Good FAQ manager with indexing capability?


I'm currently looking for a basic, web-based FAQ manager which would support at least indexing, and possibly other features (that I can't think of right now :-)). I've looked at FAQGen last night (, but it doesn't seem to support an indexing/search feature.

Before I spend more time trying them out, could someone experienced recommend such a tool?

Thx much

Hi Fred

Check out

The first few in each category will be fairly good. Read the reviews there.

Ultimately, it will come down to your personal preferences, needs and resources. Perl/python/php. Flatfile or mysql. One faq per script or one script that manages a collection. One user or multiuser.

Hope that helps

Oddly, I didn't see FAQ-o-Matic listed there.

Thx guys. I went through the list, found a bunch of tools, some free, others commercial, and settled with a basic, no-brainer Perl CGI script.

A list is available here:

Thx again
