings -> Public Area -> Common -> News
Enable News Module controls whether or not news displays not on the Public Area home page
Number of news on index page sets how many news items are displayed
Display 'News' link in menu determines whether or not there is a menu option for news
This area will changed depending on "View Format". The main page will display knowledgebase categories, the most recent and the most popular articles.
Public Area -> Articles -> Recent articles, Public Area -> Articles -> Most viewed articles and Public Area -> Articles -> Category columns settings
