For eg., if i have a topic/question which i want to discuss only with a restricted group of people, is that possible. i understand that a private question will be visible to only the author and site admin.
Is there a way i can make any question/answer accessible to a group of users – so that the discussion can be carried on only among members of that group, and not visible to all other users.
I think if you want to do that kinda thing then it can only be done by setting roles for users of your sites with different privileges coz for now it would be 0 or 1 situation thats either the user browsing the site is admin or he/she is ordinary visiter ,we cant categorise visiters of our site as private question asker member unless they get registered on the site with a specific role,as far as i know the kinda thing you are requesting is not possible for now but its a great idea and may be possible in future versions of the dwqa plugin but i would recommend you to try and test different role specifier plugins taht are available in wordpress directory and see if you can find and build a customised solution for your own thanks
These are the best ones i could find but attaching this kinda broad roles functionality can only be done by designwall team (i think its in the hand of the question asker who he/she wants to be able to see the question so there should be some kinda tagging system along with the private question)
The other thing that can be done is by setting the different user roles during the registration process according to your requirements and the getting the user role using this plugin i listed below
The next thing would be matching the user role and then allowing the question to be viewed accordingly,i dont know what hook dwqa uses to check if the question is private or not may be they could see into it and help you achieve what you want.
