good but Impossible to change style without editing style.css
By , for WP 4.1.1

I like this plugin but I would like to be able to change the style color (button+++ and text) to adapt it to my theme color, directly in the settings menu. Think about that for the next update

Q&A

generally very nice plugin, but rarely updated and would do well to remove the login function Q&A for anonymous users

Great forum plugin!!!

This Q&A forum plugin is really great!!

I used it on my website, and I was surprised how good is its integration in a website: I use a child theme of an "apple" like thme that I bought over internet, and I only had to customize a bit the CSS to have a something well integrated and homogeneous.

However, there is just a big bug when installing it: if you had enabled the permalinks, then you'll have to disable and re-enable them to make the plugin work correctly. But it's nothing compared to the functionnality and good-lookingness it provides!!

Note: do not use cm-answers (concurrent plugin) : that plugin is a nightmare to integrate compared to DWQA!

Outstanding plugin!

By now I have tried most Q&A plugins out there including WPMU Dev's Q&A paid plugin and CM Answers plugin and I have to say this is the absolute best in terms of aesthetic, functionality and ease of use. My site already has 2 membership plugins working simultaneously so I LOVE the fact that with this plugin users can just immediately begin typing their questions and answers. It's simple, hassle free - I am so happy about that. And the fact that you can configure ALL the settings according to ALL user types on your site is phenomenal. Other plugins where buggin when it came to that part. Also, the page layout is minimal and awesome. The layout on the pages of the other plugins seemed out of touch with the basic user needs, it was like the design was somehow lacking common sense. I couldn't stand it honestly. With the DW Q&A plugin I just have a LARGE SEARCH BAR and the other basic elements I need - simplicity, full stop. It's the best. I'm serious, just when I was about to give up on my quest to find a great Q&A plugin for my site, I found DW Q&A plugin and I really am just so happy and grateful! It is exactly what I needed. THANK YOU!

Works pretty well for ADMIN USE only
By , for WP 4.0

I originally gave this a Four-Star rating, but had to go down to Three.

This plugin works very well ONLY IF YOU are the one adding the Questions, and the Answers to it.

Very nice compared to other Q&A plugins, but still has some hiccups that have not been resolved over the past months.

Support questions are asked by many users , but are not getting responded to.

Gave 3 stars for seven reasons...

1) It no longer asks visitors if the Answer was useful to them.

2) Support questions are asked, but are not responded to by the plugin's author.

3) The login button in order to post, answer or comment is buggy.

The login button sends you to the WP login even if you fill in your username and password

So I had to use some CSS to make the buttons disappear.

4) Even when the checkbox is enabled so that you can "Approve" the questions, answers or comments they STILL get posted without approval.

5) The Category likes seem to be having a permalink issue

6) Not certain why there is not a template or shortcode for the Single Question page. Instead it depends on a Default WP PHP template page.

Which in turn makes it difficult to choose a custom sidebar that we would want to use.

7) There is NO way to Approve, Delete or View the COMMENTS from within the Admin area.

=======================

As said before, this is a great plugin for "Admin" use ONLY, but not for interactivity with visitors.

The author started a potentially good thing , but for some reason has not tied , up the loose ends that have been mentioned in many of support questions that have been requested, or the bugs that have been found by many of the plugin's users.

Would love to give it FIVE stars if these interactive issues were addressed or resolved.

Thanks for this free plugin though.
