Detailed User Guide

How can I customize the look and feel of the Answers plugin?

In your template you can custom create a directory called “CMA”. Inside this directory you can place a structure that is similar to the one inside “cm-answers/views/frontend/”. If the file is properly able to be found in your template’s directory, then it will have priority over the default. Otherwise, the default file from our plugin directory will be used.

When I purchased, I missed the fact that many have given this product a 1 star review. I had a technical issue with the plugin that they were not able to fix. I will say that they tried, and I tried to make it work then all went quiet until I asked for a refund. Suddenly, they became interested again. When I told them I’d moved on, they didn’t care and persisted with trying to fix. Ultimately, they refused to issue a refund. BEWARE. They should revise their refund policy to state they reserve the right to take as long as we want to find a resolution. Don’t go near these guys. I’ve disputed with my bank which I said I’d do. They still didn’t care and accused me of making threats. It was no threat. I asked if they really want6ed go that route. Apparently, yes. They are the first company I’ve run across who would not honor a refund request.

My reasons: Support: The support agents ask you to purchase development hours on virtually any issue you ask about (small or big). Updates: The updates rarely provides new features Design: The overall feel and design of the backend is better than the frontend, The single question page design looks ancient, Questions and answers in the page aren’t easily distinguishable. Responsive: The index page(questions list page) design on mobile, seems like just plain text and lines, excluding tags Personally, i’ll not recommend.

It is easy to get cynical about customer support. So when we approached CM about the possibility of fixing a rival product to CM Answers that had started to conflict with CM Glossary Pro + you can imagine we didn’t expect much of a response. But CM not only fixed the conflict, they also gave us the tools to make some alterations to CM Answers so that we are now in a position to compare an enhanced CMA with its fully operational competitor. I, for one, am now sold on the idea that CM Answers is the most sophisticated option out there with a support team that truly goes the extra mile. Thank you.

This plugin is a good idea but the execution needs a lot of work, particularly with the Ask the Expert addon. There is hardly any documentation available, but at least if you ask a question the service team responds quickly. Too many features of the plugin can’t be changed by the admin. The profile created for users can’t be changed, and there are just two fields. There is very poor integration with their other plugin cm registration, with duplicate login and registration forms and no ability for the admin to choose among them. Also poor integration with Peepso, and this addon was just released. Multiple issues with the Expert addon, but this is a premium product so I don’t know if I’m allowed to mention those here, but there is nowhere on their website to review the premium versions.
