General

This is essentially the starting point of your settings. Give your base a name, enable it and you are good to go.

Description

You can set a description for your base. This field is currently only used for the "Documentation" theme and has no effect for the other themes.

This may change in a future update.

Frontend language

You can define a language for your frontend. We currently support English, German and French. Other languages will be added in future updates. When defining your frontend language, any label or text will be translated to your selected language. For example "Was this article helpful?" is something that would be translated to "War dieser Artikel hilfreich?" when selecting German.

As of now, you cannot add your own translation for these texts. But this is planned for a future update.

Posted by / Last updated

You can choose to display the Posted by and/or Last updated info on each article page. You may also disable this info altogether.


Access

Here you can limit the access to your base.

Enable / Disable your base

When your base is disabled, nobody (not even you) can access it.

Restrict by IP address

You may restrict your base by an IP address. As of now, only IPv4 addresses are allowed. You can add multiple IP addresses separated by comma.

Restrict by password
