I’m looking to set up something similar to Quora and wondered whether Buddypress would be suited to this?
What I’m after are the social features of Buddypress (such as follow/connections), plus Q&A features so users can ask and answer questions and also vote on the best ones. So far I’ve found plugins that do the social side, or the Q&A side, but haven’t found one yet that does both…
Yes and No. I have two sites using the Q&A plugin from WPMU Dev. This plugin works great except buddypress integration is not present. If I recall correctly, the dev wrote interest in adding integration (sorry, I cannot find that link). The plugin is quite good.
Another approach is to use a Q&A theme and the BP template pack. I did this prior to switching to the plugin. In this case the integration was fine because the WP posts went to the activity stream.
Thanks for the info @lph2005. I’ve checked out the Q&A plugin from WPMU Dev and it looks great! It says on the site that it works perfectly with Buddypress, but I need to find out what that actually means? The main thing is that I need people to be able to follow each other like on Twitter rather than just receive email notifications of questions they’re following. I’ll dig a little deeper, but this all looks promising
