I want to add auto-suggest capability with the ‘Question-tags’ field on the “Ask-a-question” page. 
I know you guys maintain a Question Tags database and this functionality is possible. Can you help me with this?

You can open the question-submit-form.php file and find the line 58 to 60 then replace it with the following code: 

<label for="question-tag"><?php _e( 'Tag', 'dwqa' ) ?></label>
      <?php
          $exclude_tags = get_term_by( 'name', 'FAQ', 'dwqa-question_tag' );
          $exclude_tags_id = array();
          if( ! empty($exclude_tags) ) {
              $exclude_tags_id[] = $exclude_tags->term_id;
          }

          wp_dropdown_categories( array(
              'name'          => 'question-tag',
              'id'            => 'question-tag',
              'taxonomy'      => 'dwqa-question_tag',
              'hide_empty'    => 0,
       'selected'      => isset( $_POST['question-tag'] ) ? esc_attr( $_POST['question-tag'] ) : false, 
               'quicktags'     => array( 'buttons' => 'strong,em,link,block,del,ins,img,ul,ol,li,code,spell,close' ),                 'class'         => 'input-block-level',
               'exclude'       => $exclude_tags_id
           ) );
     ?>

Instead of having a drop-down field (wp_dropdown_categories) can we just a simple textbox?

Thanks, Dominic! 
This is great. We are looking to improve this as well. 
Please see the image below for end-functionality we are trying to achieve.

<p><p>I have checked your screenshot and see that this is a good idea.  But the plugin does not support to custom the tag box as you wish. You can use the Select2 js plugin. URL: https://select2.org/</p>

Hi Dominic,

I’ve added the Dynamic Option Creation (Select2.js) plugin for this functionality. There are a couple of problems that I’m facing while integrating Select2.js with DWQA –

1. I can’t post multiple options with a question.
2. The new option added isn’t saved for future use in the DWQA Tags table.

Can you please help me with this functionality. We’d like to get some custom work done and collaborate with you guys.
