Hello, everyone!

I’m Max Hetfeld, the developer of Bekento themes and i want to make an official announcement.

As you already know new version of WordPress with Gutenberg editor just went live. You probably have a lot of questions about how to add featured posts now as the checkbox disappeared and when Gutenberg block editor will be fully supported with all the available blocks.

I want to make clear that the work is on the way since October, and in a week or two there will be a major theme release with all the Gutenberg requirements, i just want to make sure everything works correctly without any issues on frontend and editor sides for the best experience.

Until then i recommend installing Classic Editor plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/

Classic Editor is an official plugin by WordPress team, and will be maintained until at least 2022, so just in case you won’t like the new theme version you can easily stay on previous version and use the classic editor instead of Gutenberg.

You can also follow me on Twitter for latest updates https://twitter.com/maxhetfeld

Thank you for your patience and choosing Bekento themes and hope you will have a great holidays!

Hi. Just installed Norway into Wordpress. Do you have any tutorial videos on how to use the theme? For example, I’m trying to organize my home page into three posts (similar to template image shown on theme forest), with photos for each post.

Hello, TedPage2025!

Unfortunately, currently there are no videos, because WordPress 5.0 changed the default editor to Gutenberg, but it is very easy to add the featured post.

Edit post you want to feature and click the “Top Featured” just above the “Publish / Update” button.

In case you will need additional help feel free to contact me at support@bekento.space

Hello, I want to get the theme but ı have a questions. Have I not seen the banner areas? I want to publish HTML ad slots.

Hello, NoyanK!

Theme indeed does not have any banner areas, but I can help you set them up depending on the plugin you are using

Hi Max!

Love the Norway theme so much. I would like to have my logo in the header, centered and in-line with the elements in the header. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance.

Michael

Hello, Michael!

Do you want to have all header elements in one line with logo centered?

Please send me a message with access to your WordPress admin panel at support@bekento.space and i will help you with this :)

Max

Hello, Michael

I want to know did you receive my email with reply?

Hi, could you please let me know how to make all of the social network links (e.g. in the header and footer) open in a new window? Thanks

Hello, danny2305!

You can paste this code snippet in Appearance > Editor > js (folder) > site.js on the 6th line, just after the “Initializing scripts”

    $('a')
        .filter('[href^="http"], [href^="//"]')
        .not('[href*="' + window.location.host + '"]')
        .attr('rel', 'noopener noreferrer')
        .attr('target', '_blank');

This should make all external links open in new tab :)

Max

Fantastic, thank you :)

Hello, I contact you because since the new update of Wordpress which includes a visual editor, I have encountered difficulties. With this new visual editor, I no longer know how to make my new articles appear on the home page in “featured image in the header”.

Thank you for your help !

Hello, Patriwine!

To fix this you can install the Classic Editor plugin by WordPress: https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/

Theme update with new visual editor support is coming soon, sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello,

I have not been able to install the Instgram plugin. I am getting an error message that says “Something went wrong with the plugin API.”

Is there an updated plugin that I need to install? How can I get this working? All other plugins installed with ease.

Thanks

Hello, Chipthegreat!

Currently working on fixing this issue. Instagram plugin was removed by WordPress developers from official repository.

Max

Hello, Chipthegreat!

I’ve found the solution. You can download plugin from official Github account of author: https://github.com/scottsweb/wp-instagram-widget/archive/master.zip

And install it using Appearance > Add New > Upload Plugin > “Select downloaded file” > Install Now

After you’ve done installing click “Activate”.

This should work for now. Soon i will release updated version of theme that will fix this error.

I’m really sorry for this issue, in case you will need additional help you can contact me at support@bekento.space

Hi there,

How do I make this

a h1 instead of h2 please?

Thanks. Dan

this piece of code -> h2 class=’post-title’

Hello, Danny!

Just edit the file content-single.php in Appearance > Editor and change the code at line 9 from:

        <h1 class="post-title">
            <?php the_title(); ?>
        </h1>

to:

        <h2 class="post-title">
            <?php the_title(); ?>
        </h2>

This should help :)

Hello, is it compatible with wordpress 5.0.3? And it will be compatible with future versions of WP? If yes, when 5.0.x will be available?

Please be honest, with other theme i wait 2 years for “coming soon version”. I see that Your last update was few months ago. If that I can not buy it :( thanks!

Hello, gyrafka!

It will be updated in this month after all the Gutenberg support tests will be done :)

Hi there, just wondering if you are planning an update that allows the featured post to work with the new WordPress editor? Thanks!

Just saw the previous comment, apologies. Ignore this :)

Hello, rspeak!

I’m actually trying to make new Gutenberg theme version as close to perfect experience as possible, so it takes time (a little longer than i expected).

Estimated release time – last week of this month. You will be notified by email when the new version will be available.

Hi- I cannot seem to change the font on my homepage header – The title of my blog. In WP I go to appearance, customize, then choose my font. When I publish it does not show up on the site. I’ve talked to Blue Host and they could not figure out why it was doing this so they recommended contacting you. The font I want is called Fredericka the great. Are there some fonts that won’t work with this Norway theme? Thank you very much. Sheri

Hello, Sheri!

Can you contact me at support@bekento.space with access to your WordPress admin panel

I will try to figure out what is causing this and fix it :)
