Q & A Suggested Change

I use the Q&A plug-in on my site and think it is a nice
piece of software. I do however have one comment that I hope your
developers will be able to address for future versions: currently,
there is no ability for the site moderator to approve questions before
they are asked. This essentially invites spammers to ask a question,
register with the spam e-mail address and then post it to the forum.
Do you have anything in the works whereby a moderator must approve the
question before it goes live, similar to the way a moderator must
approve a comment on word press before it goes live? I think this is a
crucial detail that needs to be addressed in your software.

    Greetings oconn146,

    Thank you for the great suggestion and feedback, it is greatly appreciated and I do certainly agree with a Moderator Feature.

    there is no ability for the site moderator to approve questions before
    they are asked. This essentially invites spammers to ask a question,
    register with the spam e-mail address and then post it to the forum.

    Captcha should be instituted to keep spammers from registering in the first place irrelevant of whether or not a site is running Q&A or not.

    Do you have anything in the works whereby a moderator must approve the
    question before it goes live, similar to the way a moderator must
    approve a comment on word press before it goes live?

    Not that I am aware of but the developers certainly do not share everything with us.

    However, I will certainly move this to the Feature Suggestions section and alert the developer of the suggestion, this ticket, and your concerns :slight_smile:

    Cheers, Joe
