FAQ forum order

Post by php_mike »

I am trying to create a forum to be used as an FAQ but posts are not making any sense, in no particular order.
I can try changing the titles and it makes no difference.

How could I possibly have posts in some specific order so members know that they are created in this way?

For one, users can choose their own topic and post sortorder so you'ld have to avoid/bypass that .
The only thing that comes to mind that could fix that easily would be the pages extension, or make one long post in which you define what comes first, second, etc...
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

How about numbering the topics? Then you could use the Sort Topics extension to force the topics to show alphabetically.

Yes, I was wondering about an extension and didn't know about that. I'll take a look.

I try to use mainly official ones but in this case, it really should be in some kind of order.

Thanks very much for the input.

The Sort Topics extension has not been updated since 2018.
How safe it is to use?

You should ask in the extensions support topic.

Sure. I thought maybe the author was checking posts.

Thanks.
