Where the admins/moderators can approve all questions and answers before posting?   Would be a great help.

Hi John, 
In order to have all questions and answers verified by Admin before uploading, we need to modify the code a bit:
For Question: open file: “actions.php” in folder: /wp-content/plugins/dw-question-answer/inc/ and look for:

 $post_status = ( isset($_POST['private-message']) && $_POST['private-message'] ) ? 'private' : 'publish';

Change it into:

 $post_status = ( isset($_POST['private-message']) && $_POST['private-message'] ) ? 'private' : 'pending';

For answer: open file: “template-functions.php” in folder: /wp-content/plugins/dw-question-answer/inc/  and look for:

 'post_status' => 'publish'

 Change into:

 'post_status' => 'pending'

Now every time a question/answer posted, you can go to back-end and approve it.

Sorry for the delay in response. We did this. However, the pending answer is still shown on the post. In the backend, when we approve, We are not allowed to change the status to “answered”. The closed we could use was “resolved”. This changed the status, the answer is still shown, but the “status box” does not update to show “1” in answer. Please see: as an example.
Can you assist? Did we do something incorrectly?

Hi @bogart99j

A slightly off topic request. I just noticed that you have been able to apply a number of modifications to the standard DWQA plugin.

I am desperately looking for the second dropdown which in your case is a subcategory implementation here: Would be kind enough to share with every one how you achieved this!

Best regards

One of our contract programmers did the customization. If you’d like I can put him him in touch with you. He did a great job with the pull downs and helped clean up our ability to approve each question and answer … we are planning to go live this weekend with that portion of our site. Do you have any comments or suggestions from your review?

Thank You!
