Answers Forum
Ever wanted to enable the ability to specify a certain forum as an "answer" forum, where members can post questions and select the best answer given by the community? This is similar to yahoo answers, a very effective website where users can post questions and seek answers from registered users. Answering questions can get to be a mess, keep it organized and save yourself a bit of hassle when dealing with Q&A's. As a webmaster, you already have enough on your hands to have to worry about answering questions sometimes, and need an effective way to do this! Or maybe, you just want to let your community do it for you

thx

And last, the "Answered / Unanswered" prefixes are only being displayed when viewing the forumdisplay of the selected forum. How do you change it so that these prefixes show up when people search, specifically when using the "Todays New Posts" search.
What about this?

I think this covers it correctly. I have purchased the mod, and you can see it in action here http://www.4x4mecca.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=405 post up any more questions.
This should really be posted in the Mod description, or at least on the premium product link.

At the moment, only the premium version supports both.

If you can find me the link for this, I'll definitely consider creating a readme for you all or offering an alternate method perhaps

I'm highly considering buying the premium version for this...but I would like the option to allow certain usergroups the ability to choose "best answer", sort of like at yahoo. Once you reach Level 2 you are allowed to choose best answers. I see you have "Allow users to choose best answer" but I see nothing in the usergroup, user options, or vb options and I have only seen it working for admins... Maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot...?

And I would like to see integration with vBexperience as I'm using that on my largest forum (since vBCredits is taking way to long to develop their addons)...

I've installed the lite version on my board but lacks all the features I would really like to have so if my suggestions are added, I'll be sure to purchase the premium version.

Both are great suggestions. Currently, only the admin and thread starter can choose the answer. However, i can see the need to allow others to do so as well (based on usergroups). This feature will be added As for integration with vbexperience, i will look into that as well

I'd appreciate some more guidance or help with how to achieve this for those of us without much knowledge of php.

installed at bought the premium version straight away to support your works

will be better is there is NO SINGLE template edit required for designing the best answer, answere, unanswered fields.

4x4 posted edit xml , can i have more info on that?

example

<span style="font-weight: bold; color: #006400;">Answered:</span>

<span style="font-weight: bold; color: #ff0000;">Unanswered:</span>

would like to replace the field with icons.

great hack. nominated

Here is my code. If you go to "Plugin Manager" in your control panel, then find and Edit Plugin "Answer Forums - Show answered/notanswered In Forum" You can replace it with this and your own image links of course!

If the thread creator selects Yes, then the thread will have Answer functionality.

This way, the answer functionality does not have to be confined to dedicated forums
Is this something that you will add to either the light or premium version?
Having both threads with and without answer functionality in the same forums, is a must for me. Please be so kind to add this.
