Knowledge Base

I know that rt can use keywords and such, but I want to know if it or
anyone has it setup with a knowledge base or even a so called FAQ for
end-users.

Thanks,
Travis

If anybody could use my hacked-together code, i can post it in the
devel list.

Post it!

Responsible behavior is the result of a socialization process.

I guess we will all wait for the next release of RT and hope for the best on an upgrade. In the meantime, I will try stockanswers and see what it holds.

Hi All,

I was looking at the StockAnswers add-on, and don’t think that it will fit
my requirements for an end user knowledge base. I use RT as a tracking
system to support our end users, but I would like to integrate a knowledge
base/FAQ with RT.

Has anyone seen/done anything like this. Any ideas for other Web based
packages that can support this? They don’t necessarily have to plug into
RT.

Thanks,
Jamie

FAQ-o-Matic is a nice web administered FAQ system.

If you like all and sundry being able to edit your FAQ, yes indeedy.

However, if you’re after something with a bit more oomph behind it, such
as cross-linking, searches, a decent ACL system and integration with RT,
hang around until next week, when a beta version of the next RT/FM will be
released.

For a demonstration of its current incarnation, see
http://www.fsck.com/rtfm/ .

( Currently the holdup on the release is the main funder being a 'tad’
busy on other software, but I should have those installation bugs
cleared by monday )

While I’m glad to hear that a FAQ management system fully integrated
with RT is almost ready, you are glossing over the fact that FAQ-O-Matic
does actually have editor/admin authentication.

Oh and I will be checking out your FAQ system as I plan on integrating
one with RT as well. :slight_smile:

Will this faq system be deployed as a sepereate application which will plug
into rt or in the next release of rt (thus forcing me to upgrade since I
just got rt 2.0.15 to work with our environment?)

If you can’t wait for the new RT knowledgebase feature, you
may want to look at Twiki. It’s a bit feature rich for my
tastes but maybe it’s what you’re looking for:

RTFM 2.0 is an application built on the RT 3.0 Platform. It uses RT’s
authentication system, users, groups, acls, web server, database and
other infrastructure. It’s built to seamlessly integrate itself into RT
3.0’s user interface.

I’ve been hoping to make ht/dig combine the RT tickets and several other
data sources into one fast web search engine but haven’t tried it yet. Is
it likely to break anything to let the web spider portion push all the
buttons and follow all the links nightly as a read-only user?

Nifty, and exciting about the updates.

Just while checking it out, I noticed that the requirements list
postgresql 7.1.1 or higher. That should also say, NOT 7.3.0 or higher
until RT is suitable adjusted.

Who’s got perms to fix it?

Hrm. I personally wouldn’t point any search engine at the WebUI; theres
too many links to follow that would produce needless overhead on the WebUI
server, and it is possible to show the same information through multiple
links. Ugh.

As I remember it, you can tell ht/dig that ‘this’ URL is where it should
go to to index stuff, and ‘that’ URL is where it should tell people where
it came from. So, you can take Ticket/Display.html and a specific example
queue index page, and produce a special cut-down version for ht/dig so it
just indexes the ticket data, and not the other fluff that the WebUI has.

We use Twiki, and our pubs group uses their own web (“KB”) and a
TWikiPlugin called something like genhtml, which strips off the TWiki
chrome to make things suitable for publishing externally. Seems to work.
