The Genesis Simple FAQ plugin and widget

To use the FAQ widget you will first need to install and activate the Genesis Simple FAQ plugin

Make some FAQs

  • Go to Dashboard > Simple FAQs > Add New
  • Type your question in the Title box (required).
  • Type your answer into the Content Editor (required).
  • Click publish.

The demo site has six FAQs.

You can organise your FAQs into categories if you wish. But categories are optional and for this tutorial we won’t be using them.

Displaying the FAQs in Front-Page-6 widget area

After making six FAQs…

  1. Drag the Genesis Simple FAQ widget into the Front-Page-6 widget area.
  2. Type a widget title.

You don’t need to make any other adjustments to the Genesis Simple FAQ widget settings, it should just work out of the box.
