New in Newspaper: Social Network Buttons


The Update is Live since the 4th of January 2018.

Dear friends, since Christmas is coming, we have a surprise for you! We are excited to take you behind the closed doors and reveal a cool improvement we are currently working on for the Newspaper Theme. A brand new way to enhance the looks and feel of your social network sharing icons will be available soon. We’re now working on adding 16 of your favorite social channels such as:

Facebook WhatsApp Telegram StumbleUpon
Twitter LinkedIn tumblr VKontakte
Google+ Reddit Print Digg
Pinterest Mail Line Viber

Sneak peek to the future

Newspaper Theme will also bring you the drag and drop functionality so you can adjust the icon order with ease. All you have to do is check the box for the social network you want to display and the theme will do the rest.

We’re also working on giving you a greater flexibility in the way you display your social icons. It’s important for us to know that you have the power to change these elements to match your overall website styling approach without touching a single line of code.

Let’s take a look at the button’s design! Simple, colored, big, small, round, square? Newspaper has them all! Just click on any form you like, and save your settings.

Moreover, you have the option to enable the “Share” text, by displaying it on both positions (top or bottom). Convince your visitors to share your beautiful articles!

The improvement will become available to use in the Newspaper Theme Panel > Post Settings, and under the “Post sharing” tab.

    • Hi, Rajesh!

      I’m sorry to hear this. Please open a new topic on our Customer Support Center and provide all the relevant details. If you don’t have an account, please create one, it only takes a few seconds. Our support team is ready to assist you, but the blog section is not assigned to the support center. It will be harder and takes longer to help you here. Thank you for understanding.

  1. Are you planning to add more social channels? We need to add (the biggest social network in our country) and (old-fashioned but we still have a core readership of several hundred there.)

    • Hi,

      I will add your request on the list, it will be strongly considered for a future update. For the moment those are not available in the theme, sorry for any inconvenience.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      That share button will appear on mobile, it uses the mobile app to share the post. On desktop it will not appear. If the button does not appear on mobile, please send us an email at and provide admin login so we can take a look.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have any such an option that allows you to integrate them into the Social Sharing section. Please note that is not a simple task and for this is needed such additional customizations which are not covered by our support. Usually, we recommend the developers from

      Thank you!

  2. Hi! I know, that WhatsApp sharing button only appears on mobile devices, but I would like to show it on desktop devices too. Some people use WhatsApp on desktop devices in browser. Where to find the function and where and how must I include the code, so that the button appears on desktop devices?

    • Hi,

      Please check the code below and place it in Theme panel -> Custom CSS area.

      @media (min-width: 767px){
      .td-social-whatsapp, .td-social-line, .td-social-viber {
      display: block;
      .td-post-sharing-visible, .td-social-sharing-hidden {
      display: inline-flex;

      The result is here ->

      Hope this helps!

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      You mean in the social counter? I believe this request is already on our list and it will be considered. I can’t say for sure if or when it may be added.

      Thank you!

  3. Dear Twitter,

    I got a problem in sharing a news from my own news portal. In Twitter, sometimes there was a picture with a news link, sometimes there was a link only without any picture within it.

    Could you give me more information why the picture sometimes disappear sometimes not. Is there any requirement about the format of picture its self?.

    and give some suggestion what should I am going to do to solve my problem.

    Thank you,

    Best regard…

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have any such an option that allows you to add a social sharing button on the pages, sorry! If you need this functionality you need to find such a plugin and check how it works.

      Thank you!

  4. Hi,

    I’m from China. Could you please add the Chinese social network to Newspaper theme, such as “”,”” & WeChat.
    Or is there a custom feature adding your own social network?

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, our theme does not have such an option that allows you to integrate this platform into your site, sorry! Thanks for the suggestion, but please note that we cannot say for sure if this will be implemented or not, sorry!

      Thank you for your message!
      Best regards!
