Hi.

Really nice theme!!

Pre-purchase question.

Can the theme be translated?

SaurabhSharma

Hello SZTEAM,

Thanks for kind feedback. The theme supports translation using .po files. I will also try if this can be made WPML compatible. :)

Hello, I am having the same problem edukm. I create the sidebar, but the message:

“Sidebar not configured yet. You can place widgets WordPress by navigating to Appearance> Widgets. “

appears whenever I insert some shortcode own theme. When I leave the page without any element that does not happen.

Default-user

Hello! First, thanks for the quick response. I followed the steps indicated in its response to dpallen and managed to solve. I think we need to update the files because there is a problem of sidebar.php on line 9.

Now, would increase the limitation of 140 characters in the excerpt file-classic.php blog. I would like to eliminate this limitation so that the Blog had a traditional look, with the volt theme, without the image above highlighted. Its possible?

Thanks, already bought volt theme for my other site and this for a new project. Congratulations for the good work

Hello corporacao,

An update is ready for a couple of bug fixes including sidebar issue. I will be submitting it today. You can email me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com if you need it earlier.

For classic blog template, the best way would be to duplicate newsplus/templates/blog-classic.php file and change template name at the top of file. Next, excerpt can be replaced with the_content() and featured image part can be removed from line no. 48. You can email me for this too. I will send you the fix. :)

Awesome theme but your page speed score is really low (28 out of 100 on Google’s PageSpeed Insights). Do you have any plans to make the theme faster?

SaurabhSharma

Hello hst151975,

Google PageSpeed might be slow due to non-scaled images. The theme has built in option for serving scaled images. You can provide dimensions, cropping, etc. for different images used in Slider, posts and archives. On live demo I am using full width images for retina display purpose. That can be reduced to smaller images as required. :)

Hi, Thanks for this great template. My blog has many posts without an image. I want to show a default thumbnail on related posts for this posts. Is it possible? Currently there is a blank box over related posts without an image and it looks ugly.

thx.

Hi again. cool template again again.

Can i add Facebook comments code instead of the standard comment field?

And is it possible to add recaptcha in “Contact Us” and maybe in “Comments” too

SaurabhSharma

Hello SZTEAM,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

Facebook comments can be added using any existing plugin like facebook comments. You can also try lifyre comments plugin.

Contact Page template has fixed number of form fields. Instead of that you can use Contact Form 7 along with recaptcha extension. The theme supports these plugins. After installation, a short code is generated for the contact form which can be placed inside any page or Text widget inside sidebar. :)

Hi.. i buy that theme..

How i set size of featured images in post? Now is 160×160px … i need 660×440px ..

SaurabhSharma

Hello nikolavidovic,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Image sizes can be set inside Appearance > Theme Options > Image Sizes. This section allows size parameters for Slider, archive thumbnails and various other post short codes. On single posts, default featured image is used which can be of max width (good for responsive layout).

If your single post is showing 160px x 160px image, it means the featured image is small. It will be required to remove this featured image and set a larger image as featured image. After following this procedure if you find any difficulty, kindly send me your WP login/URL and post URL. I will check and fix it. :)

Dear Saura, How can I change form small logo banner to BIG BANNER on the top with WIDTH full and height = 115

SaurabhSharma

Hello Coi,

In order to show a full width banner, replace newsplus/images/logo.png with the wide banner file. Next, inside Appearance > Theme Options > Header > Site Name/Logo Settings, enable ‘Display Logo Image’ checkbox and save settings.

After this, open style.css file and add these rules at the end of file:

.header-widget-area { display:none; }
.brand { width: 100%; max-width: 100%; }

This will remove header widget area and show a full width logo banner.

I can’t get the ZIP to upload. It says there is no style.css file and therefor fails to upload. I see the file in the ZIP but its not allowing it to upload and is failing to recognize the file???? Any ideas. Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello yyukon721,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

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. Kindly also go through the documentation/index.html file inside your download zip. This contains basic start-up instructions for theme installation and configuration. You may find it helpful. :)

I’m here to recommend this theme. The support is amazing, the best. This is the second I buy, the first was the Volt Theme. I recommend both!

How do you get specific post to appear on specific pages? I create a post but have no way to specify what page I want it to go on. Thanks for your time.

SaurabhSharma

Hello yyukon721,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. I guess you solved it using post shortcodes. Kindly let me know if there was any other specific problem.

Hi. How to increase the size of the main body font?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Dobrodukh,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. main body font size can be increased by adding these rules at the end of style.css file, or inside user.css file.

1. Increase main content font for both pages and posts.

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

2. Increase main content font only for single posts

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

3. Increase for both pages and posts, while keeping smaller font for Home page shortcodes and content.

/* 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;
}

You can place any of these snippets depending upon requirement. If you wish to change entire body font size, simply change it for the body { } selector.

PROBLEM ALREADY SOLVED!

Hi, just bought this theme. I’m already using your Volt theme, that’s installed on the same site.

I can’t install the News Plus theme. I get the error that the file style.css can’t be found.

I tried to install it with uploading the downloaded zip file. Didn’t work. Then I tried to install by uploading the newsplus folder by ftp in the wp themes folder, but this also didn’t work.

Any idea how I can solve this?

Thanks! And your themes are great!

Danny

SaurabhSharma

Hello Danny,

Thanks for kind words and feedback. Not sure if you already solved the problem. It will be required to unzip the download. Next, ZIP the newsplus folder and upload it from your WordPress admin.

Using FTP, you can upload ‘newsplus’ folder to wp-content/themes/ folder so that it resides as wp-content/themes/newsplus/ :)

I have 12 posts rotating on a the carousel, but the page will only show 3 at one time. I was hoping to have 6 showing and once. Any way to do this?

Also it seems that when it rotates to the next set of posts it moves in sets of 3. Is there a way to set the carousel to rotate one post at a time?

Thanks.

SaurabhSharma

Hello yyukon721,

Six posts with one per rotation can be done by changing Carousel parameters inside includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file. For that, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Currently, three posts are shown according to available layout width. Six posts in one row will be too narrow, and only about 90px width. But I will send you the changes. You can keep them or revert back to original file as required. :)

Hi! Thank you for your wonderful theme and support! I really enjoy using it :) But I ned a little help, again :) We use accordions, here, at the bottom of the page http://alpha-parenting.ru/2013/04/04/gordon-neufeld-v-kieve/ but in the accordions 2-4 there’s a lot of blank space! it’s such a dissappointment. Other question – can all accordions be closed by default?
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

Accordion panel height is inherited from the largest height panel. On your site, first panel has long content, so this height is inherited for rest of the panels. This can be changed inside newsplus/js/tabs.js file:

// Accordion
    $( '.accordion' ).accordion( {
        header: 'h5.handle',
        collapsible: true
    } );

Change this code to:

// Accordion
    $( '.accordion' ).accordion( {
        header: 'h5.handle',
        collapsible: true,
        active: false,
        heightStyle: 'content'
    } );

This will make containers auto height and will also close all panels by default.

Does your theme support menu subtitles? Like here http://www.kriesi.at/themedemo/?theme=newscast I really like it and thinking to by for my other project..
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

Yes you can have menu subtitles. For that, navigate to Appearance > Menus. Next expand any menu item and change it’s “Navigation Label”. For example, navigation label of “Home” can be changed to:

Home<span>Home subtitle here</span>

i.e. wrap your subtitle in a span tag just after the navigation label. After making these changes, save menu.

Next, add these rules at the end of style.css file or user.css file:

ul.nav-menu li a span {
    display: block;
    font-size: 0.75em;
}

This will set small font size for sub titles and make them appear in next line.

Hi,

Just bought your theme and I’m really pleased with it. Well done!

I’ve set up the home page as documented, and it’s working perfectly. Currently the ‘technology’ section on the homepage has this code:

[insert_posts cats="5" num="3" display_style="three-col" excerpt_length="90"]

But I would like to change it so it shows posts with today’s day and month from the last few years. So if the visited arrived today, it would show posts for April 5 2013, April 5 2012, April 5 2011. Is this possible? How would I change this code?

Thanks in advance!!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

Post dates are shown using get_the_date() function inside includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file inside insert_posts() function. This can be changed to date_i18n('j F Y', time()) to show current date.

Alternatively, you can edit post dates inside the “Publish” panel of post editor. If the posts are too old, you can re-adjust post dates to show as recent ones.

If you want to make changes in core files, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix.

Is there anyways to install the dummy content?

Thanks

Philip

SaurabhSharma

Hello Philip,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

You can find dummy content inside your_download_zip/dummy_data/ folder. You can either import XML file, or copy/paste contents of home.txt file inside your page editor.

For basic home page setup and configuration, kindly go through the doucmentation/index.html file inside your download_zip. You may find it helpful. :)

Hi again

Why does the colors not change in the home page when i add them for headlines ex:

shows black. can use only few colors since i will like to give categories their own color. Checked style.css to see what colors there are. And there are enough for my needs. But can not change to other colors beside the ones you have added as standard in the dummy text.

SOLVED IT!

I was looking the wrong place. Had to edit style.css around 6907 and add other colors.

SaurabhSharma

Hello SZTEAM,

Thanks for solving the issue. Currently, there are 8 color label classes. More can be added style.css file’s section 9. Miscellaneous > Inline Labels (which you already did). :)

Hi Thank you for a really good theme and your support! I am a total newbie and your help documentation is the best! I have a little question here about the “read more…” link On the archive list-style page at the end of each short peace of text I see this … [...] – as I understand it should be a “read more…” link but it is just a text, not a link. Can you help me to make this [...] look like a “read more…” link? Thank you!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Tesemka,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

On List style archives, we are showing post excerpt using get_the_excerpt() function of WordPress. This shows a hellip which is generally used to denote incomplete texts. Unfortunately, this can not be a link. You can check on WordPress Codex.

To overcome this, I have added a Read More link inside post meta on list style Archive templates. So basically there are three links from which user can navigate to permanent post. 1. From image link, 2. From post title link, and 3. From read more link in post meta.

I would have definitely linked that hellip to permanent post, but the native functions do not support this. :)
