In many markets the know how of a company is the foundation of its economic health.
The general concepts of the WordPress framework are brought into practical context by explanaitions in the context of an exemplary knowledge management system architecture:
- the use and configuration of plugins,
- the encapsulation of new reusable functionality in plugins,
- and adding functionality to the WordPress theme using a child theme (code snippets).
The exemplary architecture uses:
- the current WordPress core v4.0,
- the current CMS-compatible WordPress theme KnowHow v1.1.6 by Chris Mooney (Hero Themes),
- and many current CMS-related WordPress plugins.
