  1. then pls leave some hints here or in my email. I need it badly. Touch of noob’s hand may damage the nice plugin !!

    • It’s the most basic CSS I can imagine. Google will tell you everything about font size.

  2. Hello,
    I just setup and configured the plugin according to my needs; and everything is ok except one.
    I’ve added it into my blog’s footer widget. The size of the title of news is same as the title size of article. But I want to see it smaller as the title of recent posts. Is it possible? pls help…thanks for the wonderful plugin :)

    • Hi,
      Of course you can do that with a bit of custom CSS added to your theme. The plugin itself does not control that.

      • thanks for the reply..can you pls give me the css code and where to apply….I’m noob in that :(

      • I’m sorry but this is not the type of support we can provide.

  3. i need the default field “menu_order”, but i can’t find a way to display it.

    • Menu order is available for custom post types of a “page” type while “news” is a post type of a “post” type, so it’s not available for news. You can force this however by adding page attributes for “news” post type using WP add_post_type_support function and your custom code.

  4. Hi,
    I want to display list of news on the front page of my website are there any short codes for it or any documentation which can help us .

    • Just make a custom query using WP_Query or get_posts() function. News is a custom post type named “news”

  5. Hi,

    I’m using News Manager Plugin in my website “”. I’ve enabled News Tags and News Categories, but its not work


    • Then post a topic on support forum and describe the issue in detail.

  6. Hello, please multisite support. How do I transfer news content to other pages within a further domain multisite


  7. Hi,

    I’ve added news list on my home page successfully, but problem is on the news page I could not see “Page Attributes” like WordPress Page create option, Also the featured image on news page could not show in my news page.

    Please help me..


    • And that’s correct. News is not a page, but a post type archive. If you create a page “news” and your permalink plugin setting is set to “news:” the archive page will be displayed. That’s how WP works.

      When it comes to the display: by defaultit’s handled by archive.php and single.php files, not page.php.

  8. What does “including date archives” mean in your description of the News Manager plugin?
    I am looking for a News plugin that will allow one to set the event date, after which that news item will be archived.
    If this plugin does that, I have not discovered the setting that enables it.

  9. Hi,

    One quick question. After the News Manager Plugin was installed and activated, if I visit:

    It displays the list of news posts, which is cool apart from one thing: the title of this page says “Shop” instead of something more relavent, say “News”. How do I change it?

    • OK. I figuredit out myself. I had to edit the header.php to make the change.

      Now, another issue. The news post editor does not allow me to add any sider bar. However, when a piece of news post is displayed, it shows left siderbat with empty content. Any idea?

      • Brian, if you want us to take a look at that please post a support ticket with a link to your site..

  10. Hi There,

    I want to show the latest news in my home page or in a post. Can you please provide us the short-code. It will be a great help.

    Looking for your co-operation ..:)


    • Harsh, please post this as a feature request in NM support forum here:

    also can you direct me to some web site that are using this plug in
    Can you help me out with this.

    Thanks in advance

  13. How customizable is this?

    • Please post a topic and explain what would you like to customize.

  14. please give me a shortcode this plugin i want to sreate a single news page

    • It doesn’t require any shortcodes. It’s as simple as writing and displaying a post.

  15. Hey guys. You plugin may be really cool and stuff, but you have to explain people how to use etc.

    • Ivan, it works just the same as publishing and editing posts, using a widget to display news archives etc. But if you’re having problem just post a support topic and describe it as precisely as you can.

  16. If you have any issues with the plugin please post a support topic here:

  17. On my site it is the problem with this plugin( I can’t add widgets).

    Has anyone of you the same problem?
