Updating Forum Module Settings (i.e. default FAQ)

How does one update the default settings of the Forum module?  Specifically, I want to change the FAQ to be specific to my company rather than to odoo.  Also, why is there not a link to how to do this directly within the default FAQ?  In case, I am not being clear, I want to change the text under the "Read Guidelines" link, which goes to the url mysite.com/forum/help-1/faq




update: I'm including a screenshot to show that the "edit" button is greyed out as the Administrator

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Good question!

The file is named forum_default_faq.html 

I have no idea if odoo has an edit mechanism to change the file of if you need to do some hacking.

Thanks Steve! I'll definitely take a look at this. There should be a way to do this via the edit mechanism, but it's not working. I found the following issue on Github that seems to be related to this problem. If they find a solution there, I'll post an update here. https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/1708
