I wanna post questions ( random questions) programatically. just like how anonymous users do and the admin had to approve it. So it is important that the posted question does not appear to users untill admin approves it

How can i do that? What script files i have to touch ?

thanks a lot

Thanks to this well documented script. I found the answer from http://question2answer.org/external.php


require_once 'qa-include/qa-base.php';

require_once QA_INCLUDE_DIR . 'qa-app-users.php';
require_once QA_INCLUDE_DIR . 'qa-app-posts.php';

$type = 'Q_QUEUED'; // question
$parentid = null; // does not follow another answer
$title = 'Why do birds sing?';
$content = '<html>2222222 <b>And</b> why do ....<br/>next line</html>?';
$format = 'html'; // plain text
$categoryid = null; // assume no category
$tags = array (
$userid = null; // qa_get_logged_in_userid()+1;
$notify = null;
$email = "anything@anything.www";
$name = 'John';
// function qa_post_create($type, $parentid, $title, $content, $format='', $categoryid=null, $tags=null, $userid=null, $notify=null, $email=null, $extravalue=null, $name=null)
$questionId = qa_post_create ( $type, $parentid, $title, $content, $format, $categoryid, $tags, $userid, null, null, null, $name );
