It could just be bad timing but it seems to me that almost all the new questions are third-party plugin or theme/CSS questions (all technically off-topic).

What can we do about this and is there anything I can do (aside from flagging them and adding a comment about what the community is looking for)?

    We did recently push to have the Question Draft sidebar box modified to include a description of on-topic/off-topic information. I guess nobody reads that :(

  • Is this kind of question also off-topic? It seems to be a plugin usage question according to the rule. Am I right? Apr 14, 2020 at 4:43
  • @simongcc IMO I would say the question you referenced is off-topic, it could probably be re-worded to be more on-topic. But having "In ACF..." in the title and mentioning the plugin several times is probably why it got flagged. Apr 16, 2020 at 20:07

    @RiddleMeThis Agree. Then maybe I try to help to rephrase them when possible. But the content itself is usually plugin-centric. Users tend to comes here for any WordPress related matters. Some of them even expect come and paste then work and turn away...LOL Apr 17, 2020 at 2:16
