Hello Everyone,

This time it took more time to release AnsPress. I wasn’t able to work due to my personal problems. Thanks for your understanding.

[Bug Reporting]
If I make a question with some category, there is the question which I have make when I search other category in question list page.
But! If I change my browser ( Chrome -> Safari ), There is no the question when I search other category.

Is this a session problem?

If you posted without logging in and question status is “moderate” or “private” then yes you’ll not be able to see it in other browser. Its because of AnsPress session.

Thank you for your reply,

Here is a scenario.

1. Login as a default user
2. Ask a question with some category( like… computer science )
3. search questions by category( like, music )
4. there is the question which I ask right before in very first position!
5. I checked the query string
– SELECT ….. OR ( wp_posts.post_author = 1
AND wp_posts.post_status IN (‘publish’, ‘private_post’, ‘trash’, ‘moderate’)
) )
OR ( wp_posts.ID IN (1402)

1402 -> the question in computer science category

6. open safari and enter my site
7. of course, there is the question which I asked right before.
8. search by category ( music ) again
9. of course, the question in computer science is not shown.

Is this a default session setting? or did I something wrong?

Check please!

Please create a new question for this issue. I will check your issue.


Thank you for plugin.
i think new update to v.4.1.8 disables site if either Tags for Anspress or Categories for Anspress are active.
Could be just my site (network/multisite) local.

@Rahul Aryan if you need, i can give you admin and user account on my website to demonstrate the error

Just tried it on demo and localhost and working as expected.

can i restore anspress setting to default?

Yes you can. add this code to functions.php and remove it again once you have refreshed the page.

delete_option( ‘anspress_opt’ );
delete_option( ‘anspress_reputation_events’ );
delete_option( ‘anspress_addons’ );


in lib/form/class-editor.php

$settings = array(
      'textarea_rows' => 10,
      'tinymce' => array(
        'content_css' => ap_get_theme_url( 'css/editor.css' ),
        'wp_autoresize_on' => true,
        'statusbar' => false,
        'codesample' => true,
        'anspress' => true,
        'toolbar1' => 'bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,bullist,numlist,link,unlink,blockquote,fullscreen,apmedia,apcode',
        'toolbar2' => '',
        'toolbar3' => '',
        'toolbar4' => '',
      'quicktags' => false,
      'media_buttons' => false,
      'textarea_name' => $this->field_name,
 $editor_args = wp_parse_args( $this->get( 'editor_args' ), $settings );

I think it is not good to settle the ‘toolbar1’ buttons because other Editor Plugin not works. Your settings override other plugins button setting.
How about just use ‘mce_buttons’ hook?
wp-editor will merge your setting with other settings.
Now I’m using like this

function alp_remove_anspress_editor_buttons( $editor_args ) {
 return $editor_args;
add_filter( 'ap_pre_editor_settings', 'alp_remove_anspress_editor_buttons' );
 function alp_add_anspress_default_editor_buttons( $buttons ) {
 $anspress_defualt_buttons = array( 
  'bold', 'italic', 'underline', 'strikethrough', 'bullist', 'numlist', 'link', 'unlink', 'blockquote', 'fullscreen', 'apmedia', 'apcode' );
 array_merge( $buttons, $anspress_defualt_buttons );
 return $buttons;
add_filter( 'mce_buttons', 'alp_add_anspress_default_editor_buttons', 1000, 1 );

Check this please.

That is is being done intentionally. This helps output controlled buttons to public users but if you want more buttons in tinymce you can override option using our hook.


Sorry, the recount still does not work for me:

HI Rahul,

There are two really similar Translation fields, please check:

From my understand, they are actually same,  should they be one?

Answered question

Hi Rahul,
I disabled Reputation Add-on, but everytime I reactivated Anspress, the Reputation addon will be automatically activated.

Hello Alex,
Yes, reputation and email addons are always enabled by default on activation.
