Also, I replaced my footer.php with the latest version that implements the changes you've made and I can see my custom template in Add New FAQ on the administration side (YAY!). However, if I am in the non-admin section of phpMyFAQ and click on Add New FAQ>Insert>Template, it tells me "No templates defined".
I'd like to request that as a feature. I could see where non-admin users would find certain templates useful. Personally, I like entering new FAQs from the front end page just because it's quicker/easier to get to.
I could see value in being able to have "personal" templates, but I imagine that requires a much larger effort for implementation. I think templates could be fleshed out to:
Universal: Available to all, including guest
Corporate: Available to authenticated users
Group: Available to users in a group
Personal: Available only to the authenticated user that created it
I'm not a developer myself, but I imagine some of these scenarios would require significantly more work to implement than others. In addition, a GUI method of saving something as a template would be required, I think this would be fantastic to have in itself.
