I downloaded and installed the Glossary/FAQ module a couple of days to use it for FAQs. I liked the help and the module seems well thought out. Overall, it servers my needs. However, I do have a few refinements that I think would be helpful. I have listed them below.

The module doesn't allow grouping of the Terms by category in the Admin panel. This means that if you wanted to use the module for both FAQs and a Glossary on the same site, it would be difficult to identify your FAQs from your Glossary Terms.

Another challenge is the text entry forms use html instead of a WYSIWYG editor. This means that if your text has a comma or other character the open/close Java template doesn't expand to show the definition. This isn't a good thing if I have to turn this over to a client to manage.

The module is really designed as a Glossay although you can use it for FAQs. Is it possible to add an option to specify its use as a Glossary or FAQs and to change the labels accordingly in the Admin panel. In the interim, is there an easy way to change the labels in the Admin panel from "Term" and "Definition" to "Question" and "Answer" in the code?

Lastly, an automatic numbering feature for the Terms with an option to select numbering within a category or for all Tems in the module would be nice. Adding a separate field or function to manually define a label or ID for the Terms would be nice too.

I hope I'm not asking too much. Thanks!

Jab...

For the labels, you can change the language file for any module. Ideally copy it (and its path) to assets/module_custom before making any edits, so you don't lose them on upgrade.

so copy the lang/en_US.php file from the Glossary module folder to:
assets/module_custom/Glossary/lang/en_US.php and edit away. You may need to clear the cache after.

For your feature requests, you may wish to file them at http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/feature_request/list/42 and mention any sponsorship you're able to give, if possible. I sponsored most of the changes after the initial release, and the 2.x update, but it currently meets my needs so I won't currently be sponsoring any more changes.
