I am wondering if one can have register or user name / email / website info as asked in Stackoverflow websites.

This will remove anonymous rab from questions and will give some charchter to questions than it just being som "anonymous" asking for it.

 

Or can we have plugin like that :)

Can't you just adjust Admin->Permissions settings ?
If you wish to have "Guest user" name instead "anonymous", play with Internationalization files.

Hi

It is not about registered user or calling some name instead of anonymous. Idea is that it shall allow humans to put their name on a question without going through trouble of registration. Idea is like in wordpress , visitors are asked to put their name / email id before posting a comment

anybody game for this? Happy to sponsor plugin development
by
It's a good idea. I don't know if it would be possible with a plugin though. Perhaps with the custom fields in 1.5 it will be.
by
is there anyway to get ppl to code the features we want. I think there shall be an area for paid plugin developments otherwise we are at just perpetually waiting?

Why not just learn how to code it yourself?

it is like telling a house owner to learn civil engg. If i wud have known I wud hve done :)

I see your point - if you can't even use proper English, what hope to learn PHP? ;)

well what to say

I'm sure Noah was only joking but he does have a point about coding. It's kind of expected that you know PHP if you are using a PHP app like Q2A, especially if you don't want the standard package. The same is true of Wordpress, Joomla etc when you need to customize them.
by
Hi I hope that he is just taking a pun.  Wordpress / Joomla has now built an eco system where one can get customised theme from developers as lot of business owners dont know a coding and at best can install it. the reason wordpress is more popular than drupal for simple reason that non developers can install and play unlike drupal where beyond a certain page you need skills.

My 2 cents thtas all. Nothing personal but am still looking for somebody to fix it :)
by
I apologize, I didn't mean to sound arrogant... I just wanted to try to encourage you into learning to help yourself.  PHP is pretty easy; I'm not a programmer, I just learned it because, like you, I needed something custom.  Good luck, anyway.
by
No issues. All was instant reaction. Given my time and day job - i dont think i will be able to do that. will hope that somebody will build it
by
@mbabug Q2A is exactly the same as Wordpress in that regard. If you want to do something custom in Wordpress you need to know PHP - it just happens that there are thousands of plugins and themes already made for Wordpress, given that it has 6 years development over Q2A, from many people.

Having said all that, it's good that you're coming up with new ideas for Q2A. Hopefully one day we'll have a solid community of plugins and themes to rival Wordpress!!
by
@DisgruntledGoat amen :)
by
:) yes I indeed hope that as well.
by
Isn't this already fixed in the recent version? I see the page for a new question already has a field to display a custom name for anonymous/unregistered users.
