how can you disable ‘mandatory categories’ on the ‘ask question’ page? Want to be able to submit a question without selecting a category?

esterndesign

Responded to this question in your last post. Please see that for detailed information.

how can you disable the ‘add answer’ area under the question? I’m using an alternate comment system. Thanks!

esterndesign

You can probably just comment it out of the code in the php file.

In single.php: you will find a line of code that looks like this:

<div class="answerBar" id="comments">

remove this and all the code all the way down to the line just before this line (which should be a closing php statement):

<pre>
<div class="relatedQuestions">

Leave this like above since it starts the new section for displaying the related questions. 

This will remove the comments label and will also remove the form / login direction from showing up.

Hey Ho, it’s me, Nico from muskelfrage.net

I have one question.

How you can see on the main page of muskelfrage.net I used the ad.field to have a closable box with some news in.

I did this because I dont know how to create an own one for this. The only problem now is that visitors with ad-blockers cant see this div.

Would it be possible for you to create a simple loop that contains an other closable div for new visitors OR is there any way to show that the div is not an ad?

Thanks for your help. And by the way, you should still have my Login-Data you could use to fix it your way than to try to tell me how to code it (:

Regards, Nico

Trying to confirm the action you are trying to add:

1.) Are you trying to move the add a question box that shows up on the home page to the side bar as a widget?

2.) or something else? Can you please elaborate the request..

If so then you would need to create a widget or just add the code to the sidebar in a fixed position.

Yes I would like to have a second question box that (maybe does not show up on the homepage) but on every page and post page in the sidebar – like a widget would do.

But i would be also okay if this question box shows always up in the sidebar.

Here I have an example: Its a german QA-Side with a widget with the same task:

http://www.gutefrage.net/frage/windsurfaudruestung-gesucht

Its the first widget on the right in the sidebar starting with the words: Fragen Sie die Community –anonym und kostenlos!”

Thx

Is there a way to set the comments section above any installed widget? When I install the disqus widget it appears above the comments and I’d like the regular comments to appear above disqus. Thanks!

esterndesign

You would need to find out what wp hook they plugin is tying into and make sure the standard comments show up above this hook.

Is there a way to have categories on the ‘add question’ page be an autocomplete text box?

esterndesign

Anything is possible but this addition is beyond the standard support that i can provide. Feel free to work with a developer to get this added feature set.

There are a couple things that would have have to be done and this is not a simple task since you would need to do ajax completes and a lot more.

Hi!

1. I’d like to be able to embed a youtube video in my answer. Is there a way to do this? I see adding HTML like links work, but the <embed> is stripped out.

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

Thanks!

esterndesign

Hi,

1.) Out of the box the answer is no. You could change the way that the posting is done to allow such tags but this is beyond the standard support that comes with the theme. I will ward some warning that this could pose for some bad code that could end up messing with the experience.

2.) At this time the short answer is no. You would need to do a bit of code manipulation to get this feature working.

Thank you for your questions.

Hello,

On my ask a question page, the tag and category text is showing up incorrectly. The first letter shows right after the input field and then on the next line ie: c ategory

please see http://eigox.com/ask-a-question/ Any ideas how I could fix this? The text is in Japanese btw.

Thank you

esterndesign

Hi,

Not quite sure what the issue is that you are seeing but the label for the category is being displayed as designed.

Can you elaborate more on the issue you are seeing?

How do I remove the Categories drop down from the main menu bar?

Default-user

Thanks! how do you delete the space on the right where the categories drop down was? There’s still an empty space there before the buttons on the menu begin.

Default-user

In different sized browsers the blank space on the menu disappears. It appears as if the blank space is caused by the menu items not completely filling the menu. Is there away that the buttons can be laid out to completely fill the menu?

esterndesign

There is a fixed max-width on the nav part and since you removed the categories drop-down then you need to change the width to be bigger to suit this need. This can be done by you diving into the CSS to adjust.

How can I change the categories drop down in the menu to show tags instead of categories?

esterndesign

Hi,

You would need to do some modifications of the data that is being shown which is found in header.php file.

You could use a version of this wp function to get the keywords to show there. Just need to see how it outputs and how it works with the current styles.

When I enable the ‘Comments Evolved’ plugin or any similar plugin that allows the display of fb and disqus comments, the wp comments and the comment form from your template displays below it. Is there a way to get the answer question box from your template to display above it? What would be the reason for this? Thanks!

esterndesign

Hi,

I think this has to do with the plugin targeting the post item hook which would come before the comments.

Typically you would want to only have 1 commenting system so that is why this is working out this way for you with the Theme comment box happening after.

If another plugin uses the template for wp comments from your theme, the question box is hidden and one has to click on ‘add a comment’ to open it, is there a way to start with it default open so a user doesn’t have to click ‘add a comment’ to open it?

esterndesign

I am not sure i follow the question.

Not all plugins will be completely compatible with what you are looking for.

Sorry for any inconveniences it is very hard to support all plugins.

I tried to add a search box to the nav menu using this: http://www.paulund.co.uk/add-search-form-to-a-wordpress-menu

Is there any reason why it wouldn’t work?

esterndesign

Hi,

I have not experienced or worked with this plugin before so i am not sure why it would not work for you.

Again, all plugins might not work for every theme.

Changed the default avatar by just uploading a new avatar in it’s place with the same name but it shows my old one. I tried refreshing cache and deleting all files cached on the server. When I go to view image url, why does it give me the url of the image hosted on wp? http://i2.wp.com/mysite.com/misc/themes/robust-qa/images/default-user-avatar-1.jpg ?
esterndesign

Hi,

This is how Gravatar has started to store their images.

I have noticed that the akami type server that they are using takes a while to refresh.

If you use the upload it will store the images locally and not on the wp.com server.

You could just rename the image that you uploaded to something that was not the same and you should be fine.

Hi! I have a question before I purchase. Can I localize “instant-Q&A” or “robust Q&A” in Japanese? Both of them are OK? Or neither? (If necessary, I can return my localized code to you.)

“instant-Q&A” and “robust Q&A” have so nice design and features. I want to use either-or for my client.

I’m waiting for your reply. Thanks!

Default-user

Sorry description is not enough… My question is whether it is possible in license. I work for software development company in Japan. I’m going to use “instant-Q&A” or “robust Q&A” for our client.

And do I need to pay additional costs to you if i localize it? Thanks.

Default-user

Sorry again. I found an answer for my quetion.I want to close my questiion.Thank you so much.This theme is so cool!

Is there a way to add a captcha to the comment form? I tried to use a captcha plugin but it doesn’t show up on the comment form.

esterndesign

From what i have seen you need to manually add the code into the theme pages where you want it to show up. I would look to the plugins help and install page for the manual code snippit.

There is a problem with apostrophe symbol on the question title. The system automatically formats it with \’ . I checked the html meta data and it is set to UTF-8, I also tried to edit server setting to disable magic quotes, but problem persists.

How can this be fixed so apostrophe ’ is allowed?

esterndesign

Hmm not sure what is going on here but i can test and get back to you with an answer when i get some time.

esterndesign

Hi,

I looked into this issue and i am unable to reproduce the issue that you are having here.

I tried to add a new question with the ’ in the title and it works just fine. I also test the validation points to see if they were not being added in correctly but they are fine as well.

Can you provide any other details to the flow that you got to get the ’ issue?

Hi There,

The page numbers at the bottom of the page don’t show up when there are more than 10 posts under a particular tag. All I see is a blank grey button. If I click on a category and there are 10 or more posts, I see “View More Questions” written on that button but for viewing a tag name if there are 10 or more posts, the button is completely blank without ‘view more questions’. How can this be fixed???

Thanks

esterndesign

Hi,

I will have to look into this and i will get back to you when i can.

Hi,

You are correct there is a minor bug here that the button for page two of tag questions is not showing the copy. I will be posting the updated to TF as soon as i can.

Thank you for pointing this out and improving this theme!

Hi- I just bought Robust Q&A.

I am trying to get my logo up. Other themes I have used have allowed the logo to be uploaded from the WP- admin.

Do I need to FTP the logo or is there another way to upload my logo?

It would be great if you could layout the steps.

Thanks, Nik

esterndesign

Hi,

In the theme admin menu that shows up on the left, there is an input to paste a url of your logo. You can upload the logo via the media uploader like you would when adding an image that you might use in a post.

Hope that this helps you out.

is there any way to upload image and add video to comments ? want to make an knowledge ask question site …

esterndesign

Hi,

At this point out of the box the theme will only support text based content. There are some security risks with allowing this content at this point.

Sorry that this feature is not present in this theme. I dont plan on supporting this feature in the future.
