As far as I can see who can accept answer in easydiscuss is controlled by user group.
I wanted to set it so that only the person who posted the question can accept the answer, and I found some tickets about this issue without a solution. I came up with the following solution.

I share it so that others can use it, and for the Easydiscuss team to evaluate it. Please tell me if it's a good solution.
Thank you!

Change the file: components/com_easydiscuss/themes/wireframe/post/default.actions.php

Add the following code in the line 59 under <?php if ($post->canAcceptAsAnswer()) { ?>

$usert = JFactory::getUser()->id;
$db = JFactory::getDbo();
$query = $db->getQuery(true);
$query->where('id =' . $post->id);
$parentidet = $db->loadObjectlist();
$postp = $parentidet[0]->parent_id;

$db = JFactory::getDbo();
$query = $db->getQuery(true);
$query->where('id =' . $postp);
$idet = $db->loadObjectlist();
$userp = $idet[0]->user_id;

$userad = JFactory::getUser();
$groups = $userad->get('groups');
foreach($groups as $group) {
if( $group == 8 or $userp == $usert){ ?>

And don't forget to add another two } above the line <?php if ($post->canReply()) { ?>

so that it looks like:

<?php }}} ?>

By doing this only users in user group 8 and question owner can accept answer.

Please let me know if it's a good idea to use this solution.
