I’d like for a user to ask a question and as soon as they submit, they’d be redirected to a different custom page. Is there any way to do that?

Dear chiara Mazzucco,

To redirect users to a different page when user submit a question, please open the actions.php file in the folder path "wp-content -> plugins -> dw-question-answer -> inc -> actions.php".
Find the line code around line 511:

exit( wp_safe_redirect( get_permalink( $new_question ) ) );

Then replace with the following code to redirect to home page:

exit( wp_safe_redirect( home_url() ) );

Notice: you can use similar to redirect user to any other page as you wish (in your case to the question listing page)

Eg: like this is my url : http://mysite/discussion-forum/
exit( wp_safe_redirect( home_url() .'discussion-forum/' ) );

Hope this helps !
Best Regards,

I can’t find action.php in that folder. Could it be that the file has been renamed?

In the latest version, we have some change in the layout and add some new files. To resolve this issue, you can open the Handle.php file in the Inc folder and find around line 480 to line 500 the following code:

exit( wp_safe_redirect( get_permalink( $new_question ) ) );

Hey I changed the code in handle.php like the example you gave but it still doesn’t work. Here is what I replaced it with:
exit( wp_safe_redirect( home_url() .’/thanks-asking-question/’ ) );

I would like to do the same but the example isn’t working for me either.

exit( wp_safe_redirect( home_url() .’thank-you-for-submitting-an-idea/’ ) );

Actually I came up with a solution to my question …
I didn’t notice that this message appeared on the page after the question is submitted “Your question is waiting moderator.”

I just made the message more visible by adding this css to my child theme:
p.dwqa-alert.dwqa-alert-success { font-size: 2em; color: #0093d1;}

and changing the message in the Handle.php file in the Inc folder (as above):

Thank you for submitting a question.
Your question is now awaiting moderator approval.
