Hello,

After the last wordpress update (today) there is a problem with the editor in the Herald theme. I think it is the theme because I have tried on other websites with other themes and it doesn’t happen.

It looks too small, as you can see in the screenshot (https://paste.pics/ebb2f553851038b89ffb7d4a2b902725).

It’s only the visual editor part, the rest is fine. When I put the inspector, I get these errors (screenshot: https://paste.pics/76cfe771849af7921f53f076781a9134)

Thank you very much.

Hi, any idea when you’re releasing the update? I waited a few days before upgrading and now that I did, I am suffering :D

Hi

The update is live

Cheers

Edit: Okay it is fixed with 2.3.3 only. Great! Thank you

Hello, My Herald theme on Wordpress is showing that it’s the latest updated version (2.3.3), but now the text is really tiny when I open the editor (this happened to me in December and I was told to disable Gutenburg Editor plugin, which I did).

See screenshot here: https://secretsofparis.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Screenshot-933-1.png

The text on the page is “default” setting.

I can’t see the answer to my ticket, the link you gave me sends me to a “helpscout” page that asks for a login…I don’t have a login.

MeksTeam Author Team

Hello,

First of all sorry for the wrong link, I should have sent you a screenshot of the response https://www.screencast.com/t/Nin51tRD instead of the HelpScout link.

As I’ve said you can try to download again the theme folder from the TF, activate it on your site, and check this problem again.

If after that you still have a problem, please send us a regular support ticket, and our support team will do everything they can to help you: https://mekshq.com/contact#support.

Thanks for understanding.

​Best regards, ​Meks team

Okay, will do, thanks!

And one more thing is “Herald Posts widget” even exist anymore in the new versions?

MeksTeam Author Team

Hi,

First of all sorry for the late response.

Regarding the Additional code, you should go to the Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.

Regarding the Herald Post widget, after the theme update, you should activate the Herald buddy plugin (Appearance > Herald plugins). Then you will get again the Herald post widget.

Hope this will be helpful.

If you have any further questions or requests, please send us a new support ticket and we will be there to help you: https://mekshq.com/contact/#support ​ Best regards, Meks team

In the browser when placing in the percentage above 100%, for example 110% or 125%, the sidebar is unconfigured, exceeding the page. Do you have a solution?

MeksTeam Author Team

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us.

I’m afraid no. We have built our theme to looks well in full hd resolution 1920×1080px and in the browser on 100%.

If this is something important or urgent for you, we’re cooperating with a dedicated team of developers, and you can reach out to them if you want them to create any feature specifically for your needs. If you are interested, please check the following link: https://wpkraken.io/?ref=meks

Note that sending a theme customization request is completely free of charge and you can later decide whether you want to accept the offer or not.

Is it possible to have social sharing icons only on free posts, and no social sharing icons on premium posts?

MeksTeam Author Team

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest.

I’m sorry, but I’m not quite sure what you’re referring to. Do you want to use a membership plugin, so you can create free and premium posts?

If that is correct, it can be done, most probably, with some minor CSS adjustments.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Meks team

Hello, can I change the domain without problems?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us, and thank you for your interest.

There is no reason for you to have any problems. It is a pretty simple procedure. Just reach out to your hosting agency and ask for a domain change, and they’ll do that for you.

If you’re referring to Envato policy(one theme license per domain), you don’t need to worry. This policy instructs you to use one theme license per domain, but you can always change the domain, of course.

Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,

Meks team

Hello, thanks for the quick response, I mean if you delete the old domain from the board and change the domain to the new, there will be no problems with the theme. Thank you.

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for your reply.

That’s right, there will be no problems. The code is not related to the domain in any way. Just make sure that you do that properly, so you don’t have any issues with URLs. The best thing would be to reach out to your hosting support, and they’ll do that for you.

If you’re referring to your Envato license, all that matters is that you’re using the theme on one domain.

I hope that helps.

Hello guys! Please tell me where to configure the output of the page to the main page, so that the last entries are not displayed. I can’t find it in the reading section((((((

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us.

Can you please give us some more details about the request? A screenshot or some kind of visual reference would be great.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you,

Meks team

thanks for the reply. I solved the problem on my own!

Hi there,

I’d like to purchase Herald and set up my website completely new with it while using Elementor.

So, I have two questions about it:

1. There is a option to add new Elementor Templates out of a library. But it looks like, the templates are just pages. No singel-post templates.

Do I have to create single-post templates on my own and add them to Template-Folder? With Elementor or is it possible with Herald Settings?

2. Is there a chance to have single-posts with sidebar, where content of the sidebar is special content for that post? For example, a gallery or table of contents. Contant that is very spezial to the post.

Thanks a lot!

Alex

Greetings Alex,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your patience during our holidays.

1. I’m afraid that these kinds of settings and options are strictly Elementor options, they’re not related to the theme. I mean, you can send us a support ticket and some screenshots, so we can check out the problem, and tell you a bit more, but if there is a problem with Elementor feature, as you’ve described, we can’t act instead of them on that matter.

I can point you to their article for single post template feature:

https://elementor.com/blog/design-your-single-post-template/

2. Of course, you can do that with Herald, because you can choose a particular sidebar for each one of your posts inside the single post settings, and you can create new sidebars with Herald.

Please check screenshots on the following links:

Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi again,

last question here: I tried to have different content at the sticky sidebar for different posts. But it seems not to be possible.

Example:

Post 1 – Title “Clouds”: Sticky Sidebar having a gallery widget with 5 images of clouds and a list of 3 links in a text widget

Post 2 – Title “Ice cream”: Sticky Sidebar having a gallery widget with 10 images of ice cream and clip about how to make ice cream DIY in herald video widget.

It seems, that I have to add for each post a new sidebar at theme options to get it done. So that will work for a few posts, but what if I’ll publish 100, 300 or more posts? Will that work with a few hundred sidebars displayed at theme options???

Thanks a lot! Alex

Greetings,

Thank you for your reply.

Regarding the problem with the sticky sidebar – We’ll need some more details about this. It would be great if you can send us a regular support ticket through our support form:

https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

Regarding the sidebars – I’m afraid that there is no other way to do this in WordPress by default, generally. If you want to use different sidebars in each one of your posts, you can either create a new sidebar as instructed or create an artificial sidebar with a page builder, for example, but in that case, you can’t use widgets.

Some plugins can help you in the process, though. Please check this article here:

https://winningwp.com/best-wordpress-plugins-for-sidebars-and-widgets/

This free plugin here, for example, allows you to show some particular widgets in one set of posts and hide it for another:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-options/

That way, you can even create one sidebar with many widgets and choose where you want to show that particular widget.

I hope that helps.

I sent pre-sale question through your website 2 days ago. I haven’t gotten a response.

I need to know if I can use ad management plugins with the Herald theme? If so, do you recommend any? I need to run a variety of ads in different posts / pages. And, I need to take payments, etc. I know there are plugins for this. I need to know before purchasing whether I will have any conflicts.

PLEASE RESPOND. I need to make a decision on a theme and get going. Thanks.

Greetings,

Sorry, but we don’t have any messages older than one day in our mailbox currently.

I suppose that there was some mistake or a temporary problem with the form.

Please note that we’re not working regularly during the weekend, since we also need some time to rest.

Regarding the question – the theme by itself has a lot of ad boxes, and you’ll be able to check them in Theme Options > Ads. You can place any AdSense scripts in there, or you can use plain images. You can also use our Meks Easy Ads widget.

Taking payments from ads revenue is not really something that you’re doing on your website. You’re resolving this either on your Google AdSense account or some of the alternative ad script sources and services.

If you’re referring to some other type of payment – please tell us what you want to achieve to give you appropriate advice on that matter. The theme is generally managing your website design and look, and some related to that particular niche, in this case, magazine niche.

My personal suggestion would be to check Herald for free.

Just follow this link here: http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=herald&testdrive.

Feel free to share any feedback or ask just about anything theme-related. :)

Best regards,

Meks team

Hi,

I think there is a bug : The filter by user role to display authors isn’t working anymore on modules or authors pages.

Thank you for your help, Best Regards

Can you please send us a regular support ticket with some more details (some screenshot or some example from the web would be helpful) through this form here, and our support team will help you with that:

I see on the main demo there is a side-scrolling carousel (or category). The arrows allow you to navigate to content off screen.

1. Is this standard with the them? Very easy to select? We want multiple rows on our homepage operating in a side-scrolling carousel to avoid clutter.

2. Can we do this with just photos or HTML code columns? If we wanted a series of 10-12 images to be able to scroll to the side, with each image linking off (not a product, but similar to WooCommerce in demo).

3. The “Modules” option looks limiting. How customizable can you make home and landing pages with the built-in features?

4. It appears a number of themes are having navigation issues with iOS (Apple). Is your mobile layout menu working properly on that operating system or have you seen issues?

Thank you for your time.

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us, and thank you for your patience during the weekend.

Regarding 1. and 2 – Can you please share an example link with us to have a visual reference of that slider? We have multiple sliders on our demo.

3. The modules have multiple options for post-selection and appearance. There are dozens of post layouts and available actions.

4. We don’t have any similar feedback. If you want, you send us a screenshot of the problem so we can check.

I would also like to invite you to test-drive our theme for free. Just follow this link here:

http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=herald&testdrive

Feel free to share any feedback or ask just about anything theme-related.

hello Suppoting Team Can Tell me how many time i can use this theme, Because after 2 Times used it, in this post module button not worked

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us.

As we’re selling our themes on Envato, we’re obligated to follow their rules of trade. The official Envato policy states that you can use one theme per one domain. That means that you’ll need two themes for two domains, but that also means that you can have more than one installation if you’re using a subdomain.

So, this is the only legal channel where you can buy the theme:

https://themeforest.net/item/herald-news-portal-magazine-wordpress-theme/13800118

I hope that brought some clearance on the topic.

Best regards,

Meks team
