Sam here from creative minds in this
video we’re going to explore some of the advanced features available to the CM Answers plugin in creative
minds some of features include custom CSS shortcodes a rich text editor social media log and
among others so let’s get started with on your dashboard if you go down to your
cm answers tab and you click on logs here you can find a log table with
stats all your posted questions answers and
votes on questions and answers you can see the time it was posted the
user who posted their email address IP address and also a geo
locators you can see where that person is found you can also view this
information in graphic form and you can filter be week month or
year so that you can see this information in the most useful way for you to
analyze so let’s take a look at posted questions
it shows you a log of everyone who has posted questions within a year if we go to votes on
answers just to show you again that you can
filter by month and then you can see the times at highest activity on your site now to get that feature where you can
see the country of the user whose posted under General Settings you need to put
in API key and you can get this from info DB you
can just register for a free account enter all your information and you’re
good to go if you go to disclaimer you can see that you can added
disclaimer to appear when the user first encounters
the question-answer prime and you can choose the text to this
disclaimer and also the text to be accept and
reject buttons under custom CSS in your settings you
can see the default custom CSS and you can also see their various
options for style modifications to determine exactly how that question
answers forms are going to appear for example let’s do the best answer icon size they’re gonna add this to the
CSS and here we’re going to customize the font size and let’s make this a large icon for gonna put 30 and then
lets also choose question font size so we can go ahead and change this to a
size 20 font after you put that in if you go ahead
and update back custom CSS we go to this post
region as you can see the question font appears in size 20 and if scroll down to the question that was
marked as the best answer you can see that the icon appears here very large in
a size 30 font under the appearance tab in your
settings if you scroll down to Saturday here’s where you can enable the
rich text editor that when people post a
questioner answered they see a rich text editor and they can easily bold italicized add
links add media attached so let’s just put in sample answer and you can see how easy
it is for someone to just go in there and edit that text with the rich text and if we post this answer you can see
it shows up with the edits right in your answer and just a reminder that you can vote on
answers you can also mark answers as the best
and searched in on your settings page this is where
you can find some really useful structures that allow you to embed your
question answer forum the CMA questions and answers makes it so that the user who is logged
in to sees their questions and answers and then the CMA questions short code shows all questions on your site and if
you show the additional parameters you can see that
they’ve various options a very useful one is category this is a
very easy way to have multiple forums on your site

can at a search form on your question

again and we’re going to get rid of those views so if you preview those changes you can see directly in this post we
have all questions under the category other
food there’s also a question form that
people can fill out to add their own question and I did the
same thing for film so as you can see you can good different categories up four runs
on different pages on your site another example if we put in my
questions on this post summer recipes we’re going to add the
search parameter so this is gonna add a search are to that question-and-answer fine so
here people can assert the questions and there’s also a list %uh my questions
that I have author under social login time in your settings we can hook up your question at this
point with various social media sites including Facebook so for example for
Facebook and follow this link and create a new after directly in
facebook we’re gonna put in a display name to the category will increase at ap when you’re gonna
choose website and then create that app as the app platform and then you’re just gonna
take the URL your site and put back into be Facebook at as the site URL the changes when you’ll be given an App
ID an app secret and then you can go back to
your dashboard and then just throw these in so after you put in your Apple ID and secret you can update so as you can see on this question-and-answer form page at
