[resolved] Questions - open close plus permalinks and pages ... (5 posts)

    Hi - i've been testing your plugin and it is very cool thus far so kudos ... i do have two questions ->

    a) open close link ... when i'm showing the titles for the FAQ entries via the shortcode, there is no plus or minus button to indicate open and close for said FAQ entry thus wondering if there is way to make it more brain dead for simple people not to think and append the FAQ post titles via a [+/-] or [open/close] kind of feature when shown on full page via this shortcode -> [faq limit="-1"] ..??..

    b) permalinks ... i wanted to create a high-level page called FAQ (a parent page thus reads mydomain.com/faq/) and put the shortcode in that page [faq limit="-1"] ... this works but the plugin's default slug of "questions" (and question) inserts FAQs as title for the questions page thus conflicts a bit with breadcrumbs ...

    even if i change the plugin settings to FAQ the questions or question slug still comes into play ... thus with my breadcrumbs your plugin takes over and inserts -> You Are Hear -> Home -> FAQs .. with FAQs resolving to the questions slug ...

    ideally i'd like it to resolve back to the parent page slug of FAQ ... thus anyway i can change this ..??..

    i tried creating pages called Question, Questions, FAQs, etc but none of this worked ...

    i also checked off all the SEO options for noindex, nofollow, noarchive ...

    ideally i would like to create a custom page template for all FAQ posts then make that private for admins only just in case a user stumbled onto the "more" link for FAQ post which then takes them into this breadcrumb path that conflicts a bit with rest of my site ...

    anyhow, truly appreciate the work here and thought i'd touch base in these two depts ... thanks in advance for any pointers that can be shared as hacks, work arounds, et al. ... cordially, chuck scott

    1.) adding plus / minus: the CSS can be modified to allow this, but I don't plan on adding it into the plugin at this time, since my goal is to allow themes to have their own design as much as possible and not interfere. Here is some CSS that you could use (modify as you want)

    #faq_block .single_faq .expand_title:before,
    #faq_block .single_faq .expand_title:after {
    	content: " + ";
    	font-weight: normal;
    }

    2.) permalinks: for the plugin to function correctly, each item needs a slug to write. WP creates an archive page on it's own based on that. So each individual FAQ is called 'question' and the archive page is called 'questions'. I don't know what you're using to create breadcrumbs (plugin, theme, etc) but that may be able to be filtered. in addition, you can add an htaccess rule to redirect from domain.com/questions to domain.com/faq or whatever you want.

    I added your block of code:

    #faq_block .single_faq .expand_title:before,
    #faq_block .single_faq .expand_title:after {
    	content: " + ";
    	font-weight: normal;
    }

    After adding the code several times without result before I realized there is no DIV ID "faq_block" I found "faq-block" with Firebug, but even with this correction to the code I see no + sign. Additionally using Firebug I don't even see the code block I added to my custom.css.

    Okay figured out I need to change all underscores with hyphens but now I have a + on both sides of my topic header. So for example;

    + How do I pay for your services +

    I know you are limited to what you can suggest, but it would be cool if after I fixed the double + signs we could get a + before click and a - after click.

    Thanks!
