FAQ plugin version 1.6
Our WordPress FAQ plugin is extremely popular and users love the simplicity of the way it works. An update was necessary to introduce much needed features into the plugin that have been requested over a period of time.
What’s new in version 1.6?
There are 32 changes in this update. See the release notes for a detailed list of changes and then I will give you a quick overview of some of the most important changes that were made.
Multilingual with (m)qTranslate
Questions, groups, custom fields, etc. are now all multilingual using either mqTranslate or qTranslate plugin for WordPress. So you can have FAQs in multiple languages and the specific language will be shown as the user switches the language on the site.
The plugin does actually have partial integration with WPML as well so it will work but we are fine-tuning a few parts so we don’t want to guarantee WPML integration yet. You may try it but ultimately we’ll have another update soon with full WPML integration into our FAQ plugin.
WordPress widget API
From manual, custom widgets, we have updated the plugin to use the WordPress widget API extending the
WP_Widget class. This makes widgets more universal and easier to maintain.
Please note that you need to recreate your FAQ widgets under Appearance > Widgets in the WordPress dashboard unfortunately Sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.
We will be introducing new widgets soon, such as an FAQ search widget.
You can now set featured questions under FAQs > Questions in the plugin by clicking the star icon next to the question. To unfeature it, you can just click the filled star again.
To display featured questions of a group or for any other list of questions, simply include the
featured attribute/parameter into the shortcode with value
1. To show non-featured questions, specify the
featured attribute/parameter with value
0. To show both featured and non-featured questions, leave the
featured parameter out of the shortcode.
And much more…
Many other improvements and fixes have been made overall.
