Kindly note that this component is developed and tested by a single developer. So I request you help me and report any bugs found in the forum. This can be considered in its beta stage. Also note that support for Joomla 2.5 has ended from my side. But I hope it still works fine in J 2.5. Thanks.


I am using this extension since a year almost and I can only recommend it for everyone searching for a free questions-answers component. The support is great, I requested a bug fix for SEF URL's and the team is following up with it promptly. They have placed a huge effort to get this component for us free. Thank you!

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot for the review. I am a bit late in updating my component in JED as I am busy upgrading it with new functionlities. I am adding a group system where only a particular group can be allowed to answer and view a question. Its almost nearing completion and will be released in the end of mar 14.

The componenente works very well, you can give or take away points depending on the user action, to qualify based on the scores by rewarding the most active users and more functionalities.

In short, allows you to create a complete site type to yahoo answer!

The creators of the component also provide excellent help and advice and are always very kind!

Most helpful developer


Posted on 02 November 2012

I must say the developer of this component is most helpful find a bug a new version is out same day or the next with the bug fixed. Very good component especially for being such a new one. I have a feeling in the next few weeks this component will be much better than the commercial ones out there right now. Keep up the excellent work. Right now this component is as good as any of the paid ones out there


Need CSS improvement


Posted on 10 October 2012

This is a good alternative to some other commercial extensions. Though it lacks some additional features I feel they can make it more better. Only one issue i.e a person who asks question should not be allowed to answer his own question. Some restrictions can be added. Also css should be improved though its not a big deal.
