Summary of this Tutorial:
The first method is to use a wiki theme like KnowHow for your site.
Normally you would want to install WordPress on a subdomain/subdirectory depending on which you prefer.
Then install the KnowHow wiki theme and start adding the information.
The negative for this is your wiki is on a subdomain and the theme may not match your site’s design.
Your next option is a wiki plugin.
Install and activate the Knowledge Base plugin by pressapp.
Now there will be a knowledge base area in your dashboard.
Knowledge base uses custom post types and brands with your style and format for the most part.
It also has a voting system and drag and drop functionality but it does cost $20.
Finally you can use code to add a wiki to your site but you would want to backup your site should anything go wrong.
Then install and activate the Knowledgebase CPT plugin to create a custom post type to add information to.
Once we have some information filled out we’ll need to add some code to the functions.php to list them together.
Then you can create a page and add the shortcode to a page you want it displayed on.
