In our company, we designed about 236 FAQ items, available to our registered customers. We had to group them in more than 70 cagetories.
While migrating from 1.6.8 to 3.0.8, I encountered some problems, as there is no back legacy with olders versions from 3 versions on (responsiveness, etc).
That has been the opportunity to appreciate the quality of the support of FAQ Book Pro. I received a personalized SQL update request, which enabled me to migrate and make our FAQ responsive.
The new 3.x versions also give more functionality in the administrator panel.
Among other improvements is the fact that FAQ items now benefit from Joomla article functionality. This is valuable for us, for this simple reason. FAQ items are written by developers, and have to be revised and validated by supervisors. When submitting an internal FAQ request to the supervisor, the latter has to distinguish such an item from customers FAQ requests. This is made possible by publishing the FAQ item with an postponed publishing date. The FAQ item then apperas in the list with the typical Joomla orange icon (published, but pending).
The ACL are improved in the same way, allowing a full validation workflow. I told you. Far the best solution on the market.
There was a minor installation problem (I was missing a critical something or other in my registry) and the support team, Yannis in particular, sorted it all out for me within hours of my email. He logged on to my site's backend and had it working immediately. Great component, great support -- I'd recommend it to everyone.
Normally I see upgrades from basic to PRO where the app modifies the structure for you and then extends the basic app. This one does not.
The fact that you pay a FEE and still have to work means that you better think twice about going PRO. Sure, I have my regrets for the costs versus the amount of work but it still is a much better product than the other FAQs out there.
Stick with the BASIC or start with the PRO.
Thank you for your review,
We will try to make the upgrade from the free version as smooth as possible in next updates.
