#185 error while editing FAQ questions


Hi, I'm using version 1.8.2 and I came across a
possible bug with the FAQ feature. I created a new FAQ
and added one question to it. I then tried to go back
and edit that question, and i got the following error:

Invalid variable value : sort_mode =

I then tried to delete the question and got the same
error. I tried adding more questions (which worked
fine) and then editing those, and still received the
same error. I don't get these errors while editing
other objects in other parts of the site, like articles.

So, I copied and pasted the link that should allow me
to edit a question. That link is this:


If you look in that URL, you'll see


well, I removed the word "position" (and the comma)
from the sort_mode variable and I was then able to edit
the question just fine.

I googled for this error message and searched on the
main site for this error but found nothing. I'm going
to try to see if I can fix this myself, but I thought
you would like to know (as I'm assuming this isn't just
a problem on my end.

    i went into the tiki-faq_questions.php file and deleted both
    references of " position, " and now it works fine.
