Re: Link to Glossary Term Entry

glossary terms are always shown with their corresponding tooltip. You could link them manually with your list of glossary terms. Thorsten Thorsten - I am not sure what you mean, here. What is a "tool tip" and how does that enable me to link to a glossary entry. I have attached a screen shot (glossa...

Link to Glossary Term Entry

Is it possible to create a link to a single term in the FAQ Glossary? If so, how does one do this?

Specifically, say you define the term "SMTP" in the glossary. How can you then create a hyper link so that a user can be taken directly to the Glossary entry for "SMTP" by clicking on the link?

FAQ Entries Not Visible Unless Re-Saved

After working normally, my phpMyFAQ installation now is refusing to show FAQs that were previously entered, unless I go to the Administrative section and "re-save" them. By "re-save" I mean I must go to the edit FAQ function and while the FAQ is on the screen click save, even though the entry was al...

Re: Consolidated Configuration Controls

Hi, you are right, that our documentation could be much much better. 1. First, to the maximum extent possible, all "option switches" and other controls should be consolidated in a master configuration file with detailed documentation and comments in the code. Most of them are in one database table ...

Consolidated Configuration Controls

Although phpMyFAQ has a lot of options built into the code that can be used to change various parameters, adjust the look and feel, and so on, they are generally scattered through the code, and often accessible only by modifying the php files. Several things can be done to make it easier to access t...

Re: What Template (.tpl ) System / Tools are Used in phpMyFA

Re: Viewing User and Group Rights

Hi, the group rights overrule the user's rights. So a user cannot have any right, but if she's or he's a member of a group with permissions, she or he can access. ......

Viewing User and Group Rights

I am attempting to setup some group permissions and am unsure how to view what rights a specific user has after they are assigned to a group. Specifically, say a user registers and I assign that user the rights A, B, E, H, and M. Subsequently, I add that user to a group, G-3, which has the rights: A...

Firefox Cut/Paste and Spell Check Issues - Partial Solution

For those of you that are interested, I have found a partial solution to the issues with Firefox than do not allow cutting / pasting into the FAQ editor, as well as disabling the Firefox real time spell checker. Basically, what I show below is a "work-around" and is probably most useful to administr...

Firefox Spell Checking on Data Entry

The automatic spell checking feature in Firefox does not seem to work when writing FAQ descriptions in the new FAQ text entry form. It seems as if something that PMF's editor is doing disables Firefox's spell checker; Is there a way to fix this?

Import FAQ Data From Flat Files

Is there a way to load the FAQ data into phpMyFAQ in bulk by creating the FAQs in something like a word processor and then loading them into the system? What I am thinking is that it would be easier to do the FAQ writing in a word processor and then create a "flat," or text, file of the results whic...
