Fantastic addon. Great to use for your help sections on your forum. You can see on forum overview if questions are unsolved or not, and you can mark the best answers. It is even free! 5/5 easily.
Awesome addon! A must-have for communities with help and question sections, this will help you keeping your forums clean and "enjoyable" to search through.
Yet to try it in a production environment, but the premise and working of it seems great so far! Hoping it won't prove a problem when "special" forum users see that 'Is Question' tickbox.
Easy install. Easy point and click features. No adding this or that in terms of having to add stupid css to a template. Worked like a charm first go. Thank you.
This is best addon provided for free. It will be par excellence when you finish task from you to do list.
This one of the best add on so far. I highly applaud the developer for coming up with such an excellent work.
