Note: This feature is available only in the Enterprise Editions of PHPKB software.

Protected articles feature allows you to make some the articles of your knowledge base private, so that only logged in users can view them. This gives you the control who can see the contents of your knowledge base. There are a load of reasons you might want to protect your articles from public view, whether you’re using your articles internally to train staff, or you wish to share some information with your resellers.

Public Articles
01 PUBLIC ARTICLES

Public articles don't require any login and are accessible to all users.

Public Articles
02 PROTECTED ARTICLES

These articles are posted under public categories and are accessible only to the logged in users.

Public Articles
03 PRIVATE ARTICLES

Private articles are accessible to logged in users having access to user-groups.

The protected articles differ from private because of the ease they give to admin users in sharing information. The administrators can share the information that is private but common for all just by turning on the protected attribute of an article. However, user specific private information can be shared with the help of user-groups in the form of private articles.

How to make articles protected?

Making an article protected in the knowledge base is very easy. Just toggle the protected button ON in the admin area and PHPKB software will handle the rest.

Accessing a Protected Article?

To access a protected article, a user must log in to knowledge base. Once a user is logged in, protected articles are visible wherever present in the knowledge base, such as in category tree, recently added articles, featured articles, search results, auto-suggestions etc.

Protected Articles and Search Engines

Search engines are unlikely to crawl them because this only happens if a search engine can find them. To index the protected article, the search engine needs the login credentials which is not possible.
