Additional Reviews from WordPress.org
By having CM Answers, I am able to keep everything organized without all the hassle. Users are able to answer questions in a stackoverflow style. My blog is staying more organized and the users seem to like the layout better too.
The plugin was so easy to install. I installed it quickly and there were no problems. I also am in love with the social media incorporation. Users are able to sign in through social media, which makes things easier for them too. This plugin has saved me a lot of time and energy. I love being able to stay organized and on top of things. This plugin has allowed for me to do just that!
Easy to download and install, plus it contains no bugs. Everything works flawlessly! What I like most about it is, it allows the users to post questions and answers in a well organized, Stackoverflow format. Love the incorporation of social media login as well; since everyone uses social media these days! Makes the registration process for my users super easy and convenient.
Also love the ability to customize it, so I can change up the styles every once in awhile to give my users a fresh feel. Overall, very happy with this plugin and just wish I knew about it sooner!
LOVE this plugin! It installs easily and started working without a hitch in almost no time. It seems to be working pretty solid as well. This plugin appears to be really well designed and certainly is EXACTLY what I need for a new site. My only disappointment is that the free version doesn’t really honor my theme’s CSS with regard to page layout. (Edit) Now that I have purchased the Pro, the pages generated by the plugin appear as if they are absolutely native to the rest of the site – all .css formatting, containers, etc. are identical to the rest of the site’s theme.(/edit)
