Hi there, awesome theme. I have a question. Is this theme editable, for example.

You have an about page, can I make more of them? The Q&A Categories – Is it possible to link them to pages like the about page. If I wanted can I add full width pages?

Really nice theme just thinking out loud before I buy.

Thanks.

Hi,

You can create as many pages as you want since this is just WP. You could then have links from where ever you want on the site that would link to these. You can easily replicate the pattern that is in the header or footer for linking to these pages as well.

As for full width pages. There is no template built in to do this. The page template uses a similar structure to the rest of the pages which is a 3 col layout with the center column being for the page content.

Thanks and have a great day.

Is there a way to add fields to user profiles to make them more informative like website or facebook page or general bio info? I know these fields are in the wordpress user profiles but these fields don’t show up in the Q&A theme user profiles. Is it possible to use a plugin to add more fields in profiles or is this something that needs to be hard coded?

esterndesign

Hi,

This is a pretty straight forward task if you are familiar with php and html forms. You can use the about me as an example of how you could add these extra fields to suit your site’s needs.

Here is how you would go about doing this (overview and not exact code): 1.) in edit-profile.php you would create the new inputs to collect the data. 2.) In edit-profile.php you would then collect this new data in the $_POST data and pass it to the function to update/edit your profile. 3.) In functions.php there is an edit_user_profile function where you would then collect add the new values that you passed it from edit-profile.php. 4.) In this same function you would use the update_user_meta() function to apply this to the user.

It would be just raw values unless you created unique validation checks for each type.

This would be how i would do this for you.

I would be more then happy to do this add on for a fee. If you are interested, message me via my profile with the complete details that you want done and i will get you a quote.

is there pot file for localization?

esterndesign

Hi,

Currently to localize this theme you just need to find the English words on the theme pages and change them to your localized language. It is pretty straight forward and can be done in a few mins.

Gravatars should work just fine. This is using a built in WP function no different then any other theme.

At first glance it looks like you added these questions (or had them posted) prior to installing this theme which makes the user (admin) no have any of the points associated with them.

You should make sure that the email address that you have with that user’s account is the one that you have on gravatar.com. Also if you go into Edit Profile from the right rail once logged in you will be able to select a default avatar that will show up.

My guess is that you dont have the same email address for the gravatar.com account.

-esterndesign

got around this by adding a default-user-avatar-.jpg into the images folder as it was missing :)

also which file has the sidebox login/logout code in as i need to hack it :)

many thanks

esterndesign

This is in sidebar.php

Hi there,

Whenever you click on someone’s name to go to view their profile it seems to be causing a 404 error.

See here – palmoilfacts.co.uk

I’ve noticed the URL is attempting to go to ”\profile\name” when it should be ”\author\name

EDIT – This seems to be fixed from the default user level change, my mistake!

Hi, after editing functions php in order to translate it, I get this message.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/liong91/public_html/evexianow.com/wp-content/themes/instant-qa/functions.php on line 484

Any solution please?

esterndesign

can you paste line 484 of the function.php file. Looks like you might have an open variable.

Hello,

any chances to add comments annonymously?

Thanks!

esterndesign

Hi,

At this time this option is not an easy one to do. You would need to change a lot of things plus the way that it is stored into the db.

Maybe something that I could look into at a later date if it feels like this will work for the majority.

-esterndesign

Hello, I would like to purchase this theme..

But I have few questions:

How can you add comments annonymously?

And another that i noticed is that all of your showcase use category and postname in permalinks..

Is there anyway to prevent slugs on the URL to make it shorter? It would remove the “and”, “the” and many more in url? So that it would be more short and only the important words will show up..

Thanks!

esterndesign

Hi,

1.) Comments aka Answers are done by member of the site. This is the way that this is working out of the box. It would be much more of an effort to do it this way and harder to control.

2.) This permalink structure is used by this theme throughout. There currently is not an option to do what you are asking for.

3.) There could be a plugin that might do this for you. But I am not sure if it would be compatible if it exists due to the custom posting functions that this theme uses to make it much more then a blog type site.

Is there anyone, or the author, able to set up a quick login option for first time visitor, using facebook, yahoo, gmail, hotmail ?

thats a key features for me.

Looking forward to other buyers experience on this for this theme.

Thank you

Hi,

There have been several people that I have seen that i have done this via a plugin. There are plugins (used to be last time i saw) that allow you to add a FB login to any page. This is what you could do here. Not sure how it would interact with the create new user function that i have. I have personally not used this only seen people that bought this theme with the option on their sites. There were a few comments a long time ago that talked about this subject (but you need to search page by page, sorry just the way it works on TF right now)

Greetings, I purchased the Q&A template and would appreciate guidance on how to add an option that will search through answers in addition to questions and create an ‘unanswered questions’ tab sorted chronologically with the oldest unanswered questions appearing first. Unfortunately since there is no search functionality on Themeforrest’s comments board I was unable to locate any past explanations about these topics apart from one situation where you asked a user to verify their purchase and contact you directly for a solution to the ‘unanswered questions’ tab request. Thanks in advance for your assistance and for creating such an excellent template.

esterndesign

Hi, Thank you for your purchase!

1.) This search addition sounds like a plugin to me. I would search wordpress.org. I thought that answers aka comments were searchable out of the box with WP. If not maybe something like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-everything/ 2.) Creating this Unanswered tab would be similar to the efforts that are happening on the home page. It would be a simple query to search all posts that have comment count of 0. Something like this query:
global $wpdb;
    $gather_unanswered_questions = "SELECT * FROM ".$wpdb->prefix."posts WHERE post_type='post' AND post_status='publish' AND post_author>0 AND comment_count=0 ORDER BY post_date DESC LIMIT ".$limit."";
    $unanswered_questions = $wpdb->get_results($gather_unanswered_questions);

Why can’t I get my “sign up” to work for the instant Q & A theme and also how do I add Google ads to Instant Q & A.

esterndesign

Hi,

Just to try to find out what is going on. Have you created the page and assigned it the correct peramlink structure that was outlined in the instructions manual? If you have done these can you either message me via my profile with some more info about what is wrong with your sign-up page or a url so that i can check to see what is going on.

As for adding Google ads, in the Instant QA Settings page there are input box were you can add your google ad code to based on the size and placement of the ad. Each ad section is clearly marked. You will also have to have an Adsense account with Google to get the ad tags.

Hope that this helps.

Regards,

-esterndesign

Thanks for helping me with the sign up. All works now. I tried what you said about google ads. I went to Instant Q&A settings and copied my google ad code inside one of the boxes but the code just shows up on the main page in the appropriate banner area but shows page cannot be found and some of the code shows up there too. Am I posting the google ad code in the wrong boxes? I already have a google adsense account.

esterndesign

Hi,

It sounds like you might be copying the wrong code or only partially getting the code. I would double check that you are getting all the code that you need.

Without seeing it, it is hard to tell what the issue is.

Greetings,

The account recovery function does not work on my website bit.ly/MjalkV An email is successfully sent with the username and randomly generated password to the registered email address submitted on the ‘forgot password’ form, however, the new access details fail to grant the user access to their account. I have reset the password 3 times and all 3 attempts generate the error: You seem to have entered a wrong password.

Thank you for your assistance and for the otherwise great template.

esterndesign

Hi,

I just visited your site:

- Signed up user: tester123 (success) - Got Sign Up Email (success) - Logged Out from Site (success) - Visited Login Page -> Click on Forgot Password Link - Entered my email address and submitted form (success) - Got Forgot Password reset email and new password (success) - Returned to site Login page, entered username and new pass from email and login worked just fine the first time.

Not sure what is going on but seems to be working just as i have designed it and how it was made.

Can you provide any other reasons that might be causing your use case. I can’t seem to replicate it.

Feel free to delete this newly created account.

On the home page of your site if you just add /rss to the end you will get the feed.

Hello. I have my Instant Q&A almost ready to go. I did a test, had my daughter sign in and posted a question. Then I went and answered her question. I can see the answer but it shows “no answers” next to her original question. How do I fix this?

PS, you have been very helpful so far!

Pre-sale question: is there a feature to MODERATE the questions before they are posted live?

esterndesign

Hi.

Not out of the box but with a few changes it could be.

Regards.
