Change number of items in 'Most popular' and Latest FAQs

Post by admin@dingley.net » Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:45 am

Hi guys,

I'm making good progress on modding the FAQs in my site. http://choicelink.com.au/faq-2/ however because I need to use an iframe and my skills to produce a variable height frame are non-existent I'd like to reduce the number of entries in the right hand sidebar.

Doesn't look like I can change anything in the admin area, so what file and file variable can I adjust to limit the entries to 3 or 5 per sidebar box?

BTW, I just found a program called windows grep that has helped me find any text in the zipped phpmyfaq files and has saved me heaps of time. Recommend it to any other newbies out there looking to make changes and don't know where to look. It will search any type including .php and .css files.

8) Muchly appreciated - thanks. Took 30 secs and all done.

FAQ moding complete for now. For those wanting to see an example of the changes visit noro.com.au/aardvark

Happy to answer basic questions but please note I am a newbie and not a programmer or web developer. Email admin at aardvark dot net dot au

Thank you Thorsten and team :)

PS: To all forum readers - I highly recommend phpMyFAQ for 3 reasons:

It works.
It is better than most, if not all, other FAQ packages.
It is well supported, and has been for some years.

I seem to have the same problem althought I cannot compare it directly. Thanks for the question.
