FAQ

What is Appsero

weDocs uses Appsero SDK to collect some telemetry data upon user’s confirmation. This helps us to troubleshoot problems faster & make product improvements.

Appsero SDK does not gather any data by default. The SDK only starts gathering basic telemetry data when a user allows it via the admin notice. We collect the data to ensure a great user experience for all our users.

Integrating Appsero SDK DOES NOT IMMEDIATELY start gathering data, without confirmation from users in any case.

Learn more about how Appsero collects and uses this data.

The archive page structure is different from WordPress standard. No Search result page feature. Customized, but less functionality WordPress Admin module. I am developer user, and I was able to customize these to work with WordPress Coding Standard. However, most users are hard to use this, when taking care of seo and site design.

I want to thank Tareq for this great plugin. I compared multiple knowledge plugins with the following requirements: - easy to use - separate document type - compatible with wordpress search - compatible with wordpress language plugin weglot In the end I decided to choose wedocs and I am super happy with it. I managed to create a beautiful looking knowledge base in multiple languages. Thanks again and keep on going. Best regards Christoph

I don't know where to start expressing my excitement about this plugin. I guess I should start thanking Tareq Hasan for providing it for free. I am a developer myself and I know how much work, blood and sweat goes into such thing. Kudos! weDocs is intuitive to use. A few clicks and you have your first documentation online. Digging more into it reveals a lot of possibilites to adjust it to your needs. When I first started using it I made a little blog post about how it grew on me. In that post I talked about CSS adjustments I did. Tareq's recent release of version 1.6.0 now offers even more beauty for the front-end. I just love this plugin and during my use of it I though about two improvements that would make this already great plugin even a tad better. It would be great if the styles that come with wweDocs were editable on the settings page. When adding a new section to a Doc, or a new page to a section, an order number is assigned to it. Via these order numbers you can influence the order of the pages in a section, or the order of sections in a Doc. The automatically created numbers start with 1 and each new object adds +1. In more than one case I ran into the need to reorder the sections or pages. I had to edit all pages to enter thew new order numbers. My suggestion: Start with 100 and for each new section or page, add +100. You then have an initial sequence of 100, 200,300 and so on. That makes it very easy to edit a section or page and change the order number to let's say 250 to move it in between 200 and 300. In any case, 5 stars are more than deserved for weDocs! Best regards, George PS: Tareq, I accidentally clicked away the metrics collection request after installing 1.6.0. Is there any way to acitvcate it still?
