This setting is a bit more complicated but adds an amazing level of flexibility to your knowledgebase. You can find this labelled as “First section level” under the new Output tab in your Settings page.

With this setting you can tell the plugin if you’re using the knowledgebase for single or multiple products. e.g. the plugin powers the knowledgebase on this site for my multiple plugins. Section Level 1 is used to store the name of the product. Section Level 2 is the first level categories that hold the independent articles. If you’re using the knowledgebase for a single product, you can set this to 1.
