    Can someone tell me how to make a FAQ list with links within the blog or maybe there is a plug-in.

    Thanks.

    I think I have the answer but its only a problem.

    Quicktags are not showing in the post editor.

    Is there a setting I'm missing? I'm using 2.1

    Thanks.

    You need to disable the ugly wysiwyg thing in order to get the Quicktags.

    There is a plugin here.

    Unfortunately, the plugin referenced by jwurster seems to be completely unsupported (as in, the author hasn't responded to questions, nor has he made any of the future updates promised a year ago). I have been using it, and having problems with it, and asking questions for some time, to no avail.

    Even more unfortunately, he released it under a restrictive license, so there isn't much anyone else can do with the code either.

    I am about to find another alternative, because I just can't have the FAQ on my site and not working right. The only suggestion I have found that sounds workable (until someone writes a great one and supports it) is this:

    Well, a plugin may not be required after all.

    1. Create a specific category for FAQ entries (say, "FAQ")
    2. To add entry, use the "Title" field to hold the question, use the "Post Content" to hold the answer.
    4. Create a template that will display all posts of category "FAQ" a specific way.
    5. Exclude posts of category "FAQ" from displaying on the frontpage.

    which was posted by alphaoid here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/90066?replies=6

    I hope that helps. If anyone decides to write a plugin that does what Rane's does, and stick with it for the long run, I would be thrilled.

    Any other ideas are always welcome, as I am searching for the best alternative. :)

    edit: I should clarify that the FAQ by Rane worked GREAT up front. Something I did later on (maybe a conflicting plugin?) broke it, and now I can't get any help from the author. I should probably try posting the problem here on the forum, and maybe someone else can help. It would be nice if we could somehow redeem the FAQ by Rane. It is really nicely done, and there is so much potential for it to be expanded into something incredibly useful.

    Just got wind of a newer FAQ plugin which looks good:
