Reporter

As the name indicate Reporter is a News magazine theme. This is a fab series theme. The homepage of this theme is crafted with different modules which enables it to function as an intuitive news magazine interface.  For example there is an auto scrolling  news ticker below the menu bar. This will display latest posts from a particular category you select.  It holds a featured slider on the homepage.

Another interesting feature is the two highlight news boxes on the homepage. These 2 sections pull posts from  2 different categories to display on the homepage. This is also configurable from the theme option page.  The sidebar of the theme holds a section for featured video, tabbed content area, twitter updates, banner ads etc.

  • Este tema es muy bueno, pero deberían hacerlo con una fuente más adaptable para el idioma español…. cambia de fuente cuando encuentra una tilde.

    • Ibeeamaka

      Estimado tu sabes cual es el archivo donde muestra los slides con texto ya que solo me aparece la foto pero no me aparece la barra con el texto en la informacion.

  • Where can I find and customize the titles? Like “select a catagory” or “featured video”? In HTML? Where exactly?

        I found out that if you delete repo_slide option from wp_options table the slider works nomally until you update theme options

    Hello, I love this theme however could you tell me if it’s possible to add a custom header? Also, is it possible to remove the featured videos module? Thank you! 

    • Antonio Tesla

      for the custum header go to the images directory in the theme, find head.jpg open it with photoshop and modify it with your logo, obviously u must maintain the simmetry.

      for the featured video find sidebar.php  find something that looks like this

      Featured Video

      and delete it

      u can do it in the appearence/editor and choose sidebar.php from the right where all the theme files are listend

    Hi, I used this theme but the Fetured slide is not working, anybody can help me Please, Thank you.

    • Look at line 616 – 620 in the CSS.
      There’s a display:none that’s probably stopping you seeing the slider.Remove that and it works fine.

    Thanks.

    Timthumb well for the trash can, the_post_thumbnail made as well, crop, zoom.

  • Darknote

    Timthumb does not work at all the hosts, even by putting the chmod 777 or 755 on “cache”

    • Look at line 616 – 620 in the CSS.

      • darknote

        No, it changes nothing, display:none, thank you I know.
        I am going to resume(to take back) all the code, to delete(eliminate) timthumb and to use the_post_thumbnail.

  • Idmercu

    Featured Slide not working.  You probably should have made that the main thing you had working.  That is why we all downloaded this theme.  Now I have a generic theme missing the main feature.  NICE!!!

    • Look at line 616 – 620 in the CSS.

  • Idmercu

    The featured slider should have worked right out of the box.  I think I speak for us all on that one.  I have spent a few hours trying to fix it and I am still stuck.  Giving up now.  Nice theme guy.

  • Idmercu

    Works great now!  Set the cache file to 755, leave the index file in there alone.  Make sure you ‘set the featured’ picture in the post.  You will see a small blue link on the bottom right to do this.  Also make sure to name a category ‘featured’.   Do all these things and it should work. 

    • Sabrina Renée

      Hi! Using the Reporter theme now and I can’t seem to get the thumbnails to show up. Should I upload the images into the server, instead of into WordPress? And if so, where’s the appropriate location (folder) to upload them? Your help would be GREATLY appreciated – since you seem to be the only person to have success in this area 🙂

    I love this theme. Edited a few things to make it a little more custom, but found it to be very easy to navigate and I really have no idea what I’m doing. Everything works great!. Just one question: Is there any way to increase the number of posts shown in the “news ticker”? Thx.
