As a continuation of our previous review on the Best Q&A Scripts on the web for your website or Blog we had selected the Q&A Script from DailyWP
To drill in further for our visitors we contacted DailyWP and the team were kind enough to share with us a review copy of their premium theme so that we could get to know more on the working aspects of the wordpress application / theme.
Starting with how to set up the theme

Install the Q&A theme on your blog
The installation of the theme is a cake walk – it took me not more than 15 – 20 seconds, so we can note the point that this is a light and well optimized theme and images.
Configure the Theme
The theme has a dedicated configuration panel – this one is very neatly developed and is easy to understand and configure. (In case you need help read further or even contact me)
Post adding required categories and basic configuration of the theme , your website is up and ready to go live. It was never this simple to create a Q&A website like Yahoo answers or AnswerBag.com

A Point system to engage your users and improve user interaction on your portal. This could be configured based on the priorities you have. Individual point configuration for new questions, new answers, and question promotions.
