New in Newspaper: Social Network Buttons

Home

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.

Now it’s your turn to help cultivate a culture of sharing. With Newspaper, we are changing the way your post share function behaves, and your feedback is priceless. Share your experience in the comments and help us improve this feature! Stay close and you’ll find out when the update is live.

    • 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 OK.ru (the biggest social network in our country) and Liveojurnal.com (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 contact@tagdiv.com and provide admin login so we can take a look.

      Thank you!

    • I am facing a problem with newspaper theme with the latest version(10.3.4). I don’t want to use demo, I want to create my own page. But the proble is single social share is not working when no demo is installed. But when I install the “default demo” it works fine except the “Gadgets Pro demo”. Please fix this issue. I don’t know this problem happens on other demos too.
      At last social share button should be already installed when no demo is installed. Because some pleople want to make their own page with tagdiv composer.
      And only for this problem no one want to install 3rd party share button like “addthis”. Because is effects site performance and decrease page load time with its heavy javascript.
      I hope this problem will be solved in the next update. I am really eager for it.
      Thank you.

      • Hi,

        Thank you for using our theme and also, I feel sorry if you are facing some problems with our theme. Unfortunately, this account is not assigned to our support forum and that’s why, if you need more technical assistance, you have to open a new support ticket at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ where you need to provide more details about your problem and we are ready to help you.

        All the best!

    • 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 studio.envato.com.

      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 -> https://www.screencast.com/t/IG1iFQzv2

      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!

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

    Thank you,

    • 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 “weibo.com”,”zhihu.com” & 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!

  5. Hello.
    I am using newspaper x series theme. There were social sharing buttons in the initial installation of the theme. But later he disappeared spontaneously as a result of the adjustments. There is no other social sharing button other than Naver. Would you help me with this topic?
    Here in the photo. https://gezgorbence.com/social.jpg

    I wish you good work. Thank you..

    • Hi,

      If you’re seeing only NAVER you need to follow the below advice:

      This issue happens when updating from an older version of the theme so please make this adjustment in the tagDiv Composer plugin:
      https://www.screencast.com/t/HGX40TlcJgb

      Then hit a save in the theme panel and then revert the code back to original .this will make the social icons appear properly again.

      Thank you!

  6. Catalin,

    The issue with only NAVER appearing is occuring on a fresh WP installation, with a up-to-date download of Newspaper 10. This will need to be addressed. Thanks!

  7. Hi, I have a problem about the social buttons in post template. When I read a post on desktop they correctly appear just below the title, but on mobile I can’t see. I mean, they are there, if I touch the white space I can trigger them, simply they don’t show up!

    Strangely enough, switching on the mobile emulation on the Chrome Inspector the buttons are just there, so I’m unable to recreat the issue and analyze it (and, of course, by switching on the Desktop Mode on mobile Chrome I cannot see them anyway).

    I’ve tried with many Android phones and nothing change, so I suppose it’s not a device issue.

    Here’s a link for you to test: https://ivl24.it/ducati-ha-scelto-maratea-per-il-suo-spot/

    Thank you for your help. 🙂

    • Hi,

      Please send us an email at contact@tagdiv.com with your log-in information and Cpanel access so I can take a closer look at your setup configuration page and also, so I will be able to provide a more accurate response.

      Best regards!

  8. Hi,

    About whatsapp many today use the whatsapp desktop app, at least those who also use it to work, it would be very very convenient to have the button also on the desktop site.

    Francesco

    • Hello,

      @media (min-width: 767px){
      .td-social-whatsapp, .td-social-line, .td-social-viber {
      display: inline-block;
      }}

  9. Greetings! I know, that WhatsApp sharing catch just shows up on cell phones, however I might want to show it on work area gadgets as well. A few people use WhatsApp on work area gadgets in program. Where to discover the capacity and where and how should I incorporate the code, with the goal that the catch shows up on work area gadgets?

    • Hello,

      If you want to display the WhatsApp button on the desktop devices you have to use 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 {

  10. Hello all!
    Tell me please how it possible to add sharing Social Network Buttons on individual pages ? because i found only title for sharing on single post/news.

    Thanks!

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have any such an option for sharing individual pages. You should find a plugin with that functionality and check how it goes.

      Best regards!

  11. Hello, I amusing this funtion also but can not find to customize the fonts for Social Share. I am using my custom fonts but for Social Shares, it automatically loads Google Open Sans that I do not like.

  12. How hard would it be to add more social links? For instance I want to add socials from different countries that are not as main stream as the ones you already have posted up.

    • Hi,

      Thanks for using our theme! Please note that all of the sharing buttons are integrated into our theme core files. This is not a simple task and also, if you want to add your own social sharing button you will need to edit the theme core files. Furthermore, if you need custom functionality, we have a team assigned of web developers and web designers that can help you reach your goals (https://tagdiv.com/premium-customization-services/).

      All the best!
