Updated Articles Widget

Our Recently Updated Articles widget allows you to display articles that have recently updated content. This will increase your readers' engagement and the your ability to get them the most updated answers they need. Your home page is an excellent place to add this widget.

How Does It Work?

It's as simple as placing a merge code where you would like this informaiton to be displayed! KnowledgeOwl will search behind the scenes for the most updated articles. Updated articles are determined by the Last Modified on date at the bottom of each article. 

Setup

Setting this up is easy! The below merge code is almost all you need.

[template("up-articles")]

Add the Recently Updated Articles Widget to All Articles

You can place the updated articles merge code in the HTML of all articles. Go to Settings > Style > Custom HTML and select Article. You can place the merge code after the article body merge code or in the hg-article-footer div.

Either of these locations will display at the bottom of each article.

You'll probably also want to add a header to display above the updated article links as well and perhaps a div with a class so that you can style the updated articles widget.

Something like the following should do:

<div class="updated-articles">
 <h3>Updated Articles</h3>
 [template("up-articles")]
 </div>

Add the Recently Updated Articles Widget to Individual Articles

If you only want to display the updated articles widget in certain articles you can place the updated article merge code at the bottom of individual articles. To do so, edit the article and click the Source button in the top right of the editor toolbar.

Scroll to the bottom of the article and paste the merge code.

You'll probably also want to add a header to display above the updated article links as well and perhaps a div with a class so that you can style the updated articles widget.

Something like the following should do:

<div class="up-articles">
 <h3>Updated Articles</h3>
 [template("up-articles")]
 </div>

Add the Recently Updated Articles Widget to the Right Column of Your Knowledge Base

Finally, you might decide to display the Updated Articles Widget in the right column of your knowledge base. This column was designed just for this kind of content!

To do so go to Settings > Style > Custom HTML and select Right Column and paste the merge code.

You'll probably also want to add a header to display above the updated article links as well and perhaps a div with a class so that you can style the updated articles widget.

Something like the following should do:

<div class="updated-articles">
 <h3>Updated Articles</h3>
