Great news! I didn’t have time to install beta 3: gonna upgrade directly to 4 on my staging environment and report any issue. If I followed well everybody’s various messages, in order to upgrade to beta, I need to remove all the related plugins (main + category), upload the beta and activate it: is that correct?

Thanks. Yes you are right.

So is AskBug updated to work with this or are you suggesting we use a default theme instead?

Both AnsPress stable and Askbug update will release in same day. Working on it.


Clicking on an anonymous user profile throws a 404 error.

Links toย /community/user/0/

Edit: It works when you enable user profile add-on. (link should be removed?)

Edit2: What happened to the user profile page, reputation and hover cards, they where so beautifull?

yesterday my provider update the server to PHP 7.1 and now it is not working anymore

If i go back to 5.6 it is working only that is not the solution for me.
@rahul -> you have the offer for me ?

Hi Rahul,


Do you have an idea of the update of Askbug?

I really look forward to testing the new Anspress ๐Ÿ™‚

commented on answer

Thanks Thierry. Yes almost done. Improving user profile of AskBug.


Allowed anonymous posting, but it still gives login or register prompt, bug?

commented on answer

Cleared cache and all ok.

– Can you hide the login or register box beneath the form?
– The title in the page gets overridden and it stops the Yoast plugin from working.

NO its not a bug. You can hide it by CSS.


I installed the beta 4 and it’s a great improvement.

Any idea when you will push this live?
Want to use it for an upcomming project.

Could you also add a quick option to the backend for selective loading and deqeueing the anspress css?

commented on answer

It will be published this week. That option already exists.

Ok, thanks.

Can we upgrade from 4.0 beta4 to the final release or schould we just wait a few more days to start using it?

Yes you can use now, but make sure to download from GitHub.

FYI: Using Anspress 4.0 beta4 here

How does the translation of the theme works?
Dutch is not included in the preinstalled lanuages.

Thank you for the great work so far Rahul!

If any translation does not exists then simply download poeditor and import existing anspress pot file and edit.


Unfortunately I see my question no longer so secure him only once.

Is it possible that people fill in the form without account and once they form send an account is created.

I think that this conversion will benefit.


I have a 404 onยย (

    Please make sure to check permalink structure and also re-add menu items. As menu links has been improved a lot.

    I update everything and cleaned the cache. The problem is stil there.

commented on answer

Go to anspress options and check permalinks structure and hit save

Also make sure AnsPress is active

I have do that many times.

Maybe i make a account for you ? if you gave me a emailadres.

I found something only i have no solution for it: The ur:

You see the word /lid/ if a change it wit /user/ it wil work.

Now I search in the Dutch translation and can not find (lid). Also i check the plugin options and i can not find it. rewrite not.

I hope you have a idea.

Is send you the inlog.

Hello Rik, there was an issue with AnsPress menu items. I just fixed it. please download fixed version from here:

Yes this is working, Great Job ๐Ÿ™‚

@Rahul, he is not sending the question now with the update


Just installed it and… Woow!! This is a huge step forward and it definitely deserves to be called 4.x!! I agree with Cagliostro and Chad: you’re the best!

Gonna dig into it now but first I have to clean the mess with my CSS: I think I tweaked too many things. ^^;

Just one little thing that I noticed though. In AnsPress Options > Tools > Uninstall, it’s written in red: “If you are unsure about this section please do use any of these options below.” I’m pretty sure you mean: “If you are unsure about this section please do NOT use any of these options below.” Right? ^^;

A huge thanks again!

commented on answer

OH, yep that was a silly mistake. Just fixed it. Thanks


WOOOHOOOOO! Rahul, you’re the best! Congrats on V4.0!

commented on answer

Thanks Chad. ๐Ÿ™‚


Rahul you are the best. Thank you for your work. I don’t know what else to say.

I wish you the best of luck in life and in work and health for you and your family.

Anspress is the Best Q & A plugin for WP. Period.
