If you look at the footer of the site there's a link that says "Powered by OSQA" - http://www.osqa.net/ has the details.

This is correct. Answers is powered by OSQA.

How is OSQA intregrated with Confluence? my client would like to use this concept on a page within a space.

My guess is that Answers is not provided by a plugin. Instead, it is very likely a custom version of StackOverflow ( http://stackexchange.com/about ).

@Sue Hallword: Answers runs off OSQA and as such is not integrated with Confluence, but is a stand alone system.

On developer.confluence.com, Atlassian have created a custom plugin called "Answers Linker Plugin" that queries Answers and dispays some results in the <div id="answers-container">..</div> element.
