    Hello Mehmet and Team,

    Will this update impact the modification I made? That is always the question for each update… :) because we made quite heavy modification here and there.

    Thanks a lot for your unending supports…

      To update the site’s theme means to lose all the mods you installed Buto.

    Hi

    We bought the theme and have it on faithfood.co.za, iyf.co.za and durbantainment.co.za.

    How do we go about updating the theme? We never did any updates since the day of purchase.

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      We emailed you a download link right after your purchase. Please find that link and try to download theme once again.

      • Arthur Charles Van Wyk Permalink Reply

        So everytime you have an update, I must just download the theme again and install. Will that not affect any of the content or layout etc?

    Este final de ano vai ter promoção?

    • Charlie Patel Permalink Reply

      Klaylton – there is a Black Friday / Cyber Monday promotion going on right now. If you buy 1 theme, you get 3 more free. So take advantage now, and you’ll get in on the deal. It ends on Monday at midnight.

  6. Arthur Charles Van Wyk Permalink Reply

    There is a block with 2 arrows just underneath my bottom 300X 250 ad and I don’t know how to populate it with content (videos or ads). There is also new instructions in the theme options about a media bar. Then the widget names have changed. There is no more footer pages widget area. I used to have a bottom leaderboard in that space and I can’t have it anymore.

    Where Can I find a document with concise theme population instructions? for this theme?

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Try our support forums Arthur.

    i found there is no tags dispaly option below of author bio box in every post as in all other wordpress themes. as a news site, its important na?

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      The tag display have never been an option advanced newspaper theme, so basically this is not a bug. But this it requires a very easy code implementation. Submit a thread at forums, we will help you there.

    Thank you for update :)

  9. Ian Hicks Permalink Reply

    I have found that this update has brought a slew of new bugs. There are two that are most prominent. The first would be that the Catch First Image option under Image Handling no longer works, it just shows a link in place of where a thumbnail should be. The second would be if there is no categories activated under tabbed content, it still shows a bar with arrows on it. As of this moment this update had been more hassle than it has been worth.

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Two very specific bugs, thanks for noticing Ian. Both are fixed and uploaded to download server. You can re-download it. These issues wont be reproducible any longer.

      • Ian Hicks Permalink Reply

        Wow! I am incredibly impressed at the speed at which my problems have been solved. It was definitely unfair to call it a slew of new bugs. Thank you so much. After this I can guarantee any future theme purchases I make will be from Gabfire!

    but here is a problem
    “TABBED CONTENT” NOT WORKING!
    Just look here http://www.staravis.com
    not working

  13. Ian Hicks Permalink Reply

    One last thing I noticed, I hate to be a bother, was that on Media pages clicking on a thumbnail image now only pops up a larger image and the title, rather than previously where it showed the text of the accompanying post also. I don’t know if this was done purposefully or would be considered a bug. I do however appreciate the ability to arrow between media rather than having to exit the current piece and selecting a new piece of media. Overall great update!

  14. LeMonde Permalink Reply

    Dear Mehmet, will you apply these new features and changes to the WpNewspaper theme as well? Thank you!

    • Mehmet Permalink Reply

      Probably, but we dont have any update plan yet.

    How much does it cost? Great theme

      All our themes have a unique price, that is $59

  20. Charles Verhoeff Permalink Reply

    Two things: 1. Google says your homepage is compromised. Just type “Gabfire themes” into Google search. 2. I recently bought your Advanced Newspaper Theme. I followed all of your instructions and it is giving me server 500 errors – tested on two different sites. You need to retest this as it is driving me crazy.

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Hi Charles, we are trying to find the reason of that issue with Google. Probably the changes with CDN server caused that otherwise our site is OK. As for theme issues, please use our support forums. It looks like a plugin conflict or configuration issue.

  21. Cosmo Permalink Reply

    Please i would like to know if there are other form of purchesing your theme other than your current listed formart. I mean can i purchase this via PayPAL?

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Yes, you can purchase using Paypal. On checkout page, make sure to change currency to USD, you will then see Paypal as payment option.

    I just purchased Advance Newspaper theme. Completed with installation and activation. Do I need to insert API key? If so, where do I insert it? My theme doesn’t show up on my screen after completion with theme configuration. What’s wrong?

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Dear Wan, would you please submit your question to our support forums, we will sort your issues out on forums.

    Hi Mehmet,
    I purchased the Advanced News theme a couple of days ago-Good work guys!

    Thanks

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Hi Pandinth, May I ask if you can submit that question to our support forums? We’ll sort it out there.

      The one you refer on your link is the warez and old version. There could be security risk and certainly not supported. If you comfortable to use it, feel free.

    Is there any scope for adding a newsletter subscription form widget that can be inserted on the home page of the Advance Newspaper and City Desk themes ?
    Thanks

    If the themes support optin forms – they would be perfect !!

    Cheers

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Hi Dane, Newsletter forms are actually being handled by 3rd party tools. You can easily create an account at mailchimp.com or use a WP plugin such as subscribe2

    Hi :)
    I’m looking for a theme suitable for a soccer site. So, I have two questions …
    1) Although I really like traditional newspaper look of Advanced Newspaper, I would like to know if you are planning to launch a similar theme in the near future, a theme that would be modernised (but still resemble the AN) and be mobile responsive?
    2) i heard somewhere responsive layouts cannot be integrated with Google Adsense. Is this true? If it is, what would be other good way of monetization of a newly opened sports site?
    Thank you for your help.

    Hello,
    is it possible to use this Advanced Newspaper 2.1 theme for online newspaper in Russian language? if the admin panel is in english it is okay
    thanks

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Hi Nick, the latest version of advanced newspaper is 2.6. This is an old post. And yes, you can use the latest version on a Russian language site. You may need to translate theme into Russian. We have tutorials for translation and it is not something that would take more than 30 min.

    Does this mean that I have to pay full price for new versions of themes, even though I bought the basic version of the theme? In The link http://www.gabfirethemes.com/faq/ is an explanation:”As an owner of a Gabfire theme, you are entitled to free updates of the theme. The themes are available in your Member Dashboard, and the links will always contain the latest version of the product.”

      @boban – no. You get free updates. Just login to your profile, and download latest version. It’s free as noted in FAQ! Free updates.

    Hi, I installed the Advanced Newspaper theme 4 days ago and twice since that time, the site has malfunctioned where the header and the slider are the only things that would appear. I had to uninstall and reinstall the theme and everything went back to normal both times. Is there something I can do to prevent this? My host is Hostgator.
    Thank you.

    • Charlie Patel Permalink Reply

      Hi Chris – sounds like a plugin issue, but give us a shout on the support forums and we’ll help you get sorted.

    Hi All,

    I’m having a similar problem…

    I’d like to update my old version of AdvNews (v1.2 from 2009!) but my original download link now leads to an error message (“Invalid Link”).

    Can someone help with this?

    PS: It’s amazing that this four-year old code still works as well as it does. That is impressive stability and longevity. You guys must be doing something right.
