Language Files

The language files below are marked by the corresponding Question2Answer version. You can safely install a language file from a different version, and update it with the missing phrases. To install a language, place its directory (such as fr or ru) in Q2A's qa-lang directory, then open the General section of the Admin panel and choose the language from the menu provided.

If your language is not listed, or is out-of-date, you can create or update language files using a text editor.

Themes

To install a theme, place its directory in Q2A's qa-theme directory, then open the General section of the Admin panel and choose the theme from the menu provided. Many good themes can be found at Q2A service providers. Below is a list of other recently updated themes:

You can also create your own themes using CSS only, or (optionally) modify the HTML code.

Clients

There is now a Q2A client for Android, created by NoahY. It requires the XML-RPC plugin to be installed on the Q2A site you're using.

Plugins

To install a plugin (requires Q2A 1.3 or later), place its directory in Q2A's qa-plugin directory, then open the Plugins section of the Admin panel and check it is listed. The plugin may also offer some options on this page.

  • Question Closing by NoahY. Allows questions to be closed in Q2A 1.4.x.
  • XML Sitemap Generator by Simon Frerichs. Q2A 1.3 now includes a Sitemap generator so this may not be necessary.
