Hi, I have some questions for the theme:
  • 1. Is it possible to have rich text( basic HTML, bold, italic, link, image, youtube video) when post questions or answers? Maybe using some codes like the comments here
  • 2. hwo to rate the answers? Is it possible to list the answers by rating?
  • 3. I found the answers are actually comments, does this good for google index and seo?
  • 4. Does it support wordpress menus?
  • 5. I think it is good to have an option like “Send me an email if this comment receives any replies”

    Hi hafidchow,

    Thanks for the questions:

    1. Out of the box this option is not there but some people have modified the textareas with a tinyMCE to get this effect. It would require you to remove some html prevention code but it is pretty straigt forward. There posses a security risk by allowing such content and is the main reason that it currently is mostly plain text.

    2. There is no out of the box solution for this but there are plugins that will allow you to add a rating system to posts and comments aka questions and answers. I dont think that it would allow those rating values to be sorted though. Pretty much a like or dont like for each entry.

    3. Everything should index just like a regular theme with posts and answers. SEO can enhanced beyond what is includedin the theme with some great plugins. Yoast has a great one.

    4. No wordpress menu support at this time.

    5. I think that you could do this with a plugin as well. Not sure of one off the top of my head but could be done. Again not included in this theme.

    6. Editing questions and answer will have to be done in wp-admin by admins only. Regular author user types dont have access to edit their questions or answers.

    Great suggestions and will be noted for possible future updates.

    Hope that this answers your questions.

    Have a great day.

    Hi esterndesign,

    I am from germany and also purchased your theme. Thank you for this nice work. I spent days full of work an translated, edited an improved the theme. Now it fits nearly perfectly to the content of my webside. I just wanted to ask you if you could integrate my side into your “Blog Role” on the “theme purchase themeforest side”.

    http://muskelfrage.net/ – here it is!

    A german webside for questions and answers about gaining muscles and bodybuilding and fitness tips.

    I just can repeat, I am very grateful to your nice work! Thank you very much! :)

    If i understand you correctly you are asking for the about user info but you want to show it with the question content, if so use this mod of that code:

    <?php $user_info = get_usermeta($post->post_author, 'user_about_me'); echo $user_info; ?>
    

    Hope this helps

    Hey! Is it possible to get a “Remember Me” field for the people who login? (For the normal Login-page”) Regards, N.Pagel

    esterndesign

    The remember me is built into wp automatically unless you delete your cookies it should remember each user since there is a user cookie set upon login.

    Hope this helps.

    I would like to know how can one edit the font on post title and the font size of answers (comments) . If I were the visitor to that Q&A site using this theme I wouldn’t like to read more info of any question due to that unfriendly font size. Guide me, can that font size and font style be changed? If yes, how?

    Hi,

    I have bought your theme – made german translation of code, css modifications and finally for first version it looks really good:

    http://www.urlaubsgenie.com/ – would be nice to feature me on your themeforest page ;-)

    One question & needed feature I have left and can`t find a solution, wtf.

    I want to add to the edit-profile.php page following fields from the users profile so the users can get frontend control about their name & public name:

    http://wpmu.org/how-to-restrict-usernames-and-disable-nicknames-in-wordpress/nickname/

    I tried to copy the code from WP`s user-edit.php & called parameters for that section but couldn`t get it running. Do you have any idea how to solve it?

    Thanks for your answer.

    esterndesign

    Hi,

    I would be more then happy to add your site to the featured sites for this theme. I will add this later today.

    As for your question about expanding the edit-profile fields. There are some concerns that i see with this addition that would not be able to check for existing public names when they change the ones they use.

    You can do it pretty easily with a wp function like this one: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_update_user

    - Add the input fields to the edit profile, pulling the current info from the database. - You could get the new data from the user via the edit-profile form. - Process the data in the edit function to assign these new values (with the function above).

    Then you would have to modify the code all over the theme to pull the correct values for username or names.

    Not a small undertaking but def can be done if you know what you are doing from a php / wordpress perspective.

    Hope that this guides you in the right direction.

    Hello,

    Are there any plans to put some kind of human check on the register form? I get tons of spam on my install and there is no way to avoid it at this time.

    Please let me know if you will be integrating any sort of human check in the system anytime soon.

    Regards, Ray

    esterndesign

    Hi,

    Not at this point to i think that i will add a built in human check but you could easily add in a CAPTCHA part to the signup from. Here is a link to the site where you can get the code:

    what a great theme! Is it possible to get a German version? Or do you have any advice where to get it translated?

    Hi,

    This is beyond the standard support that i can provide for this theme since this is a feature enhancement and not a quick and easy addition. Also i am only able to support users who have bought the theme from ThemeForest.

    If you have any other questions about this theme feel free to ask!

    Hi First, I would like to flatter you for the great work. Second, I’ve installed the theme on Hebrew WP and translated it. After this I’ve installed the following plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ajaxy-search-form/ The plugin adds an ajax search but the problem is it returns results only when I logged-in. Do you have any idea why ?

    Thank you in advance. Ervin

    esterndesign

    Ok i have the fix:

    in functions.php you will find this:

    // Block access to wp-admin unless you are admin
    $access_min_type = 'edit_others_posts';
    $admin_redirect_to = get_option('siteurl').'/my-account/';
    if (defined('ACCESS_MIN_TYPE'))
        $access_min_type = ACCESS_MIN_TYPE;
    if (defined('ADMIN_REDIRECT_TO'))
        $admin_redirect_to = ADMIN_REDIRECT_TO;
    if (!function_exists('wpba_init')) {
        function wpba_init() {
            global $access_min_type, $admin_redirect_to;
            if (strpos(strtolower($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']),'/wp-admin/') !== false) {
                if (!current_user_can($access_min_type)) {
                    if ($admin_redirect_to == '') { 
                        $admin_redirect_to = get_option('siteurl');
                    }
                    // Send a temporary redirect
                    wp_redirect($admin_redirect_to,302);
                }
            }
        }
    }
    add_action('init','wpba_init',0);
    
    Change it to be this (which now allows access to the admin-ajax page):
    // Block access to wp-admin unless you are admin
    $access_min_type = 'edit_others_posts';
    $admin_redirect_to = get_option('siteurl').'/my-account/';
    if (defined('ACCESS_MIN_TYPE'))
        $access_min_type = ACCESS_MIN_TYPE;
    if (defined('ADMIN_REDIRECT_TO'))
        $admin_redirect_to = ADMIN_REDIRECT_TO;
    if (!function_exists('wpba_init')) {
        function wpba_init() {
            global $access_min_type, $admin_redirect_to;
            if (strpos(strtolower($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']),'/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php')) {
            }
            elseif (strpos(strtolower($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']),'/wp-admin/') !== false) {
                if (!current_user_can($access_min_type)) {
                    if ($admin_redirect_to == '') { 
                        $admin_redirect_to = get_option('siteurl');
                    }
                    // Send a temporary redirect
                    wp_redirect($admin_redirect_to,302);
                }
            }
        }
    }
    add_action('init','wpba_init',0);

    yah email me an admin login user account via my profile page.

    Hi I want to use this plugin for register insted of your way Register Plus Redux

    as you see in my blog I use http://fekrabounty.com/main/wp-login.php?action=register

    and when register you must verify your email How I could correct this

    esterndesign

    I have not tested this plugin to see what would happen to those users when they sign up if they will be setup with the correct data points for the site. This is something that you should test on your side.

    I can only provide guidence on how to get something working with the theme out of the box. This sounds to me that this would be a bit of work to make sure that the old register page and links to it are not used and then checking that the users are getting the correct info when they are added to the site.

    Hope that this helps.

    On the signup page, how can we include ‘How did you hear about us?’

    Under signup.php, I saw:

    <?php if ( $_POST[‘signup_post’] == ‘1’) {

    $username = $_POST['user_login'];
    $password = $_POST['password'];
    $confirm = $_POST['pass_confirm'];
    $email = $_POST['user_email'];
    $message = add_new_user($username, $password, $confirm, $email);

    I tried to add an additional label:

    <label>How’d you hear about us: * </label>
    <fieldset><input type=”text” class=”text”

    but what would I put here?:

    name=”[ ? ]” id=”[ ? ]” value=”[ ? ]” /></fieldset>

    esterndesign

    Hi,

    1. You should defined the input like you were talking about above to capture the info so you need to create a unique name id and value like:

    <input type="text" class=”text” name=”heard_about” id=”heard_about” />
    

    2. You need to grab the post value when the form is submitted so you need to set a var in the top of the page in the function you defined above for <?php if ( $_POST[‘signup_post’] == ‘1’) {

    $heard_about = $_POST['heard_about'];
    

    3. You need to pass this to the add_new_user() function so it can be processed:

    $message = add_new_user($username, $password, $confirm, $email, $heard_about);
    

    4. Then in functions.php where the function is defined you need to receive the value in the function definition.

    function add_new_user($username, $password, $confirm, $email, $heard_about) {
    

    5. Then you need to process and define this value for this new user if it is valid.

    Validate:
    $heard_about_stripped = strip_tags($heard_about);
    
    if(isEmptyString($heard_about_stripped)) return new WP_Error('forgot_username', 'Please Tell us about how your heard about us');
    
    Add meta value to user
    update_usermeta( $user_id, 'how_user_heard_about', $heard_about_stripped);
    

    That should get the value stored but then you will need to be able to get the data so you could either go into the db and parse out those fields or you could write a page that would grab all users and show this meta value. I would suggest that this might be an admin only page or something along those lines.

    Hope that this helps you in the right direction.

    Hi,

    1) I purchased this theme about 1.5 years back. When i came back on this forum, came to know there is an update. But when i try to update the theme, Destination folder already exists. Theme install failed appears. Can you please help in updating the theme without deleting the data

    2) The reason for coming back was i am getting lot of spam. Akismet is not able to filter out the bogus posts which gets posted. I get lot of posts in a day time and actually manually delete all these posts. I tried using verious captcha plugins but none seems to work on sign up page and ask a guestion page. Can you please help me in resolving this issue.

    Hi,

    1.) It should be pretty seamless to update the files. If you had made any changes you will need to make sure that you do that to the pages. There are not been many changes to this theme over the 1.5 years that you bought it. Let me know if you have any other questions let me know.

    2.) Sorry to hear about your spam woes… You can add captcha to the forms to help keep that down.

    Hi,

    Were you able to complete all of the required pages and settings that were outlined in the installation file that came with the theme zip file?
