FAQ

Q. When I added [wpabstracts event_id=ID] shortcode to a front-end page, the layout did not fit the page.

A. Ensure to select the full-width template for the page using [wpabstracts event_id=ID] (no side columns).

Q. After installing the plugin and add [wpabstracts event_id=ID] to the front-end, I’m still unable to submit abstracts.

A. You must create an event (e.g. EPA Conference 2019) with topics/sesions. Check your event and ensure you add at least one topic topics/sessions.

Q. I see a login page but no way for users to register.

A. Enable the “Anyone can register” option from WordPress Settings, General tab to enable and display the register link.

Q. When I click the ‘New Abstract’ menu I’m redirected to the home page.

A. Enable the ‘Post name’ or ‘Custom Structure’ option as your Permalinks. Go to WordPress Settings->Permalinks to make this change.

We run a state educational research professional association and used this plug-in this past year to facilitate the peer-review process. The plug-in is easy to integrate, flexible, and user-friendly. It would be helpful to have more administrative features down the road, this product is a solid solution. Great job!
