Pubble Realtime Q&A Plugin

Pubble is a Q&A plugin for your WordPress blog, website, &/or Facebook page to crowdsource the best FAQs for whatever you provide.

Q: Does Pubble have a free plan?

A: Yes. See details on: Get Started

Q: What is pubble Q&A all about?

A: Pubble is about helping sites to create communities online, and also about helping people to get answers to commonly asked questions, using "The world's best FAQ" We are rolling out new features so we'll keep you informed as we grow!

Q: Do you support custom styling?

A: Yes. You can customise the look and feel to match the style of your WordPress blog / site.

Q: Do you support moderation?

A: Yes. You can assign moderators right down to the individual page level.

Q: Does Pubble help with my SEO?

A: Yes. We get this question a lot. Google will index the threads in the plugins directly but if you wish, we also support options for you to include the Q&A threads (content) natively on your pages.

Q: Are questions answered in realtime?

A: Depends on how quick the moderator can type! Pubble supports realtime posting for Questions and Answers.

Q: How does this work? It is a plugin?

A: Yes. We support various "plugin" options depending on which platform that you run your site on.

Q: How does this differ from WordPress Comments?

A: Commenting and Q&A might look similar when they are presented in the threaded layout that Pubble supports. However, the purpose of Q&A is very different to Commenting. For example, some people will want to add their question privately. Pubble supports this. For moderators, they get tired of answering the same questions over and over. To reduce duplicate questions, Pubble includes an answer prompt for questions that have already been answered. Such functionality would be totally at odds with what a commenting platform is designed to achieve.

Q: Does Pubble support social sharing?

A: Yes. Questions or answers can be tweeted / posted to Facebook / shared to LinkedIn.

Q: How to disable Pubble QA in specfic pages?

A: You can directly disable pubble Q&A on individual wordpress pages and posts. Here's how:

  1. Go to pages in wordpress.

  2. Click on any one page (ie about)

  3. Click on 'Screen Options' at the top and enable the 'Discussion' option.

  4. At the bottom of the page you will have a 'Discussion' window with an 'Allow Comments' option. Simply uncheck that and all is fine.

You can use the same procedure to disable comments on any post. The confusing thing is only that WordPress hides the Discussion options on page and posts pages by default.
