GD Knowledge Base Pro 5.0 Beta #2

The Second Beta version of the upcoming GD Knowledge Base Pro 5.0 is now available, continuing the work from the previous Beta. And, the new Demo website is now online to showcase the new plugin, including the use of blocks.

You should check the previous post about the first Beta version to get more information about the upcoming release. Also, there is a new demo website created using the latest Beta of the plugin, and all data for the demo is generated with the DemoPress plugin. GD Knowledge Base Pro includes support for DemoPress, and it can generate knowledge base-related content.

The demo website uses WordPress 5.8 with the Block Editor powered Widgets panel, and all widgets related to GD Knowledge Base Pro, are added as blocks, no legacy widgets are used.

This is a Beta release, and it might contain bugs or unfinished features! Do not use it on live websites! This version is made for testing purposes on staging or development websites only. This version requires PHP 7.0 or newer and WordPress 5.1 or newer. For Blocks, plugin requires WordPress 5.6 or newer, and for older versions, blocks will not be loaded.

The focus of the new Beta version is improvements to blocks, including fixes to many problems with blocks initialization in some cases, expanding block settings, and improving code organization for most of the blocks.

Improved blocks in Beta #2

The new version also includes many more fixes and improvements to various other features, including ratings, widgets, lists rendering, and much more. In the next two weeks, more testing will be completed, one or two new Beta versions will be released, and a stable version is expected later this month.

As usual, please report any issues you may find with the new beta, especially related to migration from previous stable versions, problems with theme templates compatibility, and anything else really.
