  5. having the same issue too

  6. Please note that the import of demo content is not supported/included with our service.

  7. How can I activate this theme? Festinger Team, need help from you guys.

  8. Hi,

    What issues are you experiencing? :slight_smile:

  9. An issue has been encountered while trying to validate your license key.

    Can’t install pre-built websites

  10. Hey @excesc ,

    Hope you are doing great!

    Currently, we do not support the demo install/setup:

    It usually needs to connect on the devs server to download the demo, so it usually is almost impossible to bypass the protection.

  11. Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme has been updated to 11.5.1

  12. The cloud library plugin doesn’t work, it says: “Envato key is missing or invalid. Please register your theme using a valid key and try again.” When I click on a template. Is there a way to fix this?

  13. @Nedds12 – welcome here, please upgrade your account in order to receive paid support for the items.

  14. actually having the same issue as the previous user - “The cloud library plugin doesn’t work, it says: “Envato key is missing or invalid. Please register your theme using a valid key and try again.” When I click on a template. Is there a way to fix this?”

  15. Hi @theinvestedmind – please note that we do not support the import of demo templates with our services.

    The issue here is, that Envato requires one license key per domain, so that means we have to pay for every customer if we allow the import of demo content and that’s financially not feasible.

    I’m not sure if there is another way to set up header and footer without importing from Cloud.
    If its not possible to setup header/footer manually - this theme is almost unusable.

    Although we cannot use the cloud templates, we can actually import the demo
    Newspaper > Prebuilt Websites

  17. Hi @axcer – please note that the import of demo content is not available with our services.

    Please update Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme 11.5.1 to version 11.5. @FestingerUpdates

  19. We would LOVE to update to its latest version, but we encountered an issue with the activation with its latest version. We’re unable to bypass the security in its latest version, as it’s making a lot of server API calls. We will update the file as soon as possible once we got a solution for this.

    Meanwhile, please have a look at this thread which explains the entire process. :slight_smile:

  29. Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme has been updated to 12.1.1

  30. Hi,

    Few days before buying the Festinversvault LTD membership I purchased a site from someone on BHW (who I shan’t name as it has no bearing on our discussion), and my purchase had come with the Newspaper 12 theme (from Themeforest) installed, but activated with the seller’s license key, and the seller refuses to give me his key for obvious reasons (and I was OK with his refusal by the way, I can totally understand why he’d not share his private license key with anyone, so I didn’t insist on this,)

    But now that I have access to this theme via the Festingersvault plugin I would like to get my hands on my own license for this theme so that I can - obviously - have control over everything that’s related to my site. But the problem that I’m foreseeing is that once I deactivate the current theme in order to install the one downloaded via the Festinger plugin (so that I can get its own license key) I might lose the configuration of the current installation (that the BHW seller had done for my site before delivering the site). And this is a problem because I already toyed with the theme’s configuration (once) after I had received the site from the seller, and I broke some stuff while checking my new site out, and I asked the seller to fix the stuff that I broke and he did it, but then he had told me that the next time that I’d brake stuff he’d have to charge me, which I didn’t like. I understood him, I just wasn’t OK with it, and I’d obviously want to avoid going through future problems by having my own license key for this theme.

    So (and this brings me to the point of this discussion), how do I go about obtaining my own license key through my Festinger membership, for the Newspaper theme, without breaking the current configuration of my site? Please advise!

  31. Hello @rayden1980 – thanks a lot for your comment here and I moved your topic to the support topic of the NewsPaper theme on our forums.

    You can disable/uninstall/replace the theme without losing your data as it will all remain stored in your database.

    Please note that we do not provide license keys as the import of demo content is generally not supported by our services. However, we try to include as much offline demo content as possible with our services.

  32. what is demo content? My site has real content, not demo :slight_smile:

    Also, when I said that I’d like to preserve the current configuration I meant the pages, posts, footer (which, by the way, is full of shortcodes and CSS coding if I saw correctly), the category settings, etc. Are all of these things saved in the database??

    Regarding those plugins… I can see most of them in my current list of plugins, but I’m not seeing the td-composer one (I have td-composer installed, but you didn’t mention it, so does this mean that you don’t have it??)

  33. Hi, that is 100% correct. All saved configurations and data will remain saved in the database. =)

    Can you link me to this direct source, so I can check it for you?

  34. Sweet :slight_smile:

    what do you mean? That I give you the login details of my site, or??

  35. No I mean, you’re referring to the ‘TD-Composer’ and I’m not familiar with that particular plugin.

    So I was asking you to link the source of this particular plugin you’re referring to.

  36. oh, ok…

    Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the source of this plugin (actually, I didn’t find the source of any plugins for this theme), but here’s a link to their documentation site that mentions this plugin: Newspaper Theme Documentation - How to Use tagDiv Composer

    Also, I wouldn’t mind giving you the login info for my site if you think you can find the source of this plugin better, but let me know how to send you the details privately as I don’t want to post them here for everyone to see :smiley:

  37. new update for this theme (12.1 → 12.1.1). Can we get it? :smiley:

  38. Sure @FestingerUpdates – please update.

    @rayden1980 – if you use the ‘Request new update’ button on the download page, our staff will be notified instantly about your request =)

  39. Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme has been updated to 12.1.1

  40. Ok, I’ll remember it. Thanks for the heads-up :slight_smile:

  41. wait, I can’t see the “Request new update” button! Can you please highlight it or something?

  42. oh, I first had to click on the theme itself to open it up in my FV account lol. My bad :smiley:

  43. No worries, I’m glad you found it. =)

  44. Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme has been updated to 12.2 .

  45. I noticed that the theme advertises itself in the console, is there a way to remove this?

            Theme: Newspaper by 2022
            Version: 12.2 (rara)
            Deploy mode: deploy
            uid: 63ca198d6850f
  46. Hi @Twistler,

    Could you let us know if this is the frontend of the WP instance or backend?

  47. Sorry, I meant it shows up in the “Elements” of the Inspector and it is front end.

  48. Hi @Twistler,

    Please enter the following code into your functions.php and it will remove the HTML comments from your source code:

    function callback($buffer) {
        $buffer = preg_replace('/<!--(.|s)*?-->/', '', $buffer);
        return $buffer;
    function buffer_start() {
    function buffer_end() {
    add_action('get_header', 'buffer_start');
    add_action('wp_footer', 'buffer_end');


  49. I have downloaded all the plugins and activated with the exception of tagdiv cloud library which won’t activate as the theme isn’t present, but if I add the theme first I get a fatal error, seems to be a chicken and egg situation, can you advise correct activation procedure please, thanks

  50. Hi @adysoden,

    Thanks a lot for your comment. Would you be able to share the fatal error, please?

  51. Newspaper - Best News & WooCommerce WordPress Theme has been updated to 12.3.

  52. Dear valued community member,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. This is an automated response from our helpful community robot, @festybot.

    We understand that you have a question regarding a license key. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide license keys as it is financially infeasible to purchase one for every customer. However, we would like to assure you that 99,99% of the themes posted in our WordPress repository will work without the need for a license key.

    Meanwhile, I’m tagging my teammate @festingerupdates to see if there is any offline demo content available. If it’s available, he will be uploading it as soon as possible for you. You will be receiving an email reply if it’s available.

    If you are experiencing any issues or need additional support with certain features of a theme, please feel free to reach out to one of our team members by tagging them in your message.

    Thank you for being a part of our community and helping to make it even more awesome.

    Best regards,
    @festybot (Please note that I am not a human)

  53. For the people that can’t get the tagDiv Cloud Templates working/import demo and getting this error

    Into your functions.php of your child theme (so you won’t lose the changes with the next updates) add this code - or use Code Snippets Pro 3.2.1 – Festinger Vault if you don’t have/want to use child theme:

    // Newpaper Theme Cloud Templates Fix
    add_filter( 'http_request_args', function( $parsed_args, $url ) {
        if ( $url === '' ) {
            $parsed_args['body']['deploy_mode'] = 'dev';
        return $parsed_args;
    }, 10, 2 );

    and you are good to go

    PS:: If there is any issue with the code @Festinger please remove this comment.
