We really like this plugin, however there is one thing that is a road block. Is there a way to set the featured image to link to the post?

Thanks in advance! Josh

I really did not received your email. Please write directly to this email: srvalle@gmail.com

Thank you! Sent you an email.

You’re welcome. Now your email arrived and I have already sent the plugin. Regards

Hello, this plugin can work with Visual Composer: Page Builder for WordPress ?


Hello. Yes, you can add the ZNews shortcode inside a Text widget. Regards

Will this accept Soundcloud, Mixcloud or other audio embedding? Thanks

You can embed anything for lightbox or page. But you must use the code that these sites provide to embed. The same way, for example, embed a Youtube video in an site. Regards

Is it possible for my members to comment on my news?

Yes, it is possible to comment in the same way as the standard post.

Thank you. I have bought it :)

You’re welcome :) And thank you for your purchase!


i want to translate read more, but i can t find it on the plugin file, can you let me know where it is ?


Hello, this option is changed directly in the WP admin. Within each znews post or default post, there is a panel called ZNews Options. In this panel you will find a field called “Text Button Link”. Just change the text. Regards.

How do I layer this plugin over a current graphic? I have a main page graphic and I need to layer this plugin over it. I tried using the short code, but it drops below the graphic instead of on top of it. Any thoughts?

Hi, you can try putting the ZNews shortcode inside a div with a high z-index value. See the example below:
<div style="z-index: 1000; position: absolute;">
[znews id="12345" other options...]
You may also need to set the position property to “absolute”. try it with and without.

Question on responsiveness… Works great, but I need to NOT SHOW the slider when it gets to the mobile screen size… Where in your coding is the section on the media screens?

The treatment of responsiveness is done in javascript. But if you want to change specific behaviors according to the device, I recommend adding css media queries within the css files. Open the css file (skin file) you are using and add the desired media queries. The path of the css files are found in the plugin folder: (/plugins/z-news/css/skin/gray.css or blue.css etc.). Below are some examples you can use to smartphones and tablets. If you have any questions, please contact through the my user profile via email.

/* Smartphones (portrait and landscape) ----------- */
@media (min-device-width : 320px) and (max-device-width : 480px) {
/* add Styles */

/* Smartphones (landscape) ----------- */
@media (min-width : 321px) {
/* add Styles */

/* Smartphones (portrait) ----------- */
@media (max-width : 320px) {
/* add Styles */

/* tablets (portrait and landscape) ----------- */
@media (min-device-width : 768px) and (max-device-width : 1024px) {
/* add Styles */

/* tablets (landscape) ----------- */
@media (min-device-width : 768px) and (max-device-width : 1024px) and (orientation : landscape) {
/* add Styles */

/* tablets (portrait) ----------- */
@media (min-device-width : 768px) and (max-device-width : 1024px) and (orientation : portrait) {
/* add Styles */

Are ZNews post items not tag-enabled? I see that Categories are enabled, but we heavily use tags as a way to filter and sort the different content throughout our site. Can tags be added to each ZNews item?

Yes, the plugin supports tags on each item, but this feature was disabled. Has a new version in the review queue, which has this feature enabled (version 2.2). If you do not want to wait for the review (usually fast), you can send me an email via my user profile and I send you this new version. Thank you.

Hello, I wonder if i can put this plugin on homepage slider for my theme : www.gt3themes.com/wordpress-themes/oyster/


Yes, if your site is done with Wordpress. Regards.

Hi, can you please point out to me the major difference between znews and your hopos post slider aside from visual obvious size options.

Also, wanted to know if Znews has the ability to pull the page content [not post content] when the more button is clicked. Thank you :)

Hi, the main difference is that Znews has its own custom post type. And Hopos does not have a custom post type. Instead, it can be used with any post type used in the WP site. For example, you can create a slider Hopos with posts created in Znews.

Yes, within each post has a Znews metabox with the configuration options. You can choose “Open Content > Custom Link” to open a page instead of the post. This option does not open in lightbox, only on the page. Regards :)

Hello Srvalle,

Kindly do resolve the issue thanks.

have a nice weekend.

Hello vishwamukha, I answered your questions via email. Please check your email account. Regards.

1) – The DEMO seemed to have issues closing the light box when I would open a video.

I am using FireFox 35.0.1

2) – This seems to have more features than your more expensive plugin at…


Is this correct?

What are the KEY differences between the two ?

- turner2f

Hello turner2f,

1) It was a bug to close the lightbox with self hosted video. It has been fixed and is queued for review.

2) It has common features and different ones. The main similarities are that both allow you to show video, audio and image for each post. The main difference is that Znews has its own custom post type and Hopos plugin does not have custom post type. Instead it can work with any post type existing in Wordpress.

Hi I just installed your plugin but I can’t make any changes in the shortcake, I mean I do a changes save, then copy and paste but I can’t see any changes on my page http://inwestor1.bowim.pl/komunikaty-prasowe/ – just example I have replaced “read more” to “czytaj wiecej” phrase but there are no changes on the page (inside shortcake it is correct) why this happens ?

You do not understood well. The menu option “Create Shortcode” is just to create the shortcode, is not to edit. You will NOT edit the “read more” in this menu.

Please follow the steps below.

- Click on this file “Grupa Kapita?owa, Bowim podala wyniki za rok 2014” to edit. This is the first post of the slider.

- When you open this file for editing, you will see the panel called “Znews Options”. This panel is below the WP editor. This panel is the most important part of this plugin and on it have several configuration options, including “read more” text. Just change for your text.

About the width of the slider, just do as I told you in the previous comment. That will work.

I hope it has been easier to understand now.

Is it possible to disable somehow those social buttons on the left ? http://inwestor1.bowim.pl/znews/bowim-s-a-publikuje-wyniki-za-iii-kwartal-2012/

Hello, these social buttons are not part of my plugin. They are part of your theme or some other plugin. Take a look at the plugins menu.

Hi, Your plugin seems impressive ! I have few questions : Is it possible to have this plugin in a widget? Can I show only title ? and can you describe me what will be the appearance? Does this plugin will increase my loading ?

Thanks !

Send me the login of your website through my user profile. I’ll see if it is possible integrate your post type “manga” with znews plugin.

Hi, Thank you for your time and your help^^ However, it now works with “manga” but not for the other ministe, can you tell me how I can integrate it? (you already got my email). Besides, when I use a thumbnail, the text is displaying under the thumbnail not in the right side (I checked layout 1), can you help me with this? Last question, is it possible to make visible the “znews admin panel” in my different post types, because I can’t use the great feature with icon without that:(


Yes, you can place the panel available in this post type. Open the file “admin.php” ( /z-news/php/admin/admin.php ). Place the code below into the function called “zn_add_meta_box”.

add_meta_box(‘zn-meta3’,__(‘Znews Options’,’znews-plugin’), ‘zn_meta_box’,’it_manga’,’normal’,’high’);

PS: Any questions please contact by email support. Other customizations beyond that, I will pass you a quote via email.

Regards, Srvalle

How to add my posts to Znew for display on the page? When customer click on, it will link to my post.

Hello, In each post you find a panel called “Z-news Options.” In this panel you configure the link and other options as well.

Hi, i would buy your plugin but i have a question. Is there any way to add downloadable pdf instead of video or audio?

Hi. No, sorry. Audio and video fields do not work for other media. What is possible is to use the “Read More” link to add a link to the PDF file. For example, you could change the text to “Download PDF” instead of “Read More”, and put the PDF link in the Custom Link field in the admin.

Hi, I have a question related to invoicing, our tax law requires getting something called as “certificate of residence” of companies we buying something from. I have contacted Evanto and they told me Author should provide such document to the buyer (not Evanto), can you please send such document to me ?

Hi, please send me an email through my user profile, so I can give you my document. Regards

In the demo , I cannot see the auto sliding. Is it possible ?

Yes, in demo is false. true/false It’s the same as yes or no.

Hi. Purchased. Seems to be working fine. Will contact you later, If any issue occurs. Thanks for the plugin.

Ok, you´re welcome. Thank you for purchased.
