No matter what feed aggregator plugin I use, the theme gets broken and nothing is outputted from the feed. Right now I use Feedzy, added the shortcodes( the problem is the same with widgets) and as you see the sidebar content and so on gets vanished. http://goo.gl/RuObZt

Currently, we don’t try using the DW Focus theme with feed aggregator plugins yet, therefore, it is hard for me to confirm that it can be compatible with DW Focus or not. You can send me your plugin package or link to aggregator plugins we will download and try install on my demo to check it Or you can send me username & password of your site for further checking.

This is the plugin I used https://wordpress.org/plugins/feedzy-rss-feeds/ and a shortcode [feedzy-rss feeds="http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/rss" max="4" target="_blank" meta="yes" summary="yes" summarylength="44" thumb="yes" ]

DW Focus is the most versatile theme I used.
Currently I have this issue and don’t know if it’s a compatibility problem or not. With other themes the plugin worked.

I miss the archive large thumbnail from the old theme version( not really an issue but was outstanding) and due do DW Megamenu, the option to show dropdown categories on mobile menu. And those are basically the only things that keep me to consider it the best.

I have checked the FEEDZY RSS Feeds plugin on our demo and it working fine (Screenshot) and not see the issue that you are facing here. Please send me username & password of your site for further checking, I will check and help you resolve it.
In the latest version, we have remove the archive large thumbnail from the old version. About the Mega menu, I have checked it and see that it was a bug from our plugin, I sent and noticed our technical team about this problem. We will check and fix it and update it as soon as possible.

About the dropdown categories on mobile, you can try the following code:

@media (max-width: 997px) {
.nav li:hover .dw-sub-menu {
    display: block;
}
.dw-sub-menu .dw_focus_widget_news_grid .post .entry-meta, .dw-sub-menu .widget_news-grid .post .entry-meta {
    display: none;
}
.nav li:hover .dw-mega-menu {
    display: block;
}
.dw-sub-menu {
    position: relative;
}
.dw-sub-menu .entry-thumbnail {
    display: none;
}
.dw-sub-menu .dw_focus_widget_news_grid .post .entry-title, .dw-sub-menu .widget_news-grid .post .entry-title {
   display:none;
}
.main-navigation .dw-mega-menu .dw-mega-menu-tabs .dw-mega-menu-tab-content {
    display: none;
}
.dw-mega-menu-tabs .dw-mega-menu-tab > a {
    width: 100%;
}
}

Hope this helps !

  • Well I guess the problem is not from the theme. Checked Again, all my plugins active and DW Focus active, no problem at all.
    . Feedzy active and DW Focus active, plus 3 or 4 plugins active( one of them DW Megamenu) little compatibility. I see the feeds but for example DW Tabs don’t work anymore … etc.
    . With Feedzy active, DW Focus active and other 2 or 3 plugins active, it doesn’t work at all.
    I didn’t thought it could be only a plugin issue as nobody posted something like that on wordpress.org plugin forum. I guess I have to post the issue there.

  • About the archive large thumbnail maybe I’ll find someone with an older version of the theme, if I’m permitted to replicate the code somehow on my child theme, or find a tutorial on how to style differently the first post. I want that kind of stuff for my stiky posts. The first stiky post( if they are more) to appear on top of the category, with a different look than the rest.

  • And tank you, you noticed the technical team about the menu. Since DW Megamenu I missed the option to view dropdown categories in mobile menu.

Weird things happen, actually. Installed a plugin to enable php codes in my text widget( well, I’m using it for a time) and tried to output a feed without any plugin. Using PHP, the code from this tutorial http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-display-any-rss-feed-on-your-wordpress-blog/

With some feed url’s encountered the same problems as with the plugin case, explained before. With some, the theme partially broken( DW Megamenu, DW Tabs, some other third party plugins), with other, beside the broken stuff, everything that had to appear after my text widget, other widgets, the footer dissapeared.

Honestly I’m puzzled. I don’t know what some feed links have to do with all this.

About the dropdown categories on mobile, how can a CSS tweak can help me to display them on the mobile menu? I thought it has something to do with some php code, that must be added, or edited.

At the moment, you can not edit to reduce the first post in the archive page. We will discuss about it in the next version.
About the dropdown categories on mobile, the Css codes that I sent to you in the previous answer will allow you can hover menu items to display categories. I have tested on our demo. However, it not smooth as old version. Because, in the latest version we have used the Mega menu and disabled dropdown categories on mobile. We will discuss about this feature and find a best solution for menu section on mobile. Hope you know what I mean, my friend.
