    Hi,Love your theme. Just one question, how come when I click on the Archives, say Nov 2006, only the first entry comes out instead of a view same as a search results? Any fix? Regards.

  6. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Nicktay, the archive has a special template (the same as the category template) designed specifically for this theme. It is meant to show the most recent post’s excerpt, then the previous posts in an unordered list below it. I hope that’s what you’re seeing.

    If you want to make it look just like the search results, you’re going to have to open “archive.php” and “search.php.” Copy this from search.php:

    <?php if(have_posts()) :

    all the way down to

    <?php endif; ?>

    Then take what you copied and replace that content in archive.php. Do not delete or copy anything above those two things in either file.

    Justin Published |

    Mattia, I’m going to need more information from you than that. You should tell me what steps you’ve tried. I hope you also read the “readme.txt” file thoroughly because it lists in detail how to accomplish this.

    From what I can tell by looking at your source code for your home.php is that you have deleted the feature post item from home.php. Your images won’t show up without that. You’ll need to upload a fresh copy if that’s the case.

    Looking at your single.php, it looks like you’ve manually inputted the picture into your blog post instead of using a custom field as explained in “readme.txt.”

    Nicktay, I’m glad every thing’s working like you want it. I live to serve.

    Marco, thanks. Send me your link. I’d love to see how you’re using the theme.

    Very nice. Thank you. I found a couple of glitches in category.php, though.

    <?php if (is_category()) { $posts = query_posts($query_string . '&orderby=date&showposts=1'); } ?>
    only shows 1 post on the page. I changed the quantity to 1000.

    <!-- post -->
    is several lines too far down in the file. It is actually outside the loop. I moved it to be immediately after
    <!-- entry -->

    — Art Z.

  13. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Art, I understand how you could think that the “showposts=1” is a mistake, but it’s actually what I intended to do.

    Your category and archive pages should show the excerpt from the most recent post, then have an unordered list of later posts below that. (Two separate loops.)

    I didn’t really see any problem with the “entry” div either. But, that could be because the structure is different than normal themes. Check out the demo and look at what the category page looks like there.

    It can be a little confusing. It was, even to me, while I was putting it all together. If you have any other questions or problems, feel free to drop me a line. I’d be more than willing to help.

    Hi Justin, me again. I really like this theme, but I want to create a page for my Archives, Months or Topics separated. Is there in any way I can do these in this theme? Much appreciated.

  16. April Reign
    April Reign Published |

    I’m confused. I uploaded and installed/configured the Related Posts plugin…but nothing shows up.

    When you say the single post.php is preconfigured this means I don’t need to edit the template as the plugin install suggests..yes?

    So why isn’t it working for me?

  17. April Reign
    April Reign Published |

    ok added php tag now it works. Nevermind.

  18. Justin
    Justin Published |

    April, single.php isn’t configured to use Related Posts, but single-sidebar.php is. It pulls the related posts into the sidebar. So, if you’ve changed the sidebar, it wouldn’t work correctly.

    K, do you want to create an Archives Page, Months Page, and Topics Page? Or, do you want to create templates for each of these? There are already a templates for these called archive.php (which includes tags) and category.php. If you want to do the former, I can help, but there are several different ways to do that (plugins, different ways to code and layout).

    Also, category.php and archive.php have been updated (there was a small bug, well a big bug in the previous version).

    Hi Justin, I want to create a Page template (that sits on the Top Navigation for my Archives/Post by month-days or topics so that my readers can easily browse to my old posts.


  20. Justin
    Justin Published |

    K, from what I understand, you want a link to your archives, categories, etc. on your menu across the top of the page. You need to add a link to the page you want to display in “top-nav.php” to do this.

    The link code (change the permalink ID to your Archives Page ID):

    <li<?php if (is_page('Archives')) { echo " id=\"current\""; } ?>>
    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink(2); ?>" title="<?php _e('Archives'); ?>">
    <span><?php _e('Archives'); ?></span></a>

    A tutorial on how to create your Archives Page and template can be found here: Creating and archive index. I personally use the SRG Clean Archives Plugin. Justin Blanton’s Smart Archives is another popular plugin.

    There are plenty of other tutorials on how to piece together archives and category archives. I hope this at least helps some, or maybe points you in the right direction.

    And I’m sticking with your Newspaperize theme (including widget support). I’ve tested a few themes lately bur I keep turning it back with your Theme. I think newspaper/magazine wordpress theme are by far unique than the “default” two sidebars theme.

    My question is, how do I change the text-style? Adding header images?

    Thanks Justin for sharing this theme. I’ll remain loyal to your theme unless you create more (for free).

  27. Justin
    Justin Published |

    K, I actually have a tutorial on creating clickable header images. You might want to check that out.

    When you say “text style,” I take it you mean “font family”? You can find this code under “body” in style.css:

    font: 85% "Trebuchet MS", Arial, "Lucida Sans Unicode", Tahoma, sans-serif;

    or this under headers:

    font: 1.3em georgia, "times new roman", times, serif;

    From there, you can choose your font families. However, there’s not a lot of choices with fonts on the Web. The two sets of fonts listed above are about as creative as you can get because not everyone will have the same fonts installed on their computer.

    As far as more themes go, I’m actually planning on releasing a new magazine/news-style theme this weekend. It’s going to be a little more “premium” than previous themes. It’ll have a lot more features packed into it.

    I am just testing this out now but I have a small problem I hope you can help with.

    I don’t want the right sidebar to display on a particular page that I have. I am using a plugin called Now Reading which allows you to build up a library and has a library page (library.php) In another theme I was using, I changed it so that there are no sidebars on that page so that all the info can fit in (lists of books and covers etc), but on your theme I don’t know how to stop the right sidebar from displaying just on that page only. I do want it on every other part of the blog just not that page.

    Can you tell me how to stop it from displaying on that particular page only?

    You spelt “newspaperize” wrong in the footer link of the theme.What you have there is “Newspaperzie”.

  36. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Elle, you’ll have to be more specific than that. What page? Are you talking about a WordPress “Page,” like your About page or something? The “footer.php” file is where the call to the right sidebar is.

    Ada, thanks for pointing this out. I do all this work to make everything perfect and misspell the name of the theme in the footer. 🙂

    I worked it out re the sidebar, I decided to leave it on in the end.

    I just noticed a new problem though after installing your theme. I have the Ultimate tag warrior plugin with a tag cloud widget in my sidebar. It displays fine but I just noticed with your theme when you click on any of the tags you get this error instead:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wswwpx_content_extract() in /home/********/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/newspaperize/index.php on line 11

    It works fine in other themes, any idea how to fix?

    I searched google and there was one reference to another blog that seemed to be having the same problem but no solution.

    At the same time, I have a new problem when trying to change back to my old theme. When I select the other theme, I get this message:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/***********/public_html/blog/wp-config.php:47) in /home/***********/public_html/blog/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 341

    It does actually change the theme but I can’t see that unless I open another browser window. Everything else seems to be working normally, I wondered since they just happened after installing newspaperize, if they were connected?

    I really don’t want to have to reinstall the theme if possible, thanks for any help

  38. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Elle, sorry about the “wswwpx_content_extract()” thing. It was something left in “index.php” by mistake. It has been corrected. However, the theme doesn’t use “index.php” because it has a “home.php” file. I’m not sure why that’s a problem.

    What version of WordPress are you using? I haven’t worked with the Ultimate Tag Warrior Plugin before. I guess that when you click on the tag, it calls “index.php” for some reason. I suggest downloading another copy of the theme and uploading just the “index.php” file or copying the content of “home.php” into “index.php” in your theme now.

    I don’t think the changing themes issue has anything to do with this theme. I’m not 100% sure though. I’ll look more into it when I have the time, but it could be an issue with your WordPress install itself. As in my recommendations above, I definitely suggest updating to the latest version of WordPress.

    Success! I uploaded another index.php and that has solved the tag problem.

    I also solved the second problem by checking the wpconfig file and removing a blank line from the end. I don’t know why that was there as I’ve never touched that file before but there was one after the ?> and now that problem has gone away too – yay! It’s looking really cool – thanks, I love the theme!

    I’m having a problem with images showing on the category page. Images all work on the home page and post page.

    I’m using image only, no thumbs


  46. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Steve, you’re inputting invalid image file names in, or rather, you’re probably inputting incorrect paths.

    For example, if your image is located in “site-name/wp-content/uploads/year/month/image-name.jpg,” then you can’t put “wp-content/uploads/year/month/image-name.jpg” as the image file name. It wouldn’t work on your post pages if your permalinks weren’t set up the way the are either.

    There are two correct formats you can use here. One is to use the entire image URL. The other is to use a relative path. Your image file name would look like:


    Notice the slash in the front. You’re probably leaving that off and trying to use relative paths.

    Hi Justin,

    I wanna use your great theme for a new project.

    In the top-navigation (home etc.), your theme shows the sites of the blog. I would like to show the “sections” in the top-navigation instead. What do I have to change in the header.php or elsewhere?


  50. Justin
    Justin Published |

    Gersh, I honestly have no idea what you’re asking. Once what is clicked? What gray?

    Sebastian, to change the links in the top navigation bar, just open “top-nav.php” and put what links you want in there.

    Hi there, thanks for this great theme.

    I’ve been tweaking it a little to display an adsense ad on single, right beside the custom field image.

    Link here

    The problem is it only works with everything inside a table. If I use a div, as at the bottom of single, it gets all weird. Any sugestions?

  52. Justin
    Justin Published |

    J. Noronha, the first thing I want to say is that you need to clean the site up a bit. You have 72 XHTML errors. This can cause all kinds of problems.

    I would wrap the ad in a div with a class of “left,” like this:

    <div class="left">Your ad</div>

    I would also give the image a class of “left” or “right.” You can do this by adding the custom field Value of “left” to the Key of “image-class.”

  53. j. noronha
    j. noronha Published |

    Thanks a lot, I’m going to try that. About the XHTML errors, I was checking and most of them are caused by no validated ads code (this people should go back to college).

    Justin: I am having trouble embedding a youtube video in an article. (probably something simple I am overlooking). It shows a broken link on the page. Here’s what I am pasting into the CODE block on the article:

  58. Justin
    Justin Published |

    John M, this really has nothing to do with the WordPress theme. Your code didn’t show up either. You should try wrapping it in these tags:


    The code I use to put YouTube videos in my pages is:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="Video URL" style="width: 290px; height: 242px; border: none; padding: 0; margin: 0;" id="video-id">
    	<param name="movie" value="Video URL" />
    	<param name='wmode' value='transparent' />
    	<param name="quality" value="best" />
    	<param name="bgcolor" value="transparent" />
    	<param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" />

    Of course, you’ll need to change the “Video URL” to the Embed URL on the YouTube videos page. Just take the URL, delete the &rel=1 at the end, and replace “Video URL” with that.

    If something else is messing the video up, then you might want to stop by the WordPress support page. A lot of people can help you there.

  62. Justin

    John M
    Maybe this has something to do with you not having “pretty permalinks” set up. I’m not sure. See if this works. Open “home.php” and change this line:

    $my_query = new WP_Query('category_name=features&showposts=1');

    To this (change the “4” to whatever you category ID for “features” is):

    $my_query = new WP_Query('cat=4&showposts=1');

    Also, make sure the category slug is “features,” not just the category name.

    Changing the posting slug did the trick. I didn’t try the other coding change. Thanks again.

  74. Justin
    Justin Published |

    There are four sidebar files, “sidebar-home-left.php,” “sidebar-home-right.php,” “sidebar-archive.php,” and “sidebar-single.php.” The first two are both on your front page. Depending on which one you want your other sidebars to look like, you must copy it.

    For example, if you want everything to look like “sidebar-home-left.php,” then you must open that file and copy its contents (except for the first two and last two lines). Paste those contents into the other files (except for the first two and last two lines).

    If you don’t know how to edit these files, then I suggest you simply use widgets.

    Ok. I’ve figured out how to do most of what I was questioning in my ealier post. On question though…

    I have created sidebar categories viua widgets and have called them Basketball and Football. I also have created lots of other categories via the manage/categories function in WP. My goal is to have a category for a sport and then underneath that category have another catagory that contains all the posts for that sport. However, what is happening is that I end up with the same category (create by manage/category) underneath the widget created category. No matter what I do I have the same subcategory under the main category., ex:

    Football –> Category 10
    Baseball –> Category 10

    I have tried everything I know for the last 2 days and I can’t figure out why this is happening. I want it to be like:

    Football –> catgegory 10
    Baseball –>category 5, etc
