The Alliance of Mobile & Party DJs (AMPdj) 60 Second DJ Digest

Setting Up a Useful Q&A Page on Your Website

Website FAQsVisitors to your website are usually looking for information. A 'FAQ' (Frequently Asked Questions) page is a great way to enable them to quickly find exactly what they are looking for.

If you have just a few Q&As then you can simply publish them together on a page. If you have a lot more then it makes sense to group them into subject areas.

You can have the answer displayed below each question however this can make for a long page. The preferred method is for each question to be a clickable link and the answer becomes visible when the visitor clicks on the question.

There are many ways to achieve this. Here on the AMPdj site we did use JavaScript until recently but this does become an issue if a browser has JavaScript disabled. During a recent search for an alternative we found one that just uses CSS to produce the desired effect and you can see the results of our new system on the Questions Page. The other trick we liked is that as a new question is selected, the previous one closes 'automagically'!

To see how we did it you can either right click on this page and then select 'View Page Source' (also see the Technical Advice section further down this page to help you) or visit the authors page.

What to Cover:

Think of the most common questions you are asked. These could include:

  • What genres of music do you play?
  • What type of functions do you perform at?
  • Can I come and see you perform before I book?
  • How much do you charge?
  • Do you require a deposit?
  • How long do you normally play for?
  • Can you provide background music during the meal?
  • Are you loud?
  • How long do you need to setup?
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

Example 'Drop-down' Q&A

We provide some great tangible and worthwhile benefits for our members which is probably why AMPdj is the largest Organisation for Mobile DJs in the UK with 2 out of every 3 mobile DJs choosing AMPdj as the one to join. We also do all this for the fantastic price of £49.

Are we the best for YOU and your business? Have a read of the site and if you're still undecided give us a call on 0333 577 2247 (Calls charged at normal landline rate and included in applicable call/bundle packages).

If you are a singer, musician or in a band or tribute act then you may find our sister organisation AMPband.co.uk would be more suitable for you.

Technical Notes

If you are using the source of this page to find how it works then look in the header for the 14 lines of CSS code. You can copy this and also make changes to the background colours and other design elements in this section. Comments have been included in the source code to help locate the start and finish of the relevant parts of coding.

The actual Q&A section starts with div class="row1" (which has the comment "Start Q&A Block"). To add extra questions take the full tag section that starts div class="tab" (from comment "Start Single Question Block" to "End Single Question Block"), copy it and paste it immediately below the first block (ie so that it is still within the "row1" and "col1" div) and change the id="rd1" to id="rd2" (2 places).

You can repeat this process for the total number of questions required - changing the "id=" for each one to the next number in sequence.
