I'm looking into developing a q&a system inside a Custom built Django CMS site.

Should I develop the site on top of askbot? Or can I drag apps across when needed, and build up?

Many thanks.

It won't be simple to adapt Django CMS to work as a Q&A forum, as far as I see it CMS gives you a way to store posts, but you would have to add everything else - questions, answers, comments, votes, badges, reputation system, extra data in the user profile. It will be too much work.

Much easier to integrate Askbot with Django CMS in the same django project.
