Question and Answer Forums
This add-on allows you setup forums based on Question & Answers with just a few clicks. Also, allow users to ask questions while other users are able to answer the question with multiple. Then, the question starter may then mark which answer fits best.

Question & Answer Forums allows you to turn your forum into a knowledge base, support portal, or just a questionnaire based community. Also, you can choose which forums are QA based or add a custom widget that allows your users to see which threads are unanswered.

Features Include:
  • When creating a thread in a Q&A forum the user will be given an option for their thread to use the Q&A format and default to sorting by up/down votes.
    • Optionally, a forum can be set to force all new threads to use the Q&A format.
  • Upvote/downvote posts
  • Threads get marked answered with a label when complete
  • Display order to display either by best vote (default) or chronologically
  • Enable an Unanswered Threads Widget to keep a watch out for those who need answers or see the Latest Answered Threads Widget too see who answered what.
  • QA Forums allows you to choose which icons you want, which colors you want, and so much more through style properties
  • Users will receive an alert if their post is marked as the best answer.
  • Several user criteria for use with user group promotions and other systems that support the user criteria system. Can be used to prevent users that usually receive a large number of down votes to be prevented from replying to Q&A threads, for example.

A very practical add-on : it allows you to indicate a forum for your questions in which members can answer and give evaluations. I recommend it, this is a very good thing to discern the right answers !

Does exactly what you want it to. Easy to install and setup. If you have a forum that people ask questions in, this is a must have. My forum is basically like stack overflow so this is awesome
