I am noticing a lot of people are commenting on a question rather than answering it.  I think the reason is the comment section is right below the question and a lot of people are missing the Answers editor.  Do you have any suggestions or can this be reviewed for a future update?  For example, one of my questions has 5 answers (all in the comment section) but on the Questions page it only shows up as 1 answer (this person put their answer in the right place)  If there is a way to move the comments to the Answers section, that would work too.  Thanks!

Hi Dumann,

I just turned off the comments for each question, but this has to be done manually. Would be nice if having them off was the default.

Dear Terri,
I understand the problem and the frustration webmasters can have with this. Its common sense which people seem to miss. After all common sense is abit less common.
If you turned the comments off altogether will it solve the problem for you?

Yes, I turned them off but this needs to be done manually for each question.

Hi guys,
At the moment, DW Question & Answer plugin does not yet support to disable the comment setting for questions or answers, but you can hide it by creating two files named dwqa-templates/comment-of-question.php and dwqa-template/comment-of-answer.php in your theme folder, then leave both of them empty, your comment will be hidden.
Regards

1. No, you cannot turn off the comment as DW Question & Answer plugin does not yet support to disable the comment
2. But, you can hide it. We provide a method to hide comment showing on your question/answer: by creating two files named dwqa-templates/comment-of-question.php and dwqa-template/comment-of-answer.php in your theme folder, then leave both of them empty, your comment will be hidden.
