Hi nice theme and very adjustable to what I was looking for. One question though, how do I change the categories that are shown on the homepage? For example, changing “Technology: What’s Treading” to another categories name?

SaurabhSharma

Hello lotsonj,

Thanks for the purchase and kind words.

Those text/labels can be edited inside Home page. For example, if you have copied home page markup from dummy data, open / edit your Home page and switch to “Text” mode of editor. Next, change the category name and links as required. They look similar to the one shown below:

<h2 class="section-title"><span class="ss-label black"><a href="xxx">Featured</a></span> Our favorites</h2>

Once you change category name and link, you can also change category ID inside the short code following it. If you find any difficulty, kindly send me your WordPress URL and login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

Hi, I like this theme and Volt very much. I have one question though, which applied to both themes. The leaderboard is 728×90… can this be either disabled or resized to 468×60 so that a bigger logo can be put in and spread across the header?

SaurabhSharma

Hello alexcruncha,

Thanks for browsing my themes. In both these themes, leaderboard can be removed or reduced in width to show 468px area. That can be done by adding a couple of rules in CSS. I will help with that if required. :)

Hi, I tryed to install through worpress install area but a error message came. Then I installed your theme using filezilla. However, it appear two search area among other layout problems. What can I do to solve thiese problems, best Toni Martin

SaurabhSharma

Hello Toni,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Two search forms might be showing due to default widgets being populated inside header widget area. That can be removed by navigating to Appearance > Widgets > Default Header Bar. From this widget area, pull out or delete all unwanted widgets.

I would also recommend going through the documentation/index.html file inside your download zip. This will help in basic theme setup and configuration. :)

Hi Saurabh

How to query posts from tags? Thanks…

SaurabhSharma

Hello gibransyah,

For tags, you can use the following parameters inside posts_slider, insert_posts, or post_carousel short code:

[insert_posts query_type="tags" tags="foo, bar, bing" display_style="three-col"]

i.e. query_type=”tags” tags=”foo, bar” are the two parameters to be used.

Regards

gibransyah

I’m happy with this answer. Thanks.

Curious how to display more than just the title in Display_style=”list plain” All I can get is the title of the post. I want some of the excerpt to show as well. excerpt length doesn’t seem to work.

Also curious how if there is a code to eliminate images associated with all your display styles. (list-small, list-large, one-col, two-col, three-col) Be nice to get rid of the images if you don’t want them displayed for home page purposes. Just causes two much clutter for me if every post has image accompanied with it on the home page.

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello yyukon721,

List Plain only displays post title and meta. There is hardly enough space for an excerpt in smaller lists. If you wish to add one, kindly send me your includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will add that feature.

Featured images do not show if there is no featured image set to a post. This can be further improved by adding an option hide_image=”true”. I will add that too in your shortcodes.php file.

Hi,

short question: Is it possible to avoid that the navigation bar transforms into a dropdown menu in smaller screen sizes?

Many thanks Frank

SaurabhSharma

Hello Frank,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

On mobile devices, main menu and secondary menu are converted into a single drop-down select list. If responsive version is disabled from Theme Options panel, these menus will remain as original, but there will be no responsiveness.

If you wish to show menus in original style, while still keeping responsiveness, it will be required to adjust a couple of CSS selectors. I will help with that.

For the second part, the main disadvantage is that long menu items will drop in two lines which doesn’t look good. :)

Regards

Default-user

Hi Saurabh, many thanks! I have a very short nav bar, so no problem :-) I assume that there is something to change in this part of the responsive.css file:

.secondary-nav .sec-menu, .primary-nav ul.nav-menu, .primary-nav div.nav-menu > ul { display: none; }

.primary-nav {
    background: #fff;
    border: none;
    -webkit-box-shadow: none;
    -moz-box-shadow: none;
    box-shadow: none;
}
.primary-nav select {
    display: block;
}
.menu-drop {
    position: relative;
}
SaurabhSharma

Hello Frank,

Yes that is the exact code. Delete line no. 95 to 115 inside responsive.css file. You can also disable insertion of select dropdown menu by deleting line no. 79 to 119 inside js/custom.js file. :)

It works! Many thanks :-)

could we change font color and page length ? I am very much interested for the theme and will require your help for set up.

SaurabhSharma

Hello harrysh,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

Font colors can be changed inside style.css file. For page length, it depends upon the content (in case of vertical length). If you are asking about page width, that can be changed too inside CSS. :)

oyeur78 Purchased

Good job. I recommend. I have a question, how I can add as in the example a banner ad? Grieve but I’m new to wordpress. My site: www.tamilexpress.fr/wp

SaurabhSharma

Hello oyeur78,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

Banner ad can be inserted using a ‘Text widget’ inside Appearance > Widgets > Default Header Bar. Inside this widget area, use a text widget and paste your advertisement code in it. Generally, this is a Google AdSense code and script which can be pasted inside text widget. You can also show a simple banner image with link using the following markup:

<a href="htp:/target-site.com"><img src="http://your-site.com/uploads/banner.jpg" title="banner" /></a>

Similarly, you can show advertisements inside sidebar using a text widget.

Hi, SaurabhSharma!

I changed here { $search_text = __ (‘?????’, ‘newsplus’); ? > } the Latin text on Cyrillics, as a result in a search form only question marks as it ”? ? ? ? ?” What it is necessary to make that Cyrillics was correctly displayed? Thank you

SaurabhSharma

Hello FeDeRaL4iK,

It is recommended that you change texts using .po files as described inside the documentation file’s section 15. Using Language Options.

If you change in core files, make sure they are saved as UTF-8 encoding. Some language characters may not display correctly unless the file is saved with UTF-8 encoding. You can do so by opening searchform.php file in a code editor or notepad++ and save it as php file with UTF-8 encoding. If this doesn’t work, kindly send me the Cyrillic text at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will change it in core file.

Hi great theme really it is one of my best buy. Question1 : I would like to display the twitter and social accounts links of the authors on their author page. How could I do that ? Question2 : I d like to display their avatar but without using gravatar. How could I do that ? Thanks in advance.

SaurabhSharma

Hello migswd,

Thanks for purchasing the theme and providing kind feedback. Please find my answers below.

1. Author bio is configured inside Users > Your Profile > About Yourself > Biographical info. Inside this section, social links can be inserted manually using anchor link and icon images. For example, use this markup:

<a href="http://twitter.com/username/"><img src="http://your-site.com/uploads/twitter_icon.png" /></a>

If you wish to avoid custom markup, you can also try this plugin.

2. Local avatars can be displayed using one of these plugins:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-local-avatars/
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-local-avatar/

I hope one of these will work. :)

Hi thanks. For the info I choose the solution plugins : - WP User Avatar that is great for local avatars (I used simple local avatars on another project but it was buggy) - Visual biography editor : perfect for html bio !

SaurabhSharma

Hello migswd,

That’s great. I’m glad you got it sorted with one of the plugins.

Hello, thanks for the nice theme.

I want to ask which is the best way to have different sidebar in homepage or to have the same but showing more widgets.

Another question. Is it possible to have shortcodes in sidebar?

Thank you

SaurabhSharma

Hello andreaslll,

Thanks for kind words and feedback.

1. For Home page you can register an exclusive sidebar and add widgets to it. You can find details on creating exclusive sidebar inside the documentation file’ section 11. Using Widget Areas.

2. Yes, shortcodes can be inserted using a text widget in sidebar. For example, you can insert tabs, accordion, posts short code, etc. inside a Text Widget in sidebar.

How can I change the color of the Category label on the Homepage using hex ref #’s? My logo has different colors on it and I wanted to use those specific hex#’s.

I changed “red” in the following span class=”ss-label red”

to

span class=”ss-label #29D0DD”

But it did not change colors. It just reverted to black.

Also, some of the category labels have a strike through. How can I remove that? The code is not any different than the ones the don’t have a strike through. You can see at (still under construction) http://localmarketingfusion.com/site_2013/

SaurabhSharma

Hello joedacus,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Please find my answers below:

1. Label colors can be changed using class names. For example, if you wish to show a purple color, use this code:

<span class="ss-label my-aqua">Heading title</span>

Next, add the color rule for purple inside user.css file, or at the end of style.css file:

.my-aqua {
    background: #29d0dd;
    color: #fff;
}

Direct # values can not be used in place of class names. If you wish to do so, use inline style tag. For example:

<span class="ss-label" style="background: #29d0dd">Heading title</span>

I would recommend using class names as shown in first method.

2. Category labels are showing strike-through because a “broken-link” class is being added to those links. May be it’s added by a Broken Link Checker plugin. This class has a line-through CSS property applied. You can try by disabling this plugin, or add this rule at the end of style.css file:

.broken_link, a.broken_link { text-decoration: none !important; }

Excellent Theme!

Is it possible when using the [posts_slider] to have a featured video show up in the slider? Currently only photos are working and nothing displays if I use a video.

SaurabhSharma

Hello ephricon,

Thanks for kind feedback.

Video post format is not supported in slider. That’s because FlexSlider supports Vimeo video. So if a post has YouTube video, it will not be displayed.

As an alternate you can use the content slider for showing videos. When inserting a content slider from Visual Shortcode, choose “Include sample vimeo video slide” option. You can show vimeo videos in content slider.

I need to know if this theme needs plugin to work? And I need to know if loading fast? thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello cilene,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

It is not required to install any extra plugin for this theme. However, if you wish to use WooCommerce, BuddyPress or bbPress, or any other such plugin, it will be required to install them.

On live demo, I have used WP PageNavi for showing paginated bullets. In absence of this plugin, default next/previous links are shown.

About site loading, the theme is optimized for it. However, it will depend upon the size of images you provide and on server’s configuration. You can control images sizes inside theme options panel for better performance. On live demo, I have used high resolution images for better display.

There are other techniques like compressing CSS and JS files. In NewsPlus, I haven’t provided any compression. Files are in default form and can be compressed if required.

I tested its very slow… i got sad…because it I need to know if this theme work fine in mobile phone, tablet and etc?

SaurabhSharma

Hello cilene,

As I mentioned earlier, live demo is slow because I am using full 900px images for content. You can serve scaled images by resizing theme inside theme options panel. Other factors may be shared hosting and traffic on live demo.

It works with mobile devices. You can try by opening live demo in your mobile or tablet. Responsiveness can also be turned off from theme options if required.

Hello! I have some trouble with localization. While I was translating frnt-end part of the theme, everything going OK. But then I have translated lots of strings, I unfortunately found back-end not translated.

SaurabhSharma

Hello DarkSagittarius,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

All front end and back-end strings are translation ready. Make sure you are not using any caching plugin, which may prevent new changes to come into effect immediately. If the problem persists, kindly send me your site URL and login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.
