To display the user profile, you need to use a third party plugin named BuddyPress plugin.
We have written the guideline on how to integrate the BuddyPress plugin with the DW Q&A plugin, please take a look: http://www.designwall.com/guide/dw-question-answer-plugin/#buddypress_integration

Hi Dominic,

I have the same problem. When I clicked the link at the Author’s name of a Question, it took me to the error 404 page. I believe this is because the author did not have any post. Is it possible to disable the hyperlink at the Author’s name?

To resolve this issue, you can open the content-question.php file line 25 and content-single-question.php file line 19.
and reapace with the following code:

  1. content-question.php file line 25
<?php printf( __( '<span class="dwqa-question_author"><a href="%1$s">%2$s%3$s</a> %4$s %5$s ago</span>', 'dwqa' ), dwqa_get_author_link( $user_id ), get_avatar( $user_id, 48 ), get_the_author(), $text, $time ) ?>
  1. content-single-question.php file line 19.
    <?php printf( __( '<span class="dwqa-question-author"><a href="%1$s">%2$s%3$s</a> %4$s asked %5$s ago</span>', 'dwqa' ), dwqa_get_author_link( $user_id ), get_avatar( $user_id, 48 ), get_the_author(),  dwqa_print_user_badge( $user_id ), human_time_diff( get_post_time( 'U' ) ) ) ?>

Then add the ollowing code to the style.css file of your theme:

.dwqa-question_author {

 cursor: default;

 pointer-events: none;


Note: If you do not change again after updating the plugin, go to your theme folder and create a new folder , named it "dwqa-templates" .
Inside your new folder, copy/paste 2 file: content-question.php and content-single-question.php.
Now, open up the new file in notepad or any code editor to change code.
Hope this helps!
