We want to implement DW Q&A for a very specific user case, so we need to add various custom fields to the post a question screen, such as a date picker, text fields, some check boxes etc. Not too many, but we need to be able to filter them in the front end using the Facet WP plugin.
In terms of adding the extra fields we usually use a plugin called Advanced Custom Fields, so that is something we could do quite easily as I believe your plugin uses custom post types for the questions.
But we need to allow these fields to be completed when a user asks a question on the front end.
Is this doable?
We register post type of question for DW Question & Answer under ‘dwqa-question’ custom post type. You can add custom field for this post type. Please refer to this link http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields to see how it works.
Did you manage to add custom fields? How did you do it?
I’d like to add custom fields to the answer form and display these with the answer on the question page. Your experience might help me (and others)
Thanks a lot in advance for sharing! 🙂
PS: Please note that I am currently trying it with the ACF plugin that actually lets me define the fields and add it to dwqa_answer post_type but it doesnt show in the form neither.
