1. Live notification system

Taking advantage of the WordPress Heartbeat API, your site now have a live notification system. Every time a new post is published, your visitors receive a real-time message. If they feel interested in it, they can click on the notify message to go to the new post.

You can consider this function as a bridge which helps visitors to involve in different topics and make your site more active.

2. Front-end WordPress Customizer

Different from our previous themes, QAEngine now uses the WordPress customizer to apply all needed changes in appearance, and still directly in the front-end.

Using this powerful tool, you can quickly change the colors in your site without any limitations, as well as other information such as your site title, taglines…

Simply click on the color you want to set it up for different purposes:

–          The site’s link color,
–          The main action color,
–          The sidebar background color,
–          The header background color,
–          And the header menus background color.

Besides, in the Navigation section, you can decide which menus to be displayed in the front-end. Currently, QAEngine supports two menus and you can select where to apply them: on the header or the left sidebar.

QAEngine’s Price Change

Maybe some of you are aware that QAEngine has also been published in ThemeForest, just like its older brother WordPress forum theme ForumEngine. This has led to a pricing difference between the two places. In order to amend this issue, the price of QAEegine in EngineThemes is now reduced to $49. This will be effective right after this blog is published.

For those who have already purchased QAEngine with a higher price, don’t worry yet. We promise to compensate you with a FREE extension, which is still a work in progress at the moment and will be released soon. And we believe that you wouldn’t be disappointed with it.

Please accept our apology for this inconvenience and thank you very much for your understanding.

P.S. Don’t forget to tell us which features you are most excited about in this update in the below comment section. 😉

    Hi guys!

    First off, thank you for creating such a great theme! Going to put it in good use very soon 😉

    One improvement proposal regarding future updates: Could you link a changelog OR the actual post (like this one) to the ThemeForest QA Engine page? As a customer, I’d love to know what has been fixed and which new features have been implemented in a new version of the theme when I get the update notification in my email (From ThemeForest).

    Thanks guys and keep up the great work! 🙂

    Thank you for the lovely theme. However, is there a way I can remove visibility of user’s email address when checking out user profiles?
