A way to make "answer" posts, like in Tumblr, Formspring and Ask.fm

  • This has been asked a number of times, yet the threads are somewhat old so I want to know if there’s something newer. Are there any ideal plugins to make a form where people ask questions and they are archived in WordPress and can be answered with an individual post, sort of emulating features from Tumblr, Formspring and Ask.fm?

    Hi

    I do not know of any plugins that will do this out of the box.

    Not sure how comfortable you are with wordpress but this is how I would do it.

    1. Create a Custom Post Type called something like Questions
    2. Create a custom comment template comment file and add it to your theme comments-{post-type}.php A comment would represent an answer.
    3. Create a custom archive template to list these questions archive-{post-type}.php
    4. To add a new question I would use Gravity Forms and the Gravity Forms Custom Post Type plugin to add new questions

    Not sure if that would be too complicated for you but just a guideline. This is a simple to use plugin for creating custom post types http://wordpress.org/plugins/types/

    Cheers,
