Adding FAQ using Shortcodes/Shortcode builder

With our latest update (v0.2), you could now use our Helpie shortcode builder to add shortcodes easily with a click of button. When you add a new post or a page, you could see an option “Add Helpie Shortcode” button near the Add Media option below the title section.

When you select that, you will be asked to select a shortcode. Under that, select Helpie shortcode which will display the Helpie shortcode with all the filtering options available. You can modify anything you wish under it.

You can also use the shortcode [ helpie_faq ] in the content area of any page you want, to display the FAQ. (without the spaces)

  • If you want to change the title in the FAQ, use the shortcode:
    [ helpie_faq title=xxxx ] (without the spaces). You can give any title you wish.
  • If you want to display only certain categories, you can use the shortcode:
    [ helpie_faq categories=xxxx ] (without the spaces) (Remember you should provide the category id here instead of the name. You can find the id of each category by hovering below the category name. Go to Helpie FAQ -> FAQ categories and just hover towards any category and you will see a big url in the bottom and you can find a number in that which is the category id. Please check the screenshot below)

  • If you want to change the theme of the faq, you can use the shortcode:
    [ helpie_faq theme=light ] (without the spaces). You can either use the light theme or dark theme.
  • If you want to set the toggle to ON or OFF, you can use the shortcode:
    [ helpie_faq toggle=ON ] (without the spaces). You can set it to either On or Off.
