Can I integrate Q&A plugin into Members2 Pro?

I am building a membership site with members2 pro, plan to use some of WPMUDEV plugins to build a site where members can have access to many of the great features these plugins offer.

Is Q&A plugin entirely independent "stand alone" or can it share its features with other plugins than buddypress?

Can members2 members post on Q&A plugin, logged into their Members2 account and get credited for it?

I cannot find any info on how I can combine Q&A into Members2 so members can benefit from the usage of the features offered in Q&A such as the reward system.

If not, how can the reward points been used in another way then just give more points to active posters?

Regards

    Hope all is well with you !

    I did some tests and looks like this integration is possible after all !

    Questions and Answers are standard WordPress custom post types, and Membership Pro has an addon that can restrict these to only members.

    See my screenshots to get a better idea

    OK, I didn't get the time until now to work on this, as I updated my xampp and php7 so this site is locally hosted, and it's not working as shown in these images,

    I've Custom Post Type Items, in image, it's Custom Post Type

    When I go to; Custom Post Type Items, I do not get the options as listed in the image, there is nothing listed. All other options have something listed.

    When I go to this page; http://yoursite.com/questions/ask/ I get this, a plugin I've installed but, I can view the only category I have created.

    # The Internet Archive (at http://web.archive.org/ ) should not cache this page.
    # Plugin by Kristian Risager Larsen, http://kezze.dk . Download the plugin at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/avoid-googles-cache/

    Disallow: /

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /localhost/site.com/wp-admin/
    Allow: /localhost/site.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

    Already got a few plugins errors (php7 related) after I installed the site from a backup, perhaps Q&A has issues with php7? This site runs with debug true, and not one Q&A issue reported so far.

      Hey Dennis,

      Taking over here while Jude is away. Looks like there was bit of confusion in the screenshot above.

      You will actually want to have the "Individual Custom Posts" add-on OFF, then you will get the "Custom Post Type" item that is in Jude's other screenshot.

      As for the /questions/ask page, very odd I'm getting that as well and I tested in PHP 5.6 and 7.0, same issue either way so doesn't appear to be 7.0 specific. I'm reporting this to our developer so we can get it fixed up asap. One of us will reply back once we have a solution :slight_smile:

      If you have any questions in the meantime, just let us know.

      Cheers,
      Tyler
