Hello I want to have a section on my forum where users can request features and others can vote for them. So only vote and comment. Is there a way to hide answers? I saw some old posts back in 2019 saying that this functionality would be coming in a later release. Was the ability to hide answers ever added? Anyone else out there doing this (a feature request section of their forum) that I could look at for inspiration? Also would be great if there was a way to mark status like in review, planned, in progress, completed and see from top level without having drill in to see a comment. Let me know if you can disable answers and if anyone is using the Q&A layout for this type of feature request forum? Thanks

By hiding the posts (can be done via css) how will anybody be able to vote? Sounds like you need wpForo Polls rather.

@verek I don't think polls will work. I want the user to be able to post a feature request. For example I am looking for xyz feature. Then other folks can up/down vote it and comment on it.

Depending on how you setup your Q&A forum you could try hiding the "answers" buttons with CSS. Note, this would apply to all Q&A forums and topics, so if you intend for some topics to have answers then this would kill that ability. But, if it's only about the feature request forum thing it should be okay.

In Dashboard>Forums>Settings>Styles>Custom CSS add the below code. 

/* Remove Q&A Replies Leaving Only Commenting and Voting */
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpfl-3 .wpforo-post .wpf-right .wpf-answer-button, #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpfl-3 .wpforo-post .wpf-right .wpf-add-comment-button {display: none;}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpfl-3 .wpf-bottom-bar .wpf-answer-button {display: none;}

On my particular dev board this had the intended effect, only voting and commenting available. Nevertheless, you will have to check carefully to see if you have broken anything.
