    Thanks Leyun for sharing this module with the community. I did not manage to get the plugin running on my testing platform as the underlying QA library is hard-coded to support MySQL only, and only the older (original) mysql extension. That driver has been deprecated as of PHP 5.5.5 and the plugin does not work with the new mysqli extension (reported as issues #2 in your tracker).

    As a consequence, I can't approve the plugin fully here. I've put a warning to the top of the plugin description and moved it to the experimental category. I am ok with publishing it there so that folks can eventually find it there.

    Hi,

    Just to make sure: I'm using PostgreSQL, so this plugin will not work on my setup, right?

    Thank you David. We are going to add support for the mysqli extension in the next update.

    Hi Leyun,

    Is this nice plugin fully compatible with 3.1?

    Hi Leyun,

    That's what I was looking for! Thank you.

    Do you plan to extend functionality?

    It'll be great if you add some base q2a features:

    - search elements by keyword
    - delete (not hide) elements
    - moodle avatars in users rating
    - categories!
    - number of questions views
    - tags managment

    Big thanks again for that project!

    Hi Leyun,
    Any estimate on when we can expect the update that supports mysqli?

    This is a exactly what I'm looking for to use in our community forums.
    Any chance to get a version for Moodle 3.2 that work with MySQLi?
    You would make a lot of people happy if there was such a version soon smile

    Hi Ricardo:
    as Question2Answer only supports MySQL so far, and I can't find any information about when they will make it compatible with PostgreSQL, I don’t think we will have an update for PostgreSQL in the near future. Sorry for that.
