  1. I m sorry if the question is too silly, but I m new in WordPress. Does Newspaper include a “Contact form”?, I do not see it in the demos or examples, I need it to allow people who visits my site, sending messages to me. Thanks.

  2. Hello,

    When I add the Facebook ID, the social counter still show 0 Fans. Is there something to do on Facebook as well for it to work ?

    • Hi,

      I have made some tests and this functionality seems to returns good results, as you can see here -> https://www.screencast.com/t/LFmddGjNS Make sure if you have correctly added the Facebook ID, clear all the caches, purge CDN files and check the results. Also, ensure that you are using the latest version of the theme and required plugins if you want to achieve good theme results. If the problem is still there, please send us an email at contact@tagdiv.com with your log-in information (wp-admin) so we can take a closer look at your setup page.

      Thank you!

    • Hi Farid,

      It seems to be a problem with API on Facebook and that’s why the Social Counter does not work, sorry! Please send us an email at contact@tagdiv.com with your log-in information so we can take a closer look at your setup configuration. Also, please provide the CPanel for deeper investigations.

      Thank you!

      Thank you!

  5. Hi,
    Great widget.

    – All works fine except for instagram. I have to update manually.
    – I have no youtube page, so it’s empty but still display with 0 fan. Possible to delete youtube?
    Thank’s a lot.

    • Hi,

      The social counter will display values if there are IDs in the required fields. If you don’t want to display the YouTube counter, remove the ID or channel from the field https://prnt.sc/oxi78j -> https://prnt.sc/oxi7la In some cases there could be issues that prevent the counter from working properly or displaying the correct values. Try as a test to use a different ID, for example https://prnt.sc/oxi84y then switch again to your own.

      Thank you!

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, that option is no longer available in the Widgets section from the panel, sorry! We strongly recommend creating your widgets using the TD Composer and split the ROW into more columns where you can add your desired section as sidebar/widget. If you need more assistance in this case, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ because the blog is not assigned to the support team.

If the problem is still there after this, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ and our team is ready to assist you.

  8. Hello,

    I use WordPress for my blog as I am not acquainted with coding. While using social counter on my home page I found that there is a lot of space between the social colored circles. Is there a way to reduce it? I do not know CSS please keep that in mind. Let me know if there is a way to reduce the spacing in TD composer. Note** I have a licensed newpaper 9 theme from tagdiv

    Cheers

  10. Hello, the counter is still 0.
    I see this is a really old problem here :S

    I can not give admin login to you of course, but can change anything (there is nothing related 🙂 ) if I need to.

    Thanks!

      • This addon is terrible….
        https://sdnn70.com/en/

        Half of them working the another half of not. In the description there is Viemeo, but really there is no… you can not see the follower.
        But true others also dont show them…

        Do we have another easy solution to have social links?

        • Hello,

          Unfortunately, at the moment, there’s an only way for displaying your social counter. If you do not like this one, feel free and try using other plugins that have this functionality but please note that we cannot provide support for these.

          Best regards!

          • Hello,

            The problem it is not working :s I was thinking about fix your code, but then I will loose everything on your update.
            Would be good if you would fix the problems, and it would start to workd.
            For me the youtube channel countrar not woking at all it is 0, but if I clikc on it I arrive to the right place. So I think the id is good.
            The instagram the same.
            And the description is talking about Vimeo, but there is no possibility to give any vimeo ID for the counter.

            Will you fix these error soon? In some days, or we as users should change to another solutions?

            Thanks!

          • Hello,

            Please make sure that you are using the latest version of the theme. Please try using only our Caching plugin like WP Super Cache plugin set up according to our documentation from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/cache-plugin-install-and-configure/ Also, please note that you can update your theme on a subdomain for testing to check how it works. (you can use WP Staging plugin for that) If you need more technical assistance, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ and we are ready to investigate it closer to your problem.

            Best regards!

            Could you show me any web page where I can check it is really working?
            Instagram and youtube channel followers are there and if I subscibe for them the numbers will increase?

          • Hello,

            Yes, if your subscribers will be increased, the counter should have to be increased. Unfortunately, this blog account is not assigned to our support forum and that’s why you will need to open a new topic from here -> https://forum.tagdiv.com/forum/newspaper/ if you need more technical assistance.

    • Hello,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have any such an option that allows you to share a page but only a post and that’s why you did not find any option for social share in TD Composer for pages. Further, if you need more technical assistance, please open a new topic at our support forum from here -> and we are ready to assist you.

      Thank you!

    • Hello,

      Unfortunately, the theme does not have any such an option for that but please note that you can try using such a plugin with this functionality and check how it works.

      Best regards!

  13. Hi
    Despite clearing the cache and cdn, the numbers are still not updated. Do you have a clear solution to this situation? The theme is up to date. Installed properly and correctly. What is the problem?

  14. I can’t connect to my Instagram account. I get the following error after clicking on the Connect Instagram Account button:
    {“error_type”: “OAuthException”, “code”: 400, “error_message”: “Invalid scope field(s): basic”}

    • Hi,

      Indeed, Instagram has changed its API and that’s why the element is not working well. We have made the changes according to the new Instagram implementation and we are waiting for approval by the Instagram these modifications so we can include them in future updates.

      All the best!

  15. In my website the view counts is not working properly. In jetpack and also on Google analytics I am receiving thousands of views on one post but the view count on the website is not increasing neither in dashboard and neither on website. It seems like a problem with theme.. can you help?
