FAQ Manager
[resolved] Restrict the faqlist (7 posts)

    2 things:

    1. Can I limit the list of post titles? I only want to show 5 of the most recent titles in my sidebar. Right now, it's showing 10 and had started a second page.
    2. Can the titles show in reverse order with the newest title added to the TOP of the list instead of the bottom?

    My site:
    http://datascopic.net/yourquestions/
    The area of question is in the sidebar, titled: Answers to Questions submitted by YOU!

    I got the list to shorten. Now it's even more important to get the list reversed.

    [faqlist limit="7"]

    successfully restricted the list to 7 but they're the 7 oldest.

    two things:

    1.) there is a drag-and-drop sort available on the back-end
    2.) there are dedicated widgets included that will allow you to list the most recent questions from a specific tag or topic

    do either of these solve the issue?

    norcross, thanks for the input.

    Can you direct me to the "back-end"? Are you saying I go to the FAQ Manager editor for the drag-&-drop sort?

    Still wondering what "back-end" is being referred to.

    I found it.
    In the dashboard in the sidebar there is "Sort FAQs."

    This initially looks like a hassle because I have to go manually move these items, but I like this better than something that automatically adds the newest post to the top of the list.

    With my list limited to 7, I can do a mix of the newest FAQs and the best FAQs.

    Excellent solution!

    RESOLVED

    One request: can the Sort section be set up in 2 columns? As I add more to the list, it would be easier to move things around if there was more visible on the page without scrolling.

    not sure about splitting columns. the reason being that the jQuery that powers the drag and drop (and saves the new order) is all tied to being in that <ul> column. splitting them would break that. however, I could work with the size of each item to make more of them fit.

    thanks for the feedback!
