I’m guessing from what you said that you want to log into Wordpress using your Q2A login? I don’t think that is possible, as far as I know you cannot log into Wordpress using any kind of external login.

From version 1.4, Question2Answer offers out-of-the-box integration with your WordPress 3+ site and user database. To install Question2Answer as part of your WordPress site, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Download the latest version of Question2Answer to your computer or web server (also available on GitHub).

  2. Unzip the download using a tool such as WinZip (or unzip in the Unix shell).

  3. Find qa-config-example.php and .htaccess-example in the unzipped question2answer folder, and rename them to qa-config.php and .htaccess, respectively.

  4. Open qa-config.php in a text editor and insert the following line next to another define(...) in the file:


    Replace **/PATH/TO/WORDPRESS** in the example with the full path to the WordPress directory on your server, i.e. the directory which contains wp-load.php. You do not need to set your MySQL database details in qa-config.php since these are imported from WordPress automatically. Q2A and WordPress will use separate tables within the same MySQL database.

  5. Place all the Question2Answer files in the appropriate location on your web server:
    • To serve Question2Answer in a subdirectory of a site (e.g. http://www.mysite.com/qa/), create the subdirectory inside the root directory for the site, then move or upload all the contents of the unzipped question2answer folder into this subdirectory.
    • To serve Question2Answer at the root of a domain (e.g. http://qa.mysite.com/), move or upload all the contents of the unzipped question2answer folder into the root directory for that domain on your web server.
  6. Ensure that WordPress authentication cookies and redirections are compatible with Question2Answer, as follows:
    • If Question2Answer is in a subdirectory of your WordPress site (e.g. http://www.mysite.com/qa/ under http://www.mysite.com/) then nothing needs to be done.
    • If Question2Answer is on the same domain but not in a subdirectory (e.g. http://www.mysite.com/qa/ and http://www.mysite.com/blog/), then add the following line at the start of the WordPress wp-config.php file: define('COOKIEPATH', '/');
    • If Question2Answer is on a different subdomain from your WordPress site (e.g. http://qa.mysite.com/ and http://blog.mysite.com/) then it’s a little more complicated:
      • Add the following lines at the start of the WordPress wp-config.php file, replacing **.mysite.com** with a period (.) followed by the partial domain name which is shared by both sites:

          define('COOKIEPATH', '/');
          define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', **'.mysite.com'**);
      • Add the following lines at the end of the WordPress wp-config.php file, replacing **qa.mysite.com** with the full domain name for your Q2A site:

          /* To allow redirection from WordPress login to Question2Answer */
          add_filter('allowed_redirect_hosts', 'qa_wordpress_redirect_hosts');
          function qa_wordpress_redirect_hosts($content) {
              $content[] = **'qa.mysite.com'**;
              return $content;
  7. Open the appropriate web page for Question2Answer in your web browser, for example:
    • If you installed Question2Answer in a subdirectory, http://www.mysite.com/qa/
    • If you installed Question2Answer at the root of a domain, http://qa.mysite.com/
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your database and Question2Answer functionality.

  9. You can now integrate the styling of Question2Answer with your WordPress site by creating a Question2Answer theme.
