I haven't been very actively involved with this plugin or the Redmine community as a whole lately, but it would seem there is a very active user-base still logging bugs and enhancing this project.

I'm pushing out version 3.2 of the plugin thanks to the efforts of some very dedicated community members, who I'd like to highlight below:

Thanks to Frederico Camara:

  • updating acts_as_rated to work with Redmine 3.2.x

Thanks to Eduard Kuleshov:

  • getting this plugin supported in Redmine 3.0.x

Thanks to Axel Kämpfe:

  • getting this plugin supported in Redmine 3.1.x and 3.2.x

HUGE thanks to Rob Spearman for basically taking over the project and pushing it forward:

New Configuaration options

  • Show articles without tabs
  • Show attachments before article content
  • Show thumbnails for articles in lists
  • Show breadcrumbs for articles in lists

New permissions

  • Article history will only show up if have view permission
  • optional permission for users to manage just their own articles. (#306)


  • Sort Tags on the index page
  • Added authored view so users can find articles by author easily

Bug Fixes

  • article view counts not updating (#304)
  • top rated list not valid (#305)
  • ActiveRecord::StaleObjectError (Attempted to destroy a stale object: KbArticle) (#300)
  • Error when generating a PDF of an article with pictures (#308)
  • 500 Internal Server Error - if DELETE category but it's have subcategory (#293)

Note that this is a preliminary release as there is one bug in here that I haven't squashed.

When trying to search, you're prompted with a failure similar to:

Started GET "/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=stuff" for at 2016-06-23 01:14:06 +0000

I'm pretty sure this has to do with how we're setting up acts_as_searchable in the kb_article model. Any suggestions welcome ;)
