    I’ve tried the WPMU Q&A (both free and paid) but I’m not particularly happy with it–it’s not quite mature enough for my taste (the paid version does support email notification though I have found it buggy). I’m seriously looking at Degree3’s Q&A WordPress plugin. It’s on my test box right now and it seems to be more flexible and reliable.

      Hi Mantic59, how did you like Degree3′s Q&A, I am also going to try some of these, so would like to ask you if you have something new and could review it. Thanks

        Julio, I put Degree3’s Q&A on my site, but it doesn’t get used a lot. Perhaps because of the floating tab for questions, I don’t know. In any case it’s used nearly as much as my previous Q&A solution, so I’m still looking for something that will work for me.

          The modal layout (pop-out) and Facebook social login is limiting your question volume. Try using an on-page layout on a select number of pages to compare.

    Hi Jean, I’m John Co-Founder and CEO in Pubble. I noticed a couple of visitors coming through from wpmayor in our getclicky dashboard so I thought that I would check out your post. Great review of some really nice Q&A options. If you are planning on doing a follow up post, I would love to contribute. The Q&A apps that you have covered above take a different approach to what we focus on in Pubble. For us, its all about Q&A in context (i.e. the Q&A threads live on the pages that they relate to). The aggregated “FAQ” page (i.e. the style of page that you’ve included above) is actually built from the widgets deployed across the site.

      John– Pubble looks an awful lot like Degree3. How do you distinquish yourselves from them?

    Hi @mantic59, thanks for your question and interest in Pubble (http://www.pubble.co) . I am not terribly familiar with those guys. We never come across them – we bump into UserVoice / Get Satisfaction but they are not really focused on Q&A. Just had a quick look at the Degree3 implementation on your blog. Obvious differences that I see:

    * Pubble supports page level Q&A threads. It looks like the same Q&A thread loads into every page on your blog? This may be a setting.

    * With Pubble, you get page level moderation (i.e. you can assign moderators at community / app / page level).

    * Pubble includes advanced reporting features (pages getting the most questions, moderators replying the fastest, etc.).

    * Pubble offers plugins for WordPress (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pubble-social-qa/) / Tumblr / Drupal (available in Pubble admin). They may also – not sure.

    * Pubble supports question submission via voice (Chrome only)

    * Pubble includes apps for Facebook that extend your Q&A community to your Facebook pages. See:

    Study USA: https://www.facebook.com/studyintheusa
    INTO Higher: https://www.facebook.com/intohigher

    * Pubble supports authentication via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pubble and question submission via email. We also support private question submission. Some live web site examples on:

    Study USA: http://studyusa.com/en/advisors/
    INTO Higher: http://www.intohigher.com/uk/en-gb/our-centres/into-newcastle-university/studying/our-courses/course-list/pre-sessional-english.aspx

    Hope this helps. Best, John

    Fantastic post. Any opinions on which is most mobile/tablet friendly? I am looking for a fast, functional QnA script at my site ne1up.com and need to implement something smooth enough to display nicely/effectively on various devices.

    Also need 100% of the source code which some scripts don’t give… Hadn’t thought about using WordPress, interesting option worth a little more thought…

    Thanks!

    Do you know of any Q&A plugins that do NOT require the user to login or register to post or answer a question?

    Thanks for the great article!

      Jon, trust me, you don’t want to do that. The amount of spam comments you will get will offset any convenience of not requiring a login. In fact, I quit using the WPMU Q&A plugin because I was still getting spam comments even after requiring registration.

        Thanks for the advice! I may have to rethink my approach then. Are there any plugins that allow a question to be asked anonymously that first require the admin’s approval before publishing? This again might lead to a lot of spam filtering, but at least the spam would not be published on the site immediately. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

          Degree3 had a moderation feature when I was looking at it a year ago. You would have to look at their current revision to see if that feature is still there.

    Be careful with WPMU Dev. Their Q&A product pricing is misleading. It’s not Just $19 but in fact $19 PER MONTH if you want to keep it updated with all the latest updates that WordPress comes out with. If you use Paypal, they will automatically sign you up for automatic payments. So I’d be careful endorsing that one. I personally will not ever buy anything from them again.

      I confirm that WPMU Dev methods are disgusting and revolting. These people are way to greedy and marketing oriented, their only goal is to make money as much and as fast as possible, and there’s not any support. These guys are dishonest, they even trick customers advices. I recommend not buying anything from them.
