How to mark a specific post as the Answer



  • Am new to nodebb, and i just install the latest version(v0.8.0). i want to covert it to question and answer forum, the challege is that i don't know how to mark a specific post as the answer to a particular topic......Any help?


  • Admin

    Have you tried using the question and answer plugin?



  • @julian i have try the question and answer plugin but i don't know how to mark a post as the right answer to the question being asked .......the only thing i archive using the plugin is that a topic can be a question

    I don't think you can. If a post gives you the right answer, you simply mark the whole topic as resolved.

    I think what you're after is like how Stack Overflow works?



  • @henrywright thanks guys i wish nodebb have that function........is there any way i can edit the text of the button "New Topic"



  • The ability to mark a specific answer as a question seems to be on @psychobunny's list of "To Do's" for this plugin.

    I think this would be a great addition as well!



  • thanks guys.....i have one more question to ask : my client want me to design a question and answer forum, he want me to design it in such a way that a price will tie to a question and any user that get the correct answer win the price. the challenge here is: i don't know how to tie a question to a price and how to mark a post as the right answer to the question being asked........any help will be highly appreciated

    If you were interested in subcontrating the work to the nodebb team I'd be happy to look into it. I wouldn't mind giving you a discount on our rate for things that are on my todo list as well, since I'll be building it eventually. Email us at sales@nodebb.com

    If not, I'd be happy to accept any pull requests to this repo and/or the cash plugin. Even if it isn't 100%, maybe if you start it I can help point you in the right direction
