Hello Rolo !
Thanks for writing us!
1. Attachment: we will discuss about it and support in in the next version.
2. Image: We do have it. The DW Q&A plugin allows uploading an image to a question. You can click the Insert/ edit image on the MceToolbar.
See the screenshot:

Hello, the plugin is great. However I installed Sticky Editor, but the image upload button does not show. Here is my website http://www.dpapazov.com, and here is where the plugin is installed: http://www.dpapazov.com/ can you please advice what might be the problem.

Dear @rolo,
 
To enable image attachment in version 1.2.0 kinldy go to actions.php in:  /wp-content/plugins/dw-question-answer/inc
 
and find following line of code: 
‘media_buttons’ => false,
replace it with 
‘media_buttons’ => true,
 
You will have enabled the option to add media attachments to your dwqa. But its not advisable due to security reasons, unless you have a specific requirement.
 
Hope this helps! Cheers!

Thanks for the input however that didn’t help. What ever it did rendered it useless, but hey we’re getting closer.

Hi Dom,

Thanks for the feedback!

I know its not the perfect solution, but in some situations it can be useful, such as uploading question and answers from other platfors and needing to add images in answers as admin because so far you cant edit answers from the backend!

I think it would require some programming done to allow the function to only upload rather then enabling the whole WP inter media dialogue.

I wish I had the programming knowledge to implement the solution, but we are all on the lookout and soon there should be a solution.

Regards,

Guru

I know what you want. However, currently our plugin just supported to allow admin possible to use the Media button.

You can try to add the following code to the functions.php file

if ( current_user_can('contributor') && !current_user_can('upload_files') )
    add_action('admin_init', 'allow_contributor_uploads');
function allow_contributor_uploads() {
    $contributor = get_role('contributor');
    $contributor->add_cap('upload_files');
}

Or

if ( is_user_logged_in() && !current_user_can('upload_files') ) {
       add_action('init', 'allow_user_uploads');
   function allow_user_uploads() {
       $users = get_users();
       foreach ( $users  as $user ) {
           $user->add_cap('upload_files');
       }
   }
}

Hope this helps !

It is incredible that the best Q&A plugin doesn´t allow attachments and image upload (from editor buttons…just click and go!)

What do you think?

dominic Staff
replied 4 years ago

It’s old version of DW Q&A. Currently, the DW Q&A have supported to allow insert a image link to the question or answer.

Insert image URL is very annoying…
Most of us have images saved on our local PCs…
Why don´t you allow upload image form local PC?
😉

Dominic Staff

Because, some issue about security, Hacker can upload the virut. If you want to allow upload image form local, we are ready to help you as a custom work with a charge of fee 🙂

How do I get more info on the fee for this? URL’s for images are really frustrating.

Dominic Staff

Yes, I know your feel while using the URL for images. If you want to allow upload image from local, we are ready to help you as a custom work with a charge of fee (about $30). We will create plugin compatible with the DW Q&A and help you resolve this issue. If you agree, you can send me username & password of your site fỏ further checking.

Hello @Dominic…

I think that image upload from local and the option to upload attachments are two big main features missing…
90% of users usually have their images in local pc and using URL to paste images is ver annoying…
90% of users usually need to upload files (word, excel, pdf, zip, rar)…but the can´t
I don´t know why DesignWall defers adding those features…They are so important!
If you add those features you will beat all other Q&A and Forum software out there!

Meanwhile, how much can it cost me to have those 2 features added as a custom work?

Thank you very much! 😉
