General Options that May Interfere with the Newspaper Theme

There are a few cases where general options may interfere with the Newspaper WordPress theme. Let’s take a look at the most frequent ones:

Options that may interfere: Jetpack Toolbar

When the admin bar no longer displays the tagDiv Composer button and it looks like this:

General Options: WordPress Website ToolbarThis situation is generated by the “Enable the toolbar” option from the Jetpack plugin.

To disable the toolbar, go to Jetpack > Settings > Writing and disable the “Enable the toolbar” module.

Yoast SEO

If the Yoast SEO plugin is enabled and when you click on an author’s name you are redirected to the home page instead of the author’s page,  you have to check the “Author Archives” option in the plugin’s options. To avoid this situation, the Author Archive option must be enabled.

To activate the option go to Yoast SEO > Search Appearance > Archives > Author Archives.

Example for subfolders containing .htaccess: wp-content, wp-content/plugins.

Options May Interfere: htaccess deny for all

You should check all the .htaccess files and remove the deny code. Now, check out the WP Editor, as it should work as expected.

Object Cache on Backend

When you make some settings in the Newspaper Theme Panel and save them, but when you refresh the page the modifications do not seem applied. When the old settings are still available it could be a situation generated by the object cache on the backend.

This can be added by a plugin or it can be a hosting option. You’ll need to identify the source that causes the object cache.

  • Hosting – the option needs to be disabled so the object cache can be cleared.
  • Object Cache Option from host Plugins – they must be deactivated and the file created by them, named “object-cache.php” must be deleted.
