In this tutorial, I am going to walk you through the steps of setting up your FAQ section in TikiWiki. In order to create a FAQ section, you will need to install the feature from the Features panel. That will activate it and from there you can start setting it up. To learn how to install the feature and set up your options for the FAQ section, continue reading this tutorial.
You can get started with this tutorial by logging into your admin area. After you have logged in, click the Admin Home link in the left panel. When the page loads, click the Feature box on the right side of the page. On the Features page, you will need to click the New button at the top of the box. In the New section, you will need to click the box next to the FAQ section. Then you will need to click the Apply button to install the feature.
Now you will need to look on the left side of your page and find the FAQ folder. Click the folder and the page will reload. Make sure you click the folder. This is where you will go to set up your FAQ section.
Once you click the folder, you will see a wrench icon at the top of the page. Click that icon and the page will again reload. Now you will see your options for setting up the FAQ section. Let’s take a look at these options.
Questions and Answers Prefix – This is how your FAQs will be IDed. Drop this box down and make your selection. By default, it is set at Q and A. You can leave it on this if you want.
Comments – If you want to allow comments, leave this box checked. If you don’t, then uncheck it.
Default Number of Comments – This is set at 10, but you are free to change it to what you want. This is telling the system how many comments to allow on each post.
When you are finished with these options, you will need to click the Change Settings button at the bottom of the box. Your FAQ options will now be set up. You can now move on to creating your FAQ section for your TikiWiki site. If you need help with that, please see my other tutorial on that topic.
