  2. Hi,

    The LifeNews demo has infinite scroll, does it count as a new page view on google analytics when it loads?


    • Hi,

      Yes, if you are using the Infinite Scroll, each post loaded will make a new view and also, it should be stored into Google Analitycs.

      Thank you!

  3. It’s nice to see more demos with thumbnails in portrait orientation. I’ve often wondered why we don’t get thumbnail styles compatible with book covers, magazine covers, DVD covers, movie posters, etc.

    As for my favorite, I like Art Magazine because it takes the newspaper out of Newspaper, if you know what I mean.

    • Hi David,

  7. Hello Team TagDiv,
    i am a huge big fan of Newspaper theme always checking one on one new themes & i really like those themes, sometimes thinking i should have to use all themes ones. recently i am using dumb theme but it have cleared my all coverage issues in google search console but now i have to change & planning to install Fast News in newspaper theme, But i have a request pls if you can fulfill i want you to create a full screen theme as like as Zox News Theme. Reason Behind not using that theme is not comfortable with Wp-Rocket plugin. i like that theme but unable to use that’s why pls can you able to make that kind of theme.. . Thank You.

    • Hi,

      Thank you very much for your appreciation. If by full screen you mean full width, note that our composer is capable of full width design. The rows containing the page elements can be stretched to predefined widths or full width – https://prnt.sc/ongoo3 There are some demos that are designed to be full width, please check the demo list. If this is not what you meant and you have a suggestion/request to make, please let us know.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      The demo uses a footer page, it is available for import from the cloud library https://cloud.tagdiv.com/#/single/page/Footers/957 So if you just want that page, you can import it through the cloud library, then set it as footer page in the theme panel. If you need help with it, please create a new topic in the theme support forum and we will help you. Let us know.

      Thank you!

  8. Great update, i like it! But could you explain, what I have to do, to put an already existing site like mine in a new optics with the css like you provide with lifenews pro template? let me explain: I want to keep all blocks the same and in same place, but I like the optics, fonts and css that is used with the pro lifenews theme. is there a way to change the complete site to the new view? frank

    • Hi,

      Thank you very much for the kind words. These new demos make use of the great amount of customization options that flex blocks and grids have. They don’t use a separate demo stylesheet. Everything is done in the page or cloud template used (design, fonts, colors, etc.). With the default blocks and grids it wouldn’t be possible easily. If you would like to see how the Life news demo homepage is made, you can import it with the cloud library plugin and edit it with the composer https://cloud.tagdiv.com/#/single/page/Homepages/899 The same for the cloud templates used, header, post, author etc.

      Thank you!

      • So i change the Homepage with the Import from cloud Library and have to Change every Single Otter Page by Hand? By copy and Paste every Single css-entry? Or will there Even be every block, customized for life-news, in the Import library? Thanks again.

        • Hi,

          All the templates the Life news pro demo uses can be imported from the cloud library,also the homepage. They are ready made, simply import and use them. If you would like to use the demo homepage as well, just import it, configure it to display the content you want and then set it. No need to copy/paste any CSS. In case you need help wit it, please create a new topic in the theme forum and we be glad to assist.

          Thank you!

  9. I was really happy to see Podcast demo for my favorite theme (I use “Newspaper” in various projects), but unfortunately it lacks one very important feature. It’s seamless continuous player. Imagine a listener clicked “play” on homepage, then decided to go in and leave a comment – the episode will be disturbed. Then he click play again on the episode page, submitting a comment – shazam! again, disturbed.
    I know, it’s not really theme’s problem, but would be really great if Tagdiv team can include or at least recommend this kind of plugin with this functionality (music player plugin that keep music playing seamless while you navigate WP site)

    • Hi,

      That would be correct, the players are in the page content. Navigating away from the respective page where it is being played or refreshing the page, will stop the player. Maybe there are music player plugins out there that are capable of something like you mention, I can’t make any recommendations unfortunately.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      Depends on which demo you are referring to. You could simply import the demo homepage or template you want, edit them with the composer, click on the elements you want and check what fonts are used. Here is the documentation for the cloud library plugin https://forum.tagdiv.com/tagdiv-cloud-library-plugin/
      In case you need help, please create a new topic in the theme forum. Let us know.

      Thank you!

  10. Dear Alina,

    it’s of course very good to add new interesting features to Newspaper theme, and given Newspaper theme is the paid leading theme of his type and the bestselling of his time, I think it could provide additional functions that I wish it will have in the short term:

    1) compatibility with PHP 7.3
    2) increasing the number of compatibile plugins from the current 11 (too few for me) to at least 25 including the most used related also to security, membership areas, wordpress optimization etc.
    3) increasing SEO quality (the theme creates lots of links through category filter: ordering the posts by date, random, popular ecc creates duplicate URLs and can cause ranking penalization to the websites if duplication is not managed).
    4) a better speed of the mobile theme (NOT AMP). I found it still slower in my opinion compared to the desktop version: on our website, we get around usually 20 points less in mobile speed compared to desktop speed (evaluated from Google Page Speed Insights):

    5) a better update process: since May, I tried to update more than once to the new theme without success, by following your main recommendations:


    The website change completely the graphics and I restore the backup. We didn’t go beyond 9.6.1 version.

    I feel disappointed in having the theme from January and in not being able to a basic thing: the update process, which I found to be such a basic thing that I do not like to pay for the support (installation and update are basic thing and should be included in the price from my point of view). If users cannot install/update the theme, they cannot use its last functions.

    Hope the theme goes better for us with the next released versions.
    Thank you for your attention

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your suggestions! Regarding the theme updates please make sure that you have correctly updated your theme in order to achieve better theme results. It is mandatory to delete all that was left from the older version before installing this update. Overwriting the files would cause a lot of problems and maybe you’ve missed something while deleting the old files. Have you checked the plugins to be deleted too? Please make sure that you have installed the updates correctly by deleting all of the older version and made a clean install from scratch in order to achieve the best functionality with our theme. Also, please take a look at our documentation about installing the theme and plugins from here -> https://tagdiv.com/updating-the-core-of-tagdiv-themes/

      Thank you for your understanding!

  11. Hi,

    Great news for update, Travel Memories look very promising.

    However, Can we reset website after load demo ?

    I means, I try to load demo A but later I want to try demo B. Is it possible to reset website before load another demo ?

    • Hi,

      Thank you for reaching us! Yes, it is possible but please note that’s not recommended to edit the dummy content because if you will change that demo, this content will be lost. You will need to create your own content and use any demo you want from our big list. For more details about installing our demos, please check here -> https://tagdiv.com/newspaper-theme-installing-demos/

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      Thank you for the appreciation. We will try to add more features for the composer and the mobile theme in future updates.

Please create a new topic in the theme support forum and we will help.

      Thank you!

  13. So I have Newspaper 9 on my site and want to make my website like the Tech News Pro demo in this blogpost. However, when I go to ‘install demo’ on my wordpress platform, selecting ‘tech news’ gives me a different demo altogether.

    Any thoughts on how to get the one listed in this blogpost? I don’t see it. Thanks.

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your interests in our theme! Unfortunately, please note that we cannot say for sure if that plugin works as propertly with our theme because we did not test this plugin, sorry! What we can say for sure is that the SEO Yoast plugin works as expected with our theme and this is part of our tested plugins. You can try this on and check how it works.

      Hope this helps!

      Thank you for your understanding!

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, that plugin has not tested with our theme and also, we do not have any guide of using it with our theme! Feel free to try using this plugin in our theme according to the plugin’s documentation from here -> https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/ but please note that we cannot say for sure if the plugin works as expected with the theme, sorry!

      Hope this helps!

      Best regards!
