  • Ad box – Use this element together with the Newspaper theme ad spots to place your ads inside the content in a custom location.

    • Hi,

      In the composer adding actual shortcodes in the composer list of elements is not possible, if that is what you want to do. If you want to use shortcodes provided by plugins in the composer, enter them in column text elements and they should work properly.

      Thank you!

      • Hello. i want o to insert a shortcode.
        Ninja form shortcode. I have tried every kind of text element, including Column Content (I don’t have column text, as you said.)
        What tagdiv element should i use to insert a third party shortcode?

  2. i’m using the newspaper theme and added a videoplaylist block to the home page but i want to customize the height because i’ve only 3 videos to display and the block has a large height. where can i do this? Thank you

  3. I added a 3rd party shortcode to a Text with title box. It works perfectly. However, when I open back the page to edit something else, the actual generated code overwrites the shortcode i put in, and the page is unable to be saved. I have to delete the data and put back the shortcode. Is there anyway to avoir that?

  5. Hello,
    I am working with Newsmag theme in WordPress and the shortcodes por colour boxes that used to work in my previous theme, don’t work in this one. Do you know how are those codes in this theme? The shortcodes I was using are: [box type=”warning” ][/box]; [box type=”info” ][/box] and other similar ones, with “note” and “success”.
    Thank you!

  6. Hello,

  7. Hi,

    I am trying to find a away to insert various elements inside the Single Post Content element. The reason is this simple, our website content is rich of text with a 20+ default images gallery at the end of each article. Thus, we want to have an ability to insert call to actions the same way Ads are added in the middle of the actual content (it’d be best if we could select particular spot, let’ say just before the gallery).

    I am trying to figure out how we can accomplish this, since it’s only possible to add elements above or below Single Post Content element. And obviously, we do not want to be manually inserting shortcodes inside the actual content, for thousands of articles. We also would like to avoid additional plugins for doing that.

    Does Newspaper have a workaround for this issue? It has so many functions it is hard to know and explore all the possibilities.

    Best,
    Rock

    • Hello,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have more options that allow you to add custom elements in Single Post Content. The only way you can follow would be to try to add some shortcodes from some of your plugins, but we can’t make any recommendations in this case.

      Thank you!

      • Hi,

        Thank you for replying. Is there a way to create a shortcode for an Theme’s element?
        Like if there is footer, header templates, is there such a thing as an element template for which a shortcode could be generate?

        If yes, we would could be adding in native elements with some kind of shortcode insertion plugin.

        Thanks

        • Hello,

    • Hi,

      If you want to display some custom shortcodes into the Footer section, please note that you can customize the Footer section through a Footer Template which allows you to edit it with TD Composer. After that, you can add there a Text with Title element or Column Text and add there your custom shortcode inside it.
