How to set-up no voting - just basic Q & A

Looking to set-up a basic Q & A page, where site visitors ask a question and I (the Admin) reply. Really don't want or need any voting, points, visitor answers or any other features. Obviously just a simple Q & A needed.

Installed the plug-in successfully and able to access the questions/ page and the questions/ask page.

Anyway, where do I make the edits to remove voting and other non-essential features?

Thanks

    Hi razormicro and welcome to WPMU DEV!

    In case you didn't already set it up, under Questions > Settings you could easily restrict the ability to answer questions to yourself as Admin. I believe that alone would take care of the Admin-only answers scenario.

    Regarding the voting/rep-point system, that's a bit of an extensive edit there. And I believe all you'd need for that is in qa/core/template-tags.php, namely with functions such as the_question_voting().

    I'll ask one of the developers to see if I've missed anything or if there's anything more to add, just to be sure.

    Cheers,
    David

    Hi razormicro,

    Just had it double checked, the edits you'd be looking for should all be contained within qa/core/template-tags.php as I mentioned. The included template file calls the functions within that file to display Q&A elements. So you could make any needed adjustments in there.

    If you have any questions on that, I'll be glad to see how I can help! :slight_smile:

    Cheers,
    David
