Knowledgebases, wikis, and FAQs are ideal methods of sharing useful information with your customers, users, peers, or staff members, and I’ve found a number of WordPress themes and plugins to help you easily create a database people can use to find the answers to their questions.
Many of these themes are designed for people who want to create a WordPress site dedicated solely to sharing information, while a lot of the plugins are made for users who want to add a knowledgebase, wiki, or FAQ section to their existing website or blog. Whether you want to create a standalone wiki, knowledgebase, or FAQ site, or you simply need to add a compilation of questions and answers to your website or blog, one of these WordPress themes or plugins should meet your requirements.
