Please report bugs on github (use "Code Repository" link in sidebar). Thanks!
Thanks for the bug report! Any chance you can report it to https://github.com/ewinslow/elgg-questions/issues?
Hi, all, Thanks for the feedback.
Just so you all are aware: I no longer work full time with Elgg, so this plugin no longer has potential benefit to my workplace, which means I have less time and incentive to upkeep it. In addition, my wife just had our first baby on Monday, so that means even less time for on-the-side stuff. It's unlikely I'll get to this in the near future, but I definitely encourage anyone who has the ability and availability to fork on github and send me a pull request. I'd be happy to accept it and upload an updated version.
As with all my plugins, I've done my best to code this plugin to Elgg 1.8 standards, so it should be very approachable for anybody familiar with Elgg development. It looks like there's a lot of interest here, so I'm sure any contributions would be greatly appreciated!
@luciano, no, not really. Most of the work is on the frontend (views) which was drastically changed in 1.8 so would have to be essentially rewritten for 1.7. Since there are already other Q&A plugins for 1.7, I'm not bothering.
if you want to add the "Add a question" button, just go to /mod/questions/pages/questions/all.php
After the first line:
I've tested it in Elgg 184.108.40.206 and works fine.
So you will have the add button.

Working on a 1.8.1 migration.
Download @ https://github.com/janeklb/elgg-questions/zipball/1.8.1
Or view source: https://github.com/janeklb/elgg-questions/tree/1.8.1 (note the 1.8.1 branch, vs. master)
I have the same as Stumpy, I can see the entity Questions added to the menu and inside the Groups, but no way to add a single question. So it remains a bit empty inside the Questions :(
I'm running Elgg release 1.8.3. with the Questions plugin 1.8.1b only. Possibly that's the issue. Or has anyone updated it?
