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!

Did you mean provided by GoDaddy or just usable period.  I am using GD as my hosting provider and it works great.

# 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.

Please add option to answer selected questions only by experts of that category. This is very valuable and useful feature of question and answer web site. I found plugin for this (Expert Questions 1.0b) but observed that this plugin has no updates for long time. So inbuilt option for this feature will be very useful for the q2a users.

I just received a private message from a "lussybaby", which is clearly spam. I realize now that I would appreciate a function to block or report particular users (reporting could mean to decrease their points, or flag them for moderation) without having to turn of private messages.

Yes I had the same thing (a wall post actually). I'll be looking into it and seeing if there is some way to help prevent this.

At present posts of users auto approve if they score a set number of points, and if admin wants some trusted users posts to auto approve then we have to set him as an expert. But setting an expert gives him power to approve and edit others posts also.
So now can we have a new option to let some users posts to get auto approved but they get no other powers and all the rest users posts should come for moderation.

You can change what Experts can do in Admin>Permissions.

Thanks for your reply Scott. But I figured this out sometime back. And when I asked this, at that time I was pretty much new to q2a and didn't knew that the feature is already there.

Question2Answer is a nice platform to use for educational purposes. For this it will be very useful if you can add an option to conduct online examinations specially using MCQ type questions.

"All comments by user" on user page. Please, I have no idea why this is not implemented yet.

In case it hasn't been requested already, I'd like members to be able to flag a question as duplicate & link to that duplicate.  I know we have the "Close" functionality, but this is to allow non-authors/non-admins to mark potentially duplicate questions, as it's unlikely for someone who wrote a question to know a duplicate exists (otherwise, they probably wouldn't have written it).

Doing this won't close the question, but flags it for the author or an admin to close the question themselves if they agree it's a duplicate.
