404 User profile page

When I click a username to view their profile page, I'm getting a page not found.

The questions can be found at http://thestudentlawyer.com/questions/

And you'll see the error if you click any user.

    Greetings lewischeney,

    Thank you for bringing this items to our attention in which after checking the page for errors and running through check the profile as you indicated, I found the following console error when moving to the profile page:

    Resource interpreted as Script but transferred with MIME type text/html: "http://rockwoodmaple.com/?dm=8ced2264e2c0546eb45f0de6d298d067&action=load&b…ck=http%3A%2F%2Fthestudentlawyer.com%2Fquestions%2Fuser%2Fmike_donnelly%2F". thestudentlawyer.com:84

    But I admit I am not familiar with this error nor what could possibly cause it but I believe this is what is causing our issue there on this particular installation.

    Therefore I will see if I can get the lead developer in here with his invaluable insight into this plugin for his advice/advise for us.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    If you have user-question.php file in /themes/extranews/ folder, somebody must have been copied it there. Q&A does not do that. Maybe your theme developer?

    If there is such a file in your theme folder, Q&A will use it.

    What do you see inside that file? Can you paste its contents here? If it is empty, just delete it.

    Admin account will not be enough in this case. FTP account will be required too.

    I put it there and then edited it to fit with my theme, as I have done for the other pages.

    That is a custom user-question page. Who made this for you? Did this problem start recently or maybe it was there and are you just noticing it?

    To check if problem is in this file:
    - Make a backup of this file, e.g. download it to your PC
    - Delete this file on your server and check again
    - Upload it back if nothing changes

    Also: Please open wp-config.php file and check if you see QA_SLUG_USER there.

    If these don't help, please send your admin and FTP credentials using our contact form:

    You are using several roles and capability manager plugins and probably one of them uses this format and limits access to those pages:


    It is difficult to determine which of them is causing this issue unless you deactivate all of them and reactivate them one by one or playing by their settings, which are a lot.

    Instead and to permanently solve the issue, I changed the question user page definition QA_SLUG_USER to "qa-user" in wp-config.php and those pages are accesible now. It means, from now on your question user pages are like:


    There is no problem of going on like this as Q&A will automatically adapt itself to this change and in the future you can safely update the plugin when a new version is released, that is, this change will not be overwritten.
