ProcessWire Knowledge Base site profile

Rudimentary site profile for CMS/CMF ProcessWire in early development. In contrast to most established wiki/knowledge base solutions wiki-articles are set in a hierarchical way.


Before running the installer of ProcessWire copy/replace


with the folders from this repo.


  • ProcessWire 2.4


It's not possible to export user roles with ProcessWire's Site Export Module this profiles templates are checking just whether they are accessed by an anonymous or logged in user.


  • Tagging of wiki-articles
  • Set articles to globally sticky ( = for all users)
  • Personal bookmarking of articles for logged in users
  • When using markdown to author wiki-articles, code highlighting via highlightjs

Included modules


In need for a light knowledge base software and not happy with solutions such as MediaWiki, Dokuwiki or Confluence I decided to build such a tool based on ProcessWire. At the moment this profile is lacking of features, but doing well in the context it is created for - a somewhat protected simple knowledge base for internal use.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
