I searched the forums and searched the FAQ and I can't find the answer to this silly, pesky problem.

I published the default FAQs and they have a Filter field and a Display # dropdown at the top.

How do I turn those off?

In fact, I don't even want the bar above them that says "Article #".
I just want a list of numbered faqs.

In J1.0, I could go to Menu, choose FAQ, then go to parameters and there was a toggle for filter and display #. Where are they in J1.5?

Thanks

Hi cra2.

What FAQs have you published - I don't think Joomla 1.5 has a FAQs extension?

I think this should be done in the menu item settings! Menus > mainmenu >Faqs

Hi cra2,

I'm not sure that it is completely in the Menu settings any more. There's a discussion thread here that gives several possible fixes. The one that involves adding paramteres to the xml file is probalby the safest.

You're correct Bob..
there is not a faqs "extension."
There's just the FAQs section which you can see with sample data installed if you publish it.
It already has the standard sample Joomla categories of Questions with some sample answers.

I wish it were that easy.
Please tell us which setting you're referring to.

I'm boggled that this slipped through into J1.5.
After searching now I've seen TONS of threads on this silly issue which was so intuitive back in J1.

bob, I followed the link to that thread you mentioned.
Sure enough, there was one suggestion for a parameters fix that worked easily (I copied it below for anyone else looking for the answer). However, I still have a title bar above the list of FAQs that says Article (sort by). And I want to turn that off too. Anyone know how?

there is a way to hide article filter in sections

just add the parameters in default.xml (com_content/views/section/tmpl)

<param name="filter" type="radio" default="1" label="Filter" description="Show/Hide the Filter ability">
<option value="0">Hide</option>
<option value="1">Show</option>
</param>
<param name="show_pagination_limit" type="radio" default="1" label="Display Select" description="Show/Hide the Display Select dropdown">
<option value="0">Hide</option>
<option value="1">Show</option>
</param>

after that you get the options under parameters for the menu item (section table)
