Hi. I’m creating a site with your theme and trying to add as few plugins as possible, so I would like to add at the top of my homepage a classic post slider with image on the left, excerpt and read more on the right and so on, but I don’t see how to do it. Could you tell me which is the right shortcode and configuration? Thanx so much.

Hi. It works great, thanks a lot! Look at what I did in my site Would like now to add a “read more” button at the bottom right of the excerpt area with link to the whole post, customize the image size and formatting title and excerpt font separately. How formatting only this post slide? Thanks again

SaurabhSharma

Hello kkri,

Nice implementation and customization on your site. For “read more” button it will be required to add a line of code inside newsplus/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file. For that kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Image size can be controlled using same selectors which I mentioned earlier. Instead of 48% for both columns you can choose 28% 68% and so on. Titles can also be targeted using these selectors:

.list-slider .flex-caption h1,
.list-slider .flex-caption h2 { } /* Titles */

.list-slider .slide-excerpt { } /* Excerpt */

Regards

Hi SaurabhSharma. I set title and excerpt, thanx. I just sent a mail for the read more button.

Hi. First, love your theme and have advised a client to buy it. Have two questions: 1. I want to customize the category/archive pages and, from reading the comments, I see it is possible using pages and shortcodes rather than creating and customizing individual category-xxxx.php. Is that correct? Is it possible to hardcode a category-slugxx.php file with shortcodes and css classes to achieve the same effect? 2. I use a great sidebar plugin called Content Aware Sidebars. Is it compatible with your theme? Does your theme offer similar customization?

SaurabhSharma

Hello lernerleben,

Thanks for browsing the theme and providing kind feedback.

1. Custom archive pages can be created using short codes in a page. But these will not show pagination. That’s because a page can have any number of loop instances via short codes. In that case pagination doesn’t work. Instead of that you can create category-xx.php by duplicating any of the available template. If you wish to hard code short codes, you can do so using do_shortcode().

2. That plugin is really cool, and the theme supports it. But the theme’s built in sidebar system is not that advanced as the plugin offers. So I would recommend that plugin if you wish more advanced features.

Thanks for the reply. Theme purchased (not by me) and will be installed soon by me.

Thanks man the code worked great for wp front end index fix

I have a question, I purchased your theme for both desktop and responsive mobile layouts.

I have an issue I’m sure you’ll be able to help me with

You can look at it on ( rave society dot com ) from a mobile device to see what I mean. Here are the last few minor details I have a problem with if you could assist me with instructions,:

1) entire site is perfectly mobile formatted without need for zoom EXCEPT the menu. As soon as you click the menu drop down, for anything, it zooms in, causing it to not be perfect. I’ve seen plenty of sites with menu drop downs that don’t cause any shifting of the page. Can you please advice how to keep the mobile drop down menus from not making the web page out of position. Also the image for the menu, the width is too small so the background shows behind it and it looks ugly. 2) in the browse by category and other product view options using the woocommerce plugin, the image quality on mobile looks TERRIBLE. I’m guessing it’s a photo compression issue . But many people will be purchasing products from their mobile device, so what is your advice for making the images look better?

SaurabhSharma

Hello splurgin,

1. I just tested the menu on Android mobile and it seems to work correct. May be opening a menu is triggering scroll bar on right side which might be causing the shift. For that, kindly send me a screenshot and device name on xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

For menu background, kindly add these rules at the end of responsive.css or style.css file:

@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {
.is-stretched .primary-nav,
.primary-nav {
    background: transparent;
}
}

2. Image quality is bad because the thumbnail images are set at 150×150. On mobile, this view port increases while the image remains at same size. This can be fixed by changing catalog image sizes inside WooCommerce > Settings > Catalog > Image Options. Provide a bigger width, height and save settings. Make sure you regenerate thumbnails so that new sizes can come into effect.

I read through all the comments to see what problems the theme has and it took a while (note to ThemeForest: need another way of organizing comments). The result was: definitely buy this theme.

Apart from the great tips and solutions to specific requirements, which I wish could be summarized and made available to future purchasers, there was often the classic ThemeForest-specific problem: the purchaser confuses the download zipped folder (containing demo text and instructions) with the theme-only folder. It installs but the slider doesn’t work, or the menus don’t work, or some other problem. Because the user can see the theme in the Themes section of their install, they don’t realise their mistake. I’ve seen this time and again on other themes. It’s not the author’s fault, but a combination of the user and ThemeForest’s system.

Hello,

Still loving the theme but I want to use Yoast SEO as it provides more flexibility but it is duplicating the meta tags with those auto-generated. How do I stop the meta from being generated from the theme?

Kind regards

Hmm, that is so odd. I assumed that the theme was inserting the Open Graph details. When I try to use Yoast it duplicates the OG data. Back to the drawing board…

Default-user

Hi SaurabhSharma, I’m at a loss. Does the theme create OG meta data?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Mark,

Yes the theme generates OG tags for FaceBook on single posts. FB sharing requires these tags for proper functioning of tags. This is done inside functions.php file at around line no. 672 in add_facebook_open_graph_tags() function.

P.S. Since you asked meta tags for keywords and description, I didn’t thought about OG tags. My apologies for this confusion.

Good day Im inserting posts from a category using the visual toolbar, it displays correctly the posts but how do I make the navigation numbers appear at the bottom with next, prev? for older posts ?

Regards great work

SaurabhSharma

Hello zaguerinho,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback. Pagination will work only on page templates or archives. It will not work with short codes. The reason is, a page can have multiple instances of short codes. In that case, multiple pagination have conflict. So I would recommend using archive page templates if you want pagination.

I’m trying to build a FAQ page and wondered how I would go about improving on anchor point linking.

For example, we have some questions at the top which are links, users click on the questions and get pushed further down the page.

If I could somehow use the same scripting that you used for the ‘back to top’ function that you have in the bottom right as a user scrolls that would be awesome.

I’ve tried using standard HTML anchor points but it’s extremely slow and creates a strange looking URL. Thanks in advance.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Gavin,

You can use the Accordion short code for FAQ in a page. That will keep smooth opening of sections and will close in the same way. You can also use toggle if required. Both these can be inserted from the short code buttons in Visual mode of editor.

Yes I tried that and it was OK but throughout my site I’ll be placing links to specific sections of the FAQ, how do I do that with accordions?

For example with anchor points I’d be able to have a link from any page to /faq#12 and it would take you directly to that anchor point on the page. I don’t know if accordions will do that which is why I asked about the push code.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Gavin,

You are right, accordion will not support ID referencing. Though each panel has a unique ID, it is dynamic. It changes on each page refresh. (Generated through a random integer).

If you look at the documentation file, each topic heading has a “top” link. Clicking on that link takes you to the Table of contents. You can use the same concept in FAQ page.

Theme purchased by another person, I am implementing it

Hi Saurab

On homepage variation 7 you have a 2-column layout, eg “headlines” with 1 big article left and 4 articles listed on the right. I know how you did it (using “offset” to exclude first article from the small list).

The problem I have is that the grey line that separates each section is unequal (you can see it on yours although they almost match) and it looks odd.

It would be great if, for your next update, that whole look could be available as a shortcode (complete with a grey line that stretches across the two columns). In the meantime is there a workaround?

SaurabhSharma

Hello lernerleben,

Vertical height may differ, depending upon image sizes and post titles. if the post titles are lengthy, the content may vary in height. Images can be resized inside Theme Options > Image Sizes, or by providing consistent height images as featured image.

Hey there..

Great theme :) One of my client’s is using it for their Health blog and it’s working really nicely.

Only problem is that I can’t seem to find where the Author’s Bio box is? I want to change the default content as it currently has you as the author.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Also – how can I make sure it appears on every post? I had the box ticked in Theme Options > Blog but it didn’t populate across all single posts.

Big thanks Nik

Oh I forgot to mention that there is a Child Theme that’s been created for this. Could it be the problem?

I’ve added a drop down menu in my sidebar widget which contains my product categories. I’d like to style it so that it takes 100% width in the sidebar. Right now it looks tiny and unbalanced.

Which style do I need to change and what code should I use?

You can add this rule at the end of style.css or user.css file:

#sidebar select { width: 100%; }

Hi… I am having a strange issue with the latest update. We are using a plugin called all-events-calendar by Time.ly (free version). After upgrading to the latest version of Newsplus – the times on the repeating events all show at GMT rather than the time set in Wordpress. Non repeating events are fine. I checked the database and the times are correct in there. I can’t figure out what in the update is throwing the times off.

I checked the other plugins and they are not doing this – but once I changed themes – the times corrected themselves.

How do i add a banner to the top of the page?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Brendacleo,

Banner can be added by navigating to Appearance > Widgets. Inside “Default header bar” use a Text Widget and paste your advertisement code in it. The code can be a simple img tag or an AdSense code.

I’d like to double the size of the pagination squares at the bottom of the product list. I tried increasing the padding but it messed up other parts of the page. How should I do this so it only affects the pagination blocks?

I was thinking of 10px padding all around and maybe doubling the text size. This would make it much better for tablet users and would also increase visibility.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Gavin,

Kindly add this rule inside user.css file:

nav.woocommerce-pagination ul li a,
nav.woocommerce-pagination ul li span {
    padding: 1em  !important;
}
