I purchased a few months ago and set up a wp blog ,nearly finished it .But I am curious to intall the last upgrade that all my data or styles,widgets ,new plugins can be lost or missed or some of them can be changed.. I read instructions ,first get to back up data’s and then back to old theme and set up.. Second question is that I see good ways ,styles or widgets in the extra news demo ,I want to a tabbed widget on the rigt column on the post includes video ,photo or slides like on your demo..How can I do this ?

Hi Barissca,

Forgive me, I’m having a hard time understanding your question. Have you made changes to the theme’s files? You’d first need to transfer those changed files to a Child Theme before updating your theme. When you update, all of your theme files will be overwritten unless you move them to a child theme.

Excellent theme, it’s perfect except I can’t seem to find a way to have full-width on posts.

Is that possible as some of the posts requires me to use full-width?

Theme looks great so far, but I already have an issue and I just installed it. I’m sure it’s on my end but here is what I get when I try changing the theme options:

Warning: file_put_contents(/home/airsoft/public_html/wp-content/themes/extranews/css/custom.css) [function.file-put-contents]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/airsoft/public_html/wp-content/themes/extranews/admin/options-framework.php on line 444

Looking, it’s appears to have to do with writing the custom.css file. Any ideas why I might be getting this error? It’s a fresh install of WP with only 1 plugin loaded (and activated)...Lockout.

Thanks.

2winFactor

Hi Tphalen,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It looks like there’s just a permissions issue with your custom.css and custom.js files. Just make sure each of those files has read/write/execute (777) permissions in order for the theme to write the theme options to those files.

Can I change the blue color in the theme easily?

Hi Chris,

Yep! You can do that via the Theme Options panel. Here’s a screenshot of the color options for the theme:

Hi there. Great theme! I really love it. Having some issues with images though.

With the slider, on both the home page and on a blog post page, there’s only the option of cropping to keep a consistent size or having the page constantly re-adjusting based on the size of the image. This is a big problem with vertical images. I know with other photo sliders, there’s an option to keep the slider itself the same height, but re-size the images so they fit within it, no matter what the actual dimensions. Is there a way to set it up this way? Or can you add that to the theme please?

The other tweak I’m looking at is the image in the sidebar widget that displays popular and recent posts. Each post will include the big + box, and displays the featured image in that box if one is included. However, if that featured image is not a square, it only fills up a portion of the box, leaving the remaining grey visible. Can it be changed so that the box just automatically extracts a full square section of the image to fill the box, rather than re-sizing the width to fit the box?

I hope this makes sense! Thanks in advance!

2winFactor

Hi Paradigm4,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Do you mean set a fixed height for the slider? You may be able to do that by setting the height of the slider to the largest image height? Could you start a new topic on the Support Forum? I’m not sure how else the slider would stay at a specific height without cropping some of the images.

For your second question, just enter this into the custom css box in Theme Options > Customize:

.tabswrap .featuredimagewidget {
width: auto;
height: auto;
}

Hello,

Great theme and I have one question before buy it. Is there anything that layout of the theme should be much wider than default showing in demo.

Regards,

Sohail

2winFactor

Hi Sohail,

There’s no “wider” layout for the theme. You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to get it to be wider than it is currently.

Hello Andre,

I just bought your theme, I love the layout on the demo. I would like to start from there, so I used the import instructions on both options (xml and sql), and can’t get it to look like the demo, ┬┐any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

Thank you.

Hello Andre,

Sorry for the inconvenience, I tried to post onto the support forum and couldn’t do it (once i try to post, the button just goes to “please wait” and never ends).

The issue I have is with the SQL importing. I did it all along the step by step guide within the importing documentation.

Here are the screenshots: http://crankfm.observatoriodearte.com/screenshots/

The thing is that I can see the posts within the database in PHPmyAdmin, but inside the WP dashboard nothing’s there.

I changed the siteurl value, and when I go to the wp-admin the site is like a new installation.

Maybe I’m doing something (or everything wrong).

Hope you can help me.

Greetings…great them…considering it for project that needs reviews of content by one group of users like ‘editors’ who can add their review and score to the same document/movie etc. – can the ‘easy review system’ be configured for this, or can you point me to the documentation for it…?

Thanks in advance

2winFactor

Hi Gr8Meta4,

I’m not sure what you mean by “one group of users” exactly? You can set up editors that create posts and reviews that need to be approved. Is that what you’re asking? Could you clarify a bit? Thanks!

Andre

Default-user

Thanks Andre…registered users can submit a short story on the site; there are two groups of reviewers that need to score each of the user submissions, ideally resulting in a total score for each submission by each group.

2winFactor

Hi Gr8Meta4,

There’s no “group” scoring with this theme by default. You’d need to make some more extensive modifications to the theme in order for that to work. I’d be happy to point you in the right direction, but that’s a more complex alteration that would exceed the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to seek the help of a developer for an alteration such as that.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

Thanks Andre…is that type of customization something you do…? And is the review portion of this theme a plugin that could be used on a different theme where it could then be customized?

2winFactor

Hi Gr8Meta4,

Unfortunately, I’m not available for freelance work. You may want to try microlancer or tweaky for something like that. The review system uses WordPress built-in custom fields. If you switch themes, you only need to echo those custom fields in your new theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hi there,

I noticed you said you have an answer but I don’t see the CSS…

From a couple months ago someone else asked…

Can I move the search box to somewhere else? what if we want to extend the navigation options to 8? We’ll be pushing up against the search box.

And you replied…

Yes, you can easily hide that with a line of custom css in the Theme Options panel. I’d be happy to help you through that.

Can you tell me what the CSS would be that I need to add?

Thank you! Corey

2winFactor

Hi Corey,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Just enter this into the Custom CSS box in Theme Options > Customize:

.nav .search {
display:none;
}

Then just add your “Search Widget” into any sidebar you like in Appearance > Widgets.

Hey 2win, shot for the amazing theme!

One question: having problems with the gallery. When you’ve created a regular gallery and insert it into the post, the thumbnails for the images show but as soon as you click on them it says “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.”

The image exists though, please help!

2winFactor

Hi Granthinds,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Be sure your gallery is linking to the “Media File” and not the “Attachment Page”. You’ll see that option when you insert a gallery into your page or post. Unfortunately, you might have to do this a couple times due to a bug in the latest version of WordPress (3.5.1), but you’ll just need to make sure it links to the media file.

Hi, I am currently looking to purchase a theme for our company blog, and am very interested in this theme. My boss is wondering if this theme support for retina displays. If it is, we are ready to pull the trigger. If not, would it be possible to have this integrated in an update?

Looking forward to hear back from you.

Thanks,

Hi Paul,

There’s no support for retina displays currently. I’m hoping to add this to a future update, but it probably won’t be for another month or two.

Hi , really good theme, but I have a problem. When I configure in “theme options -> Homepahe -> Homepage Non-Featured Category” any category when I open the site I do not see the last posts but only the post “Hello worlds”.

2winFactor

Hi Wong,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It looks like your wordpress install isn’t creating thumbnails properly. This can be caused by a few things:

1) You’ll need to run the “regenerate thumbnails” plugin if your images were uploaded prior to activation of ExtraNews. This will regenerate those thumbnails to the correct sizes.

2) Your uploads folder needs 777 (read, write, execute) permissions for wordpress to make thumbnails for you. Double check your uploads folder in your wordpress install to make sure it has the proper permissions. Then run the regenerate thumbnails plugin again.

3) Your php version needs “GD” to create thumbnails (and is a wordpress requirement). Double check to make sure that your hosting provider has the latest version of php with “GD”.

Hello, I purchased the theme, installed it per the directions. However, when I click Live Preview I get blank white page and the same thing happens when I Activate the theme.

2winFactor

Hi ATFC,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It’s hard to tell exactly what could be going on without turning WordPress’ debug mode on. Most likely, it’s a plugin that’s interfering with a script in the theme. Try deactivating all plugins momentarily and re-activating the theme. If that doesn’t work, open up your wp-config.php file in your WordPress install and find this line:

define('WP_DEBUG', false);

Change it to this:

define('WP_DEBUG', true);

Then WordPress will let us know exactly what’s going wrong with an error message.

The widget that has Popular stories, how does that work? I see stats on my site and there are far larger stories?

It is the widget called “Custom Post and Facebook Tab”

I really love this theme. It is very well documented and so easy to set up. Thanks for making my little site look so professional.

Hello. Congrats for your theme. Am interested to buy it and I would like to make some questions.

1. On “More Features” you have written “Boxed or Stretched Layouts” how can i see it on live demo?

2. WooCommerce integration?

3. Buddypress integration?

4. More shortcodes (googlemap, lists, alerts, tables etc)?

5. Support Retina-ready?

6. Support Custom Backgrounds?

7. Sticky/fixed menu?

8. In what logic it shows in the grid slider the posts in your theme?

2winFactor

Hi PurpleNinja,

Thanks so much for your interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

1. You can see the boxed and 300px sidebar layout on my development site here:

http://designcirc.us/extranews/

Keep in mind there may be some bugs and the site may go down every now and then as I use this to test new features.

2. Woocommerce isn’t officially supported with this theme. The plugin does cooperate with the theme’s scripts, but you’d need to add your own styles to get it to match the theme.

3. I haven’t tested buddypress with the theme, so I can’t tell you for certain if it works with the theme or not.

4. The shortcodes that you see in the theme are the ones that come with it. I’m currently developing an external plugin for shortcodes with additional features so that you can keep the shortcodes if you ever decide to switch themes. That won’t be for a few months though.

5. It’s not “retina-ready” out of the box. However, it doesn’t use many images (a lot of css3 graphics) so you’d only need to change a few images to svg graphics to get it ready for retina.

6. It doesn’t support custom backgrounds on each page, however, you can add your own custom background to the site via the Theme Options.

7. Sticky/fixed menu isn’t included with the theme. You’d need to make some significant alterations to add this functionality.

8. The homepage grid/slider posts are posts that you mark as “sticky” on the backend. That way you can pick and choose which you want in the grid. It displays all the sticky posts in chronological order by default.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

PurpleNinja

1. Ok, when you say about bugs and stuf you mean the link you gave me, not the one I am going to buy and put on my site?

3. So I’ll wait for confirmation, right?

7.If I buy it, will you give me these alterations? Because is something I need.

8. Those I am going to make sticky, aren’t going to be in the latest news, right?

2winFactor

1. Yes, that’s correct. The link I gave you I use to test new features so that I can eliminate a lot of bugs before I release features. :) There shouldn’t be any now, but there might be in the future when I’m testing.

3. Sure, I’ll give it a quick test. I can’t give you an iron-clad guarantee on this, but I’ll report back any findings.

7. This would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to seek the help of a developer for an alteration such as this.

8. Correct. The latest news ignores the “sticky” posts and just displays all posts in chronological order, regardless if they’re marked as “sticky”.

Andre

PurpleNinja

Ok something last, I use a plugin that plays on its own player video and audio files and it gives me the corresponding shortcode to show the specific audio or video in every post that I want.

So, what I want is to put in the place of the featured image that shortcode and every time when i add something on the place of featured image of single post or page view auto hide the featured image and show anything that add in this place.

Have you any abillity like this on your theme or plan to add something like this on your theme?

PurpleNinja

i am asking you because i see this posts http://designcirc.us/extranews/?p=223

2winFactor

Hi PurpleNinja,

If you’re looking to add your own shortcode video player, it will appear below the title of the post. In other words, it won’t be in place of the featured image by default. You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to have it replace what’s there. That type of alteration would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. I’d be happy to point you in the right direction, but you’d need to seek the help of a developer for an alteration such as that.

Andre

PurpleNinja

and how the vimeo video take the place of featured image?

2winFactor

Hi PurpleNinja,

It’s a custom script that takes the vimeo URL and adds embed code to the featured area of the post.

I just did a quick test of buddypress. It seems to be functioning great – I haven’t found any bugs. You’d just need to style it to match the theme.
