The GenjFaqBundle allows you to display a FAQ on your website, with the questions being grouped in categories. Features:

  • Questions are grouped into Categories
  • Categories can be deactivated
  • Sonata admin module is provided
  • Can show all information at once, or collapse questions/categories for big FAQs
  • Collapsed mode generates SEO friendly URLs




Add this to your composer.json:

    "require": {
        "genj/faq-bundle": "dev-master"

Then run composer update. After that is done, enable the bundle in your AppKernel.php:

# app/AppKernel.php
class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles() {
        $bundles = array(
            new Genj\FaqBundle\GenjFaqBundle()

Add the routing rules to your routing.yml:

# app/config/routing.yml
    resource: "@GenjFaqBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"

Finally, update your database schema:

php app/console doctrine:schema:update

use the --force option to actually execute the DB update.

And you're done. You should now be able to reach the bundle under the URL.

Optional: enabling the admin tool


Optional: loading fixtures

If you use the doctrine-fixtures bundle, you can load fixtures like this:

php app/console doctrine:fixtures:load --fixtures=vendor/genj/faq-bundle/Genj/FaqBundle/Tests/Fixtures/Entity


You can optionally include the configuration below into your config.yml:

    select_first_category_by_default: false
    select_first_question_by_default: false

Both configuration options only apply to the collapsed view. They will open the first category and/or question by default if the user has not chosen a category and/or question yet. The default for both values is 'false', so set them to 'true' if you want this behaviour.

Note that it is also required to have the Sluggable and Timestampable behaviours configured for gedmo/doctrine-extensions (see


  • I want to add fields to my Question or Category


  • Sluggable Question unique within 1 category
