FAQ Plugin

  • Does anyone know of a FAQ plugin? I would think it would retain questions in a database and then display them in a page. Also it would have sidebar tags to list FAQ categories.

  • Why not just set up category FAQ, with subcategories then put your Q&A as posts. Then all you need to do is filter out the FAQ category from the rest of your posts. Which can be done with a query_posts in your home/index.php

    Thanks for the idea! I assume I could create a sidebar box with heading FAQ and then list the subcategory titles as items within the box.

    I follow you until you get to the index.php. What type of modifications would I have to make to the index.php page? I know how to modify sidebar and the loop in index, but I am not sure what type of modifications would be needed. If I make modifications to my main loop to facilitate my special FAQ query, what will happen to the display of index when displaying the other categories?

    Also, putting answered questions as posts would mean that they would slip down by date, right? So would it be possible to order the posts within a subcategory by something other than date?

    I was hoping for a FAQ plugin, any coders here interested to make this plugin? 🙂

    I’ve also been shopping for a FAQ plugin!

    I guess I’ll just have to write one.

    That’s what I like about this community. If enough people express interest in something, someone steps up and writes a plugin for it.

    A little searching found this other thread — http://wordpress.org/support/topic/43482?replies=3. I would say why not set up new Category as was suggested above. Writing a plugin is not always the solution. But if someone volunteers, great! And thanks.

    It’s designed to support searching, wordpress categories, view counts, ratings, submitter name/email/URL/IP etc. However, that hasn’t been implemented yet. I may get around to it one of these days.

    VaamYob: You are a wiz! Thanks for your help.

    Now records the user who submitted the question’s ip address and asks for their name/email/website.

    I just downloaded and activated. When I went to edit a Page, I got this error:
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/jimw3141/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/faq/faq.php on line 125

    I also get this error in every post and every page.

    I even added an faq but this didn’t help.

    My server is undergoing a DOS attack right now. I’ll look into it when the server comes back online.

    Updated, please get latest.

    Got the latest one from your site, but it’s still having the same error as just now, the one jwurster has.

    You may have beaten me to the punch and gotten the zip file before I updated it, please get the latest and try again.
