KBucket Topic Curation


The KBucket plugin is a place for curators to share their own editorialized research in context. Each KBucket page (K stands for Knowledge) can store and share hundreds of links that are easily navigable through topic, author and publisher tags.

This video provides an overview of KBucket functions and features.

The curation happens in your browser. We offer two extensions.

Kurator is a chrome extension, that makes it real easy to curate, organize and publish your research. You need Kurator to post your research to KBucket. Here is a quick intro to Kurator and its functions.

We also offer a powerful extension for Firefox browsers (only works for versions up to version 57. Will continue to work with Waterfox browsers. Visit the KBrowser page to learn more.

To install Kurator and start curating, launch you chrome browser and install <a href=”https://optimalaccess.com/kurator” target=”_blank”>Kurator here.

What are the limitations with the Trial Version

The Trail version lets you post 10 articles per channel and create as many channels as you wish. The idea is for you to make sure the Plugin works for you and is compatible with your site.

How do I curate Articles

To Curate articles you need the Kauthor plugin for Firefox.
Kauthor let’s you pin and group all your info sources, create multiple channels for storing, commenting and tagging links.
To learn more simply start Firefox and install the plugin from our site.

You can share links individually by clicking on the “+” sign at the end of the description and sharing the article on your preferred channel. You can also grab the article “url” placed under each article and paste it to your timeline. Additionally you can schedule links in a channel using the RSS feed provided for each channel in your dashboard. You can find these feeds under the “Published Links” tab in your WordPress > KBucket page. Select the Category and sub-category and grab the RSS feed to the right of your drop down boxes. We have more detailed description in our KBucket forum on our website.
