I was looking for a knowledge base plugin that supports multiple KBs and at the same time has separate taxonomies controls over different KBs' category slugs (that means I can use the same category slug names in different KBs because they belong to different custom taxonomies). I purchased BetterDocs Pro but it couldn't meet this need. Refunded BetterDocs Pro and turned to Echo KnowledgeBase. Works perfectly as I need it and provides tons of control in every aspect of the system. I believe it's a much more capable product than most other KB competitors on the market. There were some incompatibility issues with my current site builder but after reporting them, the developer addressed these issues and fixed them fairly quickly. Very responsive and effective support team! I've purchased many premium plugins and Echo KB is one of the best. Highly recommend it!

I'm a complete beginner with Knowledge Base, and we're setting it up for a non-profit organisation's website. The first 20 minutes, and I had the KB app looking and working with our template. We came across a small challenge and reached out to support. Echo Plugins support responded within 24 hours... a few emails to and from, and the challenge was swiftly resolved. Thank you Echo Plugins!

We tried a half-dozen knowledge base and help desk plugins. For our project, the best solution was the Echo Knowledge Base with the Basic Add-ons and related Creative Add-ons. Some of the functionality we like: the search tool is fast and accurate a tree-view of all categories and articles is available sub-categories are supported page-level table-of-contents widget floats along with each article can modify look of pages using either built-in editor or CSS styles The support has been top-notch. I've sent a few tech support emails to them, and they've all been answered within 24-48 hours. One was a bug-report, which they fixed and posted a new version in about a week (excellent). A few were enhancement requests, two of which they said they'd attempt to get to, and another they showed me a nice work-around for. In addition, they appear to be actively working on improvements to the product, which is important to the success of any software project.
