Welcome to the Question2Answer Q&A. There's also a demo if you just want to try it out.

Can we have some clearer notices for newbies posting questions here?

We seem to get a lot of questions asking something like "my site is broken, please help" with very little explanation. There are also a lot of questions where the answer is "read this page of documentation".

I think it would be useful to have a clearer notice when users are asking questions, saying a few things:

  • You must include your site's URL if possible so we can see where the problem occurs.
  • Please check if a question has been already been asked.
  • There is a demo (including admin access) if you just want to try Q2A.
  • There is lots of information in the documentation on how to implement single sign-on, plugins, etc.

This should be on the question form somewhere, not stuck off to the right in the sidebar (I don't think people read that).

Good idea, but I'd need to add the feature to Q2A first (though I guess it could be implemented as a plugin layer...)

I thought you would just do this with a custom theme? I guess if there is a place for a widget plugin that would also work.
