Plugin: The New Wings to Your Answer
The most notable in this update is the support of Plugin. From small tweaks to big changes, you can make it happen in Answer. Read the documentation of Plugin here before bust a move.
A quick example is to embrace a simplified and efficient user authentication experience with the plugin's OAuth capabilities for your Answer. Now, your community members can sign up or log in with existing accounts from social media platforms. For adding other log-in options, admin can go Admin>Plugins>OAuth2Basic, then fill in the necessary information in OAuth2Basic.
Add features, customize appearance, or enhance functionalities with Plugin and make Answer in the way you want. Don’t forget to share with us your work.
