Nice but has issues...
By , for WP 3.8.2

A client introduced me to this plugin and it looked promising.

However, it has some issues that hopefully the developer can address:

1.) Upon installation the plugin automatically creates the "Ask a Question" and the "List of Questions" pages. While this is a nice feature, it unfortunately ignores the page template I need to use with my theme and puts a sidebar on the right using a the "default" sidebar. Both of which are not desired.

2.) I looked into the plugin documentation and discovered it does have some shortcodes available. So I created a new page for my "Ask a Question" and used the short code: "[dwqa-submit-question-form]". What I then discovered was that you have to keep the plugin settings set to the original page it created "DWQA Ask Question", otherwise if you change it to the page you manually created it will revert to it's default page template and sidebar.

3.) Ok, so that's not too bad - I just have to keep those 2 pages around and it will work. Unfortunately again, there is another issue. When I went to the List of Questions page I made using this shortcode "[dwqa-list-questions]", I hadn't entered any questions yet, so underneath the empty list it displayed this text: "Sorry, but nothing matched your filter.You can ask question http://mysite.com/dwqa-ask-question/"

The Problem with that is I am not using the "dwqa-ask-question" page because the template is wrong. :(

Conclusion:
So while this plugin looked promising, until these issues are addressed I can't use it nor recommend it to my clients.

Oh, and one more thing, the Link it showed to the ask a question page was incorrectly linked to the current "List of Questions" page. So not very useful.

Would love it if it didn't crash
By ,

The look is okay, the idea is great...I activared the plugin and within a few minute, working on the css, it broke a couple of my tables (but I always have a backup so no damage other than my time). I tried a couple times to make sure it was not anything I had going already but it does the same thing with no other plugins running. I'll wait until there is one that doesn't mess me up!

Good but .....
By , for WP 3.8.1

it's a good plugin, i like it, but it messed up with my Jarid's theme
when i choose my DW page to use single page it didn't worked, still show the sidebar but not in proper position..

and then visitor is very easy to ask a question, without registration they can register an account through ask a question,

but yet, your plugin is awesome.

Useless
By ,

This plugin has nice future scope and can be applied for various site.This single plugin it itself have strong features and one of the strongest element of your website for support/Faqs/Tickets/Community/forum/usergroup platform/voting/Q&A
.
Developer must be appreciated for this.

Only as a genuine user my remarks would, you should also create a video tutorial to simplify this. This hardly will take an hr to do. Every time you cannot ask user to share admin panel to configure by dwqa team.
