Q&A communities have been around for quite a long time. Yahoo! Answers and Quora are still decent places to ask questions and get answers from other folks. Creating your own Q&A site is not that difficult either. There are plenty of themes that let you bring your answers community online fast. AnsPress happens to be an elegant plugin for the job. You can use it to gather ideas, answer your customers’ questions, and get your community more engaged.
AnsPress has its own point system. It supports voting on questions and answers. Users can edit questions, change status, view count, and customize the way the system works. Just add the shortcode anspress to your site, and you are set. What’s neat is you don’t need to completely change the way your website looks to take advantage of AnsPress.
AnsPress is still being actively developed. It is a free plugin you can use to add questions and answers to your WordPress site.
