1. Make a posting so that it will be added to an appropriate FAQ list
When reviewing new postings, administrators can choose to make it an FAQ.
To do this, admin can click "make an FAQ"
The form opens up.
It has date and ID of moderator/admin on it.
Then it has a field for the Title of the Post
Then it has the Posting in an editable box
Then it has fields for FAQ. These are:
A. Question title
B. Key Words (text box with comma separated words)
C. Category - (checkboxes - can click more than one) General, Symptoms, Diseases, Infection, Diagnosis, Treatment, Epidemiology, Basic Science. This field is for indexing and searching later.
D. Primary category, a dropdown list which shows the chosen categories from C above, so that the user can choose which actual FAQ list the answer will appear in.
Then “apply” causes the answer to be formatted for a sequential FAQ and added appropriately to the searchable FAQ list.
The posting should contain an automatically generated ID such that it can be edited later and then the FAQ can be updated with the new changes being incorporated into the FAQ (i.e. the old FAQ entry from that posting is sent to a backup FAQ field and is overwritten with the new entry).
The form to do this all should be just one page - and there should be an attractive interface with appropriate symmetry. The attached file is a mock-up I have made which might show the idea. It is not complete and the programmer should do a better layout than this.
The web site is [url removed, login to view] it has a link on it for the current FAQ and the Discussion Forums.
I believe that a person with skills related to PHPBB boards would complete this task in less than 1 day.
