Following its siblings, the new version of QAEngine – question answer website software now offers more options so that admins can handle their sites more effectively.

Pending answers

Similar to the “pending questions” feature, this function will help you prevent unsuitable content appear on your site. Once you enable this function, new answers have to wait for your approval before being displayed in the site.

Moreover, admins can also set up privilege for other users, if they achieve some specific points, they also have right to approve any answer.

Set up points for users

In the previous versions, admins just can set up points which users can achieve. But now, admins are given more power, you can manually modify user’s points right from the back – end. For example, if you find a user who’s contributed a lot to your site, you can set up a higher points for him, which can be considered as a small gift for his contribution.

Disable the “Live notifications”

Since being implemented, the ‘Live notifications” function’s been welcomed by our customers, however, there were some other ones who want to disable it. Since we’ve always tried our best to support diverse need of customers, here is the new option for you. You now can decide to use the “Live notifications” or not, in case you find it’s not useful anymore, you can then simply disable it.

Enhance mail system

From now on, users will know when the question is resolved. Whenever the best answer is chosen, there’ll be an email sent to the users to let them know.

Implement “Top users” widget

Another widget is implemented in this version. Using this widget, admins can create other ones based on different criterias: points, questions, answers. For example, you can make a widget for “Top 5 users who have highest points” or “Top 5 users who have the most questions”. This widget then can be considered as a way to encourage active users in your site.
