About this Plugin

DW Question and Answer, also known as DWQA is a wonderful free plugin by those awesome guys at Design Wall. For those who’re still unfamiliar with this great product DWQA is by far the best free choice if you’re willing to setup a question-answer service on your WordPress based site. You can setup your personal ‘Stackoverflow’ in no more than 5 minutes and the whole configuration process is simple and very well documented.

By default DWQA comes with a super-neat and clean UX and the design is curated in every single pixel however you may want to add your own personal touch to fit it into your current design or perhaps you simply want it to look slightly different and here’s where CSS Hero can join you and dramatically simplify your workflow.

Customizing DW Question and Answer

Adjusting DWQA’s aspect to meet your needs may be a bit tricky as you should get your hands into the whole code, analyze it and adjust it by writing some new CSS. This is a fairly simple task if you’re good at CSS but still it will take you some time to get into it. If you’re new to the CSS world or simply don’t care about getting into it this could be a nightmare.

Let CSS Hero do the dirty job for you (and enjoy live editing!)

CSS Hero now natively supports DWQA, this means that it will immediately recognize DWQA’s structure and let you customize the whole aspect of the plugin with an easy WYSIWYG interface without writing a single line of code.
