OSQA Administration Guide
We recommend that all OSQA administrators read this guide in its entirety. Not only will this guide tell you how to setup and customize OSQA, but it will also show you how to make OSQA work for you. Features such as reputation and bootstrap mode will help you grow your site into the giant web property that you know it can become. However, before OSQA can start doing its job, you need to tell OSQA what it needs to do.
The administration section is located at www.yourdomainname.com/admin. From here you will be able to view and edit all your major OSQA settings. To the left of the screen you will see your website's statistics. This includes stats for questions, answers and users along with the most recent activity.
On the right hand side of the screen is the Administration menu. Almost all administrative duties can be preformed from here. The main purpose of this guide is to explain these links and the settings contained within them.
Here are some links with information that this guide doesn't cover that you may find useful.
"Bootstrap mode" basically means that all the minimum requirements are relaxed in order to help encourage and incubate growth at newly established OSQA sites. When the bootstrap mode is enabled, your site will allow everyone who registers to vote, comment, answer, etc. It is recommend that you place your new OSQA site in bootstrap mode until it builds up momentum and really gets going. Once the site does become popular, you may want to set reputation requirements that users must fulfill before they can perform certain actions, such as voting.
To enable bootstrapping go to the administration page and click the button labeled "go bootstrap."
The "Basic Settings" section in the administration page is where you can manipulate the general information about your OSQA site.
Email is a key factor of any website. The "Email Settings" section is where you inform OSQA about your email configuration.
External keys are for using the services of various external providers such as Google. Certainly OSQA supports the use of Google, Twitter and Facebook. Follow the links bellow to get keys for these resources.
After receiving your new keys add them into there receptive fields and click the save button.
