  • Resolved Rob7


    When using the shortcode:

    [qa cat=mycategory]

    excerpts are switched off. I thought I could combine shortcodes like this:

    [qa cat=mycategory excerpts=true]

    However excerpts still do not work.

    If I use the shortcode [qa] excerpts then work fine (providing they are turned on in settings).

    Can you tell me how I can get excerpts working or show me how to combine the shortcodes properly?

    Excerpts are only enabled for the FAQ homepage, not for individual category pages. We’ll consider making this an option in the next version of the plugin.


    Thanks Dalton. I have since purchased the plus version. I think it would be great to make this an option in the next version. Currently I have excerpts turned on in the FAQ homepage, but then if someone clicks through to the full post it says “posted in: mycategory” at the bottom. If someone then clicks on mycategory link then excerpts are turned off. It would be great to have them on at category level. Especially as some full posts I have are long or have photos in them.

    Also is there a way on the FAQ homepage to reorder the categories?

    Thank you.

    I too wish to combine shortcodes:
    [qa searchpos=top cat=installation]

    Additionally, I would like to show JUST the search and not the categories or questions at all. Is this also possible?
