Question2Answer Book

Description

This is a plugin for Question2Answer that creates an html e-book of the sites top questions and answers.

Features

  • fully customizable HTML template via admin/plugins
  • options for sorting and inclusion
  • option for static or on-the-fly creation (static requires PHP to write to file)
  • option to create PDF file - requires wkhtmltopdf (see below)
  • optional widget for displaying download links in sidebar

Installation

  1. Install Question2Answer
  2. Get the source code for this plugin from github, either using git, or downloading directly:
    • To download using git, install git and then type git clone git://github.com/NoahY/q2a-book.git book at the command prompt (on Linux, Windows is a bit different)
    • To download directly, go to the project page and click Download
  3. navigate to your site, go to Admin -> Plugins on your q2a install, go to the "Book" panel, select options, click "Create".

Static Files

To output static files you need to find a location that is writeable by PHP. The default is to write to the plugin dir itself, which is probably not writeable. On Linux, something like this works:

touch book.html touch book.pdf chmod 777 book.html book.pdf

PDF File

To use the PDF export, you need to put the binary of wkhtmltopdf, available here:

http://code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf/downloads/list

in the same directory as these plugin files. It works for Linux 64-bit, no guarantees apart from that.

Disclaimer

This is beta code. It is probably okay for production environments, but may not work exactly as expected. Refunds will not be given. If it breaks, you get to keep both parts.

Release

All code herein is Copylefted.
