XoopsFaq 1.25 RC1


XoopsFaq 1.25 - RC1

A simple, yet powerfull Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

This is a RELEASE CANDIDATE (RC) release, do not use it on a production site!




Xoopsfaq is a XOOPS module that allows an administrator to create
FAQs and responses. This version of the module has been refactored and provides the ability for
site administrators to create FAQs and assign them to a category. The categories utlize the XOOPS
Group Pemission subsystem to allow the administrator to limit visibility of a category (and subsequently
the FAQs in the category). The code has been updated to work with, and take advantage of the features in,
XOOPS 2.5.9. The module includes the following features:

XoopsFaq Features:



  • Create virtually unlimited categories and FAQs.

  • XOOPS 2.5.x Administration GUI

  • Uses XOOPS Editor class to allow admin to use HTML in FAQ answers if desired

  • Frontside pages (Category and FAQ) create page specific HTML meta data for the title and keywords

  • FAQs can be published at a future date allowing administrator the ability to write FAQs and publish later

  • Ability to activate/inactivate a FAQ to control FAQ visibility

  • Multi-language support - no hard coded language strings

  • Contains three (3), permissions aware cloneable blocks to display Recent FAQs, Random FAQs, and Categories

  • Has plugin for XOOPS Search functionality to search a catogory and FAQ title/answer for keywords

  • Uses XOOPS templating system for display to make customization easier

  • No database changes so it's easy to update from previous versions

  • Moderinization of code provides better reliability and security than previous versions



Why is this an RELEASE CANDIDATE Release?



  1. This module needs some additional testing - Please consider helping!

  2. All of the functionality that will be added to this version has been included - we now need to test and fix any issues so we can create a production release

  3. The documentation isn't complete - please consider creating a GitBook for this module.

  4. We need to create language translation files on TRANSIFEX. Currently ENGLISH is included with the module but please consider helping translate to other languages




Important Notices:


Please read the /docs/install.txt file for installation and configuration information.


Backup your existing site before installing/upgrading any new XOOPS module.


Download: XOOPS FAQ - NOTE: Don't forget to rename the folder from xoopsfaq-master to xoopsfaq before you install the module.

 Thanks

Thank you @zyspec, nice work.

I did not find this particular version on transifex. Any tips on how to proceed? I'm not used to this tool :(

Ps: This new popup comment box in xoops.org is not very friendly. It does not provide the editor and it does not provide a default title and it does not wrap lines.

 Thanks for the help @trabis

You can contact @Cesagonchu to be added as a translator on Transifex. She may need add xoopsfaq as a project to get it started. @mamba may be another good resource to get started. He may have some documentation on "speed dial".

 Thank you

The module is interesting. Can I still add support for TAG? Added localization for the Russian language.

 Re: Thank you

@aerograf,

Please submit an issue on GitHub to have a future version consider adding TAG support. Since this is an RC release I don't foresee adding TAG support in this version but it could possibly be added in a future version.

This version should improve web crawler results since we've added support for \Xmf\Metagen to create page specific meta title and keywords.
