Frequently Asked Questions
The Frequently Asked Questions (faq) module allows users with the 'administer faq' permission to create question and answer pairs which they want displayed on the 'faq' page. The 'faq' page is automatically generated from the FAQ nodes configured. There are a number of features available in the 5.x and 6.x branches which are not available in 4.7.x. The 4.7.x branch is now only receiving bug fixes. All new features will be done for Drupal 5.x and 6.x.
The layout of the FAQ page can be modified on the settings page. There are four question and answer layouts to choose from. In addition, if the 'Taxonomy' module is enabled, it is possible to put the questions into different categories when editing. Users will need the 'view faq' permission to view the 'faq' page and will need the 'administer faq' permission to configure the layout, etc.
There are 3 blocks included in this module. The first shows a list of FAQ categories. The other two can show a configurable number of FAQs - one shows recent FAQs, while the other just displays random ones. Note the block functions theme_faq_highlights(), which shows the last X recently created FAQs, and theme_faq_random_highlights(), which shows X random FAQs, can also be called in a php-filtered node if desired.
