This seems pretty necessary but I can’t find any documentation on how to load each users activity into their own profile. I think you guys do a fantastic job at it on your website (designwall.com) and I would love to emulate that ability.
 
Thanks for your help

Looks like I spoke too soon, it looks like you guys are releasing this ability in the next update. http://designwall.com/question/create-an-user-profile-page/
Any idea when that will be?

Thanx @bphippen for the question.

Dear @Dominic,

Could you possibly give a rough time frame, as to when the next release will be. As this is functionality many of us looking for. So the sooner the better.

Hi guys, 
We will add the profile page feature for the plugin and release it in version 1.2 around beginning of Mar.

Tried to post a reply to one of the answers but not working on the iPad.
Anyway, I would love this feature too as it’s really important to keep the general public away from the back end of WP at all times! 😉 
The user experience on your own site in terms of registering and logging in would be great too.
But, I feel these features (and others) should be sold as a premium version, and I would have no hesitation buying it.

I have been using a plugin called “User Profiles Made Easy”. Any chance for integration with this? If not can we use a shortcode (or does one exist) to display a users questions and answers on the same page?

Currently, Our DW Q&A plugin does not yet support to use the “User Profiles Made Easy” plugin. However, you can create a user profile as our designwall.com site.  You can install the buddypress plugin.
Step 1: Install BuddyPress plugin.
Step 2: Go to your theme folder (wp-content/themes/[theme-name]), and create a new folder, name it “buddypress”. Inside your new folder, create a new file: “bp-custom.php”
 
Step3: Now, open up the new file in notepad or any code editor, and copy/paste the following code:

<?php
if ( !function_exists('dwqa_plugin_init') ) {
  return;
}
/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
/*  Setup Questions in BuddyPress User Profile
/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
add_action( 'bp_setup_nav', 'dw_simplex_bp_nav_adder' );

      'name' => __('Questions', 'dw-simplex'),
      'slug' => 'questions',
      'position' => 21,
      'show_for_displayed_user' => true,
      'screen_function' => 'questions_list',
      'item_css_id' => 'questions',
      'default_subnav_slug' => 'public'
    ));
}

function questions_list() {
  add_action( 'bp_template_content', 'profile_questions_loop' );
  bp_core_load_template( apply_filters( 'bp_core_template_plugin', 'members/single/plugins' ) );
}

function profile_questions_loop() {
  global $dwqa_options;
  $submit_question_link = get_permalink( $dwqa_options['pages']['submit-question'] );

  $questions = get_posts(  array(
    'posts_per_page' => -1,
    'author'         => bp_displayed_user_id(),
    'post_type'      => 'dwqa-question'
  ));
  if( ! empty($questions) ) { ?>

    <?php else : ?>
      <?php bp_displayed_user_fullname(); ?> has not asked any question.

Note: Please change ‘dw_simplex’ & ‘dw-simplex’ to your theme name Step 3: Open the function file of your theme (wp-content/themes/[theme-name]/functions.php), and add this code in (somewhere at top of the file):

include_once get_template_directory().'/buddypress/bp-custom.php';

Final step: Save the files and go to your profile page to see list of all questions on the new Questions tab. Please try and let us know the results!
Hope this helps !
