Newspaper 9.7 to 9.8 theme activation

New version of the Newspaper theme, for normal workflow, doesn't require an activation. Only because I haven't properly tested it, I will include a workaround in the post below.

newspaper theme 9.7

I must admit that I did not have any issues by not activating the new version. However, there is this activation step which might bug some people. I suggest that you keep your theme non-activated if it doesn’t nag you to do so.

But if it does, then you should use a workaround through this PHP file: td_ajax.php

So, in order to “activate” Newspaper theme 9.7 and up, your first step is navigate to
wp-content/plugins/td-composer/legacy/common/wp_booster/td_ajax.php

Then find if (self::self_check($id, $ec, $ad) === true) {
Change it to: if (self::self_check($id, $ec, $ad) === false) {
Then save the changes.
Next, login to your dashboard, visit the Newspaper > Theme panel > Activate theme
Then, jump to the bottom of the page and click where it says something like “Activate the theme manually”.
After that enter whatever you want as your envato and tagdiv keys and click Activate.

Done!

  1. thanks for it.. i successfully activated the theme… is it safe to activate theme like this and is there will be any problem or not .. please tell me

    • If it is not there then you have some old theme version. Or it could be the case that you have got your theme from a shady source. My solution applies to original theme.
      I would also suggest to check again, carefully.

    • Impossible. You did something wrong, or your theme is downloaded from a shady source. If you can’t figure it out then hire a developer, or buy the original theme.
      Cheers
