I have been testing several question and answer scripts and forum be it Xenforo, Flarum, Discourse, DWQA, Question2Answer. What caught my attention is different layouts. As I have a working knowledge of Question2Answer I have a question for you.

How is WpForo different than Question2Answer in terms of core functions?

I am truly serious in creating a community for my website.

Just to add more description

Aren't we able to check for previously asked same question (while typing question) so that the user need not ask the same question again and again.

Hi @writetoyogen,

wpForo Q&A layout is under active development.

In near future we're going to add these important features:

  • Question sorting by date, answers, votes, etc...
  • Answers automatic sorting by number of votes and "is answer" mark.
  • Automatic search during question (topic title) typing, to avoid question duplication.
  • UI/UX changing in Answer and Comment posting to avoid posting Answers instead of comments
  • Admin tool to change an answer to the comment and vice versa

 

In general wpForo has many unique features and features. You should install and go through all settings to see them, it's hard to list them all here.

At the moment wpForo Q&A layout works like standard forum, only the layout and answer voting system is different from the standard forums. Also it has built in user ranking system based on answers and comments.

Oh! Thank you very much for a quick reply. Good to learn this.

Are you going to give all those features in the WpForo core or an external (paid) addon?

We're going to add those in wpForo plugin core.
