Question prefix - This sets the default thread prefix for question threads. When the prefix is selected or deselected, it will automatically change the question status checkbox when a thread is created or edited.

Note for Question prefix: If a user selects another prefix or the default question prefix is not available in the forum the thread is being created in, the prefix will not be applied.

Answered prefix - After a thread is marked with the best answer, it will be given the default thread prefix marked here. When the prefix is selected or deselected, it will automatically change the question status checkbox when a thread is created or edited.

Note for Answered prefix: If the default prefix is not available in the forum the thread is being created in, the prefix will not be applied. If an answered prefix is selected, it will overwrite the existing prefix.

Show "Best answers" profile tab - When enabled, this creates a tab on a user’s profile displaying their answers that have been marked as best answers.
