At first glance : easy installation, looks good, simple admin. Then, problems start : move category or cut and paste category prevent you to modify your category tree as you want. I lost 2 categories this way. Time lost, no way I could use it safely.
At first glance, it looks good... until you try to modify it. Seven years since the last review and nothing much has changed. Yes, it's a template based system. Are other templates available? No. Something as simple as a company logo? No. Be prepared to be/hire a web programmer to wade through the code to make even the most basic of changes.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
On a first glance, I am impressed with the script. Functionally it does (most) everything what such script should do. But, I am afraid, that there is rather non-tecnical issue here. Although the script's appearance depends on a 'template' design, potential user is forced to dive into the script so deep, that it really becomes the question of take-it/make-it, if he wish to have not-so-very-canned appearance. I realize (though), that it is easy to blab, when outhere is somebody doing all the work for you (at no cost). But at the same time it is also true - if I were somekind of programer - I'd be able to do it myself, or - I'd be able to adapt it myself to my needs. Since I am poor at being creative at any sort of graphical design, plus since I am a poor excuse of a programmer, I am it giving lower rating than it deserves if looking exclusively through what the progam does.
I have used phpmyFAQ for some time and even upgraded to new version. All the time I had problems with this software - it was buggy, almost not customizable to suit my design and difficult to manage. When question was had been posted I had to answer it and then even delete the former posting as it would be always in New questions thread. I have never used XML and PDF export and even if it could be handy I doubt it's widely used.
This FAQ is so east to install and configure, it's almost no fun! :) A nice and easy template system makes it easy to change the look. The developers has done a great job! Thank you! :)
