Support » Plugin: AnsPress - Question and answer » Doubled “Title” etc. on ask questions page

    Firstly, kudos for creating a nicely put together plugin, which largely works out of the box. I have one issue, with the /questions/ask page form, I get several duplicate fields:

    Title
    Title
    Category
    Category
    Description
    Description
    Submit

    I only have the one [anspress] shortcode on the page.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello Richard,

    Someone posted same kind of issue few months back. They gave me access to their site to find the cause of issue. I found it was due to a caching plugin they had in their site (I forgot the name of plugin). Can share which plugins you are using and also try disabling some plugins.

    hi Rahul,

    thanks for the very(!) prompt response.

    I’m not using any caching plugins, but I suppose it could be another plugin causing this…

    I’d also rather not share internal information on this forum, but it’d be ok to give you access if you create a user account on the site: https://www.naktiv.net

    Does that help?

    Please send it to support@anspress.io. I’ll check in morning.

    Ok, done, and thanks for taking a look!

    Got it, it’s something to do with the interaction with the “WPSSO Core Pro” plugin. Switch this off, and the behaviour is as expected. The WPSSO plugin has setting: “Apply WordPress Content Filters” yes|no (default no). With this switch set to ‘yes’ the double title and other fields appear. The WPSSO plugin author says:

    The use of WordPress content filters allows WPSSO Core [Main Plugin] to fully render your content text for meta tag descriptions and detect additional images and/or embedded videos provided by shortcodes.Many themes and plugins have badly coded content filters, so this option is disabled by default. If you use shortcodes in your content text, this option should be enabled — if you experience webpage layout or performance issues after enabling this option, determine which theme or plugin is filtering the content incorrectly and report the problem to its author(s). Advanced users can also hook the “wpsso_can_filter_content” filter and return true / false to enable or disable this feature dynamically.

    If I disable this switch, as per the default, then the problem goes away. However, as the WPSSO plugin author suggests, maybe this is something which you might consider investigating in your own (otherwise excellent) plugin?

    Hi,

    I’m the author of WPSSO Core. This issue sounds like a shortcode that is echo’ing it’s content instead of returning it (a shortcode is a filter, not an action). Try unchecking the “Apply WordPress Content Filters” on the SSO > Advanced settings page. You can find more info on that option here: https://wpsso.com/docs/plugins/wpsso/installation/debugging-and-problem-solving/

    And a post on the WordPress.org blog about these kinds of filter / shortcode issues: https://make.wordpress.org/plugins/2017/10/03/is-your-filter-going-to-break-the-layout/

    js.

    Thanks for helpfully chipping in with the explanation to clear this up, JSM! (thumbs-up)

    Hello,

    Look like its fixed. Our upcoming version has lots of changes related to shortcode rending, I will try WPSSO and will improve shortcode rendering if required.

    Thanks

    Excellent news Rahul, I’m sure I’m not the only one looking forward to the new release of AnsPress. Keep up the good work!
