In settings there is an option to set content of about page, policy and other website pages. However it doesn't work. settings option: Messages and pages - about, privacy policy, etc. it doesn't have any effect on page content, it's always empty. the field is empty in the setting after updating.

A bug is present about this issue. Unable to set About and Faq pages using the settings. github #858 github com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel/issues/858

I see the issue even on Libreoffice Askbot setup ask.libreoffice[.]org/en/about/

I've tested with version 0.11

Is there an easy work around other than putting text manually in 'content': "about"

Line 80 of askbot/views/meta.py

def about(request, template='static_page.html'):
    title = _('About %(site)s') % {'site': askbot_settings.APP_SHORT_NAME}
    data = {
        'title': title,
        'page_class': 'meta',
        'content': askbot_settings.FORUM_ABOUT
    return render(request, template, data)

Maybe someone can create a workaround to use static html file as done with the faq page.
