Rated 3 out of 5 by NobleHouse Great FAQ extension, works great but could use some changes.
It works as advertised but please move the files in /app/design/frontend/default/default/inic to /app/design/frontend/bqse/default/inic
/amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/default/default/css/inic to /amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/base/default/css/inic
/amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/default/default/images/inic to /amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/base/default/images/inic
and /amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/default/default/js/inic to /amanvida.eu/skin/frontend/base/default/js/inic
This way the extension will work OUT OF THE BOX for everyone, not only those who are using the default magento template.
For those of you who prefer to have the 'FAQ' configuration in the CMS menu in the admin panel instead of the seperate 'inic' menu(which doesn't really say much). Go to /app/code/community/Inic/Faq/etc/adminhtml.xml
and change the menu tag to
<faq translate="title" module="faq">
<item translate="title" module="faq">
<category translate="title" module="faq">
Log out of your admin panel and back in and now you will have the menu moved to the CMS instead of a separate button.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sashagudenko Useful Free Extension
Useful extension but with some bug. First of all, issue in the question/answer editing page. Undefined variable in line "return $return" should me replaced on "return $this" or just "return;" Also, there are some bugs and issues on the frontend side. Particularly the problem is in search results. Undefined variable $id. The search form action method don't use any validation of data. Category and back link consist secure prefix.
Resume: useful free extension but with some bugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paulus Works fine
MySQL errors? check previous FAQ installs and remove those tables. Easy does it.
Usesometweaks from this review page and you're all set.
Might take a few hours to setup 100%, but so does creating new FAQsevery time.
For the money? great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pauld Works very well!
I use 18.104.22.168
if you follow all the instructions given by other people in this review is area, you'll have no problem at all, it's nice and easy to use.
Just remember the usual:
move the files if you're using a custom theme
clear the cache
log out and log back in again
In response to some other questions here: if you want to change URL from /faq just open upConfig.xml
And change the front name from faq to whatever you want. As you can see from the above, I changed it because my website sells badge machines.
I hope that's helpful to somebody, regards, Paul

Rated 5 out of 5 by GijsL With the little help of the reviewers, this module works perfect
This is really a powerful module! It costs a little time to setup because it doesn't work directly in Magento 1.9 but with the little help of the reviewers, it helped me to get this module to work and I really like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by gediweb Good extension, but no documentation
Installed with no problems. The back-end seems to work as described, but there is no documentation on how to show the FAQ's on the front-end.
I finally figured it out. You have to go to /faq/ on the front-end. Ok. But the page was blank...
- I had to move all the "inic" folders from the /app/design/frontend/default/default to my own theme folders
(also do the same for the /skin folders)
- Refresh your cache
- Showed up as pictured!
Hope this helps someone

Rated 4 out of 5 by lalitchandnani 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.
