Is is possible to force people to login before posting a question? At the moment I just get a message “You do not have permission to submit a question” and if I add a link to the login page they are then redirected to the home page AND the link still appears when they are logged in.

Help please

At the moment, we have disable temporary this option to improve and update the plugin.
If you want to have it, you can open the archive-question.php file then add the following code under line 30:

 <?php if ( ! dwqa_current_user_can( 'post_question' ) ) {

 echo '<div class="alert">'.__('You do not have permission to Ask Questions','dwqa').'</div>';


 if( is_user_logged_in() ) {

 global $dwqa_options;

 if( isset($dwqa_options['pages']['submit-question']) ) {

 $submit_link = get_permalink( $dwqa_options['pages']['submit-question'] );

 if( $submit_link ) {

 _e('You can ask question <a href="'.$submit_link.'">here</a>', 'dwqa' );



 } else {

 _e('Please <a href="'.wp_login_url( get_post_type_archive_link( 'dwqa-question' ) ).'">Login</a>', 'dwqa' );

 $register_link = wp_register('', '',false);

 if( ! empty($register_link) && $register_link ) {

 echo __(' or','dwqa').' '.$register_link;


 _e(' to submit question.','dwqa');



 echo '</p>';
