DW Question & Answer is our free WordPress plugin to build up a powerful and engaging question & answer site. Since the release in November, we have received lots of good feedback as well as great idea suggestions for the plugin – 5 stars rated plugin on

It’s not only yours wish to have a better and feature-rich plugin, but that’s also our ambition. After weeks of research and development, we are delight to announce the release of DW Question & Answer version 1.0.3 with WordPress 3.8, features added, improvements in back-end and major bug fixes.

1. Simplified plugin configuration

As in the older versions of the plugin, after the installation you would need to create pages for Question list & Ask question and do setup in order for the plugin to work and display properly.

This step somehow has caused confusion and guess what, in this new version, that job has been taken care of. Single pages for Question list and Ask questions are automatically created once you install the plugin, of course all the settings are ready as well. One-step-installation and you are good to go.

2. Whole-new Permission Settings Function

Permission settings for specific roles is one the most anticipated features for DW Question & Answer plugin, and yeah we have made it to this version. Permission settings is added in back-end of the plugin, where you can control who and how they can act on your Question & Answer page. We have separate settings for Question, Answer and Comment,

The Edit and Delete permission here is that one can edit and delete all other questions/ answers and as well as comments. What about one’s own post? By default of WordPress, one can already edit and delete their own posts, so we think that it’s not necessary to have this setting again in the plugin.

You will realize that we have settings for Anonymous role. However, in this version we only support limited permission for this role:

  • Post answer: yes, anonymous user can post answers or comments to a question
  • Post question: No, they cannot yet. We do not support having anonymous questions in this version.

3. WordPress 3.8 Compatible

Right when we know that WordPress 3.8 is released, we immediately work on it and make sure that our DW Question & Answer plugin works smoothly on WordPress 3.8.

Technically, when compare to WordPress 3.7, there is not much difference in functions. The back-end, however, got a face-lift, which we think clean and beautiful.

4. Auto-follow function

We have received quite a number of questions asking about a “question follow/watch” function, in which anyone can follow or watch their desired questions and get notification whenever a new answer or comment is posted. In this version, we have made a tweak: when someone post an answer or a comment to a question, they will be automatically set as following that question and will receive all the notification like a question submitter.

This is a small step ahead in preparing for the real Question Follow function that will be released in the upcoming version.

Sure Imran, ee will look into this issue.
Is it happening on your own site? If possible, can you create a private question with site credentials for us to have a better look at the issue?

Hi guys!

Very happy for the updating plug-in, but I have a question.

I do not understand why Git repository version 1.0.3 although in WordPress repository is available for download is version 1.0.4. ???

This confuse the users…

i have installed the plugin into a math education website in Turkish . i want to use the plugin in turkish , edited the default.po file with poedit , created .mo file also , uploaded them .. and edited the wp-config.php to “tr_Tr” , but i dont see the turkish version . my wordpress version is 3.8 and plugin is updated to 1.04 , Help is appreciated.

Hi Gazi,

Regarding the translation issue you have, here is my suggestion:
1. Change your .mo file name into
2. Upload the file to /wp-content/languages/
3. Go to wp-config.php file and define your language : “tr” not “tr_TR”
