          I put the label on upper and lower case but does not appear, it is loaded and does not show it. The headline news not shown either.
          The images of the posts are not shown, how should you put them?
          Best regards.

          • Dalih

            Please enable and set tag of headline to show it. And about images in post please set feature image in every posts and pages. Thanks.

    I have all new install. The old and the new WordPress blog have the same problem. 

    • Dalih

      Errors are likely in existence of your image. getimagesize function did not find your picture. please check your files again. and please check back file your permision. make sure your file permision 664 to can be accessed by that function. Thanks.

    • Brenda

      I had the same problem and I could figure it out. When you name a featured image it has to be physically present in the post gallary. If it is from an external url or if it is from a separate post, this gives an error message and break the site …..

      • Dalih

        Please use internal url thanks.

    Great template, one of the best free for news ou there.

    Hi, Dalih.

    i used free version of Smart News Theme.

    i don’t know why, but sometimes when i edit at “Smart News Option” suddenly there’s pop up in IDM to download and my page change to blank page with message in the middle said like “i change footer” (but i don’t change it)

    And now i can’t open my Smart News Option after i change my url 




    /* Style Definitions */
    {mso-style-name:”Table Normal”;
    mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
    mso-fareast-font-family:”Times New Roman”;

    add www in the address of your blog  at General –> WordPress address (URL) and Site address (URL)

    i’ve got message:

    Hello XXX,

    Thank you for using this theme. But, you do not have permision to use this theme more than1 theme. You are currently used 1 theme.nIf you want use more than 1 you can contact Smart News Team at to Upgrade it or you can manage your theme at Manage My Themes and your User ID for login is

    but when i go to “Manage My Themes” there’s no link i can’t click except delete and logout option.

    what should i do?

    • Dalih

      Please download again the original themes, after that please reactivate the theme and reactivate the email. That’s all. I hope this can solve your problem. Thanks. :D . Have a nice day.

      • Lam Duong

        What email did you mention here? and How to get a ID to access the Manage Theme potal? and one more thing is: does paid version have the same issues like this?

        • Dalih

          You can set the email at your user profile email. Thanks.

          • Lam Duong

            I intend to buy your pro version but I do not know whether I can using this theme or not although I love this theme very much. Some body please tell me what can I do since whenever I click on Smart News Theme Options, it had a message tell me to download again and do not remove tho footer link. I do not remove any thing.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Esteban Mucientes (@mediotic)

            Hey Dalih!!

            I’m using this theme and I’m getting Lam’s same message. I haven’t edited the footer links neither any other protected file (changed some things on styles.css and several phps) but I’ve got the same message error and the theme seems to be activated.

            Can you check if there’s some error validating the credentials?

            Of course I’ve reuploaded the theme and it doesn’t work.

            Also, we got a trojan alert when loading the website, so if you can check it, it’ll be great.

            Thanks in advance. 

          • Dalih

            If the footer not edited the message will not appear. Other alternative is get pro version, in pro version you can edit footer links and any files and I will upgrade your account to unlimited websites. So you can use this theme to unlimited websites. Please go to to get pro version. Thanks.

        • Bala

          • Bala

            And also pls help to insert google ads inside the posts. It will be more helpful to a newbie like me.

          • Dalih

      • Georgi Kolev

        Hello Dalih. I find it,but now I have another problem. I write a news, post picture, upload and picture for featured slider,but they don’t show it. Just show a flash image “Loading” ? What is the problem ?

        • Dalih

          How about your internet connection? What plugins are you used? May be it crash with other plugins. Please let me know. Thanks.

          • Georgi Kolev

            No problem, I understand where I wrong. But there are some problems to solve on site. Options that included his often contradict one another, and this confuses me, but little by little I will be fine. I’ll ask if it is possible to drop the quick start package all template - this will is - easy to edit. Thanks :)

    Hi Dalih! I liked all thour themes very much, yet can’t use them :( When I want to install them in my sites, there appear some warnings, and it seems like the themes are broken. Only this one theme worked, didn’t show any warnings, yet I can’t verify it. My e-mail address written in my site was wrong, that’s the matter, I changed it, still it shows that old, wrong one, and says that the verification e-mail has been sent to that address. How can I fix this? Cuz I want to use this theme very much. Also please tell me where I can get the complete versions of all the other themes, which will be installed and work normally on wordpress.

    Hai Dalih,
    Good and immediate response for my doubt that was asked a week ago.
    I have again raised with a question and hopes that you will solve it quickly. :)
    my doubt is there are only 2 ad choices that is  the leader board and another one is the small ad that appears in the right side of posts.
    Is it possible to show ads inside the posts (I mean inside the post content box). i.e., the right side of the post content of ad size 300×250 and it is possible to add an ad inbetween the top nav bar and posts.
    Thanks in advance…
    Waiting for your quick and smart reply.

    • Dalih

      You can add your own add if you can see the full php code. And full php code only in pro version. Please visit this page to get pro version.

    Good Dalih,

    First I want to thank you, the theme is outstanding. I am very interested in buying the pro version of its theme, but I would like to knowif the version you need to turn pro once you have purchased. I’d also like to know if once you have the theme I can make changes to it and change the footer. I want to make a personalized web and I like its structure, but I like to put the theme to my liking. I hope to hear from you soon and thank you very much for your time.



    • Dalih

      Yes in pro version you can put your own links at the footer. And the code of php and stylesheet is not encrypt so you can edit the theme and create you own personalized web. Thanks.

    I want to know if its available RTL and translated to Arabic?

  • Luke

    Hi Dalih,

    Sincere thanks for the great theme – I have some questions if you could be so kind as to spare some time:

    1. I cannot get the headline ticker to show up? Is this a widget perhaps? Only in the pro version? Or does it require a certain category or tag?

    2. Same as 1 – but for trending topics? I cannot see this in my header?

    3. What are the extras obtained if I buy the pro version? Do you have a list of what extra elements I would get.

    Many Thanks Dalih!


    • Luke

      When I say ‘ headline ticker ’ I mean the one under 

    • Dalih

      Good morning,

      The headline ticker need enabled through theme options. Yes this is require a certain tag to show up and you also need set the ticker tag in theme options.
      Trending topic also same with headline ticker.
      In pro version you can edit footer link with your own footer via theme options and you will get php and css in no encrypt files. So you can edit the theme with what you want. In pro version I will activate your account to unlimited websites so you can install this theme to unlimited websites.

      Thanks and have a nice day.

    Halo mas Dalih…
    Saya beberapa saat yg lalu mengintal theme smartnews ini, trus saya nyoba utk mengedit css dan html nya karena saya ingin membuat theme ini lebih simpel menurut selera saya pribadi. Saya tidak mengubah bagian footer sama sekali, tetpai setelah beberapa saat kemudian, ketika saya login ke dalam halaman admin kok slalu ada peringatan  yg tertulis ” Please do not remove or change the footer sponsor link, automatic download original themes!” ” dan otomatis mendownload themenya….itu kenapa ya mas?apa memang tidak boleh ya megedit css dan htmlnya sama sekali?

    Makasih sebelumnya bila direspon….:) 

    • Dalih

      Dalam versi pro php dan stylesheet file nya tidak di enkripsi, serta tidak akan muncul peringatan tersebut.

    Thanks for this incredible theme. Great job.
    However, I’m having some problems with the first “newest” post that appears. The text is substituted by some code and I’ve been looking at all the possible errors and I can not find the place or menu tu correct it. All “new” posts in category pages are all just replaced by some nonsense… Can you help me, please?

    This is a wonderful theme which I found to be perfect for my website. I am only having 2 problems with it.
    1) Top Nav is not showing even though I created a custom menu for it as the date still shows in the far left corner unlike your demo of the theme.
    2) “Breaking News” does not show at the top even though I set the correct tags and have enabled “Headlines with Breaking News”.
    Thank you

    Hi again. When utilizing the “featured content” slider, is this image feeding from “featured image” uploaded to the post? If so, what is the ideal size for the featured image in order to have the image appear properly in the slider?

      Yes, the image use image from “featured image” in post. You can use image with size more 630x300px. If the image bigger than 630×300 will automatic cropped.

Then just a few minutes ago after publishing a single article it deactivated my site saying “please do not remove the footer” and wanted me to download another coppy. I have NOT removed anything. Is this a bug? I dont want to have to overright everything and then start all over.. Again I havent removed anything.. Help me as this is a very nice theme but I can not afford to buy it right now.

    hi, I just downloaded the theme, but it seems I’m not able to edit some of the theme file including header.php, index.php etc… (so it is not only the footer) they all are encrypted… Is there something wrong with it or should I go premium to edit header and index (I dont need to change footer)?

      Yes for smart news theme, I have encrypt some files. You can edit all php and css files without encryption in full version. Thank you.

        ı would like to buy full version but I’m wondering about one thing. Word count for pre-description (I mean summary of post shown) on main page is not enough for me. I would like to make it at least 20-30 words for each post. If I can manage to do this do you think the theme crashes or not?

          Hello Emir, sorry for delay responds. I was very sleepy last night. So I was asleep. You can change the pre-description in main page with change the parameter of content_limit function to (’30 ‘). You can change in header-featured-loop1.php, home-featured-loop2.php, etc.. Thank you.

    Hi, how to enable “Breaking news” and “headline” option ?

    • dalihsusilo

      Please go to theme options > Layout Settings > Choose header style

  • DalihNet

    To enable breaking news and headlines, you need to set your post tag with tag key. For example set your post tag with “breaking” and then in your theme options > layout settings please find “Input comma-separated tags for the headline news” and fill that fill with “breaking” save your theme options. that’s all. Hope this can help you. Thank you for your comment.

    Firstly congratulations on the great work. I really like the Smart News template and I already bought the premium version.

    However, I want to make some little changes, specially because I must to translate some words to spanish, and I need your help. I hope you can help me:

    1. I want to translate the words ‘ago’ and ‘comments’ that accompany the summary of each post in the homepage and archive pages (I´ve changed the words of each post). Another option would be to remove the information ’3 days ago’ from the homepage. Where in the Editor can I do it)

    2. I want translate the words that appear in the breadcrumbs indicating the route. Where can I do it?

    3. I’ve noticed that some images are published sometimes deformed. That is, just not in the post but in the cover or when in files. What size is recommended for photographs to appear always in the correct proportions? 630×300′

    Thank you very much and congratulations on the great work.

    • dalihsusilo

      You can translate in language file in lang folder. Yes you right, minimum size is 630×300 px. Thank you for your comment. :D

      I’ve seen your site, I think you need to set feature image in all of your posts. Thank you.

  • dalihsusilo

    Please open smart news theme option > layout setting. find “Input comma-separated tags for the featured content” and set your tag as you want. default is “featured”. and then if you want your latest post display in main slider you need to set post tag “featured”.
