How To Use The FAQ Element

The FAQ Element allows you to add a customized range of your FAQ Custom Post Type items anywhere into your content.

For this element to work, you must have previously created FAQ items in the FAQ Custom Post Type, found on your main WordPress menu. Once you have FAQs, (and these can also be sorted into categories) you can use the FAQ Element to quickly place them throughout your content. You can add a single category or multiple categories, or you can exclude categories. There are also various ways of sorting the FAQs, and they can be treated as Toggles or Accordions. There are also a number of other styling options about size, color, icons, and alignment.

Once you have completed styling your FAQ Element, remember to save your changes.

Read below for a detailed description of all element options.

Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
