Hi! How can i remove the sidebar and instead enlarge the home page slider (carousel) and maket he category carousel show 4 posts at one time?

SaurabhSharma

Hello marcos12lis,

Sidebar can be removed by assigning a page template “Page – Full width” from the Page Attributes panel. This will make your page full width and will remove sidebar.

Number of carousel columns can be changed inside newsplus/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file, at around line no. 522 inside posts_carousel() function:

max_items = 3;

Change this to max_items = 4; and save file. This will enable 4 items per row in carousel. If you find any difficulty, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

How to insert a banner in the header as you have in the demo?

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Advertisement banners can be inserted using a ‘Text Widget’ in any widget area like header, sidebar or footer. For example, navigate to Appearance > Widgets > Default Header Bar. Next, insert a Text Widget in this widget area and paste your advertisement code in it. This is generally an AdSense code, but a simple banner can be inserted using img tag as:

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

Similarly, you can insert 300px advertisements inside Sidebar widget area too.

Is there a html code that I can use to not display my posts featured image as a thumbnail on my homepage. The thumbnails just overcrowd my page. I was hoping to just have the title of the post not a thumbnail with every post.

Thanks.

Never mind Got it. Thanks.

SaurabhSharma

Hello yyukon721,

Thanks for solving the issue. Post thumbnails will hide if there is no featured image, or by assigning display: none to the image containers. I will try to add an option for hiding post images inside shortcodes, similar to hide_meta or hide_excerpt.

on the front page, there is a title and the date and number of comments below the title, how to remove the date and the number of comments that lies below the title.

SaurabhSharma

Hello petisah,

If front page posts are created using blog archive, post meta information can be disabled inside Appearance > Theme Options > Blog > Archive Settings > Hide Post Meta. Check this option and save settings.

If the posts are generated using slider or post short codes, you can hide it by adding a parameter hide_meta=”true” inside short code. :)

Hi there, love the theme, looks great, considering buying it. I have a question, is it possible to enable animated “news ticker” on this theme? For example to have it at the far top. If there is no ticker with this theme, which one would you recommend? It should look as simple and clean as possible. Tnx!

SaurabhSharma

Hello YgorDon,

Thanks for browsing the theme and providing kind feedback.

Currently there is no built in ticker, but you can use one of these plugins inside NewsPlus theme.

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-newsticker/
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/

With these plugins, news ticker can be inserted using short code, or by including php function inside core template files. If you wish to show on to most part of site, it will be required to add function inside header.php, else you can use short code any where inside page. I will help you with that if required. :)

Regards

YgorDon

Thank you very much, ditty news ticker looks best to me. Best!

Where in the style.css file is the padding above the main menu defined? It’s pushing my logo up too far, and I want my logo to be sitting close to the menu.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Andrew,

For removing gap between logo and main menu, kindly add this rule at the end of style.css file:

.brand,
.header-widget-area {
   margin: 0;
}

Still, something wrong with theme Customizer Support or im doing something wrong… Can someone tell me the instructions, because it does not appear…

Also, how can I reduce the padding/margin above the right sidebar so it is in line with the main content?

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Sidebar is in line with main content. Possibly there is some empty p or br tag inside main content. I can check that by looking at your live site. For reference, the gap between main menu and (content + sidebar) is set inside style.css file’s section 3. Structure:

#main .wrap {
    padding: 1.5em 0 0.75em;
}

As you can see, this gap is common for both sidebar and main content. So there could be empty p tags. Kindly send me site URL to check. :)

I have three questions, of which all three involve some CSS tweaking: 1) How do I change the margin with the light gray background at the top, between the top of the screen and the top of the navigation bar? 2) How do I change the background color of the entire document? 3) And, if I wanted change the height of the navigation bars, how would I do that?

SaurabhSharma

Hello joedacus,

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

1. If using stretched layout, this margin is removed automatically. But if using boxed layout, add these rules at the end of style.css file:

/* Remove gap between top of screen and main container box */
#page { margin: 0 auto; }

/* Remove gap between top menu and container top edge */
#utility-top { margin-top: 0; }

2. Background color can be changed inside ‘Appearance > Background’ section of WordPress. You can also change it by adding this rule inside style.css file:

body { background: #color_value; }

3. Navigation bar height are inherited from margin/padding on menu links at primary level. For example, main navigation height can be changed by changing padding of primary links as:

ul.nav-menu > li > a { padding: 0.5em 0.85714em; }

You can increase or decrease 0.5em for top/bottom padding. Current one is 0.8571em. Reducing to 0.5em will reduce main menu height.

For top menu (in grey color), height is inherited from menu items and the search box at right side. So if you decrease the size, that search box may bot fit correctly unless we change it’s height too. Kindly let me know if you want to do that. :)

Hi, I love this theme but I wonder if it is possible to enable Social Sharing right from the home page. I mean in the home page below every news, to add tinny social share buttons with social counters. Is that possible to do? Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello loeches,

Thanks for browsing the theme. Currently social sharing is enabled only for single posts. If we place social share buttons for individual post modules, there can be a conflict with OG tags and other meta data. For example, Facebook sharing requires OG tags to be added inside head section of a page. These are unique for each shared data. So there can not be multiple OG tags for different post modules in same page.

I will further check FB API and other sharing buttons API. If this is possible, I will definitely give it a try.

Hi, I’ve just purchased this theme. But when I’m trying to install in wordpress apears this massage: Unpacking the package …

Installing the theme …

The package could not be installed. The issue is not the style sheet style.css.

The theme of the installation failed.

What I have to do?

SaurabhSharma

Hello greeedu,

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. You can also upload this folder using FTP to wp-content/themes/ folder.

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

Hi! I started having troubles with the theme in Opera browser. After I have any changes (like adding new widget or activating a plugin), all the text goes blank! Sometimes closing and opening Opera helps, sometimes – not. I wonder – what it could be.. http://alpha-parenting.ru/
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

I just checked the site. There are no conflicting plugins, or any caching plugins which may generally cause such issue. Apart from that, I just found that there is some invalid HTML markup inside text widgets in sidebar and secondary widget area. For example, img tags are closed in wrong manner, and there are some inline attributes like align=”middle”, which are not supported. You can find details here.

After fixing this custom markup, the site shall work good in Opera too. Kindly let me know if the problem still persists. :)

Hello, I am wondering: How can I get posts with a Youtube movie to display a screenshot or picture of the movie on the frontpage automatically? Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello MSmits,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

If you are using a ‘video’ post format, a video will be embedded in place of featured image thumbnail. In order to show video thumbnails, a different approach can be applied.

1. Create a post with ‘standard’ post format.

2. Insert your video inside post content using [embed] short code of WordPress.

3. Install a plugin which can create screen shots from inserted video. For example Video Thumbnails Plugin. This plugin creates screen shot of first embedded video in a post. These screen shots can be saved in media library.

4. Set featured image on this new post from the saved screen shots, and publish post.

Using this procedure, your post will be treated as standard post, and will show video screen shot in post shortcodes. On single post, it will show actual video which you inserted using [embed] short code. Further, to make this video responsive, you can wrap it in a div as:

<div class="embed-wrap">
[embed]http://url-of-video/[/embed]
</div>

Make sure the code is inserted in “Text” mode of editor. :)

Thanks for your quick response! Is it also possible to show a smaller video size on the frontpage? So the main post contains normal size, but front page (for example “featured” block) shows a smaller edition of the video which can be played on front page?

SaurabhSharma

Hello MSmits,

Embedded videos have certain limitation on width. For example, some YouTube videos with advertisements in beginning will show a “Video too small” error. That’s because it violates their TOS with advertising partners. I have enabled video embeds fro two col and three col post short codes. But for small lists (similar to recent/popular widget), it will show featured images if provided.

Besides that you can show embedded video in small sizes using archive templates or insert_posts short code.

Hello miraksubba,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. This look is normal at first install when widgets from your old theme’s sidebar are shifted to header widget area as fallback. Nothing to worry about here. You can pull them out or delete them by navigating to Appearance > Widgets. From the “Default header bar” widget area, delete all these widgets one by one.

I have covered this information in the beginning of documentation/index.html file inside your download_zip. Kindly go through this file as it may help in basic theme setup and configuration. If you come across any issue, feel free to send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Top navigation color is set inside style.css file’s section 4. Header:

#utility-top { background: #f5f5f5; }

Hello akpa,

Main navigation bar colors can be changed from Theme Customizer. For that, navigate to Appearance > Themes. Inside your active theme section, click on “Customize” link. This will open Theme Customizer. From this panel, click on “Colors” section and configure colors as required. Finally save these changes. :)

You can also change colors for footer section using Theme Customizer.

HI?SaurabhSharma!Thanks for the wonderful theme! how can i hide the right sidebar when viewed in smartphone? or how can i hidden specific wigdet?

SaurabhSharma

Hello edukm,

On mobile version, sidebar is stacked under main content. If you wish to hide it, add this rule inside user.css file’s 3. Mobile section:

@media only screen and (max-width: 480px) {
    #sidebar { display: none; }
}

You can also target any particular widget by finding it’s class or ID name in browser source code, and set display: none on that selector. For example:

@media only screen and (max-width: 480px) {
   #sidebar .newsplus_recent_posts { display: none; }
}

If you wish to hide these for iPad, you can place them inside 768px media query.

We love the layout of this theme and would like to use it as a “Drudge Report” type portal. (mostly Links to other sites with a few photos, then the links drop off after a few days, or go to archive) For this type of use should I have “Blog Page” on the front page or “Pages” It defaults to blog. (Can’t figure out how to display pages in the main area of the home page.) Joe

SaurabhSharma

Hello 2medweb,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

Front page settings can be changed inside Settings > Reading Front page Displays > A Static Page. here, set front page to “Home” and posts page to none. Make sure you create a Home page from Pages > Add New, so that this page appears in settings.

According to your requirement, a custom Home page will work better because you can adjust links to external sites. If you use existing archive template or post short codes, they will link to single posts. Instead of that, use different column short codes like 1/2, 1/4, etc. and insert images/content manually. By doing so, you can link them to external sites. If you find any difficulty, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

You can find more details on home page configuration inside your download_zip/documentation/index.html file. :)
