What users say about weDocs

“Really love the system for adding posts. Wish all of WP had this kind of editor. The doc features are just enough, and it’s a good starting point to develop with.”- jdh1178

“We are very happy with the plugin so far. Here, many corners and edges were thought of as extensible. That is super.” – Pixelbart

“The plugin is very easy to use. It makes creating the documentation quite easy. It also displays them with a reasonable appearance. The documentation is also very straightforward. It also does not bother you with “rate us” notifications. I highly recommend it.” – turzifer

“This documentation system is just perfect for my needs. It can be understood quickly (by the developer), it is for multiple products, and for each, I can write articles and sub-articles. All is correctly placed into the URL by Slugs. I’d just desire a bit more configuration—some visual design. But I can do this with CSS, and out-of-the-box this plugin is doing its task perfectly. I can even write articles using Elementor, and it displays fine. Also, a search box would be nice to have. Thank you!” – User ID

“In one word: amazing. This plugin does what it says. I encountered no problems and found it extremely easy to work with. I recommend this to anyone who wants to set up solid product documentation.” – User ID

What is Appsero

weDocs uses Appsero SDK to collect some telemetry data upon user’s confirmation. This helps us to troubleshoot problems faster & make product improvements.

Appsero SDK does not gather any data by default. The SDK only starts gathering basic telemetry data when a user allows it via the admin notice. We collect the data to ensure a great user experience for all our users.

Integrating Appsero SDK DOES NOT IMMEDIATELY start gathering data, without confirmation from users in any case.

Learn more about how Appsero collects and uses this data.

I have tried different Docs plugins for Wordpress. This is simply the best. Pros: 1. Easy to use 2. Light-weight. This is extremely important. Some search engines will put limit on the page size. I used other Docs plugins, which add heavy codes to each page. The result is a huge penalty on the website ranking. 3. Multiple docs support.

I would have left 4-5 after testing your plugin if you were more upfront on the repo. Please indicate wedocs is not compatible with any translation plugins such as Polylang. Also please mention that your kb isn't built-up/coded with SEO in mind. This would be nice for other user on the look out so we can all save time 😉 best wishes
