Add read only field to customer portal - service desk


I am currently trying to add a "How to guide" group to the customer portal which I can add text to for users to read.

Looking through the request types and field types I've noticed that there is a read-only text field and a story request type.

Is there a way currently to do this?

1) Users clicks on how to group
2) Shows a few stories types
3) Click on one of the stories
4) Read only text box shows with info

It may be easier to use something like Confluence and link it with a read-only knowledgebase, as it sounds like you are trying to create documentation for users to easily access. 

Users can search for articles / information in the Customer Portal search bar. 

Out of the box, JSD allows you to link to a Confluence Space. I would suggest doing that, as it will make your documentation appear clean and easily consumable.
