Question Answers is one good way to generate community based content and its more amazing when you can build a complete system with the content being automatically added. Check out Wp-Answers.com, which is a paid WordPress plugin converting your normal WordPress based blog into an excellent money-making engine.
- Points to Members : This service allows you to set up user members points and give them points whenever they post answers and help others while lose points when they post questions and ask help from others. This would increase the community feature and make people answer others questions.
- User Profiles : Each member would get their own User Profile page with details like the questions and answers they have posted. Avatars are powered with the Gravatar service if the user’s email is linked to some avatar or else a random generated one would be displayed.
- Content Development : This WordPress plugin would allow you to easily fetch content from the Yahoo Answers service from different sub-domains ie US, UK, Canada Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, India, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore sites etc. Apart from the automatically generating content the normal members can post questions and contribute answers as usual.
- Different Styles : The package comes with six different looks which can be customized based on the customizations and also comes with option pages like Top Users displaying the highest rated users based on points, Popular Page displaying the list of questions with highest answers and different looks and color styles.
Overall an excellent setup which can help you in building a special type of blog which is having content contributed by others. The cost of the Wp-Answers is 89$ which is worth the money if you have got the right audience and need a professional looking Q&A Community based site setup.
