Hi All!
Thanks Hung for updating us and keeping us involved in the development of this plugin/community.
I guess the wish list can go as far as you take it. But for most users, there are some core features which will be essential for them to opt for this plugin. (although most of us use it even now, and are quite happy with it)
Core Functions:

  • Points and rewards system (which is coming as per your note!) – I guess most of us if not all agree that you are in the right direction with mycred.me and avatars and badges will add further luster
  • Easy theme integration
  • Ability to edit answers
  • Easy image uploads from the default frontend tinymce editor
  • Ability to setup email addresses/notification addresses other than admin
  • Ability to set pages for questions, answers and submit questions and slugs, and without the plugin creating them automatically (not all users are at the same level of technical know how, and most users will setup a plugin after installation anyways)

Wishlist:

  • If the rating buttons can be fixed in mobile views as they don’t show properly (tested on several devices on smaller screens iphone 4, 5 and Samsung)
  • Badges are also used in a nice way in UserPro plugin: http://userproplugin.com/userpro/public-activity
  • Social Share buttons (already in the pipeline)
  • Top 5 authors/contributors to have the ability to display a link to their site/external link (just a suggestion, might not be for every one)
  • Question/answer Embedding (already in the pipeline)
  • More widgets with ability to select 
      a. latest answers
      b. latest questions
    1. c. specific category answers/questions
      d. specific tag answers/questions
      e. answers by specific user/user-role

 There are many others, but lets stick to smaller gains, and we can all help!
I might add more later, but gotta go now, sorry

Thanks for the awesome list, Well Wisher. One bite at a time, we ll try to deliver 1,2 small improvement every 1,2 week. There are a few items need more discussion, especially the notification scheme. I did mention about the “following” feature for question and people in a recent comment.

Ps: I don’t really understand the last item in your Core features list

Guru
replied 6 years ago

Dear Hung, Thanks for the feedback on my list.

I was referring to giving users the ability to create pages for the plugin, rather than automatically creating dwqa-questions and dwqa-ask-question pages. What I would like to have is exactly as buddypress does, it lets users create the pages when they first configure the settings for the plugin. Have a look at the pages section of the buddypress settings page for an idea.

That’s a really good feature I also want to have on my site 🙂

answered 6 years ago

Ok the feature i would like to see is not the feature actually but it would be great if the sidebar widgets for eg. related questions are shown only in the question answer pages and no where else in the site.
Plus it would be great if you could add an option for administrators to choose which email id they would like to send their mail notifications from like i asked over here
http://cmspioneer.com/designwall/question/email-used-in-dw-question-answer-plugin-notifications/ and last but not the least let admins create and publish pages with slug of their own choice on the first hand basis without automatically publishing those two pages which gets published on activation of the plugin thanks 
your plugin is just awesome!!!

mark “me too” feature or “duplicate” like in google groups or stack over flow may save a lot of space in database and can prove as an added advantage to users admin and the whole community by saving time in answering the same questions all over again.
I am loving that embed feature and sharing options you guys are testing over there btw 🙂

let show of your site top rank holders by adding avatar along side their rank in leaderboard as well, just like in experts page i am sorry i keep adding answers without answering at once but ideas keep coming while i browse your site and i just dont wanna forget them so i post them here before i do forget them 🙂

Hung Dinh Staff
replied 6 years ago

Yes. You already see the $tone (points, credits) we just rolled out here

well wisher
replied 6 years ago

Hello Hung thanks for the considerations,yaa i saw that $tone and its nice,actually i tested mycred and cube points on my local machine as well and the thing is mycred is totally awesome with more features and flexibility it completely outperform any other plugin out there !!!
And that avatar thing i was talking bout is showing the avatar in the leader board widget by the side of username
Like [Rank=>1][avatar][Username][$tones]
[Rank=>2][avatar][Username][$tones]
It will kinda encourage community members to participate more as there avatar is getting featured on questions page kinda working as reputation 🙂 users dont have to check experts page specially to check out the experts faces !!!

Hung Dinh Staff
replied 6 years ago

I do agree that badge next to username is a very good way to honor the contribution and ranking of members. I did look at the way ThemeForest is implimenting badges for their author. I will ask Jackie trying badges in DW community next week so that we all have an overview so you can provide feedback.

Nice to hear that MyCred.me integration is on the way. :-))
 
1. As I said in another topic I would like to have more shortcodes. For example to display all questions with a specific category or tag.

[ dwqa-list-questions category='General Question']
[ dwqa-list-questions tag='DW Question Answer']

2. It would be also nice to have a category or tag widget like on this site. It should display all question categories and tags.

Best regards,

Pascal

i also think that  we should be extra careful while playing with embedding iframes as it could pose a security issue to sites at the same time what you say ?

Hung Dinh Staff
replied 6 years ago

I do agree Well Wisher. We will make sure that the source codes of the question is clean and secured.
I am more concerned about the performance issue. Imagine you embed your question into a million impression web page. We need to work on the cache improvement of the question

well wisher
replied 6 years ago

yaa i understand your point @Hung it could then act as an DDos type of thing resulting in a traffic that the site would not be able to handled.

Josiah Wallingford
answered 6 years ago

BadgeOS integration would be nice as well while you are integrating MyCred. It would be cool to list answering a question as a task in a quest to earn a badge.

I really like the way Apple organizes their QA communities. The answer being very clearly highlighted, and it being easy for readers to understand which answer was the right one. You guys are doing this, but I love Apples styling.

yet another plugin and feature brought to notice here

A suggestion (new feature): revisions for a question!

Mike
answered 6 years ago

DWQA is a great plugin and I appreciate the functions but over the past month I have had some frustrations and would like to make the following suggestions.
BUDDYPRESS
I would like to see further integration with BuddyPress, particularly linking the author and answerer of questions to the buddypress profiles rather than WP author pages which show a 404 when users are not author level.
REGISTER AND LOGIN
It would also be beneficial to allow controlling of the ‘Register’ link at the bottom of the single question page so it can be directed to a particular page or registration form rather than the usual WP registration form.
The text also states ‘Please login or Register to Submit Answer’ even when there are limited permissions to submit an answer. This is confusing when someone signs in and finds that they do not have permission to answer a question.
Categories & Subcategories
At the moment on the ask question page subcategories are not indicates as such in the dropdown box, they are all shown as one list, parents and subcats. It would be good to see these broken down to indicate which are which

Parent Category
– Subcategory
-Subcategory …etc

Even better would be to see two boxes at the top of the page as seen here on this site. Where the Products box is could be subcategory box so when a category is selected the subcategories become available.
Currently on the questions answered page a parent category is selected and all of the subcategories appear in one line in the box with no differentiation between parent and all subcats shown. Again it would be ideal to have two boxes, parent box and subcat box, at the top of the page.
You can see all of this at http://worldofchildhealth.org/questions-answered/
Thank you for the opportunity to add my suggestions and thoughts.

Hi,
I am using mycred points on my website with your plugin. I am building an ability where users are encouraged to give best answers because other users will transfer points. it works fine when I sell content. the mycred button shows up nicely and the other users are able to pay if they want to see the answer to a question.

the problem I am facing is that when the author of the answer edits his own answer, he can see the shortcode from mycred and he has the ability to change the amount that other users pay him when they click on mycred button. It is a significant problem, because i don’t want the users to see the mycred shortcode.

Example: When I edit the answer to add a short code like this
" [mycred_transfer amount:"100" from: "User who likes the answer" to:"Author of the answer"]"

other users see : and a button for transferring the points

when the author edits his own answer, he sees
" [mycred_transfer amount:"100" from: "User who likes the answer" to:"Author of the answer"]"

now he can change the amount from 100 to 1000 and it gives me a credibility issue, because the user might think I charged him 1000 points, where as it was the author of the answer who changed the shortcode.

is there a way, where the author is not able to see the shortcode when he edits his own answer?

Regards
Rohit
