Did you try copying the code that is on the top of the Q2A page? Here it is:

<form method="POST" action="./ask">
  <table class="qa-form-tall-table" style="width:100%">
    <tbody><tr style="vertical-align:middle;">
      <td class="qa-form-tall-label" style="padding:8px; text-align:right;" width="1">
      <td class="qa-form-tall-data" style="padding:8px;" width="*">
      <input name="title" type="text" class="qa-form-tall-text" style="width:95%;">
  <input type="hidden" name="doask1" value="1">

You would need to put that in one of your theme functions. You can check the current page using the variable $this->request.

It's possible that you put the form inside the main page for already on the page, so make sure that the two forms are completely separate.

In version 1.4, you can simply add the widget and put it in the page. Try the available options and see what fits your needs. :)

Is there a way of adding the askbox into qa-theme.php by using something like $this->askbox(); .... ?
