I think it would be cool like if you could add example code for the demo you have.

For me it’s not quite intuitive what to do. For example I see the demo, and I said to myself, I want the layout to be like that. But…how?

I could play around testing the shortcodes, but it consumes time. If I rate the product I will give 4 star. 5 stars only if I could understand how to use the product easily and fast.

Next, my questions are: 1) I’m not sure how to use the columns parameter. 2) http://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/demo-5/ How to create the first row? It looks like using the tabs, and how to take 2/3 of the column width?

Hi,

Thanks for the kind words. Everyone is looking for demos so these will be included asap. The main point is that these pages were made using the Cornerstone builder, which of course means nothing to you. The columns are of course made within the builder itself and are not a part of the Newscodes, which relies on either your themes column shortcodes or the Visual Composer and Cornerstone Builder systems. As all have asked for this I’ll add the demos asap as noted. A few days from now, thanks for being patient!

It would be highly appreciated if there is tutorial to explain how the demos are made.

Hi,

Yes, everyone is looking for these. Demos will be added in a day or two. I’ve realized that using the plugin without the content builders is a bit hard. Please be patient. Thanks for your purchase!

Thank you~ Please let me know when it’s available.

How to use style. I’ve created a style and set the parameter with the shortcode. style=”juan-keren”. But it doesn’t seem to take any effect. The color and the font still the same as default?

OK,

Sorry about the delay. I’m glad your good with the preset slugs and names (name them like my-preset-name-1 and you won’t go wrong any time).

For the second issue, yes there is. But since Newscodes tries to implement these, it can only be coded away. For this you’ll need to contact me via my profile page using the form at the bottom. Thanks for you purchase!

Kind regards,

For the first issue, it wasn’t the slug name problem. On the settings I selected the group style, which is juan.css. Now I select default.css. I’m not quite understand what the group style for.

For the second issue, I’ve used another social share plugin. So, we can ignore it.

Hi,

Well groups are here to help you. Because if you had to many styles within one group and with all the resources used within these styles (fonts and LESS compiling) I’ve just had to split these up. So, basically the whole idea is that you have a group that you use on your site, which resources are loaded on the frontend, and also have as many groups as you like that just hold your styles and are not used on the frontend, but only for editing or creating new styles. I hope this sounds reasonable. Thanks!

can the shortcode be used on text widget?

Hi,

Sorry about the late answer.

Yes, it can, but your theme needs to support this. If it doesn’t you can add this piece of code to your child theme/themes functions.php file.

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

This should do the trick! Thanks for your purchase!

Hello,

When using [nc_factory type=”news-columned-featured-list” filters=”category” filter_terms=”3925”] and viewed on my page, the “pagination” when clicked, doesn’t “scroll” back to the top of the page.

IE, if I click page 2, it doesn’t scroll back up naturally. It just stays (on page 2) where I actually clicked, and I have to manually scroll up to see the posts.

I hope this makes sense. :)

Well, actually yes. This feature will be added in the next Newscodes! Please be patient and thanks for your purchase hope that you like the plugin!

Kind regards,

Alright. Thanks for the speedy reply.

I shall look forward to the next update. :)

I bought this plugin and do not know how to use. A video tutorial or are shortcuts codes ???

Hi,

Have you read the documentation? There’s a pretty good explanation. And here’s the online link for it http://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/documentation/ Please do read this as it will be helpful to you a lot. If you still can’t figure anything out after you read this then come back and I’ll help. Video will be released shortly. Thanks!

Hi there,

Is there an option for a zoom on featured image hover effect?

Thanks.

Thanks for that. I have managed to create the effect, but the Image is not responding to ‘overflow: hidden’ :/

No problem i have fixed! Newscodes looks even better now :)

Hi,

Thanks for understanding. The Newscodes will be packed with elements and styles, and more shortcode generating options (probably a backend in the Newscodes directly), but the hovers will not be added. As I said, there will be an extension that will cover this, and you’ll have all sorts of hovers in it. But, for now, we’re making a quality News/Magazine system, and this is clearly not needed in the original package. Thanks for using and watch for the updates ;) !

Hello!

I just brought this plugin which seems amazing, but I can’t get the images to show in any of the default styles. I have attempted to create my own style, choose different rations, etc, and as of yet, the images refuse to show at all. How can I get the images to show? It seems to be pulling in the featured images, but you can’t see them at all. Why would this be occurring?

Hi,

Clearly you’re not using the type parameter in your shortcode, as this defines the type of layout you want to show. Now, here’s the link http://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/documentation/#shortcodes-sjdgh with the shortcode parameters and just check the types that you have. Some don’t have images, because they’re too simple, as it is the case with the default code. Thanks for understanding and your kind words! Please do contact me further if you need more help.

Kind regards,

Hello Dzeriho! That is strange because I am using it via visual composer. Im not using it the shortcake way. Should I provide you with login info to see it?

Hi,

Can you just send me a link to a page that shows the shortcode? You can do it via my profile page too http://codecanyon.net/user/dzeriho Thanks!

Hi. I have a problem with translate. I translated in Loco some words after adding new language, saved and checked on the server, looks fine, but still no changes on website. Also was trying same thing with poedit, .mo .po stored with translation but no effect on the website. To be more specific I need navigation line to be translated to polish or make visible only page numbers instead of “Page 1 out of 4”

OK,

Checked, thanks for reporting it will be updated tomorrow. For now change the line 107 in your /wp-content/plugins/newscodes/newscodes.php from:

load_plugin_textdomain( 'newscodes', false, $dir . 'plugins' );

to this one:

load_plugin_textdomain( 'nwscds', false, $dir . 'plugins' );

Sorry for this bug. Thanks for understanding!

Kind regards,
mihajlovicnenad.com

works now, thx so much

Not a problem, sorry about the bug it will be fixed in the next release, so you won’t have to worry about the updates. Thanks again.

Hi there,

I managed to add review score onto the thumbnails but they seem to have gone for some reason.

https://rkade.uk.com/news/mission-impossible-rogue-nation/

The featured image shows the review score on the thumbnail. How do i make Newscodes Grab this too?

I tried putting

<?php if (function_exists(‘wp_review_show_total’)) wp_review_show_total(); ?>

In the Newscode template but no luck. Strange because it was working before :(

Hi,

Well, you’ve either uncheck it somewhere or you’ve not added it to your child theme/themes /newscodes/ folder. One of those. Have you checked the documentation on this link on how to edit templates for the loops? Here’s a link http://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/documentation/ So, you’ll need to add this function in your template override and if the function exists then the code will be added for sure.

Kind regards,
mihajlovicnenad.com

All sorted. Thanks again for your help!

Hi,

Not a problem! Thanks for using hope you like the plugin, it will be even better with the updates and extensions ;)

Hi,

I just purchased “newscodes” and wonder how to show all taxonomies under “Which Taxonomy”?

In your documentation you mention to add “post_tag” but how do I add categories, subcategories, etc.?

Thanks,

Willem

Hi,

Well, you can only show one taxonomy, you cannot show multiple taxonomies, but for the categories this parameter should be set to category, meaning which_taxonomy="category" in the shortcode paramteres. Contact me further if you need more help! Thanks for your purchase!

Kind regards,
mihajlovicnenad.com

Hi. A pre-purchase question:

Is there a setting to change the “Read More” button? In the demo all the posts have a ’+’ icon instead of a “Read more” button. I would definitely like a button or a link with the text “Read more”. Is this customisable? (Is this what the excerpt_more=”” parameter does? Or can it be set in a site-wide setting?)

Thanks Josh

Hi,

Yes, you’re right, basically you can set any “Read More” you want. But, I’ve just tested, and it doesn’t show the link, meaning it can only be text at this point. Also if you set this parameter to inherit then your theme “Read More” will be used. Also you can filter this out and make what you want. But, this is all bit of a drag, in the next release this “Read More” button will be moved to the /templates/ directory, from which you’ll be able to override it in your child theme/theme /newscodes/ directory. Contact me further if you need more information. Thanks for your interest in the Newscodes!

Hi. 1. I want to try add some css codes for hover effect but I dont have idea how or where to do it exactly. Can you point me where I can find solution for that? Srry, noob question but I rlly want to try something new and develop my acknowledge. 2. Every time when I want edit previously saved template I cant save it (update) and Im forced to save the same template in different name even in the same group. 3. Is it possible to add in future background, shadow or different color on active page button? “Page 1 out of…” Hard to see where exactly I am now

Hi,

Thanks for your contact!

1.We don’t do customizations, and the hover extension will be released at some point. I’ll guide you a bit, and this will hopefully be the answer you can work with.

.nc-post .nc-figure {transition:transform 200ms;}
.nc-post:hover .nc-figure {transform:scale(1.1);}

2. This is strange. Our test sites don’t show this issue, however, I’ve noted this and it will be tested, if the next version doesn’t solves this you’ll need to contact me directly to see the issue. You can do this on my profile page http://codecanyon.net/user/dzeriho using the form at the bottom. Thanks!

3. OK, You do have styles for pagination, also you can override any template, meaning you can copy this template to your child theme/themes corresponding directory /newscodes/ and then you can edit this the way you want. The documentation supplied with this plugin has a topic on the changing templates. Do read this part please! ;)

Contact me further if you have more questions. Thanks for using!

Kind regards,

before i buy .. Some questions 1 You say i don’t need to use the visual composer .. right ? 2 How get the shortcake on yo my pages ?? just by writing the code by hand ? thanks

Hi,

1. Yes, and 2. Yes. Some found this hard, others would find this quite easy. Be aware that you do need css/html or shortcodes for the columns too. In the future, Newscodes will have the shortcode generator in its backend, with a preview, and you’ll be able to do this much easier. But, this is planned for the future updates, and we don’t really have a time frame ;) For now, as you say writing them by hand and here’s a link to the shortcode parameters that you can check out http://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/documentation/#shortcodes-sjdgh Thanks!

Kind regards,
mihajlovicnenad.com

Thanks ,, sorry but just see a lot of tex n the link… :-( Please let me know when you have a visual shortcode generator …

OK,

Thanks for the interest! You have a free version at this link https://wordpress.org/plugins/newscodes-news-magazine-and-blog-elements/ maybe the shortcodes are not that of a trouble! ;) Try it!

Kind regards,

Hai Dzeriho, currently I see the CSS gets uploaded even where Codenews doesn’t exist, for example on blog posts. Could all files related to Codenews be set to only loaded where it appears? For optimization?

Hi,

Well, the CSS is the problem, JS isn’t. The only solution as I see it is to add more options in the Frontend Optimizations metabox, meaning that you can actually select on which pages Newscodes will load. This is the only solution that will work as expected and that it will not affect any loading speed at all. So, stay tuned. Next update! Thanks!

As a wordpress beginner I can tell your plugin is very advanced but it looks like it will do what we want. Just have to figure it out! Can you provide pointers on what to do to display woocommerce products?

Also having an issue where it is grabbing the featured image and making the grid far too large. Here is the shortcode we used.

[nc_factory type=”news-grid” style=”test1” post_type=”product” excerpt_length=”0? posts_per_page=4 columns=”2? posts_per_column=”2?pagination=”true” image_ratio=”1-1” show_date=”false” show_time=”false” show_format=”false” show_author=”false” image_size=”thumbnail”]

For some reason codecanyon changed several of the quotes to question marks. This is not how the shortcode is written. It does have all quotes.

Hi,

Sorry for the longest wait :) super busy with the updates.

1. Yes, just use the post_type="product", I’ll check why this might happen in the Visual Composer and why it wasn’t shown in the list and it will be fixed in the next update.

2. Yes, special layouts for the WooCommerce will be added in the next update. However, these default templates will not include additional functionality for the WooCommerce as it is a bit custom and we really don’t need it in there especially when you can do the following. Just read the documentation on how to override the layout template files, and then copy your news-grid.php to your /wp-content/themes/CHILD THEME OR THEME/newscodes/types/ and add something like this to the template wherever you want it, probably just after the excerpt:

global $product;
$product = new WC_Product( get_the_ID() );
wc_get_template( 'loop/add-to-cart.php' );
wc_get_template( 'loop/price.php' );

And it should be good! Anyway if this is too much, yeah the templates will be included in the next release :)

3. You might want to use more columns with the columns="3" or you might want to change the image_ratio="16-9" or similar and do state this image_size="large" for nice resolution images.

Contact me further if you need more information. Thanks for using the Newscodes!

Kind regards,

Love the options of the plugin but have a few questions – I have images in my post content and it is stripping them out. And when I try to change the_excerpt() to the_content() – the entire page breaks. Am I missing something basic?

Also – have been getting an error about running out of memory when trying to build styles.

Hi,

Did you try to change the_excerpt() to the_content() in the template itself? Because there shouldn’t be any problems there, although a lot of stuff can cause the problem. Regarding your memory problem try to increase the memory_limit.

Kind regards,

Hey. Good little plug-in. Running into an ssl error with your icon.

https://mihajlovicnenad.com/newscodes/wp-content/plugins/newscodes/lib/images/vc-icon.png Failed to load resource:

Failed to load resource: net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR.

Thx..

Hi,

Thank you for reporting this, we will look into it.

Hi, can you give me the xml pages of demo site? I’m a little confuse here.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. The thing is the demo pages are built in the Cornerstone builder, which doesn’t support copy/paste or any XML option. Also, my category IDs are just not the same as yours and the XMLs cannot ever work. I’m setting up tutorial for all of this with the demo content. Unfortunately it takes time, please be a bit patient and this will be available soon. Hopefully this answers your question. Thanks!
