Hi, I really want them to be able to upload screenshots or pictures to the questions. I understand that this feature is not on the roadmap for a future release. Would you suggest how to do the additional coding?

Thank you!

esterndesign

You could strip out the parts that scrub the code and add a tiny mce editor to the text areas.

There are security issues with this but this is how you could achieve this.

Regards.

I just bought the theme and I must say that it is really awesome. Easy to use, mobile friendly and professional.

May i check, how do I add the option in for my user to add picture, bold/underline the words or add hyper link?

I saw this website that is able to do it when you click on “add a question”. http://muskelfrage.net/

See, the options are available. But not for the original template.

esterndesign

Hi,

Adding pictures is not available and is a bit of work that is not part of the standard support for this theme.

bold, underline and links will work in answers. Same with italics p tags and br tags.

Hi Estern, the question is: How to do add bold, underline and links? Could you advise?

Thanks you

esterndesign
Just do the standard html tags for these.
<b>bold text</b>
Etc

Hi, is this work on wordpress 3.8.3? please advise, thank you!

esterndesign

Hi,

Yes this works just fine with 3.8.3 and now 3.9 that was just announced.

great! I’m buying this now!

Hello,

would it be a difficult modification to change the length of the excerpt? For example for it to include the question description underneath the title? Or even the first answer..

Thanks for your advice.

esterndesign

Hi,

You could use the the_excerpt() function that is built in. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

You can use this anywhere in the post loops which are used throughout the theme.

Regards, -esterndesign

I’m thinking to buy this theme but I can I use it with another magazine theme?

esterndesign

Not sure what you mean exactly. This is its own theme and is not a child theme. You could style it to suit your needs.

Hi, first of all: Greate Theme! But….

1. On User Profile Page it shows just the last 10 answers of the user.

2. Is it possible that visitors can comment without registration. Because if they have to register just to answer they dont do it. If user can comment without reg. you get much more visitors who answer questions.

Regards Ideecon

esterndesign

Hi.

1. This pulls from the posts per page value that is set in wp Amin. You could change the query pull count on the archive.php page where the profile stuff lives.

2. At this time to safely and securely save content users must be registered to post any way.

Thanks, but in wordpress i can change the comment settings to comment without registration but with no effect. Is there no way to change code just to “comment” without registration?

esterndesign

This uses some custom functions to enhance the items associated to the user and post values.

You would need to rewrite a ton of code and not a simple update.

This is not like a standard blog theme.

Hope this helps clarify the answer a bit more.

Hi, I am so great that I found this theme what I really need now. But I need a ‘payment’ plug-in to charge the fee to each level members. If you can treat that on this theme Please let me know about the charge. Or if you can not treat that by your self, just advice to me kindly what kind of plug-in is suitable? Thanks.

esterndesign

Hi.

At this time this feature is not part of the theme. If you desired this enhancement then you would need to find a plugin or even a developer that could assist you in the enhancement.

I am not available to add this feature and doesn’t fall under standard theme support.

Regards. Esterndesign

Hi , i want to know the theme , is it support in Chinese(BIG5) Thanks a lot

esterndesign

You can translate this theme to suit you needs. I don’t have any experience with big5 Chinese but you could try the demo site to see how tge functionality might behave. The translations should be straight forward for the the theme items.

Regards Esterndesign

When writing a question with a apostrophe it automatically adds a \ before it on the next page.

Example try to ask question starting with “won’t”

Please let me know if you have a way to patch this bug which I am sure is to prevent mysql injections. (happy with that prevention but hoping to fix the bug)

I also have just noticed another bug sadly.. Try submitting a question with any html scripting in it and its not prevented.. example

Make the question ”<b>Testing”

This will break the breadcrumbs as the bold tag isn’t closed… this means injection is possible and makes this entire theme vulnerable.

Has this been fixed in a recent update that I’m not yet aware of ?

esterndesign

I will look into these two items this weekend

Can you please suggest a better way to control automatic registration – at the moment spam registration is going on my site and nothing I can do about it because of the registration process.

Also, is there a way to edit/add fields to existing registration fields? How do I remove members (spam) currently showing on my homepage as New Members or that show on the Leaderboard?

esterndesign

Are you using the captcha support option?

Adding custom items would be done in code.

drjohndimi

I don’t think captcha support is provided in this theme – where do I find it on your theme….if not on your theme, is there a way of including it as well as the code you mentioned because I’m new to WP. Thanks.

esterndesign

If you register with recaptcha you can get a key. Enter this key in the theme admin menu and then activate it where you want with the couple options.

Hi. I have just bought this theme and so far its great. One question. Is it possible to display only the experts on the leaderboard?

esterndesign

Out of the box no. But you could throw another if check around the users that are shown to check for expert status.

Installed the theme, went to the home page, click to generate pages but it did not. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the theme twice but each time the generate pages does not appear, so I cannot get the pages to generated. Any ideas?

esterndesign

Have you set your permalink structure?

Hi Esterdesign

I purchased the User Pro and would like this plugin to handle the registration process, how easy it would be to implement to this theme?

Regards, Ngoc

esterndesign

Hi. I am not familiar with this add on. It would be a custom pairing that you would need to code. My guess is that they won’t work out of the box together due to they both have custom account create actions.

Great theme, two quick questions if you wouldn’t mind

1) How can i remove the black banner bars at the top and bottom?

2) How can i change the yellow tint on boxes (such as the ask a question box) to be a tint of blue instead?

thank you

esterndesign

These both can be done with some basic css changes or overrides:

1. Top Banner: .topBannerWrapper {display:none;}

Not sure which both black banner you mean… If it is the footer it would be: .footer {display:none;}

2. The welcome box has a bg color of: #eeead5, if you wanted a light blue you could change it to something like: #e1eff6.

Basically you can go into the styles and change any of these colors to suit your needs. If you use the browser’s inspect tool and find the classes you want to target.

Hope this helps out.

To the author and others users regarding spam: I noticed I was still having spam problems even with recaptcha on the signup form setup. I discovered spam bots could still “register” via the wordpress registration url: wp-login.php?action=register

Installing the “stop spam” plugin stopped that however: https://wordpress.org/plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/

It’s free so I highly recommend it and solved the issues.

esterndesign

Thanks for the insight on helping to combat spam beyond the built in features.

I try to make things extendable for each user so if they do need that extra support for combatting spam and bots they can via plugins. Plugins are great for niche requests for the most part.

Regards, -esterndesign

Default-user

Yes it’s a great theme. Thanks!

Is there a way to place the “points key” on the sidebar? such as using an html link in a html/texbox widget?

I don’t have room on my main nav: http://syncpedia.com/device-answers/

Also is there a way to remove “home” from the footer menu? I didn’t include it in my footer menu, it just automatically gets added. I’m assuming it’s in a template file somewhere.

Thanks

esterndesign

Hi,

There is no widget that comes with this but it might be a good idea to create one at some point. You could just create a simple html box for over there with the source code pasted in..

If you edit the footer.php page you can remove the links you don’t want that are beyond the ones added via the wp menus section of the site.

Regards, esterndesign

What are the “membership features”? Is it possible to pay per question or create a membership for a reoccurring fee to ask unlimited questions? How about using PayPal Adaptive to split payments with contributors?

esterndesign

At this time there are no options for a paid subscription based theme.

Hi, I am really liking your theme and was hoping to thoroughy test it. So for the demo website, I am unable to register a Login so, can you send me a demo login that I can use so that I can test it. I also need to integrate Paypal payment for asking the Questions, can it be incorporated as an extra Step/ Page in the theme. Please let me know. Thank you.

esterndesign

Hi,

Demo login is only available and is u: demoUser p: demoUser10

You would need to enhance the theme on your own to get it to do Paypal as a question system. That is beyond the support that comes with the theme.

Regards, -esterndesign

Can questions be hidden until it is approved by the admin?

esterndesign

At this point no but you can get alerted to new questions and answers as an admin when they happen.
