Hi, Zerge,

How can I close the views and likes statistics functions? These statistics are how the work, affect the concurrent connection?

Because my site recently returned a lot 503 error, godaddy suggested I review the coding to ensure that connections are closed.

If you do not bother, please help to check my website http://ideasgn.com/

Thank you!


The “views” feature used standard WordPress function – update_post_meta.

You can easily disable this feature, just remove in the file content-single.php:


Zerge wanted to know which technique to use the theme to incorporate videos in posts, especially when you choose to post video.

Custom iframe code.


I see you mention compatibility for WP 4.0 but the theme has not been updated in more than a year – are you really sure it’s fully compatible? I’m flirting with your theme but I’m not sure how to take the lack of updates; is it simply bugfree or are you planning to discontinue development for NewsTrick?

No hate!

All the best, Mel

Hi Mel,

Of course, we have tested it with WP 4.0 and didn’t find any bugs.

And we plan to release an update soon (within 1-2 weeks)

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

Hi Zerge! The theme is awesome ;) I’ve been using the widgets with standar post but now there is a new challenge, How can i activate it for custom post types? Thanks in advance ;)

Try to play with parameters (taxonomy) for this part of code:

<?php $categories = get_categories('hide_empty=0&depth=1&type=post'); ?>

It works! We are so close ;) Now i can choose categories of my custom post type but when i selected some specific category doesn’t show anything in the frontend. I tried several times but i can’t get it :( Help. I appreciate your time, has been a great support ;)

You can use “echo” to control (debug) the values of your variables.

If I buy this theme, can you make blog/post layout or template, category, tag, and searching will be looked grid view 2 coloumns? example:

Feature pic 1 Feature pic 2

Post name 1 Post name 2

Feature pic 3 Feature pic 4

Post name 3 Post name 4


Of course it’s possible after some development/customization work.

But unfortunately we do not provide development/customization service.

You can hire someone who can make these changes for you.

I would like to add a search box in the upper range. However, I work with the demo layout and the normal search box will appear on the whole page. What can i do? Thanks Ralf

on the left side -

one more question if I want to change the linkurl of the headerlogo i have to change the header right? (a href=”<?php echo home_url(); ?>”> ? many thanks Ralf

1. Try to place search box below this part of code:

<!-- .banner -->

in the file header.php

2. Replace only this:

<?php echo home_url(); ?>

Thanks for the theme. I have a few questions for you to complete the installation.

1) I selected to use the top sticky menu in the Theme Options but it is not saving.

2) Is there a way to randomize the posts like the slider in all of the widgets instead of just displaying as one same post all the time? This is something big that I thought the option would be there but unfortunately was not :/

3) Is there any way to align the headers of the widgets to the left side instead of the right on all of them?

Can I contact you via email?



1. Can you show me this on your site?

2. For this you need to change some code in the theme files. For example, need to add the parameter orderby for WP_Query – http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

3. Add to the style.css:

.widget-title {
left: -1px;
right: inherit;

Thanks for the quick response. I would rather not display my URL here, can I send you an email?

Yes. Send me a message through my profile

What infinite scroll plugin is this theme compatible with?

Yes. Just deactivate preload feature.

I’ve done this and that is what I said did not work in the previous message. I am trying my best to fix this via CSS but it is your theme and I would hope to see you provide the support needed since this is a universal issue. Thank you.

It seems you doing something wrong or your settings is incorrect. I need access to WP admin panel. Send me a message through my profile


i would like to have an option to change the backgroundcolour of textwidgets maybe just one new textwidget with different colour then normal.I know that needs some coding, please infor me what are the costs if you prog this option, Thanks Ralf

Hi Ralf,

It will cost 25$

I would like to use ANY of the sliders but many of my featured images aren’t the same size, which causes it to expand in height to the original size of the image. Is there a way to set the dimensions to one default size so it doesn’t expand like this? Thanks.

Can you show me this on your site?

Sent a message.

Hey Zerge, is there a way to use the 3 column homepage structure but have one of the columns be the original column size and the other the smaller one like this: http://screencast.com/t/V6AXegves – thanks.

Great, thanks for the help :)

Memoria Visible .com finally got your theme for his site. I’m very happy to tell you this because i recomend your theme to the memoriavisible.com non profit project years ago. Is funny, today you got other themes that i prefer, but this is just fine. Your work remaince in force.

Thanks ;-)

hi, Zerge. there is a problem whith the site www.memoriavisible.com after the instalatión of newstrick, the post dont save the sound, video or gallery formats… we select sound and when saved, they appear starndard post. I try to access to de support platform and i can’t create the account.

is done… please check

Sorry for your time, the theme was fine, the problem was that godaddy has a particular way of working that does not warn when resources are exhausted for wordpress … we almost go crazy looking for the error. many functions wordpress stalled without warning, that was what happened. By an unfortunate coincidence happened just minutes after installing the theme. Thank you for the support, everything is running.

Hi Zerge, i got a cuestion about the sound post format and soundcloud. Is posible to have the new (full image in the back ground) style? i got a white space, dont look good.


Solved, i got to change the embed code to the new one… thanks.

Hi, Zerge,

i want to hide the header banner when the screen is less than 728px… is posible?


Add in the file style.css above the section @media (max-width: 600px) {...}

@media  (max-width: 728px) { 
        .banner { display:none; }

Hello! I’ve upgraded to Apache 2.4 and now my home page won’t work. Other pages are working as normal. Is this something you’ve seen a problem with?


Can you show me this on your site?
