Hello,

We bought a couple of instances of your Newsmag theme, which is excellent by the way. Congratulations to the team!

Newsmag vs. Newspaper We are looking for the best theme to relaunch our website soon: could you please confirm if Newspaper is more suited for monetisation (custom ads, category ads, sponsored articles) and community engagement (buddy press integration)?

On the back of your neat admin interface and feature-set, we’d be happy to buy Newspaper if you reckon it is a step up in terms of features and customisation.

1. Sponsored content In Newsmag, we couldn’t find an obvious/easy way to create ads for specific categories or tags, and automatically add a ‘sponsored by + logo’ at the top of sponsored articles: would you have any suggestions? Maybe an additional plugin?

2. Newsletter promotion Would you say Newspaper is better suited to promote newsletter subscriptions on the site? BTW, we are hoping WPForms would integrate well with your themes?

3. BuddyPress integration Again, would you say Newspaper offers even better bb integration within the theme?

THANK YOU in advance for your precious answers which will help us decide if it makes sense to purchase Newspaper, stick with Newsmag or opt for a competitor’s viral theme (b____r) to maximise community engagement.

Kind regards Christophe

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in our themes. Both themes have an ad system you can use for monetization but the newspaper theme allows more in depth customization for the ads since you can use the cloud library template to create separate templates with separate ads applying them to the posts, categories, or other WP templates of you choice: https://tagdiv.com/what-is-the-cloud-library/ Also the new ad box element allows you to have an infinite number of custom ads: https://tagdiv.com/ad-box-newspaper-theme/ newsmag is a lighter versions for the minimalist type of magazine theme with not too many complicated features. You can still create cool layouts with newsmag though if you want the lighter approach.

2. For newsletter promotion, both themes share the same functionality.

3. The same goes for Buddypress. There is no major difference between the 2 themes regarding this plugin.

Thank you! Bogdan B

Hi Bogdan,

Thank you for your all your responses so far.

Could you please confirm how easy it would be to display custom fields within the template?

We’d like to display a leading category, other categories, location and so on… exactly like this website: https://www.finextra.com/newsarticle/33694/us-bank-names-bbvas-derek-white-chief-digital-officer?utm_source=Blockchain+Ecosytem+Insights

Kind regards Christophe

PS: happy Easter!

Hello,

It depends on what the filed is and what it should do. You can add custom fields to posts but there is no option in the tagdiv composer to use the custom filed added, Sorry. We do not have any specific custom field implementation at the moment. But it depends on what you need to achieve as there are alternatives to implementing custom content into posts or pages using the tagDiv composer page builder.

Thank you! Bogdan B

Hi,

I’m getting the following error “Did you disable any TagDiv plugins? We’ve got some errors at loading API files. It could happen because of a disabled TagDiv plugin!”

I’ve removed all Tagdiv components for a clean installation but the error just wouldn’t go

What’s going on?

Hi,

The Newspaper theme update brings a change for the theme implementation. When you’ll be updating to the Newspaper 9.7 version, you’ll need to activate the tagDiv Composer to keep the Newspaper theme functionality you’ve previously used. Otherwise, you will have basic WordPress functionality, complying with Envato WordPress Requirements – https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000472383-WordPress-Theme-Requirements Please read this article we wrote on the new update https://tagdiv.com/updating-the-core-of-tagdiv-themes/ to learn what it changes and what you must do in order to keep the functionality intact.

Thank you for understanding!

Is there any way to use [shortcut] as a data source for the Blocks in visual composer? ( or tagdiv composer)

Hi,

Thank you for reaching us! Please notice that each of our blocks has a shortcode generated which can be added inside a post editor or a column text. If you want to check what kind of shortcode you are using after you have visual add a simply block, you need to Edit the page like this -> https://www.screencast.com/t/mv2yLm4Uh -> https://www.screencast.com/t/yjCNLPhaJ4 Please notice that we do not have a list with all of our shortcodes element, sorry! If is not what you mean and if you want more assistance in this case, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/

Hi Catalin and Thanks for your reply What i am meaning is the exact opposite case, for example i need to use the shortcut of another pluging and load postes on Block . please see the below :

https://prnt.sc/ne45pf

Hello,

Sorry but unfortunately you cannot mix 2 shortcodes together. You cannot place one shortcode inside another shortcode. If you want to use shortcodes in our theme please use the “column text” element to implement them. But do not place them inside the block shortcodes manually as it will break the block shortcode.

If you need further assistance our support team will be happy to help with any requests on our official support forum at https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/

Hello friends, please help me with this

1. how can I do so that the editor A, can not edit the post of the editor B, C, D, I have put them as User “Author”, but instead can not access their own previous publications.

2. Something strange has happened, the editor chooses the ad category, but when publishing it, it appears in the default section “Without category”, what should I do to solve this?

Hi vinihg,

1)In this case, you should put to your users the Editor and not the Author as role and capabilities. The Editor can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users and also, the Author can publish and manage their own posts. For more details about Roles and Capabilities in Wordpress, please check here -> https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities 2)Notice that, by default, the Wordpress add the Uncategorized category, if no category has been added to the post. You need to add a category for that post from here -> https://www.screencast.com/t/DY3nt1g7Xg If is not what you mean, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ and provide more details about your problem.

Thank you for message! Catalin L.

LoL One of us is NOT getting it… Either I am retarded or a SLOW learner…

Listen!

I’ve done all what you said, but no LUCK! I’ve DELETED the PLUGIN, visited the PLUGIN area, UPDATED all the PLUGINS…

All I get is version 1.2 of the mobile plugin…

Can you email me a newer version than 1.2?

HI,

In this case, it could be a problem with the plugin installation. You already have the correct plugin included in the theme package you are trying to install. This could be another issue altogether, not an incorrect theme or plugin version. Please contact us via email at contact@tagdiv.com and provide wp-admin so we can login to your site and investigate why this is happening.

Thank you! Bogdan B

Hello,

This could be a plugin conflict so please disable all plugins except the page builder, clear cache and reset cdn files if you use it. Please also check any custom code you might have added to the theme panel or the theme files. If you use a child theme, please switch to the main theme to make sure it does not affect the proper functionality of the theme.

If you need further assistance our support team will be happy to help with any requests on our official support forum at http://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newsmag/

Thank you! Bogdan B

After update all sharing buttons disappeared, I need to buy another theme from serious folks.

Hi,

In this case, I suggest you temporarily use another single template or create another one with Cloud Template Library, according to our documentation from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/tagdiv-cloud-library-plugin/ It seems to be a mini-bug with our single post template default and we hope to fix this as soon as possible in near future updates. If you need more assistance in this case, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/

Hi, I just installed the latest newspaper update and the tagdiv composer plugin keeps causing a 500 http error on my site

Thank you! Increasing the memory definitely fixed it.

Hi there does this theme come with revolution slider and WP Bakery Page Builder (visual composer)? I would also like to add a list of users with links to these user profiles on the right side. Is this possible? Is there a widget for this?

Hi Tallmale,

Thank you for your interests in our theme! Yes, our theme comes bundled with these plugins. Also, if you want to use a list of users with links, you need to use the Authors Box from here -> https://www.screencast.com/t/ttjNgJoA from our tagDiv Composer page builder. For more details about our page builder, pleae check here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/tagdiv-composer-tutorial/

Thank you! Catalin L.

Hi there I made a mistake what I would like to show on the right side column is a list of pages with just the text link of each page (No images). I would like to position this in the third column at the top just under the slider/top header image. How can this be done?

2) If you add a slider at the top of the page (top header image) can you make the slider width bigger?

3) Can you use other plugins with your page builder?

4) If you choose a layout with three columns can you make the total width of the three columns wider? So they are full page.

Many thanks

Hello,

1) Sure!. You can also make a list of pages by using creating a custom list using the tagdiv composer elements.

2) Yes, you can select a different width for each row in particular so by adding your slider on a separate row, you can select a different width for it.

3) Sorry but we have only tested our tagDiv composer page builder which is required for the proper functionality of the theme. We have not tested other page builder

4) Yes, you can have a full page layout on any number of columns.

Thank you! Bogdan B

Hi, just update themes and it’s very take long respond to loading. Th themes is very weight. I use VPS but my web is very weight and alwasy get 500 server error. Just downgrade the themes. Thanks.

Hi Hervansin,

Thanks for using our theme! Please check the system status parameters to be increased according to our documentation from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/system-status-parameters-guide/ If the problem persists, please refer to the following guides for possiile fixes from here -> https://wordpress.org/support/topic-tag/505-error/ https://forum.tagdiv.com/topic/wp-supercache-causes-500-internal-error-and-cannot-deactivate/ https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-the-internal-server-error-in-wordpress/https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/218378978-What-should-I-do-after-seeing-a-502-or-504-gateway-error-on-my-site-https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003011431-5xx-Server-Errorhttps://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200171906-Error-522-Connection-timed-outhttps://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200171936-Error-520-Web-server-is-returning-an-unknown-error

I want to megamenu not show sub-categories. ($td_subcategories=get_categories(array(‘child_of’ => $category_id)); become $td_subcategories=get_categories(array(‘parent’ => $category_id));)

Hello,

I’ve just updated to Newspaper 9.7 and it all looks great; however I’ve lost my extra custom ad spots I previously created in includes > td_config.php. Where are these now stored and where can I add new ones please?

thanks in advance.

Hello,

The customization you made in the previous theme version will have to be re-applied as the theme files were moved into the tagdiv composer plugin.

The Newspaper theme update brings a change for the theme implementation.

When you’ll be updating to the Newspaper 9.7 version, you’ll need to activate the tagDiv Composer to keep the Newspaper theme functionality you’ve previously used.

Otherwise, you will have basic WordPress functionality, complying with Envato WordPress Requirements – https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000472383-WordPress-Theme-Requirements

Please read this article we wrote on the new update https://tagdiv.com/updating-the-core-of-tagdiv-themes/

Thank you for understanding! Bogdan B

Hello,

this cant be true. How about seeing you first? An update must and should always be such that there are no conflicts and destruction of other plugins. Otherwise it does not make sense. Otherwise, mn would have to reorganize everything in the current operation of a website and delete plugins. That would cost visitor numbers and users. And therefore money. Power as I said no sense.

The error code I have shown above yes. Everything was fine before the update. Everything went fine before the update. Everything has been carefully selected and matched.

As I wrote in another forum post, the video playlist does not work anymore. There is also an error in the video player shown.

My configuration has not changed at all. As mentioned above, everything went fine before the update. After the update should I have changed the configuration? A little illogical and not nice to the customer.

I have a Managed Server with 1000GB SSD, 4xCore, 64GB DDR RAM, PHP 7.3.3

Peak values, peak performance.

And again, as previously mentioned, everything ran smoothly.

Please take care of it quickly and fix it.

Video Playlist error and Flag Error.

As for the playlist element, I have just tested it again on my end but we are not experiencing any such issues.

I would like to make suggestions for your theme under this topic.

1 – Is there a short way to add google maps into your post? Can you add it if you don’t? Also it is very important to add the title to the iframe code for SEO. You can also add the hashmap schema code to this map.

Hello.

Our theme does not provide any specific google maps implementation. You will need to ue plugins in order to implement google maps. the functionality is provided by the plugin you use so you will have to find a plugin that can provide the options mentioned.

Thank you! Bogdan B

Hi. After updating on the new 9.7 version the new posts that I upload do not have the sharing buttons. Every post that was created before the update has the sharing buttons normally. I disabled and enabled the option from theme panel but nothing changed. Please fix it. (I have for the moment the solusion of an third party plugin). Thanx

Hello,

Sorry for the inconvenience. We will fix this in the next theme update which is due to come out the following days for various fixes regarding the 9.7 update including the sharing buttons. For a quick solution until the new update comes out, please follow this forum topic: https://forum.tagdiv.com/topic/after-update-to-9-7-without-share-buttons-on-posts/ You will need a forum account in order to access the link though.

Thank you! Bogdan B

and how about the Show related Article ?

1- I’ve added some custom codes to the td_config file. (like this: https://prnt.sc/ne2bl6) how and where do I add these codes in the new theme?

2- I have some archive, loop and single files. Will these files work in the new system? (like: archive-akilli-saatler.php – loop-tabletler-1.php)

3- I have some shortcodes. Will they work in the new system?

Thanks

Hi,

I have once Question, why you avoid to put an arabic version for your theme?

Hello,

The RTL version of the theme is not an easy implementation and at the moment there is no viable solution to be found apart from creating 2 separate versions of the theme. If we find a solution without creating a second theme specifically for RTL, we will implement it into our themes but at the moment we have not found one that is suitable.

Thank you for understanding. Bogdan B
