Hey there !
I am a bit disappointed :

  • I deployed my self-hosted Discourse following “stable” branch.
  • I just added this plugin following plugin install guide

and my topics look like regular topics :thinking:
No vote, no way to comment…
What did i miss ?

Did you start a new topic and chose the Q&A mode?

Yes @Moin i did chose the Q&A mode


What i get

Currently we are developing the plugin on top of latest Discourse version so there may be some issues running the plugin on stable branch. Since the plugin is under active development we are focusing the compatibility with latest version. Running the plugin on latest version (tests-passed branch) should work fine.
