#1326 closed bug (fixed)

Faq with faq.Active!='Active' should not be displayed on Faq pages

Reported by: jeanyves Owned by: shevek
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: BW General Keywords: Faq
Cc: sitatara, mahouni


This is a small thing forgotten with the rox move.

Purpose is to able to prepare an Faq without yet displaying it (to give time to fix the text) and also to disable an Faq if it got obsolete

Just one track notification I feel like to answer (sorry I cant follow all discussions, to much things to do in real life)

I am not sure it is good to wait for welen here.

It is an easy fix. I can't do it my self since I never succeed to setup a proper git (for test or produtcion)

The point is that several things have changed in BW (for example no more signup delay since there is no more accepting process). An now some Faq are completely meaningless and may be confusing.

1st solution: solve this ticket and set the old fashionned one to inactive, they will not provide anymore false information to member

2nd solution: fix all translated faq

3rd solution : wait for welen. I understand welen is more realistic than Drupal move, but neverless, it will take a few month so I strongly suggess to fix this small bug (solution 1) !

Well if it's easy to fix could you provide me a pointer to the relevant file?

And I do not understand how should that work? Currently if there is wrong information in the FAQ it should be rewritten in the English version and than updated in the relevant translation. That's how I understand the workflow.

currently we don't change the faqs much, so i would also simply leave this for welen

@Crumking : this should be build/about/about.model.php

line 67

try to replace

        $faqs = $this->bulkLookup(
FROM faq
            array('IdCategory', false)


        $faqs = $this->bulkLookup(
FROM faq where faq.Active='Active' 
            array('IdCategory', false)

@PlanetCruiser?, the current point is that several faq are old fashioned and should be disable (like the one about Signup delay, or or which is the old way to give someone right to translate your profile, i don't think this can work )

Hi JY,

checked your code locally but how do I change the FAQ status now?

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by sitatara

@crumbking: On the FAQs can be edited, and that includes setting their status to "not active".

Btw, @planetcruiser I am currently rewriting the FAQs, so this is a relevant issue right now.

From my point of view it's really problematic that this doesn't work because it means that old FAQs which have been deleted are still shown on the website, or rather just their word code. I suggest to implement a delete function for FAQs in welen but fix the current problem in Rox, so that we can at least hide FAQs which are outdated or where the text has been deleted.

For an example see: (there are several others like this on the current FAQ pages).

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from testing to closed

Tested: I set a few FAQs on "not active" and they aren't displayed on alpha any more.

comment:19 Changed 6 years ago by planetcruiser

tested ok (locally), a faq entry set to "Not active" on /bw/faq.php will not show up on /faq any more.

/bw/faq.php should redirect to /faq for non-admins btw. new ticket?

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
