Setting up KBucket

KBucket is our plug&play resource hub solution for WordPress.

The content for KBucket is curated and managed with Kurator. In this section, you will learn how to install and register your WordPress plugin and connect it to your Kurator app.

Registering Your Site

You can install KBucket on your WordPress website, by searching for KBucket in your plugin directory which will direct you to this page on the WordPress website.

After you install KBucket, you need to register your site here and generate an API key to unlock the freemium version of KBucket.

 

Setting up Your Page

After you generate the API key you are now ready to set up your KBucket plugin.

Go over to the settings tab and enter the API key to activate your plugin.

The settings tab is where you set up the look & feel and display elements of your KBucket page.

Scroll down the page and click yes on "use as shortcode"

Now copy the shortcodes and go over to the "Pages" section of your site.

The plugin has created a page called KBucket under your pages directory.

You can change the name and address of this page as you wish.

Make sure the page is set up at full width with no sidebar as the tag cloud will act as your sidebar.

Now create a row with 2 columns. We recommend you assign 75% to the list view and 25% to the tag view.

You are now ready to post content to this page.

Connecting Kurator

All of your content is curated and managed by Kurator.

You can easily connect the KBucket files you set up in Kurator with your WordPress plugin.

We offer a manual upload and an automated connection.

Simply generate a link for your KBucket file in Kurator and enter that link under your "upload KBucket tab" in the designated area and choose your sync frequency and hit start.

Now every time you add or edit a link in your Kurator app, your KBucket file will be automatically updated.

If you choose to upload the content manually, simply download your KBucket file to your computer, and manually upload it to your site.
