I have a website that runs like doctype. Its a Q&A site too. http://askaperfectstranger.com/ However, I have no page that runs the answer and question list/summary for the homepage. I cannot find a HTML code tutorial. I use HIT designer software to make the website. Pls help me. I need to design the homepage with the Q&A summary list and comments. it has to look like yahoo answers or other Q&A sites.

When I went to the link you provided, it looked like a normal WordPress default installation and theme. It seems odd that it would be so different from the thumbnail in this post. In any case, if you need to learn HTML, you might start with W3C tutorials. Go through all of it. It will give you a good start.

Alright, I want to start off with a clarification. From your post above, I am sort of assuming you are new to this and trying to learn how things work. That's good, and this is a good place to start, but if I am underestimating you, I apologize.

Now, I would like to start by saying that you'll probably want to get familiar with what goes into a website, at least at the general level so you can understand each piece in the process. I wrote a lengthy description of the process as the answer to another person's question on the topic, so reading over that may be of help. The key components for you will probably be the last section that I updated.

Now, you question specifically is with a piece of software I have honestly never even heard of. That said, no matter the software, you will need certain things for a question and answer site, such as a Database, and a programming language. Many out of the box solutions don't offer the flexibility for what you are looking to create and are instead intended for quickly getting something in front of users to see, but not interact with very much. They are usually meant to serve pages rather than generate them. I could be wrong, but I think an out of the box solutions is not necessarily what you're looking for. Again, I've never used the software you speak of, so this is based on experience with other software packages.

As a side note, I'd also recommend looking at a number of other questions here for getting an idea of what you'll need. For example, this question on allowing users to comment might also give you a good idea on what's needed for user feedback and response.
