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.

Can one more field me increased in registration form for password confirmation. Many a time it happens that users type wrong password and then they have to find the password changing place that is in their profile. But "Confirm Password" field is added in registration form then this kind of mistakes can be reduced to almost zero. And if possible then a password match confirmation at the same time instead of submitting the details and then giving a notice that the password doesn't match.
If you could add this then it would be very helpful.

I would like to have 2 things:

Q&A to respect the "Display name publicly as" setting from WordPress when using WP integration. Right now I do not want my username I log in with displayed for two reasons, I actually do not want people to know that nickname of mine and also I think its another security improvement if people do not know with what name I log in to my WordPress. As far as I know if themes or Plugins from WordPress do not use some special functions to display that username specifically then what is set under "Display name publicly as". Q2A on the other hand just not cares about this setting and displays the unsername I log in with, I do not like that at all.

Has the default Editor really no button for displaying code? I think this would be really needed since lot of sites are technical. I will switch to a markdown plugin anyway I guess. And I actually think Q2A should have markdown as default. I understand this is no SO Clone but having all this fancy color options and font + sizings only encourages kiddies and annoying people to make all their text big, bold and colored. I think making every answer look the same general way makes much more sense. I mean look at this site, who is actually using any of the formatting options besides lists? Almost nobody.

I'll check into the WP public name thing.
The CKeditor in v1.7 will be more customisable so you can remove the colour stuff if you like.

Thats great to hear. Thanks!

I'd love it if we could place a bounty on questions. I imagine anyone could place a bounty. The bounty would be paid using a fixed amount of the bounty asker's  points.

A bounty or reward would help motivate people with difficult questions.

Not exactly the same, but also involving a financial reward: http://fundd.de/
