FAQ Section … ???

    DirectoryPress_7.1.4

    Where/How does the FAQ section fit into the greater scheme of things?
    I see it in my admin menu as what seems like a Custom Post Type (Like Article Manager)
    But unlike Article Manager it is not offered as a “page” or tick option in the WP Menu Setup.
    And I can not find any settings/switches to activate or manage it anywhere in the theme settings …

    Am I blind or just missing something?
    Please help … thanks.

    FAQ is just a spare part, if you want to use it you can however alot of people dont.

    Thanks Mark
    Is there no documentation/video/instructions/ setting at all … ?!
    I am trying to understand …
    – why it was created
    – where/how to use it … besides the simple answer of “it is a Frequently Asked Questions section.
    – how does it get “integrated”

    I certainly need/can use a FAQ section … but how do I use this …?
    How is it better, or of any more use than simply creating my own FAQ page with sub-pages?

    A “spare part” is something that “fits” somewhere … where does the FAQ section “fit in”?

    Sorry about this … just trying to find out if I am missing something obvious.

    AHHhhh … think I just found it.
    It’s a Page Template!
    With an Accordion-based “master page”

    Is that it?
    It looks Great!

    In widgets > Article/FAQ Page Sidebar “box”

    – Says “This is the right column sidebar for your website ARTICLES/FAQ PAGES.”, but in Display Settings there is only a setting for “Article Page Column Layout” and that does not seem to work either as it doesn’t change when “right” or “both” sidebars are activated.
    – There is no setting anywhere for the FAQ Column Layout … and widgets don’t appear on the FAQ “Master Page” (stays empty)

    ?
    Thanks.

    FAQ page will be a normal page so widgets will show up for your pages.

    Sorry Mark, I don’t understand you.
    – widgets showing on my “normal” page does NOT show up in/on the FAQ sidebar

    Included screenshots of “Home” page and when FAQ is clicked …
    – no widget showing in FAQ sidebar (just message to admin)

    Thanks Mark, got it working under “Page Column Layout” instead of “Article Page Column Layout”which I now realise is probably what you meant.
