customizing FAQ block

#137146
  • Hello,
    I would like to use RMs FAQ block but I find a couple of issues with it:
    1. I can’t sort FAQ items. It seems to be an issue that will hopefully will be solved in the future. Do you have any idea when it will be solved?
    2. Before I started using RM, I used my own FAQ blocks that I built in ACF and my own html markup. Are there any ways to use my own html markup in RMs FAQ Blocks?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention.

    1. Unfortunately, sorting and rearranging is not possible for Rank Math’s FAQ block right now but this is indeed a good feature to have.

    I have passed this on to our developers and hopefully, this will be added to our future development roadmap.

    2. HTML can be used in the Schema blocks. You can use the code below:

    add_filter( 'rank_math/json_ld', function( $data, $jsonld ) {
    	if( ! have_rows('acf-repeater-faq') ) {
    		return $data;
    	}
        $data['faqs'] = [
            '@type' => 'FAQPage',
        ];
        while( have_rows('acf-repeater-faq') ) {
    		the_row();
            $data['faqs']['mainEntity'][] = [
                '@type' => 'Question',
                'name'  => esc_attr( get_sub_field('faq_question') ),
                'acceptedAnswer' => [
                    '@type' => 'Answer',
                    'text'  => esc_attr( get_sub_field('faq_answer') ),
                ],
            ];
        }
        return $data;
    }, 10, 2 );

    Please note that you will need to create ACF Repeater fields, then change these fields in the above code

    acf-repeater-faq
    faq_question
    faq_answer

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.

    Hey Reinelle,

    I have the same issue.

    I replicated your suggestion, but it seems that the filter doesn’t catch the ACF Block (repeater).

    The Front-End (visual) is working as expected. But doesn’t show the Schema Markup for FAQPage.

    When I toggle
    "if( ! have_rows('acf-repeater-faq') "
    to
    if( have_rows('acf-repeater-faq')

    It shows a bit of information (until the while loop). This indicated the filter doesn’t find the ACF Block.

    I think the code needs to loop over the content to find and pull the data. Could you help with that?

    Got it resolved!

      add_filter('rank_math/json_ld', function ($data, $jsonld) {
                $pid = get_post();
    
                // check if acf is used
                if (function_exists('get_field')) {
                    if (has_blocks($pid)) {
                        $blocks = parse_blocks($pid->post_content);
    
                        // run trough acf gutenberg/acf-blocks and find the right one
                        foreach ($blocks as $block) {
                            // find all selected FAQs
                            if ($block['blockName'] == 'acf/faq') {
                                // Start building the FAQPage Schema
                                $data['faqs'] = [
                                    '@type' => 'FAQPage',
                                ];
                                // build new array from found FAQs
                                $block_data = $block['attrs']['data'];
                                // get total number of Q&A
                                $total_faq = $block_data['acf-repeater-faq'] - 1;
    
                                // loop X times according the number of Q&A
                                for ($x = 0; $x <= $total_faq; $x++) {
                                    // start bulding the Q&A Schema for each repeater
                                    $data['faqs']['mainEntity'][] = [
                                        '@type'          => 'Question',
                                        'name'           => esc_attr($block_data['acf-repeater-faq_' . $x . '_faq_question']),
                                        'acceptedAnswer' => [
                                            '@type' => 'Answer',
                                            'text'  => esc_attr($block_data['acf-repeater-faq_' . $x . '_faq_answer']),
                                        ],
                                    ];
                                }
                                return $data;
                            } else {
                                continue;
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
            }, 10, 2);
