Hello I wonder if I can create sidebars.

Hi,

You can create unique sidebar for pages. New widget area will appear and then you can add your widgets there.

Hi. I updated to wordpress 3.5 but i lost the mega menu and some pages from my site (www.snowtravel.gr). Can you tell me a way to get back the lost files or i must call my provider to give me back the previous version of wordpress. Also can you suggest me (an tell me the way to put it at the site) another drop down menu for my site (something like jQuery Mega Drop Down Menu) that will work perfect.

Hi,

Yuu just have to set menu again in appearance->menus, if this is the case.

This is not the case… I used the jquery mega drop down menu. After the update i lost this menu and all the pages i had there (like “ski resorts”). Now i can not find them somewhere to put them again. Probably i will return (by my provider) to the previous version. But is this the solution? I will not have any other newest version?

That’s why i am asking if any other menu is compatible with the theme (and the updates)

Sorry, but we do not have this info about third party plugin compatibility with latest WP versions.

I dont see a lot of documentation which concerns me. I want to embed video on the top half of the home page. For example, where the Promoted Article is on the right side. I know I can put it in the sidebar but thats too far down.

Is the theme easy to use? For ex, as long as I put the right size photo in a post will it automatically resize for the homepage?

Last question, for the “display posts” sections can we set those up to be category feeds?

Sorry for all the questions but since there is little documentation, I had to.

Hi,

You can place a video or any content there.

Yes, images will resize automatically to the size you set.

Not sure what you mean by ‘display posts’ section.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks for the first two answers. What I mean by that is what says “fully flexible display posts shortcode.” Can I make those category feeds?

Is placing the video pretty self explanatory?

MNKY
MNKY Author

You can select these shortcode to display categories, tags or post ID’s, there are also many other option in shortcode builder for them.

Just like placing it in the content. Use shortcode or embed code form website.

Thanks!

Default-user

Again, thanks for the reply. I don’t want to keep asking what might be simple questions, but is the shortcode builder pretty easy to use or do I need a decent knowledge of css in order to really use this?

I just need to make sure the theme will do everything I need it to before i buy it. I’m sure you understand.

Carousel doesn’t work properly in Chrome. It does not cycle back to the beginning after the last article… you just get a blank/white space where the carousel articles should be… works fine in Firefox and IE though.

Hi MNKY i purchased local news and i try setup but i have a problem with side bar. side bar goes up and overlaps “promoted article”, how to solve it.

Hello,

You have to place slider and promoted articles in custom header html section and featured article carousel goes to before content widget area.

See page structure image in documentation folder – everything is shown there.

I purchased the theme, downloaded the zip file (three times) and tried to install it in Wordpress (six times) but it won’t load. WTF?

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.”

Do you think I purchased it just so I can watch a ball spin on my screen? I didn’t. I bought it so I could install it and use it.

Is it too much to ask that I could, you know, use what I paid for? I need an answer ASAP as I have a client who needs a project done.

Hi,

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi,

Images are not included with demo content. You have to use your own. When featured image is set, it has to show up. If it is not showing up, try setting localnews/functions/shortcodes-ultimate/lib/cache folder 755 or 777 permisions.

Thanks!

ok, I have fixed this. another question: how resize the news headings?

MNKY

If you cant to modify shortcode. You have to open style.css and look for lines containing .news-listing-title

Thanks!

I see what you mean. You have to place it to ‘before content widget area’.

Hi

Just a query…is there any specific size for the image, which should be added as the featured image….I am asking this because when I open the category page, I see the images of diff sizes above the topic and it doesn’t look good….

Or in other words, how to make the images on the category page of even dimensions.

Thanks

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

If I want the featured image full width is that the 685 px size? If I do that will it screw up anything on the homepage or will they automatically be resized?

I appreciate the help.

Hi,

It depend what column lauout and page template you use. You can change image size in shortcode builder for news shortcode and find prefered size.

Thanks!

Default-user

That made absolutely no sense to me, sorry. If I leave them at your recommended featured image size of 330×185 why do they not appear correct on the home page? Is there a plug in? If I have to use the short code builder can you explain it for someone who doesn’t know a lot. I did send you an e-mail yesterday but haven’t had a response yet.

Thanks for your help

Hi,

We have replied to email that day. Also we have checked the link you provided and images display same as demo.

To use shortcode builder, just refer to shortcode section in user manual. Choose one of the nes shortcode there and customize it to your needs.

Thanks!

Default-user

You replied? Really? It’s not in my inbox or my spam folder. Weird, huh?

If I could attach a screen shot here you would see that the photos are NOT all the same as the demo. I checked it in three different browsers, on my tablet and phone and they still look the same.

Why don’t you go back to the homepage at www.hockeytalk.biz and look at “NHL Quick Shots” and tell me that the photo looks like it transferred correctly. Do the same with the rotating stories at the top of the page. Especially the ones that have a a partial Buffalo Sabres logo and partial Florida Panthers logo.

Some people aren’t whizzes when it comes to shortcode and I’m one of them. I’m less than thrilled with this because I checked with you before I bought the program and was told by you that it was extremely easy to use.

You’ve also ignored my other question about the “More News and Articles” section. I’m not using it because it looks like shit. Nothing lines up right and I asked if that was because the posts that are populating that section have more than one category.

I also sent you an e-mail about that and I’m sure that you will say that you replied to that one as well, but again there is nothing in my inbox or spam folder.

I guess I thought that setting the category would do the job right but apparently that’s not the case. Do I need to have only one category per post for that to work or is there some other magical solution?

Sorry for the crappy attitude but it doesn’t appear that you gave the site more than a glance and then told me its fine when its not.

MNKY
MNKY Author

Sorry to hear that. I will try to explain a bit more I guess.

We have replied to your email and it is marked as replied and is in our sent folder. We wouldn’t say that, if it was otherwise.

1. Images on your website are cropped exactly the same as demo – hard crop from the middle (means that edges are cut off to keep proportions) . To change that you will have to enable soft crop mode instead of hard crop.

a)Update theme to latest version, since we replaed timthumb with resizer based on native WP functions in version 1.3.

b)Then open functions/news-shortcode.php and find instance of

aq_resize( $image_src[0], $width, $height, true );

and change them to 

aq_resize( $image_src[0], $width, $height, false );

c) To change post slider crop, open functions/shortcodes-ultimate/lib/shortcodes.php and do the same as above on lines 999 and 1027.

2. Here is the code for first line of ‘More News’ section. ( and post can be attached to many categories )

[heading bg="#6a2e86" color="#ffffff"]More News and Articles[/heading]
[column size="1-3" style="0" last="0"]
[display_news_s4 category="lifestyle" order="ASC"  include_date="false" excerpt_l="14"]
[/column]
[column size="1-3" style="0" last="0"]
[display_news_s4 category="news" order="ASC"  include_date="false" excerpt_l="14" offset="1"]
[/column]
[column size="1-3" style="0" last="1"][display_news_s4 category="business" order="ASC" include_excerpt="true" include_date="false" posts_per_page="3"]
[/column]

Hope that helps.

Thank you!

I’m trying to update to 1.3 but I can’t seem to find it. I tried re-downloading the zip file and reinstalling it but I get a message saying the file already exists and the install failed. Am I missing anything?

MNKY Author

Hi,

You should download theme from theme forest once again. Here are update steps (choose only one method):

WordPress update

Sidebars and Menus might become inactive. Drag them once again to widget areas in Appearance->Widgets and set menus in Appearance->Menus.

1. Activate default wordpress theme
2. Delete old version of the theme
3. Upload new theme version
4. Press Reload XML in theme options

Manual update

1. Delete contents of wp-content/localnews folder via ftp or hosting panel
2. Upload contents of updated frezhbiz.zip folder
3. Press Reload XML in theme optiopns

Default-user

I loaded the update but now when I try to post I get this:

Warning: Missing argument 2 for wp_kses(), called in /home/daddio5/public_html/www.hockeytalk.biz/wp-content/themes/localnews/functions/cutom_meta_boxes.php on line 122 and defined in /home/daddio5/public_html/www.hockeytalk.biz/wp-includes/kses.php on line 476

I have no clue what it really means but I do know it means that I can’t update my website and that pretty much blows.

What’s going on with this? I’ve never had these problems with a theme before. We need to get this fixed ASAP. PLease tell me how

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hmm, there was no changes in this file in upadte or anything related but try changing wp_kses to wp_kases_post in localnews/functions/cutom_meta_boxes.php on lines 122 and 89

Thanks!

Default-user

That makes zero sense to me. The only thing I know is that when I had v 1.2 I could put up new content on the site and with 1.3 I can’t.

I guess I will try to figure it out and hopefully not crash the whole site

I appreciate your help but I’m realizing that this isn’t a theme for people who aren’t HTML and CSS whizzes and maybe you should put that disclaimer on the page before people buy it. This is extremely frustrating and what makes it more frustrating is that I came here and asked questions before i bought the theme and was assured it was easy.

Default-user

I finally found the code and fixed it. I apologize for my frustration and the only thing I can say is that I had a stroke a few years ago and sometimes I have a hard time figuring things out right away. I still haven’t tried your suggested fix for the More News section but I will be tackling that this afternoon. Thanks for your patience and advice.

Copy localnews.po file from localnews/languages folder to your desktop for editing.
2. Download Poedit and open the file with it.
3. Choose the text to edit and enter your translation in the bottom box
4. Save your .po file according to language code followed by country code. If your translation is written in German e, your file name will look like de_DE.po
5. Once you save, Poedit by default automatically creates a .mo file alongside your .po file
6. Upload the .po and .mo files you just created to your /languages folder so they are in the same directory as the localnews.po 
7. Open wp-config.php file found in your WordPress’ root folder and find
 define('WPLANG', '');   
change it to
 define('WPLANG', 'de_DE');
