When you edit any question in the FAQ, Friday displays the number assigned to this particular question (e.g. FAQ00037) in a text box at the bottom of the editor screen.
The answer for the question with this number is stored in a file called FAQ00037.TXT in the \FAQ folder.
There's a more detailed description of where Friday stores your FAQ information elsewhere in this Help FAQ. See Friday's file layout - where does Friday store your information?
Friday can also give you a detailed status report for your FAQ. This report lists all the headings and questions in your FAQ, tells you whether the question is held or not, whether the HTML for the question is up to date, and the name of the TXT file the answer is stored in.
To see the report, hold down the Shift key while you click Question
Friday creates a report that looks like this:

FAQ00130.TXT NONE I've never generated HTML from this question
REDO = The question or answer has been edited since you last created HTML
NONE = The question/answer has never been converted to HTML
held = The question is on hold.
Friday can optionally generate a file called FAQList.htm (or FAQList. + your chosen default extension) that lists the questions and names of answer files in your FAQ, along with any headings. It creates this file in your HTML folder and automatically uploads it to your site along with the other html files.
This feature is off by default. To turn it on, change the 0 to 1 in the following line, found in the [App] section of your FQA files (or add the line if it's not already there):
MakeLinkList=1 ; Optionally, add this line to control the name of the files Friday creates LinkFileName=YourChosenFilename
When MakeLinkList=0, Friday checks for FAQList.htm and deletes it if it exists. This is so that if you turn the feature back off, Friday doesn't keep uploading the old, outdated FAQList.htm file to your web server.
