90. Problems

Any change you make to a topic header, no matter how insignificant, will result in the new one and the old one appearing in your FAQ. This means that in effect, you cannot alter an existing topic - you must create a new one (which you do when you make any change to your existing one) and then move all the sub-titles from the old one to the new one. After doing so, your old one will disappear.

I became an editor for a FAQ without proper numbering. How do I fix it?

Many of the FAQs on the site were not properly numbered as they were developed, and for that reason they can be difficult to work with.

To correct the numbering of topics, create a properly numbered category to take the place of the old one, and then edit each entry in the incorrectly numbered one selecting the new topic in the drop-down menu.

When you've completed "moving" all entries, the old topic will disappear.

I have no answer for this one.

I do. You cannot. Only a Site Superuser can make a FAQ go away.

I have duplicate numbered sections displayed in the FAQ, one is blank, but I don't see the duplicate when I'm editing it so I can't fix it.

How can I get rid of the duplicate?
    • Create new category
    • Copy over entries (copy/paste is easiest, but you'll lose the crediting of the submitter, so you'll need to put it in manually)
    • Delete the original entry
    • Delete category in the TOC
