    Hi Bryan,

    I installed this plugin recently, and can't figure out how to link it to the FAQ button on our homepage. Do I need to create a page with a [plugin-name] in brackets?

    Also It wasn't clear in the FAQ Admin Page that comes with the plugin whether I had to create one page per faq question either. please help! This looks like a great plugin and I saw some other people in this forum using it.

    Thanks!

    The instructions are pretty clear, but I can summarize them here...

    1) Create a page and give it the animation functionality by
    (a) including "FAQ" or "Frequently Asked Questions" in the page title
    (b) checking the check box in the editor screen box titled "Make Animated Dropdown Text"

    2) Type questions on that page. Each question should be a heading, such as a Heading 1, which can be chosen in the WordPress format menu.

    3) Save the page and view it.

    So, no, you do not need to create a separate page for each question and answer.

    As for linking to the FAQ page, the page that you made with all the questions and answers is like any other WordPress page, so you can just link the button to the URL of that page.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    I'll definitely give it a good review now that I understand.

    Thank you!
    In the next version, I will look into updating the instructions to make them a little more clear, like what I wrote here in response to your first post.
