    Hi All,

    I  want to integrate an open source Q&A software with my wordpress site. I want help , and I will be willing to pay for it, from $30 to upwards up-till $60. Send me a quote ? Here are the details :

    1. What is the Q&A software :

    2. The Installation and integration with wordpress is quite straightforward (just one folder copy and one file change):

    3. What is its default theme that I use :  See attachement – DefaultSnowFlat.png

    4. How much I was able to modify and make it work with my Kleo Theme – MyKleoSnowFlatMod.png. The fonts are fixed, the layout is proper, the avatar is pulled from buddypress, layout is so so.

    I am attaching my own them called which is a modification of the default SnowFlat theme that I achieved with my little knowledge of html, css and php.  Just place it in qa/qa-theme folder and its ready to work. There is just one qa-theme.php file and one qa-styles.css that needs to be changed. Some one experienced should be able to get it all setup well along with a plugin called which helps get the avatars pulled and also activity inside buddypress profile. There is a tab functionality that is broken that needs to be fixed.

    I am hoping that someone in this community would be interested and capable of helping me in this regard, especially @shamstr 🙂

    Even if I make it by paying someone or by myself, I would even be willing to give it to the community.

    Think about this, it could even become a full fledged new feature for Kleo where it becomes extremely easy to setup a dedicated Q&A for any website ! Your customers would be so happy.

    Please respond if you have any interest.

    The coding I did:

    	 * Adding aditional meta for responsive design
    	 * @since Snow 1.4
    	public function head_metas()
    		// Kleo Works header
    		//create right sidebar template
    		$this->output('<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>');
    	 * Footer in full width bottom bar
    	 * @since Snow 1.4
    	public function footer()
    		$this->output('<div class="qam-footer-box">');
    		$this->output('<div class="qam-footer-row">');
    		$this->widgets('full', 'bottom');
    		$this->output('</div> <!-- END qam-footer-row -->');
    		$this->output('</div> <!-- END qam-footer-box -->');
    		// Kleo Works footer
