Redmine Question Plugin: Create FAQ, Q&A, knowledge bases, and idea reporting pages

The Questions plugin replaces Redmine Forum module with a new, better interface and adds new features such as tags, votes, page views. You can have a forum in a style of StackOverflow. The plugin keeps primary Redmine forums untouched and working (notifications, email reply, clipped and closed topics).

Features:
  • Global forums list
  • Idea statuses
  • Featured/locked questions
  • Voting for answers, commenting replies
  • Easy moderation
  • Live search
  • Tags
  • Votes
  • Views count

Frequently Asked Questions
The plugin lets you create an FAQ section, where your team can post questions and answers, comment and vote for given replies, and once the solution has been found to select it. You can feature the most important or popular question to keep them on top of the list. Best rated answers, as well as featured ones, remain on the top to be easily found by anyone


Create knowledge base
This feature allows you to create a self-help section. It's more advanced than wiki and can allow interactions. By default users can vote if the topic was useful the topic. You can lock content to prevent editing and commenting.


Create idea reporting section
Let your employees share their ideas, whatever they may refer to. Users can post their ideas, and then each one of them can be discussed, commented and voted. You can add statuses and tags to the Ideas, as well as feature them or lock to disable modifications.

Overall, this is a useful plugin. However, as Thomas Jones reported two years ago, using a single-quote in a subject results in a server error (HTTP 500). This can be fixed by escaping single-quoted values when performing a query (or use a prepared stmt)

Little rough around the edges. Things choke horribly if you use single-quotes in a Question/subject.

Great plugin, we use it as QA/Knowledge base.

Very much used in my workplace.

Some bugs though :
- tag list only showing first 30 tags
- page navigation between results not taking into account the forum context.

Good job!

Conflicts with Question Plugin, they replace the same point of menu Help.
