Q&A Plugin - changing a discussion to question after posting..

Hi, i;m using the Q&A plugin, but noticed that if you change a discussion to a question after it's been posted then it doesn't appear in the "Unanswered" section.

It only appears in the "unanswered" section if you post as an actual question in the first place i.e. via /community/post/question

Any ideas? Thanks.

    I should also mention that the discussion doesn't have any answers or comments at the time of changing it to a question ;)

    Starting to dig into the code base a little more now.

    It seems that upon changing the discussion type, the field "QnA" isn't updated. (See method "_DiscussionOptions" in the QnA plugin).

    For any questions to appear in "unanswered" the field "QnA" must be set to "Unanswered", which in this case it is set to NULL.

    So, we need to check if that discussion has any "answers", and then set the "QnA" field to "Unanswered" or "Answered" as appropriate.

    I've included my fix, if anyone would like to use it.
