Should I use child themes included with the plugin?

Child themes provided with GD Knowledge Base Pro are not required. The plugin works with any theme, and child themes provided are examples to get you started with custom development in case you want to customise GD Knowledge Base Pro plugin templates. Using child themes is not recommended for non-developers.

If you want to add only styling changes, you can add your own custom CSS into your theme style.css file.

Can I use Dev4Press plugins on WordPress.com hosted websites?

WordPress.com allows installation of plugins only for websites in the WordPress.com Business plan. If you have free WordPress.com website, or you have paid account other then business, you can’t install plugins, and you can’t use Dev4Press plugins.

If you have WordPress.com Business plan, you can install and use Dev4Press plugins with some exceptions: Dev4Press Updater, GD Security Toolbox Pro and GD Press Tools Pro will not work. As for all other plugins, they should work fine. But, all the plugins that do work, can be used from WP Admin panel in the WordPress.com, they can’t integrate into WordPress.com own dashboard or editor.

But, due to the way the WordPress.com works, and the fact that it is a very closed system, we can’t provide support related to the server setup, and we can’t guarantee that all our plugins will work with WordPress.com as expected.

What is child theme?

The child theme is a theme that inherits the parent theme. It is a starting point in theme modification processes that will not affect parent theme, and all modifications will go into the child theme. This way you can start with the parent theme and make changes to it by adding all changes into child theme. More about child themes you can find here.

Can I upgrade from Dev4Press free plugins for bbPress?

Yes. If any of these plugins (GD bbPress Attachments, GD bbPress Tools and GD bbPress Widgets) is active, GD bbPress Toolbox will disable them on activation.

Version 5.0.x of GD bbPress Toolbox Pro doesn’t disable the free plugins, and you need to disable them before activating GD bbPress Toolbox Pro. This will be addressed in 5.1 release.
