I have tried to upload my theme and it says the stylesheet is missing. Please help me resolve this issue.
This is probably because you are trying to upload the zip file and not the theme folder that is found in the zip. Once you unzip you can upload the theme folder called instant-qa found in the Theme folder.
You should also review the Installation file that is in the zip folder for proper theme setup.
Let me know if you have issues after this.
It worked thanks. I will let you know if I have any other questions.
I have a few other questions can we chat via skype? If so pm me your skype user
Hi I am sorry to say i am not on skype. If you have other questions please feel free to ask here or send a message via my profile page here on TF.
Esterndesign, I have a question for you. My site is www.businessforsale.ws. Its a site where people can list or find businesses for sale. My question is I dont have an idea what to do with the star rating and I dont want to take the time to remove it. Do you have any ideas? Please assist.
It sounds like your business model is different from the q&a model this theme was created for. So if i this was my site then i would proceed to remove the star rating system since there is not much social engagement from having it and it could be confusing what its use.
It should be pretty straight forward to remove this functionality. You could just remove the site side values that get displayed and the posting mechanisms could still remain in the database.
Hope this helps.
Is it possible I can get you to do it for me I dont want to mess anything up. I think I have completed everything else.
Please message me via my profile here on TF. I will try my best to help out.
If someone wanted to remove their question do they have that option in their log in section?
No only admins can manage questions and answers. They would need to contact an admin to have their question removed.
I fancy getting this theme, it looks good but I have 2 questions. first, what plugin are you using for social bookmark? do you know if there is other social share plugin that works with your theme? also, can we actually work out ads inside questions (post?) so I can use the actual spaces for sponsored ads.
- Most plugins will work and almost all social add-on plugins will work. I have tested a few.
- I have seen a few people add in a google ad tag for the single.php page which would add in an inline ad unit to every question page. Just keep in mind that you can only do 3 google ad on 1 page (google’s rules)
As for adding them individually that would be much harder to do.
Yes I am ok, what I though is just 2 google ads around the question and that’s it, the 4 spots available that you said are available would be for external sponsors.
by the way, will you keep that theme updated?
Yes i keep this theme up to date. Since launch there have only been a few minor tweaks.
any plans on making it responsive?
That is a good idea. I have not planned to go fluid but it is something that i could think about doing for a future release.
Have a good one.
How to display the comment box? Linked from the “Answer this Question” link?
My comment box doesn’t display.
The comment box will only show up for users that are logged in. Clicking Answer this Question is just a quick on page link that brings you to that section of the page. If you were logged out it would still bring you to that section but it would prompt you to login or signup to proceed.
Will this theme works on latest wp? version 3.3.1 that is?
Yes, this works with 3.3.1. Each time a new release is done i verify that the theme is still working good.
I understand what you mean. But I mean how to set up, how to let the comment box display when users are already logged in?
My problem is that: whatever I did, it doesn’t work whether the user is logged in. There is no “Answer this Question” link displayed to let the user to add comment.
Do you have any tutorial or instruction?
Well it is hard to tell what you may have done to modify the site where it will not show the comments box. I would back-track through your additions that you made and pin-point the part that is causing this issue. The comment box DOES work out of the box with this theme.
Make sure you check any plugins that could be doing something to the comments box.
If you are still having issues please message me via my profile page with a URL to your site and possibly an admin account so i can see what might be the issue.
Let me know if you have any questions.
dear esterdesign team, you are so helpful and so warm to give me every little help!
Thank you so much!
No problem. Glad to help.
Is it possible to allow users to post comments on pages – similar to typical wordpress themes where visitors can leave comments on posts as well as pages. I have created a couple of pages on my website and would like to have a normal “Leave a Comment” feature at the end of these pages.
If this not possible, is there an alternate way through which I can allow users to leave comments on pages.
You should be able to reuse the comments form for these pages if you want. I have not tested this but logically it makes sense. You may have to modify the function (duplicate it) because there are point allocations in the current function.
Hope this is helpful.
I have updated the wordpress to recent version 3.3.1, category url and posturl are not working. Actually i am using / category / postname / as post permalink. In the old version of wordpress, it works well. Not in wp v3.3.1
When i keep the permalink structure as / postname / it works. not with / category / postname /
Shall i know is there any compatibility issue in wp version 3.3.1 ?
Do you have your permalink set this exact way:
/ category / postname /
Sorry the code way should be:
TF stripped out the %’s
I did found the issue already, The problem due to super-cache plugin files. I did resolved the issue.
Thanks for your heads-up
Ok great. I am glad that you located your problem and fixed.
Have a good day.
I haven’t purchased this theme yet, but will do if doing the following is easy enough:
Change the ‘Recent Questions’ text to: ‘Recent Rumours’.
Change ‘Popular Questions’ text to: ‘Recent Rumours’
Change ‘Answer #1’ to ‘Comment #1’.
Does the theme options when installed allow for terminology to be changed to suit, or does this require me to go into the theme files?
Thanks in anticipation.
Thanks for the questions.
If you want to customize the theme’s text you can easily go into the few pages and edit the text. There isnt a global type change. There are only a few places that you would need to change.
is it possible to add a 728×90 banner above the mainmenu?
I would say adding it to the top of the page would be an easier feat. You will have a hard time with the exact placement that you are recommending with that banner size.
I have updated my wordpress to 3.3.1 and have Instant QA – WPQA 1 .0 when i do / category / postname / it wont work only 404 errors. is there a update for this template so it works whit 3.3.1? I have used the default template of WP 3 .3.1 and that one works….
/ % postname % / works but on the categories i stil get a 404 error.
should / % category % / % postname % / ( without the spaces ) work?
I dont have any plugins enabled.
It worked fine until i updated WP tot version 3.3.1
I have fully tested this theme with 3.3.1 and it is working just fine. If you want to send me a admin login (via email from my profile page) to your site i can see if you have your permalink setup correctly.
Is it possible to add the ability to charge a fee for posting questions? Do you know of any plugins that could do this easily? Basically what I’m looking for is a way to have the ability to let the person posting the question choose the fee from a dropdown for between say $1 – $5. Is this possible and do you think this is something you could add in an update?
I dont know of any plugins that would do that at this point. You may want to research them on wordpress.org.
To add this type of function would be a lot of work and may be something that gets added to the theme at some point, but as of right now it will not have this feature.
Thanks for the question.
when will new color schemes be available?
Currently there are 3 color schemes to choose from. There may be some more colors that could be done at a later point but for now it is just the three out of the box.
You can of course customize this yourself by duplicating the current ones or overwriting one with a new color scheme. There is a PSD included that can help you customize your theme. Or you can take the images from one and change them in Photoshop.
On my tag page the refering post aren’t showing. http://www.blackhairanswers.com/ if you click on any tags no articles are showing. Also is it possible when someone post a question that they can use tags. Lastly how do I move the sponsor ad to the top?
You are using the older version of the theme that did not support tags. About a year ago there was an update that added tag support. I would upgrade the theme by re-downloading from TF. It looks like you have not done that many mods so just updating should fix the tag support.
