I just updated to wordpress 3.05 and now the menus changed. In fact, I do not see the menu manager for newscast, and wordpress tells me that the theme only has 1 menu available. For that reason, when I add a category to that menu, it shows up twice. Any suggestions? Thanks.


I am thinking about this Newscast layout for my magazine. I have a few questions:

1. Is it possible to embed YouTube videos?

2. It says the design comes with different slideshows, which ones are those?

I look forward to your reply.

All best,


Does this come with sample content?

Hi, I just purchased newscast and I can’t seem to get the the same lay-out as your theme showing me as in the example:

instead of all the 5 animations (pictures) on the frontpage, I see only one with no picture, and only a moving gif, and this is referring to the preload.gif, for all the themes.

What am I doing wrong?

Upadte released!!

Hey everyone, I just released an update for the theme that fixes several bugs that occur in wordpress 3.1. I highly recommend to update the theme :)

Need Support?

Support for all my themes is available only at the support forum I’ve setup at my website:

The reason I have choosen to use my own forum are quite simple:

Themeforest support threads are not searchable. Since most questions are asked over and over again a searchable forum will make it possible that you dont even need to wait for my response, because its already there.

Second Reason: people can’t respond to each other at themeforest to help each other out, while I am busy with other tasks.

Third Reason: it is very inconvenient for me to check multiple places if support requests where made (here at themeforest, my themeforest mail account, my websites mail account, facebook group, twitter etc) Therefore I decided to channel those requests at one place and make it available to everyone so all of you guys can benefit.

Is it possible to buy the accordion slider only and use in a different theme?

I just purchased the theme in hopes of retrieving the accordion script and implementing it on a different theme. I don’t need the accordion to pull in live feeds or anything like that. All I need are 3 images and the text to do the same thing as in your theme. Is it possible to guide me to the right folders and files from which I need to pull the code from.


Where I can get update for theme?

Click on “my account”, then “downloads” and just re download it :)

Thanks…. man:-))

Kriesi forgot to announce it here so i’ll comment on the fact that the theme is updated again to support IE9 :)

Thanks! The slider works again.

Thanks for beeing my herald ;D


thank you for your theme. I like it.

I have a question regarding the RSS . I would like to configure my website.How I do that ?

I suppose I have to change the code: “feed” ?

Thanks in advance. Pierre

I just purchased this theme and when adding posts/pages, I do not see the “post Thumbnail Box” where I can set the thumbnail. I only see the “Post Thumbnail Options”. Am I missing something? You can see a screenshot of the side panel here –

I am working on this now so any help as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated!

I could really use your assistance with my above post. I need to set thumbnails and this option is not displayed.

I apologize for posting here but your support system is not allowing me to register even with my valid purchase id #.

Hi Kriesi,

I like your theme very much. However, I like to ask if the 2 columns are widgets, and whether they can be reduced to 1 column instead. By having 2 columns, I feel that the left section of content looks rather compressed.

Please advise, before I proceed with a purchase.

Cheers, Jason

Hello, I cant register on your forum even tho I have a valid purchase code. So I will ask for support here then:

My small menu “First” and big menu “second” in the top of the page are not correctly framed. You can check on

I tried uninstaling and installing the theme again and again, deleting and re setuping the menus, did not work.

Please help!

Hello Kriesi. I’m having problem with showing widgets in the custom sidebars that that I set up for categories in Newscast Settings / Sidebars & Footer. What’s even more confusing is that the widgets show in some Category sidebars and in others they don’t. Please help. Let me know where to send temp credentials. Thank you

This theme is great once you notice not to“insert into post” but select “Use as featured image” when selecting the image.

I bought this theme today and I cannot add a thumbnail or get the slider to work. The “Set Thumbnail” from the documentation is nowhere to be found.

Please help.


hello, very beautiful and powerful theme.

before purchasing it i need to know if the “NEWS SLIDER ” mode can be set as autoplay. i see that it changes slide only when you click on the specific news. is it possible to customize it and make it autoplay?

it's a very important function for me and i need to know it before buying your theme. thank you very much
