I will be setting aside some time in a few weeks to work on Q2A some more. The few changes I already made will be part of 1.7 (instead of 1.6.4) as there is a change in the mimimum PHP version requirement (now 5.1.6).

So as with previous threads, please post the top features you wish to see in Question2Answer!

I do have a few ideas already planned, so there is no need to suggest these, unless you have a particular comment on them:

  • Switch to mysqli (already done).
  • Speed up loading of questions with many answers/comments.
  • Upgrade to latest CKeditor (v4.3).
  • Make default theme responsive (I believe Jatin will be working on this).
  • More flexible custom HTML areas (e.g. something similar to my Widget Anywhere plugin).

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

# little contribution. I have been searching for the language php files that contain the language but couldn't find them.
# The script is hardest and badest writing to understand. I was wondering if I can use this script for other purpose other than question and answers. I wanted to use it  for classified Ads site. just to change the languages. Any help on this?
# Also recent topic is not a good ideal for someone who has opposite categories.
Example Like math category, english category,  physics category.
And someone who is only interested in math category the home will be mess. As he will be seeing threads on recent topic that does not warrant the attention and it might it might not be topic he really don't want to see.  There for while not including subscribe to categories that should be on recent topic.
I have seen a forum that has this on user profile to select and mark from with check box.
This subscribe category will be on recent topic.
# again a more mobile friendly and easy rich test editor area, as it is currently its not good.
Invite web crawling that scan user email address book and send friend request. Hey your friend is on xxx.com you might want to try it out. Just like linkedin.
# Statistics for total guest and user currently online and their current location. Total number of user visit for each day in a data base static view in form of calendar,  mention of user id. And there user will get notifications that his name has been mention.
# sticky. Sticky of topics
# announcement, admin global and category announcement
# 'New' in hyperlink at the end on each topic to take you down to the new post of the topic since you last visited the topic.
# Simple image attach.

Add option to admin panel to select WWW.site.com  or  Not-WWW.site.com. There is many users who ask about how to do that
by
This is something that should be handled at the server-level, not application- (Q2A) level. Can be done with htaccess easily.

User based permissions:

example non resiger: can post but go to moderation

register user: specific permissons like new user registered post go for moderation etc.

non  register user should fill name and email and it will auto register the user.

categories permissions: like only register user can post in this category.

post can be moderated from specified categories.

home page: categories excluded to show on home page(recent question and answers)
by
I suggest all questions could be divided into different catergories, such as art, entertainment, sports, life, music or science and so on. If so, I could find the answers what I want.

You are doing great job really!! Faboules, Awsome !!! Thank you all for your great work!

My suggestions:

  • An option to implant wordpress categoreis and pages toolbars inside the q2a template or core.
  • An option to link the logo of site to another site (base site, wordpress site)
  • More places to put the AdSense Ads, for example side-by-side to the logo.

Thank you

by
Logo: this is very easily changed in a theme.
Ads: I do plan to implement an easier module/widget system (in 1.8 not 1.7) so maybe this will be easier.

Ability to add a member in admin panel for admin
by
Can you add more detail? Do you mean allowing another user to access the admin panel? Because you can do that already, by setting them as "Administrator" (or "Moderator" for some actions like approval).

My suggestions:

  • Ability for admin write on closed wall
  • Ability for admin send private message to users with closed private messages
  • don`t send email to blocked users
  • allow blocked users use feedback form
  • Ability for admin edit post before approve ( maybe add button "Save and approve" )
  • Why session cookie is not httponly ?
     
    ( maybe as option in admin panel )

For the feature to "edit before approve" there is a plugin, you can use that. See in the link below.

Please add .htaccess protection to admin directory

That will give us extra security and second password to protect bulk action

Thanks
by
There is no "admin directory" in Q2A. All URLs are rewritten with htaccess to go through the index.php page.

If you have full server access it is possible to limit access to certain URLs via IP etc.

Ability to add php code in plugin and widget (right now we can add html)
by
I assume you mean putting PHP code in the boxes in admin? PHP code is best kept to plugins (that you write yourself) and not inputting code there. Mainly it's too big of a security risk.
