Hello again

My query is about CPT again. I have done some very interesting pages through the use of terms. Now I ask, because I understand this is not a functionality included. I need to use a short code to link the terms in the logic of “and”. By using terms = “pencil, red” what happens is that lists all the pencils and everything that is red, but not necessarily only red pencils.

can you give me ideas on how to implement this feature?

regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello metalfuel,

Yes that can be done by changing the query code. using operator => ‘AND’ inside CPT query of shortcodes.php file, we can query terms based on AND operator. For this, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. If you have made any changes to shortcodes.php file, kindly send me that too.

Hi! How can I change logo area size? I have a logo, that is not ok in 90px height, I need to get it bigger, up to at least 120px.

SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

Logo is set to auto width and auto height. However, there is a max width limitation of 25%. This can be changed by adding these rules at the end of style.css file:

.brand { max-width: 40%; }
.header-widget-area { max-width: 60%; }

So, if you increase max-width of .brand (logo), make sure that amount is reduced from header widget area’s max-width too.

Is it possible to change an appearance for articles in a particular category?

For some categories I don’t want visitors to see an author and publishing date(actially the whole string in gray), But it would be great to have more liines to describe the training (in an exerpt). http://alpha-parenting.ru/library/ – I mean in this view with big pictures
SaurabhSharma

Hello ziraell,

If those posts are generated using insert_posts short code, it is possible to hide post meta and increase excerpt length. For example, use this short code:

[insert_posts cats="xx" display_style="list-big" excerpt_length="300" hide_meta="true"]

Using excerpt_length and hide_meta, you can achieve the desired result. :)

Hey. I think about buying your wonderful theme. A couple of questions: 1) Can I set as the home page here this http://labs.saurabh-sharma.net/themes/newsplus/wp/blog-classic-style/ (to be displayed only the classic blog entries without using the main page) 2) You can remove the top menu and search?

SaurabhSharma

Hello vsehmogushiy,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

1. Yes home page can be set as blog in any of the available styles like classic, grid, or other archive templates. This is done by setting that page as front page.

2. Top menu bar can be disabled from theme options panel. You can also choose to show custom text in place of menu and search bar if required. :)

Hi. I just installed the theme and so far it’s very easy to use and update! I’m trying to update my colors and went to the customize menu. When I click on any of the menus, the drop downs appear and then close again after a few seconds. I can’t actually change anything. Any ideas?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Plantivores,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

I think there can be a conflict with one of the installed plugins. You can try by disabling all plugins for a while. If the problem solves, start enabling plugins one by one until you find the conflicting plugin. If this doesn’t work, kindly send me your WordPress URL and login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check and fix it.

Default-user

Hi, thanks, that was the problem! I found the plug-in that was causing the problem and deactivated it. Everything works fine now. It is called WP Copyright Protection. I don’t need it at the moment but would love the opportunity to use it if need be. Thanks for your help!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Plantivores,

I’m glad you got it fixed. :)

Hi!

Great theme. Really enjoying using it! I have two questions:

1. In an earlier answer you explained how to make the font larger for all pages except the homepage using this code:

/* 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; }

This worked great except it makes the font on search results, etc large, which I don’t want. How can I keep the font sizes small for search and archive pages?

2. Where in the style.css is the background colour for the lower widgets?

Thanks! :)

SaurabhSharma

Hello Andrew,

1. Search and archive pages can be targeted using .search and .archive class respectively. Kindly change previous CSS code to this one:

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

/* Keep font smaller for home, archive and search */
.home .entry-content p,
.home .entry-content ul,
.search p,
.search .entry-content ul,
.archive p,
.archive .entry-content ul {
    font-size: 1em;
}

This will set smaller size for archive and search pages.

2. Secondary widget area colors are set inside style.css file’s section 3. structure:

#secondary {
    background: #444;
}

You can also control these colors inside Theme Customizer by clicking on the “Customize” option inside Appearance > Themes. This customzier supports secondary area background and link colors.

Do you think for the next update you can add more customized colors like links ect…?

SaurabhSharma

Hello mediaforce123,

General link colors can be changed inside syle.css file. Adding them in theme customizer may override some link styles in widgets or headings. So I skipped that part. Only main color highlights are covered inside customizer. I will definitely see if more options can be added.

Default-user

I meant I want to change the header where the logo is placed… I can not find it in CSS

SaurabhSharma

Hello mediaforce123,

Main site name header and link color can be changed by adding these rules at the end of style.css file, or inside user.css file:

.brand h1 a,
.brand h2 a,
.brand h3 a,
.brand h4 a {
    color: #your_value;
}

Similarly, you can provide color for hover state using .brand h1 a:hover, .brand h2 a:hover, and so on.

Hi Saurabh I should appreciate you for the themes you develop. I first bought Volt and now upgraded to News plus, Both the themes are easy to set up.

I have certain issues with News plus 1. My posts are mainly videos , when in the post format I choose video, the featured images in the post shows a direct video except the slider, the user tends to play the small size video, instead of going to the post page, how can I show featured image instead of direct video. If I choose to embed the video in the post and choose post type as standard then both the featured image and video reflects.

2. After installing my subscribers are not receiving new post email notifications.

3. The font size in the post body is too small to read, I want the increase the font size by default, how do I do that.

4. The post body almost touches the side bar and makes it look as if everything is merging, I want a distance of at least some pixels between the body and side bar.

I have absolute no knowledge of coding and programming.

I can be contacted at aakash@letstalkpodcast.in My blog URL is learnex.in

Regards Aakash K

SaurabhSharma

Hello Aakash,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback. Please find my answers below:

1. Your second approach is the correct solution to video posts. i.e. create a standard post and embed video into post content using [embed] short code or other markup. Automatic featured image insertion can be disabled inside ‘Appearance > Theme Options > Blog > Single Post Settings > Hide featured Image’. Enable this option and Save settings. This will hide featured images on single posts.

2. Kindly let me know which Widget/Plugin you are using for subscription and notifications. I will check that.

3. For font size on single posts, page, or both; kindly refer to the documentation/index.html file’s section 21. FAQ > Q. 14 How to change font size.

4. Gap between content and sidebar can be increased by reducing content width. For that, kindly add this rule at the end of style.css file:

#primary { width: 65%; } /* Previously 66% */

Kindly let me know about subscription feature. I will check it further. :)

Hi-

I just purchased your theme, and I can’t seem to find the slider options. I also can’t find how to make the front page more than two columns.

Basically I can’t make it look anything like the live preview.

Any info you can give me would be much appreciated.

Thanks, M

SaurabhSharma

Hello M,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. You can find instructions for theme setup and configuration inside your download_zip/documentation/index,html file. This contains basic steps like creating Home page, posts, featured images, slider, short codes, etc. After going through the documentation, if you find any difficulty, feel free to email me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will help you further. :)

Hi Saurabh,

Could you tell me how it is i get the wee picture of myself to show up on my own blog when i comment, my Gravatar as it’s called. I’ve set everything up so its working and displaying on every other website i leave a comment, however i can’t figure out how to do it on my own site. Thanks in advance.

SaurabhSharma

Hello SelfHelpHealing,

As you might be aware, Gravatar is displayed when your email address is associated with gravatar.org. Make sure the email address set inside your WordPress admin is associated with gravatar.org. May be the one you commented on other sites is different email address. I hope that will work.

Ah got it. There were 2 admin@ emails associated with my blog, one in the user profile & one in the general settings. Seems i was changing the wrong one. Thank you very much.

Hello, I’m using your theme in one of my company projects and I’m getting some problems when trying to create and use specific widget areas (both in header and sidebar).

I was using default one for every page and everything was working fine, but in the moment I check the options in a page so the specific sidebars get created at the Widget’s section, the page gets crazy and I can’t even go back to the previous configuration, it’s impossible to get back to my old default header/sidebar.

In fact, I get different ressults in two pages with same settings.

Could you give some clues about what can be happening? Sorry about my english, let me know if I can bring more specific information in order to help you.

Thanks in advance!

Hi again,

One last thing if that’s alright. When i create “Tags” on my website, they are added to my “Filter by category” setion on my RSS feed. So i have a large list of categories showing on my RSS feed, as well as loads of Tags that are unnecessary. Do you know what code i can add or remove that will stop the theme putting “Tags” onto the “Filter by category” section of RSS feeds. I tried a few fixed from other sources but they were not compatible with this theme.

Thank you for your help as always. You’re a star. :-)

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Feeds shall work normal as they do in twentytwelve theme. I can confirm that there is no overriding of feeds functionality inside the theme. If you have any filter override or code, you can mail me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check why it’s not compatible. :)

How can I change the thumbnail size of NewsPlus Flickr widget? Default seems to be 75px both width and height.

SaurabhSharma

Hello friistailer,

Flickr thumbnail size is set inside style.css file’s section 5. Widget Area:

.flickr_badge_image {
    position: relative;
    float: left;
    margin: 0 0.8333em 0.8333em 0;
    width: 5.833em; /* Equals 70px at 12px font size */
}

.flickr_badge_image img {
    width: 5.833em;
    height: 5.833em;
}

You can change width and height in pixels, and adjust margin as required. :)

How to insert a dropdown menu in the demo?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Pattima,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Menus can be managed inside Appearance > Menus. If you have already created a menu, drop-down menus can be created by dragging menu items to the ‘right’ side, under a parent menu item. Similarly, if you drag them to the left side, they will become primary menu items. If you find any difficulty, kindly send me your WP login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will set a sub-menu. :)

I like this theme for my front page blog multisite.

I want buy only for the frontpage, but I want that see the recents post of all the blogs and the category post be replace by blogs. Is it possible?

SaurabhSharma

Hello wilsonmsn,

Thanks for browsing the theme. Currently, all posts are shown from particular category, tags or Custom Post Types. With this query loop, it is not possible to pull posts from other blogs. There are some plugins which allow showing posts from other blogs in MU, but that may not work in same style as shown on live demo. :)

I have a difficulty: through Menus ( Set navigation menu inside WordPress Appearance > Menus) it is impossible to create navigation menu. After preservation in Menus navigation menu doesn’t appear in a template -( in what there can be a difficulty? thank you

SaurabhSharma

Hello FeDeRaL4iK,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Menu locations will not save if the theme is installed as your download zip. May be your current installation directory is like this one:

/wp-content/themes/your_download_zip/newsplus/

The correct one should be:

/wp-content/themes/newsplus/

If the download zip is installed directly, a long theme name is detected, which is the name of your download folder. Due to this long name, menu items are not saved. I can confirm it further if you send me your site URL. :)
