    Hello Mr, Krisei!

    My name is Fredrik Lindgren and I purchased your theme, NewsCast about three years ago. Im running the site but I have discovered problems with the web browser Internet Explorer. It seems that several of our readers cant view the site properly.

    The problem is that IE doesn’t show the header slider and pictures in the articles.

    This is a serous problem for us. We are loosing readers and companies for advertising.

    How can you help me. Im not a programer but Im the one how are running the site.

    Your information provided back on this issue will be shown to some one who can help me with code programing.

    Note: the site is currently in Swedish but that should not be any concern as longest you are checking the problem with slider and pictures.

    Best regards.

    Fredrik Lindgren


    Hi Fredrik ,

    First I would suggest downloading the most recent theme files from your downloads on Themeforest. The version you are using is quite old and there have been quite a few major bug fixes and general updates since version 1.2.2.

    The second isssue is the theme has not been updated to officially support wordpress 3.5. It didn’t have any issues with 3.4 and I don’t know of any major issues with 3.5, but there could be.

    Most likely updating the theme will fix your issues, but when you do update make sure to back up any changes you have made to the theme files so that you can re-add those in.




    Hi Devin!

    Than you so much for your answer and information. Our problem with IE has been solved due to the new version of the theme.

    However we have lost control of our menu manager of pages and categories. These controls are no longer in News Cast Options in the admin panel.

    As a temporarily solution, we are currently using the menu manager in WordPress.

    But we really need the menu manager i News Cast Options to administrate pages and categories.

    What is wrong? How can you help?

    We have installed the theme on two different sites, one is our local host and test site and the outer is The result is the same on both installations.

    We installed the new theme via our admin in WordPress, Appearance and themes, Install Themes, Upload.

    Best regards,

    Fredrik Lindgren


    Hi Fredrik

    Can you expand on what you mean because ‘menu manager’ ‘administer pages and categories’ makes me think that when you click Appearance > Menu , you no longer see pages or categories. Please set me up with a temp admin account and send the credentials to usjahm (at) gmail (dot) com. Also please send a screenshot of the page or explanation (use the url inside the backend) where the problem is and what you would like to do specifically that you currently are unable to do.




    Hello Nick!

    Thank you so much for your response. I have send you an email to your attached email address. I also made an temporarily log in for you. Its in the mail.

    To make it a bit easier to understand I also attached a picture of the Adminpanel. Pleas let me know if I should expand more information to you if i have made my self unclear.

    Best regards,

    Fredrik Lindgren


    Hi Fredrik,

    It sounds like you mean the old menu manager that was replaced with the new wordpress version. Which would be 100% correct as Kriesi no longer uses his own menu manager and instead all themes just use the built in WordPress Menus manager.

    If that is so, its working as intended :)





    That option became redundant thus it was removed. You can now create the same vertical menu with a custom menu widget (anpassad menu). You would go to appearance > menu first and create a brand new menu , and pick the pages/posts etc that you want that menu to display. Then you add the name of the new menu you created to the widget. I created the ‘sidebar-menu’ for you, and just added 2-3categories to it, and added it to a widget .. which you can find in your Inaktiva Widets box in Appearance > Widgets.

    Use the anpasader lankar option in appearance > menu to create whichever links and call them whatever you want and save them to sidebar-menu and you will see the menu items once you add the widget from inactive widgets to the sidebar.




    Hi Dave and Nick!

    Once again, thank you so much for your quick response. And Nick, your Swedish is great:)

    Nick, thank you for your time and effort in making the side bar menu. We appreciate it.

    I still have one question. How can we make an menu like the one you have on the Newscast Live Preview at Themeforest.

    This is how we used to have our menu. The small top menu for pages and the larger menu for categories.

    We cant find a way to administrate this menu style. At the moment our menu is displaying the same things in both menus.

    How can we make this work. We like the way your menu is working in the Live Preview Newscast theme.

    Nick, i will send you an email with an attached picture of the menu.

    Best regards.

    Fredrik Lingren



    I received your photo of the menu.

    1) Your image Image You Sent Me

    2) Your live site Your Live Site

    3) Demo site Demo Site

    You said that you are missing a menu, which confused me since I thought it was on the sidebar that you had a missing widget. It seems to me that all the menus are where they are supposed to be in the header.





    Ok I see the problem. You don’t have any way to access the second menu in the header.

    This is the fix:

    Please open up header.php located in base folder of the theme and find line 103 which looks like

    <div class="nav_wrapper">

    Also find line 135 which looks like

    <div id="headextras" class='rounded'>

    You will need to delete everything *between* lines 103-135 *but DO NOT delete 103 and 135 themselves, just everything in between.

    And paste the code below instead of the lines you just deleted.

    <!-- Navigation for Website -->
    wp_nav_menu( array('theme_location' => 'main-menu' , 'menu' => 'Main Navigation', 'menu_class' => 'nav', 'echo' => true, 'fallback_cb' => '', 'before' => '', 'after' => '', 'link_before' => '', 'link_after' => '', 'depth' => 0, 'context' => 'frontend'));
    </div><!-- end nav_wrapper -->

    <div class="catnav_wrapper">
    <!-- Navigation for Categories starts here -->
    wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'cat-menu' ,'menu' => 'Category Navigation', 'menu_class' => 'catnav', 'echo' => true, 'fallback_cb' => '', 'before' => '', 'after' => '', 'link_before' => '', 'link_after' => '', 'depth' => 0, 'context' => 'frontend', 'walker' => new description_walker() ));

    </div><!-- end catnav_wrapper: -->

    Now save the file and open up /framework/helper-functions/nav-menu.php and find line 16 which looks like

    add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menu' );

    delete everything below that line and replace it with code below, *do not delete line 16 itself^

    function register_my_menu() {
    register_nav_menus( array(
    'main-menu' => __( 'Main Navigation', 'avia' ),
    'cat-menu' => __( 'Category Navigation', 'avia' ),
    ) );

    You should now see in Appearance > Menus , the dropdown where you would select the two separate menus as is shown here The big boxes are called category navigation and the navigation on top of them (the smaller of the two) is the Main Navigation.




    Hi Fredrik,

    If you aren’t comfortable modifying so much code, the theme Documentation outlines the way the theme will automatically setup the menus by using specific menu names.

    B 2) Setting up the Menus of your site – top

    The theme has space for two different menus that can be created with the new WordPress3 Menu Manager. You can find the menu manager at appearance-> Menu

    To set up the menus create 2 new menus and enter the Name “First” at Menu Name. This Menu will populate the small top menu. Save that and create another Menu that is called “Second”, this one will controll the bigger menu below.

    Now before you add any menu items take a look at the top right of your browser window: you will find The “Howdy admin and Logout link” Directly below you can see the “screen options” tab. Click that tab and a panel with additional options will open. Check the checkbox in “Show advanced menu properties” that says “Description”

    Now set up your menus. If you add Menu Items to the “First” Menu you dont need to fill in the description. It wont get displayed. However the Second menus top level items display the description directly bellow the Menu Item title in your front end.

    Attention: you might need to delete some pre filled descriptions if you use pages in the second menu, since wordpress adds a content excerpt automatically to those items. Just remove that and enter a very short description of 2-7 words

    Note: If you purchased this item before wordpress 3 was released and update it you will see that my very own “old” Menu Manager is gone now in favor of the new wordpress Menu Manager and you need to re-enter your menus here. Sorry for that ;)

    So as long as you have 2 menus named First and Second, they will populate those areas.




    Devin and Nick,

    We are so grateful for your professional support at all times and fast response.


    im going to have a programer guy to have look at the code you provided and then make an decision if we really need to instal it. Your description was very understandable and the link to the admin example was a grate help.


    I have followed your description to fix the first and second menu. Everything thing is working fine. Most likely we can stay with this menu manager.

    Your help has been perfect and Im confident to have your as an theme partner in the future.

    Thanks guys:)

    Best regards,

    Fredrik Lindgren



    Glad that Nick & Devin could help you :)

    Best regards,
