How to Customize Knowledge base article template?
To customize your template; first change your knowledge base settings. Go to the “Helpie Settings” on your website’s dashboard; you can find the Single page settings when you click the ‘Single Page’ menu. Here you have to change the Template Source from ‘Helpie Default Temple’’ to ‘Elementor Template’ and save the changes.
Add a New Template using the Elementor “Templates” on the dashboard. In the New Template, select the template type as “Single” and Post type as “Article”, give it a name you want and then click “Create Template”.
After you have created a New Template, it’s time to customize. You can change the default Fonts, Colours and Page Layout using Elementor. You have to add the elements “Post Title” and “Post Content” to display the Title and Contents of your knowledge base article.
Now you can add all other Elementor elements (widgets) that you want to show in your knowledge base article. You can also use Helpie’s widgets such as Table of Contents, Stats section, Category listing and Hero section into your template.
After adding all your customisations to the template, click the “Display Conditions” options using the arrow icon in the “Publish” button. Add a condition to include “All Articles” (as shown in the picture above) and then publish your template. Now you have successfully customised you knowledge base article page with Elementor.
