Configuring the FAQ building block

The FAQ building block editor is composed of three editing screens: Data, Settings, and Design.
The settings in the Settings editing screen determine how your block will function, Data allows you maintain the content of the block, and the settings in the Design screen determine its aesthetics.

Settings

There are several aspects of your FAQ block that can be changed in this screen:
  • The name of the block
  • The icon (or image) that will be used in the app menu
  • The top image for the FAQ screen
  • Allow users to be able to share the events via twitter, Facebook, or email
Should the need arise to keep the users of your published app from using this portion of the app, then you can always make use of the ON/OFF selector.
Slide the selector to OFF to keep users from seeing the FAQ block. Now you can continue developing your app without worrying about users coming upon areas that you haven't finished developing as of yet. Once you are satisfied with your progress, change the selector back to ON to publish this portion of your app.

Data

This is where you add the the questions and answers to your list.

Design

The Design screen allows your to make highly detailed changes to your building block. Design gives the developer a remarkable amount of freedom to adjust everything exactly as he or she would like it.
