:open_book: Install Guide How to install plugins in Discourse


To create a new topic with votable posts open the menu in the top left of the composer and select ‘Toggle Post Voting’:

With the topic in Post Voting mode, there’s a filter to sort answers by votes or by activity. Here’s an example of one in action:


Once installed, the plugin is enabled by default and the available admin settings are:

Setting Site Description
qa enabled Enable Post Voting Plugin
qa undo vote action window Number of minutes users are allowed to undo votes in Post Voting topics (enter 0 for no limit)
qa comment limit per post Number of comments allowed on each post
qa enable likes on answers Enable like button on replies on Post Voting topics

And there’s also one on the settings page of the category wrench menu to set all new topics in each particular category in the Post Voting style:

post voting category default


This plugin is inspired by Pavilion’s fantastic work on the Question Answer Plugin. As always, thank you for your continued contributions to the Discourse project. :medal_sports: :slight_smile:


Is it possible to make the upvoting/downvoting anonymous? Right now, if you click the number between the up and down arrows, you can see who voted.


And also, is that possible to show the 1st post upvotes on the Topics list? :slight_smile:
