I’d like to keep my Q&A system good. But users usually don’t care much.
Sometimes they may ask new question as an answer to an old question.
What I need to be able to do, is to moderate my AnsPress installation:
- pull answer out of a question and turn it into a separate new question
(when user asked new question in an “answer” form by mistake)
- move answers between different questions
(when there are duplicate questions and both have good answers)
- be able to transform Comments into either questions or answers as well

Found that currently trashing answer doesn’t revert/update question’s “__ap_activity” (minor flaw)
Was able to achieve (1) by going to wp_posts, then changing post_title, post_name, guid to new values, changing post_parent to 0 and post_type to question.
Now “old” question still shows answers: 2 (it should be 1 now), and I guess there are a lot of tails left like in wp_ap_activity “new_answer” (although this meta looks fine, should just add new row like “new_question_from_answer”, no idea what it’s used for 🙂
