Hello, Ben again. :)

Would you recommend me WISYWIG editor for this theme? I love wordpress but sometimes the interface of wp makes me dull or something.

CKEditor was very good except its P tag insert.

Is there any WYSIWIG editor plugin compatible with this theme? :)

SaurabhSharma

Hello Ben,

The theme supports all such editors. It depends whether these editors support WordPress’ shortcode system. For reference, CKEditor was wrapping shortcodes in paragraph tags, whereas native editor is designed to escape them.

You can try advanced version of TinyMCE editor which works well like WordPress’ native editor.

Hello,

I just bought this wonderfull theme but I was curious if you could add the possibility of a nice gallery/image scroll feature in the theme. An example of what I mean: http://hypebeast.com/2013/3/2014-range-rover-sport?utm_source=hypebeast&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=Hypebeast%2BHomepage%2BFeature%2BBanner

I simply want to add multiple photo’s in a blogpost but in some kind of user-friendly scroll feature.

Is this possible? I simply love the minimalistic approach and the styling, but I only miss this option! :-)

Thanks. Guido

SaurabhSharma

Hello guidson,

The theme supports “Gallery” post format. i.e. you can show a slider of gallery by using Gallery post format. You can also insert a content slider inside single post using the Visual Short code.

For details on gallery post format, kindly go through documentation/index.html file’s section 10. Using Post Formats.

P.S. For future support requests kindly post message from the account from which you purchase theme.

I’m looking to buy this theme and wondering if it’s possible to make the section for the logo at the top of the page a little longer. Our logo is long and will have to be compressed to fit into that space. Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Plantivores,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

Currently, logo’s max-width is constrained to 25%. This can be increased to 30% or 50% as required. I chose 25% so that a leader-board banner can reside next to it. This can be changed easily inside style.css. :)

Regards

Default-user

That’s great! Does this require coding? I’m new to this and don’t know any code. If I change to 30% or 50% does the leader-board banner shrink down accordingly? And when enlarging to 30 or 50% does the height change too or just the width? I’m ready to buy if I can figure this out. The theme looks great and I appreciate your quick response.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Plantivores,

Changing width will not require any coding. It’s a simple CSS rule to be changed inside style.css file. I will help you with that.

When logo width is increased, leaderboard width shall be decreased in same proportion. It may be then suited for 460px banner. Height is auto. Logo can be of any height as provided.

I have bought more than 70 themes and plugins on Envatos pages and have been disappointed with the support and constraints in several themes. NewsPlus does not belong to that category. I Would really recommend NewsPlus and Saurabh Sharma’s work and absolutely superb support.

Thanks very much, Conny. I’m glad you liked my work. :)

why there is no review system in this theme? do you plan to include it?

SaurabhSharma

Hello undisputedx,

Thanks for browsing the theme. I’m planning on rating system. If you have any good plugin suggestion, kindly let me know.

Regards

Default-user

A simple rating system like other themes will do,

I have one more question: does it have google+ author support? as this is a news theme?

SaurabhSharma

Hello undisputedx,

I will try with some rating plugins and will check which one works good with short codes too. For Google+ author, this theme will support existing plugins like this one.

How can I change the body fon sizet? It’s too small. I can’t find it in the CSS.

SaurabhSharma

Hello anglotopia,

Body font size is set inside style.css file’ section 2. Typography:

body { font-size: 1em; /* 1.1666em for 14px */ }

If you wish to increase entire layout’s font-size, change this rule:

html {
    font-size: 75%; /* 87.5% for 14px */
}

Or if you wish to change only content font size, or only on single posts kindly let me know. I will suggest appropriate selectors.

Regards

Default-user

I only want to increase the content area font size. Changing those two settings you indicate increases the size of all the fonts and make the layout larger. I just want the content font to be bigger.

SaurabhSharma

Hello anglotopia,

For increasing only content area font size, add these rules at the end of style.css file or inside user.css file:

/* Increase font size in both pages and posts */
.entry-content p,
.entry-content ul {
    font-size: 1.1666em; /* or 14px */
}

If you want it only for single posts, add these rules:

/* Target only single posts */
.single .entry-content p,
.single .entry-content ul {
    font-size: 1.1666em;
}

If you want to change for both pages and posts, while still keeping font size smaller for Home page post shortcodes, add these rules for Home page:

/* Increase font size in both pages and posts */
.entry-content p,
.entry-content ul {
    font-size: 1.1666em; /* or 14px */
}

/* Keep Home page font smaller */
.home .entry-content p,
.home .entry-content ul {
    font-size: 1em;
}

If you find any difficulty, or have any confusion, feel free to email me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

Perfect – that’s exactly what I needed. Thank you for your help. May I suggest adding this option to the Theme Customizer or as an option in the Theme Options?

Default-user

Now a new question. How do I remove the white space between the header logo/ad area and the primary menu? I was able to do it for the top part but can’t find the setting in the CSS for below the header.

SaurabhSharma

Hello anglotopia,

You can add these rules a the end of style.css file or user.css file:

#header { padding-top: 0; } /* Previously 1.5em */
.brand { margin: 0; } /* Previously 0 0 2.25em */
.header-widget-area { margin: 0; } /* Previously 0 0 0.75em */

This will remove any gap from top and bottom sections.

First off, I want to say that I love the theme. So far, I’ve found everything to work perfectly. I am having one minor issue, however.

I can’t seem to dynamically include the page title as an H1 on the page. I’ve tried using the full width right sidebar template, the default post template, the contact template, and others. I have some basic level knowledge of PHP and am going into the theme editor and editing the code trying to insert the title.

Here’s an example: http://katychristianmagazine.com/locations/ I’d like for the template to dynamically insert “Locations” as the H1.

Is there a trick you know of by chance? Also, could you consider adding this an an option in later versions of the theme?

SaurabhSharma

Hello brandonlemley,

Thanks for kind words and feedback. It is very much appreciated.

Currently, page titles are automated only for category/archives. On Pages, these can be inserted manually inside page editor. For example, on this page I have inserted an h1 heading inside page content. (Not in php core files), using this markup:

<h1 class="section-title">Your heading</h1>

In order to make it automated, kindly add this code inside page.php file, just after line no. 9:

<?php show_breadcrumbs(); // Add after this line
echo( '<h1 class="section-title">' . get_the_title() . '</h1>' );

This will enable automatic page titles. :)

How come the style.css file is missing in your zip file?

SaurabhSharma

Hello markandgary,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

It will be required to unzip the download first. Inside your download zip, there is a ‘newsplus’ folder which you can ZIP and upload to WordPress.

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

Hi! I just bought this theme, but the menus doesn’t work :( http://alpha-parenting.ru/ – it stays like after I follow instructions
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

The installation directory is wrong, due to which menu locations do not save. It will be required to unzip the download first. Next, look for the folder named ‘newsplus’. This is the actual installable theme which you can ZIP and upload to WordPress.

Your current installation directory is:

http://alpha-parenting.ru/wp-content/themes/themeforest-4208250-newsplus-magazineeditorial-wordpress-theme/newsplus/

This should be:

http://alpha-parenting.ru/wp-content/themes/newsplus/

For reference, menu locations do not save if a very long theme directory name is detected. In this case, the download ZIP has a long name.

Please also go through the documentation/index.html file inside your download zip. You may find it helpful for basic theme setup and configuration. :)

Hello! This is Ben.

I encountered another problem here. 1) Headlines The most recent, 2) News in Pictures do not work anymore. I mean Those two sections are not importing newest articles anymore. So I wanted to modify ‘homepage’ page, but nothings changed.

http://img124.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=739540421_working_122_183lo.jpg

Let me know how I can fix this error. :(

SaurabhSharma

Hello Ben,

Kindly check if the category IDs provided are from the ones in which you have published recent articles. I can see some posts of March 31 in those sections. For example, those two sections might not be having category IDs from “Marketing” or “Social media” categories. You can also use “-1” as category ID to show posts from all categories.

If the IDs are correct and still not working, kindly send me your WP login and URl at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check and fix it. :)

Hi. Super great theme. One problem that makes me hit my head on the wall and scream: I dont understand how to upload and scale the images so that they won’t move the whole layout because of different heights. I uploaded some and scaled them via the WP interface to the same 600px height. But they are still showing with inconsistent heights on the homepage and posts. I tried the hardcrop button, but to no result. (Yes, I did regenerate the thumbnails). Everything is jumping around. Example at: www.skystalker.net

What am I doing wrong? I would want to avoid to have to scale each image before uploading.

Cheers, .sky.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Sky,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

Make sure you have scaled images using Appearance > Theme Options > Image Sizes. Right now your site images are not scaled or regenerated. For example, check this one. A scaled image will have size prefix added in front of it like image-300×200.jpg.

If the “Image Size” option doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login and URL. I will check it. :)

Regards

Default-user

Many Thnx! Partially I did fix it, but still some issues, for example now all thumbs have resized properly except for those that are in an image gallery on top of a post. I also have an issue in placing a Google customized search box below posts as the google layout code gets mangled somehow, but this is not that important. I’ll send you my login, please take a look if you got the time. Again, perfect news theme, no doubt about that, love it and recommend it.

Hi, How can I change the body font size and font Family ? It’s too small. I have Changed the style.css file like following, but i couldn’t change properly :

body { font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.5; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #555; background: #f5f5f5; }

body.custom-font-enabled { font-family: “Arial”, Helvetica, sans-serif; }

Please Guide me, I need Font Arial , with 12px size

Thanks Michael Larry

SaurabhSharma

Hello michaellarrylm,

In order to use default “Arial” font, navigate to ‘Appearance > Theme Options > Custom Font > Disable custom Google font’. Check this option and save settings. Your site will automatically disable Google font and use Arial.

Default font size is 12px only. Open sans renders 12px smaller than Arial. Once you disable Google fonts, 12px will look a bit larger with Arial.

Kindly let me know if you want to increase font size of particular section, entire body, or just pages or posts. I will suggest appropriate CSS.

Hi! I can’t change secondary navigation area color in the editor. Main navigation chages ok… http://alpha-parenting.ru
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Theme Customizer is supported for Main navigation, secondary ‘widget area’ and footer. Currently, it does not apply to Top Menu. Possible I will add that in coming updates.

You can override Top menu color inside style.css file’s section 4. Header. Background is set inside ‘Top utility bar’ section, and navigation colors are set inside ‘Top secondary navigation menu’ section. Kindly let me know if you need any help with CSS. :)

Hi SaurabhSharma,

I do also have to say your support is amazing. Thank you. Question about the 4 column widget area on the base of the theme. My client only wants 3. Can you tell me how to remove the default secondary column 4 and spread out the other three? Thank you so much.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Char,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback. Secondary columns are coded inside footer.php file. There are four DIV blocks with class names “column one-fourth”. You can remove one of those blocks and change class name to “column one-third”. Make sure the last block has class name as “column one-third last”.

After making this change, if you find any difficulty with CSS ro layout, feel free to email me. :)

I love this theme. I want to upgrade volt themes with this theme. it is compatible? That page setting, posting ect.

Regards.

SaurabhSharma

Hello gibransyah,

Thanks for browsing the theme and providing kind feedback. Volt will be updated in a while with fully responsive version and CPT support. However, shortcode names are different in Volt and NewsPlus.

In Volt, different shortcodes are used for different post styles, like, three_col, thumb_list, plain_list, etc. Whereas in NewsPlus, a single short code insert_posts is used for all this purpose. Due to this, Volt short codes will not work in this theme, unless you change them inside site content.

Besides shortcodes, your post content and data will remain same, and will be adapted according to theme styles. :)

Hi, thanks for the good work!

I need more information about using a “Custom Post Type” through shortcodes.

I am setting the home page and can not get this kind of post appears.

[insert_posts query_type = "cpt" post_type = "noticia" display_style = "list-plain"]

I also used the taxonomy, but I can’t obtain the information.

My Post Type

register_post_type('noticia', array( 'label' => 'Noticias en Prensa','description' => '','public' => true,'show_ui' => true,'show_in_menu' => true,'capability_type' => 'post','hierarchical' => false,'rewrite' => array('slug' => ''),'query_var' => true,'has_archive' => true,'exclude_from_search' => false,'supports' => array('title','custom-fields',),'taxonomies' => array('category','Noticias',),'labels' => array ( 'name' => 'Noticias en Prensa', 'singular_name' => 'Noticia', 'menu_name' => 'Noticias', 'add_new' => 'Agregar', 'add_new_item' => 'Agrega una noticia', 'edit' => 'Editar', 'edit_item' => 'Editar noticia', 'new_item' => 'Nueva noticia', 'view' => 'Ver', 'view_item' => 'Ver noticia', 'search_items' => 'Buscar noticias', 'not_found' => 'No encontrada', 'not_found_in_trash' => 'No encontrada en papelera', 'parent' => 'Superior', ),) );

and taxonomy

register_taxonomy('Noticias',array ( 0 => 'noticia', ),array( 'hierarchical' => false, 'label' => 'Etiquetas','show_ui' => true,'query_var' => true,'rewrite' => array('slug' => ''),'singular_label' => 'Etiqueta') );

thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello metafuel,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback. For custom post types, it will also require adding term names if you are using custom taxonomy. In your case, short code may look like:

[insert_posts query_type="cpt" post_type="noticia" taxonomy="Noticias" terms="books, cars, internet" num="5" display_style="list-plain"]

Where ‘books, cars, internet’ are the term names in which those custom posts are published. I hope this will work.

metalfuel Purchased

Thanks, it worked with your help! I was forgetting the “terms”. I thought if that option was left blank all “cpt” appear. I think it would be a good choice considering the “post type” are similar. My solution now is to put the same term to each CPT.

Anyway, differentiate CPT by term is an excellent tool that opens many other opportunities to display content.

regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello metalfuel,

Glad I could help. Some CPTs have custom taxonomy, while others use default “category” taxonomy. So I added “terms” query parameter so that these posts can be targeted more precisely. :)

Hi I’ve installed your theme, but in IE8 it doesn’t display the correct fonts when the website is first loaded unless I either reload the page or click onto another page. I’ve tried your demo page in IE8 and it loads the correct fonts immediately but on my website it won’t unless I force the page to reload. For all other modern browsers it displays as it should. Why could this be?

SaurabhSharma

Hello smgray84,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. IE8 has some known issues with loading of Google fonts. But as you said live demo fonts are loading properly, I will have to check your site URL. Kindly post your site URL here or you send me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check it. :)
