I really love this theme. It’s so easy to build a good looking magazine page with this theme. Great work! I do how ever have a little problem (...and this might not be a problem with your theme) When I update my site – http://flixnyt.dk – I use the normale way to make an article in WordPress, but this means that my site now has more than 200 links which is bad SEO. Is there a better way to update this theme with good content and still keep the number of links under 100 that Google loves? Best Brian

Dear.

Because the home page is customizable, so you are the person who will decide what will display on home page, mean number of links on home page is depended to you.

I recommend you decrease number of widgets on home page. But don’t worry to much about the number of links, you still have another way to index your site faster: - Submit sitemap to Google Webmaster (use SEO by Yoast Plugin) - Post Video in your content and ping Google. - Build backlinks.

Thanks. Tien

Hi Tien Thanks for the fast reply and great advices. I will remove some of the widgets, but also try to get some video in the content.

[pre-purchase] questions before purchasing, I like the theme but my wordpress is not the latest version. Does your theme support under 3.7? Thanks.

tiennguyenvan

Dear. Yes of course. I finished this theme when Wordpress is still at 3.6x

thanks, just purchased. But how can I change the size of font in the top menu, they are just too small. And can top menu support drop down menu? How can I change the font size of the article box as well

one more question, I set some hyperlinks in one page: http://sportsroad.hk/sports-columns

I used to click the photos for the author page>http://sportsroad.hk/archives/author/jerry-liu, but I can’t click the photo now. Even I check with my page, all links are set well.

And in the author info, when I click the name, it shows the link with 404 like this, http://sportsroad.hk/author/jerry-liu

Please let me know how can I solve these? Thanks.

tiennguyenvan
Dear. The theme supports dropdown for main menu only. At this time, we not support change font size of top menu or article box by options (because we will have too many options), but you can look below css:
.menu-menu-top-container li a {
    font-size: 14px!important;
}
#flexible-home-layout-section .news-box .snippet {
    font-size: 16px!important;
}
tiennguyenvan
About the image on your page, some your codes are over the images so you can not click. Because that are custom code so I can not cover everything. With your case, you can use below css:
div[id*="attachment"] a img {
    float: none!important;
}

About author page link, I see it’s working on your site with other author. Please check the author jerry-liu is still available or not.

Thanks

Thanks, I tried to fix all problem by editing CSS, one more problem which is serious is, after using your theme, the photo of every post which show on facebook share is not related.

Like this http://sportsroad.hk/archives/20738

When I use facebook debug, it shows: Inferred Property The ‘og:url’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:title’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:description’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. og:image should be larger Provided og:image is not big enough. Please use an image that’s at least 200×200 px. Image ‘http://sportsroad.hk/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/support-tseyingsuet-poonlokyan-360x264.jpg' will be used instead.

But all my feature photo is big enough, and in fixed og:image, it shows around 20 thumbnail for me. I used to use facebook debug but it can fix the feature photo for each post. But now I can’t, how to solve the problem?

tiennguyenvan

Dear. I recommend install SEO by Yoast plugin to solve all social meta data. Thanks.

I have this code at the very end of file themefunctions.php to display ads at the end of all posts and pages on my blog.

==== function wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer($content) { return $content.=’<script type=”text/javascript”> google_ad_client = “pub-PUBLISHED ID”; google_ad_width = 336; google_ad_height = 280; google_ad_format = “336×280_as”; google_ad_type = “text”; google_color_border = “FFFFFF”; google_color_bg = “FFFFFF”; google_color_link = “000000”; google_color_text = “000000”; google_color_url = “000000”; </script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js”></script> ’; } add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer’);

?>

Now I want to disable adsense ad on just 2 pages i.e contact and privacy policy pages.

According to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-remove-adsense-on-a-certain-wordpress-page

this is the code to diable ads on a particular page

<?php if( !is_single() ) : ?> ~ your ad code goes here ~ <?php endif; ?>

Now in our theme, can you tell me what to put in themefunctions.php to achieve this?

tiennguyenvan

Dear,

Just add the condition inside the wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer function and add return $content for it. Then put all that function and filter code into functions.php

Default-user

Can you please provide me copy/paste code for this?

tiennguyenvan
function wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer($content) {

    return $content;
} 

add_filter('the_content', 'wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer');

After replacing the code with above you provided I am getting this error as soon as I save the functions.php file:

Hi,

Nice theme!

I just installed it following the instruction in your documentation, but somehow my page is not displaying anything after I placed all the widgets.

It only show the articles if I select “your latest posts” from the “customize” section. But if “static page” is selected, the page looks empty.

Did I miss a step somewhere? Thanks!

Dear,

Tien,

I have tried several ways to get the layout going, but my homepage is not working. i have organized my widgets in a correct order, but the page only shows the menu and a comment box at the bottom.

The articles are showing only when I click on a category from the menu.

Any idea what’s wrong?

Hi,

Thanks for your support. Can you tell how to upgrade to 1.4? Am I going to lose the changes I made?

Last one, many of my thumbnails for related posts are missing, can you help me fix this. Thanks again.

Dear,

In item detail page, scroll down the bottom, you can see the release note.

Can you share your site url? I will take a look.

Thanks, Tien

Default-user

Site url http://yubeliumcom.ipage.com/ I wonder why it will show a blank page first, and then only when I refresh then the site will appear on my browser (Firefox).

Should I be worried to lose my site configuration if I upgrade 1.4 version?

Default-user

Btw, do you have any recommendation on how to create a child theme for Flat News?

tiennguyenvan

Dear.

Did you use any cache plugin and cache software?

Don’t worry, the configuration will not be changed.

And the theme not support child theme.

Thanks, Tien

Default-user

I am not sure if I am using cache plugin/software. Maybe. I installed a child theme plugin, and noticed that when I used child theme the top menu went missing. Are you going to upgrade this theme with child theme support?

Btw, I noticed that when I put URL link for media, it does not generate the picture. I thought this may be the cause why many of my pictures have gone missing. I hope this can be fixed easily. Thanks.

tiennguyenvan

I must access your site as an admin to know what’s happen with it. Please start private discussion here: http://themeforest.net/user/tiennguyenvan#contact

Default-user

Hi, So sorry it took this long to get back. Eventually I figured it out why many of my pictures went missing. It appears that those affected were hosted with my WP blog, so when I put my blog into private, the pictures cannot be accessible. So it’s no longer a problem. :)

Default-user

1. On my dashboard>Themes it says that Flat News version 1.3.3. I know you upgraded it, so I wonder if I am using 1.4 now or still the version on my dashboard.

2. I’d like to put pagination to some of my posts. I tried using JQuery for hide/show text but it made the related post into two columns instead of three. Can you help me pls?

3. I am glad that the new version features feed for categories. I’d like to add feed icon on my front page next to categories. Your help will be highly appreciated.

tiennguyenvan

Dear,

1. You must sure your cache plugin was cleaned. The version must show 1.4.0. Did you update it?

2. The theme supported post pagination of WP like official themes. Use below codes for break your post:
<!--nextpage-->

3. Thank for your suggestion, I will consider that feature in next version.

Thank again, Tien

tiennguyenvan

The nextpage code must insert in TEXT mode.

Default-user

Thanks a lot. I am still not sure how to update to 1.4. I tried to upload it but got this message: Destination folder already exists. /hermes/bosnaweb01a/b1121/ipg.yubeliumcom/wp-content/themes/flatnews/

Default-user

which folder do I need to unzip and rename? Is it the flatnews-theme-v1-4-0?

tiennguyenvan

Way 1. Deactive the current theme, delete it then upload flatnews-theme-install/flatnews-theme-v1-4-0.zip

Way 2: Unzip flatnews-theme-install/flatnews-theme-v1-4-0.zip, you will see a folder with name: flatnews, rename it to anything and zip it and upload and active it.

All are basic.

Default-user

some how the no 2 doesn’t work as easily. I copy flatnews and rename it, zip, and upload it, but i get this message: Destination folder already exists. /hermes/bosnaweb01a/b1121/ipg.yubeliumcom/wp-content/themes/flatnews/ other time i get css is missing.

For the no 1. when I deactivate my current theme, delete it, and upload 1.4, is my website will appear the same as it is now or do I have to build it again…

I am trying to get the basic here…

Default-user

Hi, so sorry for my lack of knowledge. There is a sub-file flatnews that I need to rename, and I just did it, and it worked. :) Thanks again for bearing with me.
