I upgraded my askbot from 0.10.2 to 0.11.1 and run with python3. I found the answer box did not response after clicking "Add answer" link.

Are there any interim solutions? What if I downgrade it to 0.11.0? In addition, the "add a comment" link has the same issue. It is because python 2 is end-of-life, I need to run it with Python 3.

I will publish the fix by the end of this week.

Meanwhile you could untick setting "data entry rules" -> "Allow posting before logging in".

I've just published version 0.11.2 where this issue is resolved. There is a small issue that the redirect is to a custom answer sort url (newest answers first) - the reason for that by the time the redirect url is built, the answer permanent url is not known. Maybe in the future version there will be a better solution.

The issue is fixed, thank you for your effort.
