What Our Customer Says

Questions Listing Page
DW Question & Answer Pro provides you with a short-code, helping you display all questions on one page at your choice. Besides, the question listing page also integrates with many features such as Filter, Sort, Pagination, Search, etc.
Ask Question Form
You can set ask question form on a sidebar or a separate page. With this feature, users can set the title question, provide detailed descriptions with HTML or Markdown, assign it to a category and tag it to help increase site exposure.
Manage Questions on Front-End
All features (such as edit, delete, sticky, follow, change question status) can be handled from front-end. This makes it easier for users to decentralize members rights on your website, allowing you to manage the community in an easy and convenient way.
Answer / Comment feature
Comment and answer feature are definitely indispensable in DW Question & Answer Pro. Answer form is supported in HTML or Markdown format. Your user can submit entry in private mode to provide confidential credentials such as website admin, FTP account in case you are using the Q&A as a helpdesk system.
This is also a key feature in a Question & Answer system which can be considered as the biggest difference between the Q & A system and traditional Forum. This feature helps people vote for other people’s questions that they’re interested in.
No need to instal any extra plugin, DW Question & Answer automatically counts views each time someone views the question. This feature of DW Question & Answers Pro helps you filter questions by the popularity on your website.
