2015-10-05 10:58:37 -0500 marked best answer Automatic email notifications?

One of the reasons I was able to attract so many users on my OSQA site was that email notifications were on by default.

Each time someone commented or answered something you participated on, you got an email by default, unless you shut it off.

How do I get this behavior from askbot? It's crucial.

2015-10-05 10:58:37 -0500 marked best answer SettingNotSet: ("Startup error, couldn't load EXTERNAL_KEYS.RECAPTCHA_SECRET", None)

I get this error when I first run my server:

SettingNotSet: ("Startup error, couldn't load EXTERNAL_KEYS.RECAPTCHA_SECRET", None)

I'm running on webfaction using the directions here: http://askbot.org/en/question/3147/need-step-by-step-installation-procedure-in/

This is the same issue that was reported here: http://askbot.org/en/question/3264/running-askbot-test-suites/ and here: https://gist.github.com/2713654

I got this error both with askbot 0.7.43 or askbot-devel.

2015-10-05 10:58:37 -0500 marked best answer Should I use askbot 0.7.43 or askbot-devel?

Which version of Askbot should I use?

How stable is the -devel trunk?

2015-10-05 10:58:35 -0500 marked best answer What search is used if Sphinx is not installed?

The documentation offers the opportunity to use sphinx search. However, it appears that there is search functionality even without sphinx installed.

How does adding sphinx improve / extend the default search functionality?

2015-10-05 10:58:35 -0500 marked best answer Should I create an admin user on my first syncdb?

The install instructions here say:

Changed in version 0.7.21: When the script asks you if you want to create a superuser, answer yes if you want to create one. By default Askbot sets admin status(superuser) for the first user created automatically but also supports this form.

Deprecated since version 0.7.21: When the script asks you if you want to create a superuser, answer no.

These instructions are confusing. If I am running 0.7.29, should I create a superuser or not?

I recently set up memcache. How do I check that it is working correctly?
