how to change the grey/light grey background colors of the top 2 menus?

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Top menu color is set inside style.css file’s section 4. Header:

#utility-top {
    background: #f5f5f5;
}

You can change the styles here, or duplicate the selector and paste at the end of style.css file or user.css file for modification.

How do I display ads with this theme?

SaurabhSharma

Hello chulchee,

Advertisements can be displayed using a Text widget in Header widget area or inside sidebar. For that, navigate to Appearance > Widgets. Next, use a Text widget in any sidebar and paste your advertisement markup in it. This can be a Google Ad Sense code, or simple img tag.

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a straightforward way to place feature images within single-post content (on left) and wrap text around them?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello flatwebb,

Using “alignleft” class on image will float them left and wrap the text around it. or if you simply insert it using “Add media” button, and choose “left” alignment, it will automatically add these classes:

<img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-9247" alt="" src="http://yoursite.com/wp-content/uploads/image-150x99.jpg" width="150" height="99" />Rest of the site content ...

I hope this will help.

Ever had problems with menus not saving in theme customizing view. I can change them in that preview and save, they look correctly but after refreshing the page chosen menus get lost.

SaurabhSharma

Hello friistailer,

Yes I can see that once out of several iterations. I just tried changing menus and saving them. After page refresh, old menus appeared. But this didn’t happened when I tried next time and several other times. It happened only first time. May be it is related to preview frame or browser cache. I will check it and update if required.

Hi, I want to insert a Next and Previous buttons in each post. Can you please give me a solution ? Best Regards Thierry

SaurabhSharma

Hello Thierry,

Open newsplus/single.php file in editor and place this code just before the comments_template() call at around line no. 106:

?> <nav class="navigation">
<div class="nav-previous alignleft"><?php next_post_link(); ?></div>
<div class="nav-next alignright"><?php previous_post_link(); ?></div>
</nav> <?php
comments_template( '', true ); // Before this line

This code will add the next/previous post links.

If you find any difficulty, kindly email me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Regards

So the problem is that I can’t save any menu as a primary menu. No error message or such. It just doesn’t save it.

SaurabhSharma

Hello friistailer,

If it is inside Appearance > Menus, then it is a known one when the theme is installed as direct download ZIP. For example, if your theme is installed as:

/wp-content/themes/your-downlad-zip/newsplus/

Then you may get menu saving problems because of the long folder name which is treated as theme name. Correct installation directory would be:

/wp-content/themes/newsplus/

Another issue could be a caching plugin like W3 Total or Super Cache. Make sure you clear all plugin cache and check the site again. I hope one of these solutions will work.

Regards

Hi, I found a solution for The Next and Previous buttons in posts It’s ok now you can see it on thierrycouteau.com Best Regards Thierry

SaurabhSharma

Hello Thierry,

No problem. I’m glad you found the solution. :)

The theme installed beautifully and integrated with buddypress, but I want to customize the homepage and there is no documentation folder as referred to in the Readme.txt

Where can I find the documentation for implementing some of your homepage variations with short codes?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello cspurgeon,

Thanks for the purchase and kind words. Right now you might have downloaded the installable theme archive. You can download complete “Main files” archive from the downloads button drop down. Inside this main file archive you will find documentation, dummy data and the installable theme.

Regards

Thank you for this beautiful theme, works like a charm :)

Nice work on the site. :)

Does this template have of a option to implement comment boxes for readers to respond? I looked through the preview and specs and didn’t see that option.

SaurabhSharma

Hello WGC_admin,

Thanks for browsing the theme. Comment boxes can be seen on single posts. For example, check this post:

Hello SaurabhSharma

Thank you for your great support on my previous questions.

Inserted pictures on posts aren’t coming too nice. is ok on home page, but when you open the post, you can see the pictures aren’t too good. Can you recommend any sort of solution. Link is what2advise.com

Thank you

SaurabhSharma

Hello eddievet,

On single posts, pictures are inserted automatically using featured image. If you see original pictures, they are blurred and are not too good in quality. For example check the following ones:

http://what2advise.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/asthmatic.jpg
http://what2advise.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/anxiety.jpg

If these pictures are of good resolution or quality, they will appear good on single posts too. Further, if you wish to disable automatic insertion of pictures in single posts, you can do so inside Appearance > Theme Options > Blog > Single Post Settings > Hide Featured Image.

hi, please help me? dummy_data newplus theme file where file will be uploaded. Filezilla is asking for. Thank you.

SaurabhSharma

Hello rabiacalhan,

dummy_data folder is located inside your main download ZIP. From your “Downloads” button, choose the main files archive for download. This contains the theme + documentation + dummy_data folder.

Regards

Default-user

I know that. I do not know where you will record in the file filezilla.

SaurabhSharma

Hello rabiacalhan,

dummy_data folder is not required to upload any where using FileZilla. This is just a folder with dummy content which you can use in your WordPress site. The XML files can be imported using WordPress Tools > Import. And the text files can be used to copy and paste the content inside your pages.

If your query is different than what I described above, feel free to ask again.

There is a way to hide or remove the “post data” (for example the date of pubblish and author) from the widget “Newsplus Recent Posts”?

SaurabhSharma

Hello axelts,

Post meta can be removed from newsplus/includes/widget-recent-posts.php file, or by adding this CSS at the end of style.css file:

#sidebar .post-list .entry-meta { display: none; }

Hi, I have reviewed this wordpress theme.It looks really good but i have few questions. 1) Is there any way to integrate a rating plugin in it so user can rate each post. 2) I also want to show no of views of each article and also want to show 5 to 10 most viewed articles in current category on left side in each post. will you please recommend me light weight and good plugins if these functionality not exist in current system.

Thanks :)

SaurabhSharma

Hello jahanzaibawan,

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

1. The theme supports GD star rating plugin, but it can not be displayed inside post short codes.

2. You can use any popular post widgets which is based on number of views. In that case, you can use the widget, but can not show those number of views inside post short codes. You can try these plugins:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/popularity-posts-widget/
http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-most-popular/

How do I use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-paginate/. It shows pagination where it usually says on the bottom, Older Posts.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Grant,

The theme has built in support for WP PageNavi plugin. If you install this plugin, your theme will automatically show post pagination.

If you use wp-paginate plugin, it will be required to place their function inside core files which is a redundant task. We have already placed such function for wp pagenavi.

Regards

grantkessler

So once I install it everything is already done? When I installed it before it didn’t show up.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Grant,

Yes, if the plugin is installed it will automatically show pagination.

Hi Saurabh,

Is there a way to post a “pictorial”? ie just an image in the post with few or no words/text where the image in the post is used as thumbnail but not as featured image? if the image is made as ‘featured’ it shows up twice in the post. If I create a post with just the image as featured image, and not embed the image in the post – my RSS feed for the post is blank for email subscribers as it does not take the featured image.

to put it another way, is there a way to make my RSS feed to read the featured image for the post? Thanks.

ps: I’m planning a set of posts which are just one image each and figuring out how to make this happen within the theme and work with my RSS feed as well. Thanks

Hi Saurabh, the issue is that it will disable Featured Images for all posts, and I’ll have go about inserting Images manually for a lot of old posts.. Is there a way to disable Featured Images for a certain category of posts only or even for a single post?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Srini,

Featured images can be disabled for certain categories. For that, open single.php file and lokk for line no. 49:

if ( 'true' != $pls_hide_feat_image )

Change this conditional statement to:

if ( 'true' != $pls_hide_feat_image && !in_category(4) )

Where 4 is the category ID you wish to skip. Change this to the desired category ID. After that, posts in this particular category will not show featured images.

SaurabhSharma

Hello rabiacalhan,

Information on creating Home page can be found inside your main download/documentation/index.html file. In order to create Home page variation 7, open your_download/dummy_data/home7.txt file and copy it’s contents. Next open your Home page in WordPress editor and paste this content inside “Text” mode of editor. After that, you can edit the content and short codes as required. If you find any difficulty, you can send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hello SaurabhSharma

For some reason the posts aren’t displaying on Lifestyle-category. Tried to re-install then from start but it’s the same. What2advise.com is the link Thanks

Hello eddievet,

There is no category named “Lifestyle” on your site. Make sure the category exists and the posts are published in it.
