Includes a set of custom taxonomies to organize, and shortcode options for different display configurations. [See the FAQ section](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-faq-manager/faq "See the FAQ section") for complete setup options. == Installation == This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working. 1. Upload the 'wordpress-faq-manager' folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory or install via the WP admin panel 1. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress 1. That's it. == Frequently Asked Questions == = What does this do? = It uses the custom post type feature to create a dedicated FAQ section in your WordPress site, including categories and tags exclusive to them. = How Do I Use It? = Each FAQ acts like a "post". You can assign your own categories (called topics) or tags and organize as you see fit. You can also use shortcodes to place them on any page as follows: * For the complete list: place `[faq]` on a post / page * For a single FAQ: place `[faq faq_id="ID"]` on a post / page * List all from a single FAQ topic category: place `[faq faq_topic="topic-slug"]` on a post / page * List all from a single FAQ tag: place `[faq faq_tag="tag-slug"]` on a post / page Please note that the shortcode can't handle a query of multiple categories in a single shortcode. However, you can stack them as such: ...content.... `[faq faq_topic="topic-slug-one"]` `[faq faq_tag="tag-slug-two"]` The list will show 10 FAQs based on your sorting (if none has been done, it will be in date order). * To display only 5: place `[faq limit="5"]` on a post / page * To display ALL: place `[faq limit="-1"]` on a post / page * For a list with a title and link to full FAQ: place `[faqlist]` on a post / page * For a list with a group of titles that link to complete content later in page: place `[faqcombo]` on a post / page * For a list of taxonomies (topics or tags) with a link to their respective archive page: place `[faqtaxlist type="topics"]` or `[faqtaxlist type="tags"]` on a post / page * For a list of taxonomies (topics or tags) with their description: place `[faqtaxlist type="topics (or tags)" desc="true"]` on a post / page == Screenshots == 1.
