Suppose you want to display your FAQs as accordion. Now from Select Dynamic Display select box you will be able to choose the category you added. When you choose a category, all the questions under this category will be listed with checkbox beside the each question. You can choose any of them.


Now you can choose any of the display option (Accordion, Scroll to answer, Simple question answer). As for example if you are adding accordion you will choose accordion. Click on save and publish your edits. Now in front end you can see the effects.
