KBucket: Your Curated Content in WordPress


Introducing KBucket – the ultimate solution for WordPress content curation. Our robust, plug&play content library plugin makes it easy to display and share curated content from your website.

In today’s world of AI, the human touch can often feel like it’s being left behind.

That’s why we at Optimal Access believe that a truly curated hub is one that is editorialized and organized by humans.

While AI is undoubtedly a powerful tool for content discovery and summary generation, we understand that it cannot replicate the intentions and insights of a human curator.

That’s why with KBucket, we’ve created a plugin that puts the power of curation back in your hands.

No matter where you find your content, whether it’s from social media channels, search results, discovery tools or trade publications, you are already using the power of AI by those platforms to find content.

As a human editor, your job is to select what resonates with you, which will distinguish you from others.

Our idea for our curation tools is to make sure your unique perspective and editorial voice are being heard.

But KBucket isn’t just a plugin for publishing and managing a resource hub.

We’ve taken it a step further by providing you with the ability to embed your curated content as a carousel, slider, or grid anywhere on your website.

With KBucket, you can bring your curated content to life and showcase it in a way that engages your audience.

What’s more, managing your curated content is a breeze with our Kurator app.

You and your team can collaborate effortlessly, allowing multiple people to contribute to your resource hub’s content.

And once you’ve connected Kurator to KBucket, managing your content is a cinch. You’ll never have to log into your website to update your KBucket content, as everything is managed directly from the browser.


KBucket is the ultimate content curation solution for anyone looking to provide their audience with valuable and informative resources.

Whether you’re a

  • marketer looking to fill content gaps with curated content,
  • an educator seeking to provide resources for your students,
  • a journalist aiming to curate and publish your research,
  • or a political entity hoping to educate and comment on news and policy,

KBucket is the ideal plugin for you.

I'd been looking for an aggregator plugin for a site I'd been wanting to start, and this one did the trick. It's easy to set up, and if you run into trouble, the author is available and very willing to assist.

This has been one of our easiest plugins and the new features help it work even better. If you're looking for an easy way to share curated content from outside sources on your website, this is the way to do it. Couple it with their browser extension for Chrome and this becomes seamless.
