Could be a very good plugin if the creators had some support for bugs

Recaptcha don't work with the old version (active) VERSION OF THE PLUGIN

Problems in basic functionality
By ,

Doesn't work on Amazon Linux AMI release 2014.03 with php55-5.5.14-1.75.amzn1.x86_64.

Installation process went well, without any issues. The plugin seems to work fine when I'm logged in.

However for anonymous user it shows neither a list of questions (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mh1c9otfun5et3/Screenshot%202014-07-27%2013.31.38.png?dl=0) nor categories (https://www.dropbox.com/s/k96sw31tyiggbjs/Screenshot%202014-07-27%2013.32.01.png?dl=0)

Took my website down twice.

DWQA works well in isolation and I like its functionality, but it doesn't play nicely with other plugins which use ReCaptcha. Instead of warning of a conflict, it took my site down (front- and back-end) as soon as it was activated. After I informed Design Wall of this, they explained how to delete a couple of lines in their scripts to work around the conflict. "What hapens when I upgrade?" I asked. No reply so far but I found out when I upgraded DWQA today. My test site went down with a fatal error. Fortunately I run a duplicate site for testing, but I've removed DWQA from my live site as a precaution against other admins attempting to upgrade.
I don't think it's reasonable to expect customers to use Cpanel to bring their websites back up after installing a plugin, and other vendors manage to detect similar errors.

Nice Plugin but Neglected and Unsupported
By , for WP 4.0.1

It could be great. But no real support and no bug fixes. Seems abandoned.

They force you to use their website q&a for support, but that is FULL of spam. And no real help from there.

Pitty.
