Some proposals for new features

Post by Sunshadow »

Hi!

After testing phpmyfaq, I've got some proposals for new features:
- Configure different startpages (e.g. view with all categories as start page)
- multiple questions for one answer (sometimes a user has different questions which lead to the same answer)
- personal pinboard for faq
- different editor groups for FAQ categories
- show latest/most favorite FAQs by (top) category
- when using LDAP authorization the personal settings can be removed (or should be readonly and you don't need the password field)
- one template parser for all .tpl files to make it possible to use "modules" in all templates (ok, will be a lot of work... ;-) )

Statistics:
I don't know how the visits are calculated in the dashboard, but if it's only by IP keep in mind that user from a terminal server always have the same IP.

PS.:
I like this tool because it's not overloaded with useless features, easy to install and really nicely designed!

Hi,

some really great ideas!

I would be awesome if you put them into our issue tracker at Github: https://github.com/thorsten/phpMyFAQ/issues

It's a lot of work, but maybe some contributions will come in.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

awesome, thanks a lot.

I think the template engine request will be easy as we switch to Twig in v3.

Yes, Twig should solve the problem :-)

Hi all,

I see the multiple questions per FAQ Answer/Record was added 31 August 2016, I'm on v3.1.1 and I can't figure our how to add additional variations of the question per FAQ Record. Please can someone assist?

Regards,
Thorsten

Hi,

well, if more people are suggesting a feature, it's more likely I'll add it.

Here's the Github Issue: https://github.com/thorsten/phpMyFAQ/issues/1238
