Even with the Theaetetus' definition of truth, which I find to be highly original and amazingly ingenious, we are still left without an explanation as to how the accidental coincidence of a Platonic Truth and an actual fact of the world occurs. Your idea reminds me of Spinoza and Whitehead's attempt at an Occasionalist explanation of mind-body interactions.
That's why most philosophers don't consider true belief to constitute knowledge. Gettier's paradox implies that something more is needed - usually a causal connection between the belief and the fact that makes it true.
