This theme contains everything you need to build this kind of site, and features lots of community building aids which can help encourage your visitors to sign up and stick around.
QAEngine includes a point-scoring system which allows users to rise up through the ranks and earn privileges on the site, based on how they interact with the content published. The theme also makes use of an up and down voting system for rating the answers that are posted, helping the best content to rise to the top. The question asker can then mark one answer as the best response, making it easy for future visitors to quickly determine which the correct answer was.
This WordPress question and answer theme is highly configurable and features a very modern and attractive design making it an excellent choice.
Ask Me features a bold and modern design that closely follows the flat user interface and material design trend. However, thanks to the included prebuilt color schemes and custom color picker tool, you are free to give your site its own flavor and personality.

This Q&A theme includes three homepage layouts, enabling you to pick the right style for your website, simply by clicking a button. Each user gets their own profile page, as well as the ability to earn points for helping their fellow users.
Those who submit questions can help the rest of the community by marking the best answer as their favorite response. The ability to follow questions enables other visitors keep up to date with the answers as they are submitted.
With a fully mobile responsive design, your community can post questions and answers on the go, helping to create a fast-paced online resource that serves a real purpose. It’s even possible to add products to your website, thanks to the support for the leading WooCommerce store builder plugin.

Robust Q&A is a modern and stylish theme for building a question and answer website with WordPress. The attractive design covers not only the website, but also the registration and login pages to create a seamless user experience for visitors who want to create an account on your site.
When posting a question, users can tag and categorize their submissions to make it easier for other users to find, and therefore increase the chances of them getting an answer from the community.

With the Robust Q&A theme, it is also possible for users to comment on the answers that are given, which can be used to agree with the content, or ask the poster to provide more details.
Other features of this theme include a points system for users, a leader board for displaying user rankings, a reporting system for flagging inappropriate content, and email notifications when new content is posted.
