Add FAQ button to the help section

Recommended Posts

Description: Simply add an FAQ button to the help section on a prominent position right next to the "Ask a question" button.

Optional: Overhhaul the FAQ section by adding or linking some guides. E. g. use search function & read the FAQ before posting. Answers will be closed after a certain period of inactivity by the OP author. Common solutions to common problems.

 

Reason:

Short version: It would take off some load from the moderation team and provide quicker answers to some of the questions.

 

Long version: I am still new and exploring the different areas of the forums. What I noticed is, that if you enter the help section you have the possibility to directly ask a question without seeing the solutions. I also skimmed through the open questions and through the solutions section and noticed, that some of the open questions are already answered by some of the solution posts or on other posts in the forums.

 

Example/Screenshot:

 

A great starting thread for the FAQ would be this one:

+1 I find a lot of people ask the same questions on the forums, and the search function can be a bit tricky to use.

I am not sure if it can be added as such button ( I doubt if IPB has ability to add custom buttons).

I can add redirection link to Guides/FAQ as subforum, however I'll need @LIGHTOFGOD to approve this, because this is related to the Help section and he has the final word for it

+1 I like the idea, it needs to be added for members who want to get a quick answer.
