Q&A Plugin - User Profiles and Subscriptions

I'm very confused about this functionality.

When it says "dedicated user profiles", what is that referring to? Is it just the "Q&A" settings at the bottom of the normal wordpress profile?

Also, are the subscriptions all or nothing? In other words, either you subscribe to all new questions or none at all? Is there a way to subscribe to just one category, just questions you asked, etc?

Thank you.

    Hi danny.fein and welcome to WPMU DEV!

    I'll be happy to clarify those things for ya! The profile section is actually an integrated part of Q&A where you click on a user's name and you get to their Q&A profile, detailing the user's activity in the Q&A section.

    You can access it by username with the following url:

    The subscriptions are on a per question basis, so you should only receive updates regarding the questions you subscribe to and/or create.

    Hope that helps, let us know if you have further questions on this! :slight_smile:

    Hiya Danny,

    You should be able to subscribe to any category of questions (or individually per-question). The Q&A plugin uses custom post types. Custom post type categories are supported feeds for WordPress. Let us know if you have any difficulty with this.
