  Are you willing to share your Question2Answer configuration?

+ 2 like - 0 dislike

I see that Physics Overflow uses the Question2Answer platform and that you've made a bunch of configuration changes from the default setup.  My community is interested in creating a similar setup to yours, and we were wondering if we could take a shortcut past the "figure it all out from scratch" stage.  Are your configuration settings, list of plugins in use, and other settings available to the public?  Or if not to the public, is there a way for an outsider to request them?

asked Nov 24, 2019 in Discussion by SE Refugee (0 points) [ no revision ]

Hi SE Refugee, for me personally it would be fine to share our configuration and pluggins. I have forwarded your request to our system development team.

If they agree, it would the probably be best to switch do discussing the procedure by email at some point.

To avoid having to publish any email here on meta, you could also start an email discussion concerning the topic to admin@physicsoverflow.org

Thanks @Dilation.  I'll follow up with email.
