I'm using Joomla 2.5.4 and have worked damm hard building my site for the last 2 months! I need an FAQ so i decided to look on here to find one...



I came across this FAQ it looked interesting so i followed instructions and installed it... the plugin and the core plugin...



I activated both ...and as soon as it was activated! ...i F5 refreshed my home page and EVERYTHING was messed up! ...



I uninstalled the plugin! and the site is STILL MESSED UP! ... this is a WORST NIGHTMARE for a developer! as there is nothing on their website explaining that this can happen!



I ADVISE EVERYONE STRONGLY to keep away!!! DO NOT INSTALL THIS PLUGIN OR YOU RISK MESSING UP YOUR SITE! ...DON'T BELIEVE ME??? THEN GO RIGHT AHEAD AND TRY IT!



This is a VERY dangerous plugin! ...and I STILL CAN'T FIX MY SITE! I DONT KNOW WHAT IT DID TO MESS IT UP! SO I DONT KNOW WHAT OR HOW TO FIX IT!!



STUPID!!! VERY STUPID!!!

Owner's reply: Hi, I'm sorry about your situation.
However this extension is not dangerous at all. Your situation has nothing to do with our FAQ plugin.
Please take an advantage of our support first - I would appreciate it more then uppercase words and exclamation marks. Thank you.

Great Extension!

I love this extension. I started using it a few years back and the process explained below got me going. I notice that the extension writer has added some functionality to help clarify that issue. =) Now I use it in several projects and it tickles my clients to no end!



if you are looking for a simple for non techies to use, i would suggest this extension. Some may experience some issues up front but once you install AND enable both plugins, the path is clear.


I never got to use this plugin, After installing it, I had to spend half a day trying to fix my site. I couldn't login as a super-admin. Joomla said: "You do not have access to the administrator section of this site". Finally I went into cPanel>PHPmyAdmin>Joomla_Database>#_user_usergroup_map> and set my user from 8(superadmin) to 7(admin). Then I was able to uninstall the component and everything worked fine.

Owner's reply: I'm sorry about your situation but this plugin does not affect the database at all.
Except the #__extensions table but this table is controlled by default by Joomla! installation process.

Fantastic

time wasted

installed the plugin, this will ask for "Core Design Scriptegrator" wich i can not find



sorry no good

Owner's reply: Hi, Core Design Scriptegrator plugin is available to download directory from our website.

I tried out this plugin and unfortunately it looks pretty limited for my uses.



First, I did have to follow the instructions below (thank you!) to get it working. The documentation on the site is lacking.



But the major issue is that the length of the question is limited by the number of characters in the title of an article. I wanted a FAQ that read "I clicked the download button and I see the thank you page, but no download started. What happened?" Unfortunately that is too long for a standard Joomla title name so it wouldn't work.



I have tried Accordion FAQ and that works much better.



This may work for some but didn't for me :(


I have previously used this extension to a site with J1.5 and every thing went smooth. Now I hoped to do same thing with a site with J1.6 and honestly the plugin does not work at all, it gives some error message that seems can be fixed by modifying PhpAdmin file from back-end this is not the way a pluging should work, furthermore some posts dates 2 months and 2 weeks ago, which means that the same problem have been found and yet not solved.



If I would rate J1.5.x I would rate it 5 stars, this one 1 stars. Sorry guy do not spread plugins in the Internet wasting other people time.

Owner's reply: Core Design FAQ plugin is compatible with Joomla! 1.6
Please use our forum to get some further help. Thank you.

Works fine and looks great however this won't help in SEO as theres no title or h1 h2 on articles and there is no forum to request this feature. Also articles won't appear in a sitemap so they don't exist on the internet...


excellent plugin

Thank you RobbieF

I knew i had this extension working by the past but i forgot how i got it to work. Thanks to you RobbieF who mentionned some important lacking informations on how to setup this plugin.



The author should really considerate updating his guide. I've spent many hours to try to make it works.



The only thing i'd add in your walkthrough is to put the article containing the categories in a separate category otherwise, you'll get a faq for your article contained in the faqs.

An easy way to control display of text to just the site users that you want to have see it! This plugin works by allowing you to place tags around text that you want to display to the specified users, with an option for showing an alternate message to all other users. Choose from "user" based access (to specify access by username), or "level" based access (to restrict viewing to a specific Joomla permission level such as "registered", "author", "manager", etc). This is a simple option for controlling access to parts of pages, without having to set up a complex Group Access component.
