for details on what all of the configuration options control.

After you're done integrating, we recommend that you go to a product page on your storefront and submit a test question. Submit the test question with an email that is not the same email as your administration user, so that Answerbase can recognize it as if it were a customer asking the question. This will ensure that your integration was successful and your customers are able to post questions successfully on your site.
