  1. Does the template activation code work for multiple installations for development copy and also several live websites?

    • Hi,

      Yes, for development copy, you can use the same activation code. Normally, the Envato policy allows using a theme only on one install. You can, however, use the theme on a sub-domain if you plan on creating a testing site, but if we are talking about totally different sites with different content, then only one theme per install is legally allowed.

      Thank you!

  2. When I say import, I am encountering such an error, please help, we have given money to pity us ERROR: Imported data is invalid. Failed to update the theme settings!

  3. Hi,

    Can you also post a “How To” for performing an upgrade from an older version to a newer one?

    For example, I didn’t know I had to delete the existing file path for Newspaper as your program doesn’t delete the original one, and it errors out if it finds the same directory path.

    Really annoying (and possibly dangerous) that I have to physically delete anything in my host’s file directory for an upgrade installation to work!

    • Hi,

      There is a theme update guide as well, here it is https://tagdiv.com/update-newspaper-theme/ If you follow the steps for the methods described in the guide, there should be no problem. The FTP update method is the most recommended and reliable, but as always please make a backup before just in case. If you are having problems updating or after the update, send us an email at contact@tagdiv.com and provide admin login and cPanel or FTP if possible. Let us know.

      Thank you!

  4. I’ve done everything but when upload the newspaper 9 it gives me a different template. Idk how to fix this issue please help

  5. Hi, I am having trouble while installing the Newspaper themes’ plugins like composer and other relevant plugins, i am a premium customer. nothing is reflecting on home page. i have mentioned my website name. Plz help.

    • Hi,

      From what I saw, you are using an old theme version like Newspaper 5.3 and that’s why some errors occur -> https://www.screencast.com/t/DfVKhyr8SgF. If you want to achieve a better theme result, please update the theme to the latest version of it which is Newspaper 10.2 via FTP way. Please note that your actual theme version is too old and if you want to update it to the latest one it requires to recreate your entire website, using the new technologies, like Cloud. Very important is to make a full backup before each theme update.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      I have checked your website but I did not see any crash on your website. Everything seems to work as expected. Make sure that your system status was correctly increased according to our documentation and also, update the PHP version to be a minimum of 7.2 as the PHP version.

      Thank you!

  7. I’ve sent request a customer support and looked everywhere but I cannot find out how many downloads of the newspaper X theme are allowed once purchased it. I am in the process of upgrading from windows to Mac computer and don’t want to have to purchase it twice if possible.thx

    • Hello,

      Once you have purchased the theme, please note that you have no limit on downloading it. You also have access to updates for the entire lifetime of the theme. Normally, the Envato policy allows using a theme only on one install. You can, however, use the theme on a sub-domain if you plan on creating a testing site, but if we are talking about totally different sites with different content, then only one theme per install is legally allowed.

      Thank you!

    • Hi Kevin! Thank you for reaching out to us. Newspaper WordPress theme 10.3.5 has been recently launched on Themeforest. The only legal way to use Newspaper Theme is to purchase it from ThemeForest, Envato Market, as this platform is the exclusive market we’re selling our theme. Furthermore, when you buy a Newspaper theme license from ThemeForest, Envato issues you a unique item’s purchase key that unlocks the most important features of the Newspaper theme, allowing you to access the future updates on the theme and enter the support center. Without it, your theme is locked with no theme updates, support, and you have no access to some of the most powerful features. I hope you’ll find the information a useful one. If you have any pre-sale question, please drop as a line via email. Have a lovely day!
