A serious release update for DNN FAQ: 05.00.00

In March of this year I made some blog posts about my intentions with FAQ and I have (or I should say, we have, since Torsten Weggen joined the FAQ team) reached a serious new target: a complete conversion to C# and some major enhancements. The result: FAQ 05.00.00, which available for download on CodePlex.

Release notes DNN FAQs 05.00.00

FAQs 05.00.00 will work for any DNN version 5.6.1 and up. Full details on the changes can be found in detail at We appreciate if you would to give this release a review/rating while your are on CodePlex... Feel free to do so. And, for the record, stars are welcome.


  • Manage Categories button text was not localized
  • Edit/Add FAQ Entry: button text was not localized


  • Categories can now be configured hierarchical
  • Categories that have no corresponding FAQ are no more displayed.


  • Added an option to select the control for category display:
    • Listbox with checkboxes (flat category display, left to FAQs)
    • Treeview (hierarchical category display, left to FAQs)
    • Dropdownlist (flat category display, top of FAQs)
  • Added an option to show the category description as a tooltip when hovering over the category (only listbox and treeview)
  • Added an option to show a sortbox for FAQs
  • Added a possiblity to sort FAQs as an administrator with up- and down arrows ("Predefined Order"). (Only visible in edit mode and only if all FAQs are displayed)
  • Full support for DNN tokenreplace


  • Solution is converted to C#
  • The default templates are now a little bit "fancier"
  • Removed unused SPROC and related methods
  • Improved fault tolerance of SQL Uninstall script

What is next?

During testing in the DNN release tracker, some minor issues were marked.Thank you, Sebastian, for noting these down. We will create an update to resolve most of not all of these smaller issues. Next, we will implement the new form UX/UI pattern of DNN6. This change will require DNN 6.1.x as minimum level, so start upgrading to the latest version if you have not done so.

Thank you

The FAQ team would like to thank everyone who contributed to this release. It is nice to experience positive feedback on the work that we, DNN FAQ team volunteers, are carrying out.
