PHPKB 7.0 introduces a new and easier way to insert article links while creating or modifying a knowledge base article. Links to other articles are created using a specific syntax, called "link marker". This not only helps in keeping links organized but also makes the link management between articles easy. There is a new button on the WYSIWYG HTML Article Editor. For example, "Article A” is linked within the content of "Article B”, "Article C” and you try to delete Article A, the PHPKB software will not only warns you but also gives you the list of articles where there is a link to "Article A”. You can then decide either to keep the article A in the system or delete it forcefully.
The auto-save is a new feature that automatically saves a snapshot of your article automatically, helping to reduce the risk or impact of data loss in case of a session timeout, crash or freeze! This feature can be turned on/off from the settings page. The Auto-saving is done in predefined time interval which is configurable via the settings page of admin control panel. Apart from that, there is also an option to manually auto-save the work-in-progress by pressing CTRL+S keys while working in the WYSIWYG Editor. The 'Last Saved' duration is recorded and presented in real-time above the WYSIWYG editor as show below.
