New version changelog:

  1. Bug report Section Corrected.
  2. Several small errors corrected.

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.

It seems fully featured, but is hampered by a number of non fatal bugs that make you restart from the component menu.
The rankings are PITA
Ease of use
yes. If it weren't for the bugs it'd be 5
Untested -
I used this to: Still testing. Will probably use it if the bugs are fixed
Owner's reply: Without mentioning any error, without reporting in forum, without any mail to us you thought it correct to post a bad review for a free component. Wont you think of atleast giving a chance to correct error if any. I was expecting this review as some paid components are getting effected.
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!

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
