Very useful extension but little Buggy!!
An excellent extension, provides basic functionality which any body would like to have in their eCommerce store for FAQs but unfortunately, it's little buggy which is not justifing the effort put on building it.
I'll mention below, what issues i found with the extension and how i fixed them (which most of the people already reported). This might help people facing same issues, also probably IndiaNIC can release the next version considering these issues.
Bug 1: Search not working.
Reason: Search results page expect a parameter (cat_id) which if not provided from originating page, it results in an error.
Add a line with code $id=""; in 'app/design/frontend/default/default/template/inic/faq/search/result.phtml' file at line 6 after line with code $category="";
Also, at line 17(elseif condition) change $id="" to $id=="".
Bug 2: Undefined variable: return -- Backend Error.
Reason: Use of non existing variable.
Solution: In file "app/code/community/Inic/Faq/Block/Adminhtml/Item/Edit/Tab/Main.php" on line 32 change "return $return;" to "return;"
Doing this much should make the setup work.
Few people might face issue with location of css, js, template and layout files but what practice is followed by developer here is correct. For your setup you can specify the default theme at System -> Configuraiton -> Design.

Worked fine, no problems whatsoever
Installed and worked flawlessly in first attempt. Yes i had to copy files to custom theme, as with any other extension.

Showing empty in front-end
All back-end stuffs are working fine, and it automatically adds a URI faq, but pulling empty content.

Complete waste of time
Only the backend functions work as described. The folder- and path-structure in the installation-package ist totally wrong.
The FAQ in Magento Connect is completely ignored by the developer team.
Installation in 30 Seconds - Fixing in 3 hours.
Complete waste of time.
Don't take it.
