  • Open all questions or close all questions button at the top and bottom.
  • Open/Close all button appears at the bottom of the FAQ list if Open All button at the top is activated for easier navigation.
  • Open/Close All buttons may bepublished or unpublished.
  • Active/Inactive state for greater accessibility and functionality.
  • Ability to add read more link which when clicked takes the user to the full content item.
  • Order questions by created date, modified date, title descending, title ascending, most popular or primary ordering.


First make sure you install the module using the Joomla Installer in the administration, and then that you've published the module into the position you desire. Then you will be ready to change and configure the settings.

Go into the Joomla Administrator, and find the Module Manager. Here you will see a list of all modules, and go through until you see the JFlickr module. Click on the title and you will see the parameters that you can adjust for the module. When you need more information about a setting, roll over the text to the left and a tooltip will appear. Make sure to hit save when you are done.

Module Parameters

The FAQ is actually incredibly easy to style.

  • The images used to show the active/inactive state of the module can be found in the modules/mod_jbFAQ/images directory and are called by the css file.
  • The open and closed state can be controlled by applying CSS attributes to the .open and .closed css rules. This can be done in the css file in the module directory oi styles can be added directly to your template_css.css file.
  • The question link can be styled by adding attributes to the a.toggler class.
  • The module itself can be styled using a module class suffix.
  • The question is controlled by the class 'togglerdiv' and the answer is controlled by the use of the 'answer' class.
  • The read more link uses the same styling as the read more link in your template.


I installed the module, but cannot see it?

When you install the module, it is setup in the module position 'left' and also disabled. Check that you have moved it to the appropriate module position, and that it is enabled.

Do I need jQuery?

Yes, the module requires it. If you are already loading the JB Library, make sure to disable the loading of jQuery in this module's settings.

Images are not loading, why?

This is possible for a few reasons. If jQuery is already included on your site by the template or another extension, then make sure to disable it in in JB FAQ. Also if there is an incorrect user or photoset id, then it may not display anything.

Happy Campers
