Hello,
I’ve been working on adding a feature where an anonymous user can submit a question with a name. I’m not done with the implementation, but I would like to get submit this as a possible feature and see if DW would be interested in letting me commit this feature.
 
Best Regards,
Joshua

Hello… I haven’t received an answer on this so I’m curious to know if it has been seen yet. I would like to send DW a diff of some features that I think DW should have. I’m not looking for money or anything like that. I just feel like I should share my code. Open source is the best way.

You should definitely mention your contribution request to @Dominic hope designwall finds this usefull but if anonymous users start asking questions using a name then how are you going to differentiate between the registered users and anonymous users ii think everyone in that case would like to stay anonymous without registration

Hi Joshua @metrocitizen,
Sorry I didnt see your question earlier, my bad.
It’s great that you want to contribute your code to our plugin. Our DW Q&A project is free and it’s open source so we welcome all contributions.
You can contribute your code at our Github project: https://github.com/designwall/dw-question-answer
@wellwisher: you got a point here, Anonymous means no name right? But I think it’s still different from registered users. Anonymous users don’t have to register, they can leave a fake name, for example Mr. M with M for Mistery. This is just for conversation and communication: Hi Mr. M in stead of Hi there.
Anyhow, we will see.
Cheers,

Hey thanks for the reply BigHug. It’s certainly more professional to have a name to a poster. I have some other changes, but I’ll comment which section is for what. I may make a few enhancements before posting, such as text cleansing (filter for html and other no good characters). Anyways, hopefully I’ll be submitting something today for you guys.

Agree Joshua, and it would be great if we can make it as an option, flexible option so users can leave a name or leave it blank (same like our email option).
I look forward to your code 😀
Let me know if you need my help in any way.

Hey BigHug, sorry about the long wait. I had basically resolve firewall vpn issues for the last few days. I’m submitting the code today. Currently, the system forces the user to put in a name if anonymous because my current project does not allow for that kind of anonymity. However, I did include enable, disable options in admin -> dwqa -> settings. So the admin can disable this feature if they so wish to.

I will include some notes of things that may/may not need to be added to make the application more compliant to current form. If it’s a highly requested feature, I will work to include the former request.

Best regards!
