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=6c6f2c1af15f7037e83839304d3b863c



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=2dc8b5b3b56dd92d224874245e65ffa5



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-questions-only-forum-acp-png.171318%2F&hash=342e983c50ef98880813c009d2d1dc53



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=9ff883dc8e4be2c07727f28c0cb95789



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=0a1806c1854e3886e2229982b494c291



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=84db0d23e609510679d410208300d46d



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=5e7af17a49e7b0e642487761cd2502cb



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=dbbac010a1e362d5fc2a1ed4aedd7ad1



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-asnwers-counter-2-png.171310%2F&hash=1cce94753ebe67ec245605f75d6afda2



proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fxenforo.com%2Fcommunity%2Fattachments%2Fqt-best-asnwers-counter-3-png.171311%2F&hash=2f661c16cfe3a9de2b5a172af80ceefd



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=f0ad47eebc947d70287bce0f969a9d6f



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=cbf42d65f4497323edac3f024b7758b5



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=8c36f4792b81c0f90e2a92527dacdcc9



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:
