That’s where your customer support comes in. In order to keep clients happy, you have to make sure the experience they have whenever they come across any problems with your product is as pleasant as possible. And a big part of that is the way you handle their support tickets. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best WordPress support ticket themes that are sure to help you create a smooth and efficient support experience for your customers.

Tikidocs is a dedicated knowledgebase and support forum theme with a variety of useful features.

Add to this the theme’s clean and modern design style, as well as the many other functionalities, and you’ve got a winning combination.
