Update: Like NewsFrame but want more options and premium support? Check out NewsFrame Pro, available in two flavors: as a child theme for the base NewsFrame theme, or as a standalone option.
I. Adding Your Own Logo
The template is configured to use either an image logo or the site name on the top banner. To use a graphic logo, save your
logo as logo.png. Transparent PNG files are recommended to avoid strange styling with the banner. IMPORTANT: The logo.png file must be uploaded to your blog root via FTP. Don’t upload it via the WordPress Media Uploader. For example, if WordPress is installed in a subdirectory named “blog,” upload logo.png to that specific directory. If the template detects that you have a “logo.png” file, it will automatically display it. If it doesn’t, it will display
the site name. So if you add a logo, and then decide to use the site title, simply delete the logo.png file from your
server. Additionally, you can add a new logo to replace an old one by overwriting the logo.png file on your server.
Upload your logo via FTP or through the WordPress Media Manager, and then paste the URL in the “Site Logo” field in the Theme Options panel.
II. Customizing the template.
Use a child theme or a custom CSS plugin to override the theme’s core styles and templates.Take advantage of this file to prevent theme updates from wiping out all of your customizations
Please note that if you customize other elements of the template, such as the index.php or single.php file, your changes
will be discarded with theme updates. If you want to make changes to these files, make a backup and/or manually replace the
necessary modified files after updates.
III. Using the Full-Width Template
The full-width template lets you create a page (not a post) without a sidebar easily. To do so, select “Full Width” in the
Page Attributes>Template section on the page editing screen.
IV. Using Full-Width Posts
Use this plugin and select the full-width blog post template from the post editing screen.
V. Using Featured Images and Subtitles on Posts
The default front page is configured to automatically display a post’s featured image and subtitle below the article
headline. The feature image will not be automatically added to the individual post page itself; you’ll need to insert it
into the content to display it on the full article page.
Subtitles are displayed on individual article pages and the home page (latest post). To add an article subtitle, use the
the custom meta box that appears on the post editing screen.
VII. Page of Blog Posts
Use the Blog Posts Page template to display recent blog posts on a static page.
VIII. Featured Videos
Use the featured video box on the post editing screen to display a featured video on the latest post as well as on single post pages. If used, this video overrides the featured-image thumbnail on the front page.
IX. Featured Story Management
Activate the option via the theme options panel, and add the tag “featured” to the article you want to promote to the featured news section. The most recent one will be displayed.
X. Home Page Widget Areas
This feature was added in conjunction with a new widget for category-specific posts (NewsFrame Category Posts in Appearance>Widgets).
