I really love this theme. It’s so easy to build a good looking magazine page with this theme. Great work! I do how ever have a little problem (...and this might not be a problem with your theme) When I update my site – http://flixnyt.dk – I use the normale way to make an article in WordPress, but this means that my site now has more than 200 links which is bad SEO. Is there a better way to update this theme with good content and still keep the number of links under 100 that Google loves? Best Brian

Because the home page is customizable, so you are the person who will decide what will display on home page, mean number of links on home page is depended to you.

I recommend you decrease number of widgets on home page. But don’t worry to much about the number of links, you still have another way to index your site faster: - Submit sitemap to Google Webmaster (use SEO by Yoast Plugin) - Post Video in your content and ping Google. - Build backlinks.

Thanks. Tien

Hi Tien Thanks for the fast reply and great advices. I will remove some of the widgets, but also try to get some video in the content.

[pre-purchase] questions before purchasing, I like the theme but my wordpress is not the latest version. Does your theme support under 3.7? Thanks.

About the image on your page, some your codes are over the images so you can not click. Because that are custom code so I can not cover everything. With your case, you can use below css:
div[id*="attachment"] a img {
    float: none!important;

About author page link, I see it’s working on your site with other author. Please check the author jerry-liu is still available or not.


Thanks, I tried to fix all problem by editing CSS, one more problem which is serious is, after using your theme, the photo of every post which show on facebook share is not related.

Like this http://sportsroad.hk/archives/20738

When I use facebook debug, it shows: Inferred Property The ‘og:url’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:title’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:description’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. Inferred Property The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. og:image should be larger Provided og:image is not big enough. Please use an image that’s at least 200×200 px. Image ‘http://sportsroad.hk/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/support-tseyingsuet-poonlokyan-360x264.jpg' will be used instead.

But all my feature photo is big enough, and in fixed og:image, it shows around 20 thumbnail for me. I used to use facebook debug but it can fix the feature photo for each post. But now I can’t, how to solve the problem?

Dear. I recommend install SEO by Yoast plugin to solve all social meta data. Thanks.

Would you like to say us how we can train on the new template we intend to buy, before switching from our template to the new one? Thanks

currently, each post’s meta shows number of comments & its date, is it possible to show the number of likes as well? thanks.

ic, thx for your advice

what if i only want to add it in “Hot (Sticky News)” layout? so only 3 posts preview requires like button on the homepage

Dear. Because this is not popular design style so I think better you hire a person from Fiverr of microlancer to do that.

Hello, it would be possible to manually select the order of the news by categories that appear in the widgets on the homepage? thk

Dear. The theme support popular / latest / random order only. If you want to manually order, you can change publish day. Thanks.

Hi, i’m really interested in buying your theme, but i have a pre-purchase question.

I need to know how to manage the news in home page, i’ve to select a category and it will display the latex news or i have to select any news that i would like to put in widget?

Thanks a lot Ken

Dear. You just need to select a category (or All Categories) in list of a box and the news box will auto show posts of that category by latest / popular / random order.

Im glad to see there is an update :) Can we see the documentation or a list of new features please?

Dear sir. That’s a mistake of update. I planned update this them next week not this week. Sorry for that. I will notify all when I release a new version immediately. Thanks.

Oh thats fine, I will be waiting for your next update then. have a good day!

Dear friend,

Earlier than promised, I released Flatnews version 1.4 with some new features and fixed some bugs. I just want to notify you, you can read in readme.txt to know the updates.

I will also release some versions in next week. I just want let you know that I always follow my customers.

If you have any suggestions or bug report, just feel free to tell me.

Thank you very much, Tien Nguyen

Will Flat News theme work with WP 3.8 ? I haven’t purchased it yet. I have WP 3.8 installed.

Sorry just found where you said YES it is working with WP 3.8. :)

We want to include a font of language ‘Hindi ‘ as we are creating an Astro website using this theme we have already made a purchase

Kindly suggest us how do we do that so we can copy and paste posts data from our word document

Kindly do the needful as early as possible…

Dear sir,

I just release version 1.4 that allow you upload custom fonts into your design very easily. Please check it out and let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Thank you, Tien Nguyen

Dear Tien, thank you for making efforts to sort it for us. Appretiated. :) However, it inst working seamless and giving errors that i am describing below: post uploading the font via media as you mentioned. we can see the font and choose it from font customization section. whereas, when we copy and paste content from our word doc into post body, it changes the character as if it doesn’t identify the font.

kindly connect with us on email so we can also forward you the font and sample content.

please do consider it urgent as we are already behind delivery schedule.

Dear. You can contact in my profile for private message: http://themeforest.net/user/tiennguyenvan#contact

Ping me and I will reply then we can continue discussing about this topic.

Thank you, Tien Nguyen

Hi Tien, first of all, congratulation for this theme, it’s great! A question for you: I’d like to add an extra widget in the sidebar, with the latest post for a certain category. Is it possible or are you planning to add this feature?

Thank you! Regards, Roberta


This is nice suggest. I will add option to Feed Post Data widget to allow users choose category that they want to show.

Best regards, Tien Nguyen

Great! Thanks a lot :D


I just release Flatnews version 1.4 that had category for Feed Post Data. Now, you can choose category for Popular / Random / Recent post with Feed Post Widgets.

Thanks, Tien

Dear Tien,

Can I adapt the size op the top bar? The one were you can put your logo? And how did you do it to have a top bar like in your demo-version?




You can read in theme documentation, in your purchased folder: flatnews_documentation/index.html

Thanks, Tien

I have this code at the very end of file themefunctions.php to display ads at the end of all posts and pages on my blog.

==== function wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer($content) { return $content.=’<script type=”text/javascript”> google_ad_client = “pub-PUBLISHED ID”; google_ad_width = 336; google_ad_height = 280; google_ad_format = “336×280_as”; google_ad_type = “text”; google_color_border = “FFFFFF”; google_color_bg = “FFFFFF”; google_color_link = “000000”; google_color_text = “000000”; google_color_url = “000000”; </script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js”></script> ’; } add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer’);


Now I want to disable adsense ad on just 2 pages i.e contact and privacy policy pages.

According to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-remove-adsense-on-a-certain-wordpress-page

this is the code to diable ads on a particular page

<?php if( !is_single() ) : ?> ~ your ad code goes here ~ <?php endif; ?>

Now in our theme, can you tell me what to put in themefunctions.php to achieve this?

After replacing the code with above you provided I am getting this error as soon as I save the functions.php file:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ’=’ in

functions.php on line 53

Sorry, you can use the below modified code:
function wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer($content) {
    if (!is_single()) {
        return $content;
    $content .= '<script type="text/javascript">google_ad_client = "pub - PUBLISHED ID";
    google_ad_width = 336;
    google_ad_height = 280;
    google_ad_format = "336×280_as";
    google_ad_type = "text";
    google_color_border = "FFFFFF";
    google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
    google_color_link = "000000";
    google_color_text = "000000";
    google_color_url = "000000";
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http : //pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"></script>';

    return $content;

add_filter('the_content', 'wpsnpy_add_adsense_post_footer');

Thanks a lot. it is working now :)


Nice theme!

I just installed it following the instruction in your documentation, but somehow my page is not displaying anything after I placed all the widgets.

It only show the articles if I select “your latest posts” from the “customize” section. But if “static page” is selected, the page looks empty.

Did I miss a step somewhere? Thanks!



Thanks you for your quick rely. Yes. I am just replacing my old theme.


I have tried several ways to get the layout going, but my homepage is not working. i have organized my widgets in a correct order, but the page only shows the menu and a comment box at the bottom.

The articles are showing only when I click on a category from the menu.

Any idea what’s wrong?


Please share me your site URL. I will take a look. And make sure you cleaned your cache plugin.


Thanks for your support. Can you tell how to upgrade to 1.4? Am I going to lose the changes I made?

Last one, many of my thumbnails for related posts are missing, can you help me fix this. Thanks again.

Way 1. Deactive the current theme, delete it then upload flatnews-theme-install/flatnews-theme-v1-4-0.zip

Way 2: Unzip flatnews-theme-install/flatnews-theme-v1-4-0.zip, you will see a folder with name: flatnews, rename it to anything and zip it and upload and active it.

All are basic.

some how the no 2 doesn’t work as easily. I copy flatnews and rename it, zip, and upload it, but i get this message: Destination folder already exists. /hermes/bosnaweb01a/b1121/ipg.yubeliumcom/wp-content/themes/flatnews/ other time i get css is missing.

For the no 1. when I deactivate my current theme, delete it, and upload 1.4, is my website will appear the same as it is now or do I have to build it again…

I am trying to get the basic here…

Hi, so sorry for my lack of knowledge. There is a sub-file flatnews that I need to rename, and I just did it, and it worked. :) Thanks again for bearing with me.


your theme is wonderful, so I just have bought it. Having installed your theme and flatnews testing data by means of WordPress Instaler my site is designed in very plain and simple way – http://www.interimbenefit.eu.

Could you help me? I supposed after installation the site will be “a clone” of your sample side.

Thank you very much

Jiri How to get

Dear sir,

I wrote very detail theme documentation. You can find in your purchase folder: flatnews_documentation/index.html.

Thank you for advice. I managed more or less to set up my site now. Your documentation is very detailed and wrote in an easy understanding way. Other authors should inspired by you. Jiri

The theme is very nice!


Oh, this is nice suggestion, I will consider for next version. Thank you very much.

About update theme without loose your modified code, you can read this: http://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-upgrade-a-wordpress-theme-even-if-its-customized/

Thanks, Tien

I bought the theme and I like it very much. I don’t know how do I set the section Header Ads (too little documentation explaining this part). Can you help me? Thank you.

Thanks for the quick response. Header ads and bottom ads sections can’t be edited, they are empty. In other sections (Flexible Home Layout, etc.) I can add anything I want. I mention that I have not installed any plugin and I use WordPress 3.5.1. What could be the problem?


Did you add Text widget into Header ads and bottom ads sections? If you still hard in working with theme, please send Teamviewer ID + Password (download here: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/windows.aspx) I will take a look.

(send Teamviewer ID + Pass into my profile to make private connection: http://themeforest.net/user/tiennguyenvan#contact)

Thanks, Tien

Thank you tien! There was no problem with the theme :)

Hi, If I place a banner 728×90 into break section it does not appear.


Break section support break widget only. You can place your ads on Flexible homepage, Header ads, Bottom ads or sidebar sections only.

Thanks, Tien
