Question Threads 2.1.2

No permission to download
Description

This addon allows users to create questions, mark them solved/unsolved and select best answers.

Features

Question marks

Questions have a special mark before the title which signalize that it is a question and shows its state (solved/unsolved). There will be a best answer mark near question mark if question has best answer:

Question marks are fully customizable starting from three different types and ending with an ability to apply custom css. Take a look at some examples:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-question-mark-styles-png.171301%2F&hash=796989db4e362b9f186addcee3959b5d



Question mark is showing everywhere before question title: threads list, thread view, search results and so on:

Forum types

Likely you will need to prohibit creating questions in some forums. Forum types were created exactly for that purpose.

There are three different types of forum:
  • Threads only
  • Threads and questions
  • Questions only
Questions only forums have custom node icon both in public and in ACP:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-questions-only-forum-png.171317%2F&hash=07e2004e2fdf32f6d4e515aa61b60ec6



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-questions-only-forum-acp-png.171318%2F&hash=e3502b34c5376085f5401133f1c2c4d4



Moreover in questions only forums some phrases and icons are changed to give users an understanding of current forum type:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-questions-phrases-png.171319%2F&hash=484f6a5ae7039261b48f3df9c5b29de4



Best answers

Some questions are getting solved through a big disscussion of many users.

But sometimes a user can give one, straight and very helpful correct answer. In such cases question author can mark such answer as "best answer":

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2F%25D0%2593%25D0%25B8%25D1%2584%25D0%25BA%25D0%25B0-gif.171306%2F&hash=32b2ff6f7a83e0e9e30957e5aa7480c1



Of course you can customize the look of best answer:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-answer-style-1-png.171307%2F&hash=2fdc2868ed5589d45723edabb2694c1e



If you don't want to change the background color, you can use best answer indicator instead:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-answer-style-2-png.171308%2F&hash=23cbe6b3cbe751e136a619dac3e35681



Every user has a best answers counter (same with likes). By default the counter is showing in three places: profile page, user account menu and user info block in posts:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-asnwers-counter-1-png.171309%2F&hash=1d850e5bcdf4d776c08a5010d017af5c



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-asnwers-counter-2-png.171310%2F&hash=ac86b75862dd3f9129495a1ca7309900



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-asnwers-counter-3-png.171311%2F&hash=c8523e8295e5b3877b2e3ec34ebcc6de



Clicking on best answers counter will open a list of user's best answers:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-answers-list-png.171312%2F&hash=08c17ba6e0bf52ba2dc7f7ae371256cf



Alerts and emails

All question watchers will receive alerts about solving question or selecting best answer:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-alerts-png.171313%2F&hash=4436ea5f34b49f13c63a58e623c6604d



Note the question/best answer mark before alert text. It will help to understand what happend without even reading the alert text!

Those question watchers who subscribed for email notifications will receive an emails:

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-email-png.171314%2F&hash=5924470a06dcb68b1f7fcd09c63c4f44



Most best answers

Best answers counters are creating a competitive atmosphere — users will try to post more best answers. If so, there must be a place where they can see their rank:
