Welcome to the Question2Answer Q&A. There's also a demo if you just want to try it out.

In a simplified install with voting disabled, I want to number each answer to make it visually easier to see the different answers, by numbering them (and then applying css).

No.  No, it's not.

It is definitely possible with some modification. Read up on advanced themes (see main site), then override the function that lists the answers to increment a counter and output the number on each answer.

Another possiblity that may work is using CSS counters. Basically if you target the "qa-a-list-item" class you should be able to add a number in there. Try this in the CSS:


body {
   counter-reset: section; /* Set the section counter to 0 */
qa-a-list-item:before {
  counter-increment: section; /* Increment the section counter */
  content: counter(section); /* Display the counter */
  font-size: 200%; /* style it how you like */
  font-weight: bold;
The CSS-thing is interesting - and something I'm looking at.
Being somewhat anal, I try to get the code basics 'right' rather than relying on css.
My preferred solution is to have the code do the numbering, then perhaps use css to add a color background to alternate answers and thus provide easier differentiation.
I know WP can use a counter variable in the php code, hence my request here.
I've been trying to understand advanced themes, and specifically how the code elements control the published page - but, being non-tech, most of it is beyond my knowledge and I'm finding it hard to grasp.
