Wish I Found This Sooner
By ,

I absolutely love CM Answers! I discovered this plugin by accident, and just had to get it. I have a WordPress blog where users write in questions and other users are able to answer them. I have been doing everything manually for the past few months, and I'm so mad at myself that I didn't discover CM Answers sooner.

Easy to download and install, plus it contains no bugs. Everything works flawlessly! What I like most about it is, it allows the users to post questions and answers in a well organized, Stackoverflow format. Love the incorporation of social media login as well; since everyone uses social media these days! Makes the registration process for my users super easy and convenient.

Also love the ability to customize it, so I can change up the styles every once in awhile to give my users a fresh feel. Overall, very happy with this plugin and just wish I knew about it sooner!

Great Plugin I Love It :)
By , for WP 3.9.1

LOVE this plugin! It installs easily and started working without a hitch in almost no time. It seems to be working pretty solid as well. This plugin appears to be really well designed and certainly is EXACTLY what I need for a new site.

Car with no Doors and wheels

This looked real promising until I installed and got slapped with the "Pro version available".

Though it seems like a nice plugin, it's completely worthless unless you shell out $30 to get the stuff you need.

I don't play the strong arm tactic. Tell me theres going to be a cost BEFORE you waste my time and energy.

Good QA plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plug in is easy to instal and set up. I think that it is very good at what it does but I do have two complaints.

1. It is QA, but it is not similar to stack overflow (part of what they advertise) in that there is not point system. Users do not accumulate points for participating.

2. The custom sidebar does not integrate well with my theme on mobile sites. It leaves large white spaces in the header. I've tried turning off the /answers page and recreated the same functionality using shortcodes; however, the documentation is rather unusable and there is only one example (the site mentions a video, but the link goes to a list of the shortcodes). The solution to my problem is that CM Answers releases a responsive version. They said this was in the pipeline in 2013, but still waiting. Once this is taken care of I will change my ration to 4 stars.

For 5 stars I would like to have a point system like stack overflow.

Installs well, works great!
By , for WP 3.8.1

LOVE this plugin! It installs easily and started working without a hitch in almost no time. It seems to be working pretty solid as well. This plugin appears to be really well designed and certainly is EXACTLY what I need for a new site.

My only disappointment is that the free version doesn't really honor my theme's CSS with regard to page layout. (Edit) Now that I have purchased the Pro, the pages generated by the plugin appear as if they are absolutely native to the rest of the site - all .css formatting, containers, etc. are identical to the rest of the site's theme.(/edit)

Hi,

I've just installed and activated CM Answers plugin on my customizr theme. Are they compatible as I can't seem to get them to work?

Any advice welcome.
