  1. I’ve been meaning to ask before I purchase, what is the main difference between the DWQA pro and the free version?
  2. Will the pro version allow me to style the “Ask a Question” button and place it somewhere in the page, similar to this page?
  3. I very much like the theme/template of this Q&A page you have here, will the pro version allow me to have similar design?
  4. Will the pro version allow me to create a registration/login before a user can post question/answer?

Hello again Dominic!

So I bought the Pro version of DW, and I really want the “Ask a Question” button in the sidebar like you what you have here in this site. I did the code you gave me above, and it did put an “Ask a Question” button on the sidebar of my site, but it doesn’t have any style like that of the button here. I was thinking it would move the button below my site in the sidebar, with its style and all. Is there a way to do this? Thanks again for the reply!

You can use the following code in the style.css file:

.dwqa-sidebar-btn a {
background-color: #1cd25c;
border-color: #1cd25c;
border-radius: 3px;
border: none;
color: #fff;
cursor: pointer;
display: block;
font-size: 16px;
font-weight: 500;
line-height: 1.3333333;
padding: 14px 22px 13px;
text-align: center;
transition: all .2s;
-o-transition: all .2s;
-webkit-transition: all .2s;
vertical-align: middle;
white-space: nowrap;
width: 100%;

.dwqa-sidebar-btn a:hover {
color: #fff;
background-color: #16a548;
border-color: #159c44;
