Widget for searching / displaying results - javascript

Post by clenaman » Tue Nov 27, 2018 8:44 pm

We would like to have a "HELP" widget displayed in the corner of our website that when clicked opens a small box on screen and allows user to search all FAQ results. Does something simple like this already exist? Thinking it is some CSS, Javascript and AJAX that is used.

Here is a sample of the type of interface:

The results begin to filter as the user types in the "enter a question" field.
Results appear below...in same space as "Topics"

Any suggestions would be very helpful!

Bump. Does this make sense? Creating a widget that pulls from phpMyFaq and displays results.

make sense?

Hi,

sure, that would make sense, it's easy to implement using our REST API.

Ah even easier than going native... thought there might already be something out there that fits this need within the community.
Thanks for the info. Appreciate the response.
