What’s the difference between
Tribe and phpMyFAQ?

phpMyFAQ is one of the oldest open-source software for hosting FAQs. Tribe is a cloud-based platform that helps you build an integrated knowledge hub by keeping your static content and user-generated content related to your product in one central place and showcase relevant content when users search, browse or add questions.

Companies use Tribe to gain better customer insights from the user discussions, keep users involved by encouraging them to ask questions on topics not covered by your team, share feedback, and promote self-service.

Why Tribe is the leading
alternative to phpMyFAQ for knowledge base management

Social touchpoints with Q&A

With discussions and Q&A you can allow your knowledge base users to collaborate, share ideas, and co-create content. This helps you promote self-service in the community, empower the members to help each other and the content shared in the community remains up-to-date.

Multiple content types

Your team can always create any type of content with a rich editor -- right from articles and videos to short posts and links. Wherever applicable, the comments and answers can be disabled so that you can mix both static and dynamic content.
