The Best Answer extension allows you to specify a forum for use by the extension. The extension uses forum settings and permissions to control access. To configure Best Answer for use by a forum, follow the steps below.

  1. Edit the forum details of the forum you wish to use. You can enable this extension on multiple forums! Under the General forum settings section, click the "Yes" radio button next to "Enable Best Answer feature".
