FAQ: Differences between the Free and Pro version of DW Question & Answer

The pro version of DW Question & Answer has been improved a lot since we have collected suggestions from our beloved users and added them into DW Q&A.

You can see and demo here:

If the demos aren’t enough, read these lines to take a closer inspection at the differences between the free and the pro version of DW Question & Answer:

  • Different styles: As you can see in the demos, both versions of DW Question & Answer have unique and different styles.
  • Extra extensions: The DW Q&A Pro is integrated with 4 premium extensions: DW Q&A Widgets, DW Q&A Leaderboard, DW Q&A Markdown, and DW Q&A Captcha. Each extension costs $29 and if you purchase the pro version, you’ll save at least $92 for yourself because we are constantly updating the DW Question & Answer with many more cool premium extensions.
    • Widgets: The free version supports 4 custom widgets while the pro version supports 7.
    • Leaderboard: The Pro version can list who makes great contributions as well as provides friendly competitions for your community .
    • Markdown:
      • The markdown feature in the Pro version of DW Q&A Pro helps you to edit the plain text without using HTML formatting tags, now you can read and edit drafts with ease.
      • Reviewable before submitting.
      • Spell checking.
    • Anti-spam by reCaptcha / FunCaptcha: DW Q&A Pro is integrated with reCaptcha / FunCaptcha so you don’t have to worry about obnoxious spam.

ebrahimdurosimi says: • 

Awesome. Totally awesome. Have search far and wide for something like this. Glad to have found this. Thanks.

NicoPagel says: • 

Awesomeness in plugin. Keep on developing! Would give 5 Stars but your submit-bar is not moveable for me.

kannangce says: • 

I was searching for an opensource app to have a Q&A platform. With this we were able to do with our existing wordpress. Super…:)

kezko says: • 

Amazing plugin ! Thank you so much !

csfalcao says: • 

Very good plugin, maybe the best of its kind. Should be a premium plugin, free is just awesome! A lot of features and a very clean and beautiful design.
It´s almost perfect: I can’t edit post (its listed but it doesn’t works) and theme compatibility needs some CSS knowledge.

mklcst says: • 

I think you should realize a premium plugin with social integration.
For instance:
– when a user posts a question automatically add it in his/her wall and in the website facebook page.
– answer to the question with social replies (as social comments).

saeedalipoor says: • 

It really helps me, thanks a lot for a this hot plugin 🙂

dozryan says: • 

Plugin is great but I think right now there are two problems.

1) No auto spam blocking
– Need to implement spam blocking on Ask Question page.

2) Admins need ability to disable Private questions by default.
-Private questions are good for certain types of websites but not all. Adding the an ability that lets the admins disable this would be great.

Other than these two issues, this plugin is great.

Love the plug in, but wondering do you have any plans to have some customisation to it. I love the look, but my client wants his site to have a black background and it doesn’t look as nice on this.
Although I can’t use it this time, I will definitely use it in the future.

nader says: • 

I have a couple of points:
* Disabling Status and Public/Private by default would be excellent!
* I currently don’t see a way to order answers by votes per default!?

drknp says: • 

Great plugin , i was searching this type of plugin for a long time. Thank your design wall for providing such a fantastic plugin for free.

Cobo says: • 

After having used several Q&A plugin, here’s my short opinion on this very promising plugin. I think most of them are due to it being a very recent plugin:

– For me, the single most important thing this plugin should implement is a rewards system. I see you can now vote up or down, but it doesn’t seem to have a reputation system where the user is awarded points for an voted up answer or if his answer is selected as the best one.
If this could be implemented through http://mycred.me/ it would be awesome, as more and more sites are starting to use to integrate all the rewards with just one system across site. Its developer seems very open to collaborate, so please, this would be awesome.
– Add an option to allow an anonymous (non-registered) user to post/answer with a reCAPTCHA system?
– Add a share question button to Facebook, Twitter, Google+.

– Does DQ Q&A support subcategories?
– Does it use custom post types?

– Great default theme
– Very clean, easy and fast
– Following and notification system
– Instant search when adding a question

Hope you continue developing this plugin to make it even more awesome and beat the not so great ones out there!

DebC says: • 

Easy to set up and use, clean and easy for readers. But I am having some problems. #1 I want to eliminate the private option. It defeats the purpose of having a public question and answer resource on the site. So far everyone is clicking PRIVATE and its pissing me off! #2 I am not seeing where they click a button to answer the question. The page is http://blacksgoingvegan.com/dwqa-questions/

hosseinbrusli says: • 

When installing the plugin I get the error :

Fatal error: Call to a member function add_cap() on a non-object in /home/guarddco/public_html/wp-content/plugins/dw-question-answer/inc/roles.php on line 192

and at line 192 roles.php :

foreach ($this->defaults as $role => $role_val ) {

What is the solution for installing plugin ?

thangbh says: • 

Awesome plugin for basics needs. Haven’t had a chance to dig deeper, but I’m sure it’s worth to install on your website!


guruji says: • 

Great Plugin! Must have! Love it!

Awesome plugin with a great design. The developer is committed to improve on this in the short to long term which is fantastic. I definitely recommend it to all webmasters and bloggers who want a simple solution for their website’s Q&A needs.

aussiemike says: • 

Great plugin and I highly recommend it even for a beginner like myself 🙂

patlegat says: • 

great plug in. it would be better if we could register with a social network like tweeter or facebook

suifengtec says: • 

This is a perfect WordPress Q&A plugin,also is the best one. If it has more APIs,it will be better!

dradil says: • 

Great plugin, but i would like to see few more options.;
1. the top most is custom login and register page, right now, the plugin redirects to wordpress login and register page, and also custom user profile page, if they also design the login and sign up pages, then there will be no match for this plugin, also they should give us options to disable voting and rating system. But thank you so much for this great plugin.
