If you purchased Antisnews and you have not received a copy of Antisnews Premium please use the contact form to request your copy of Antisnews Premium (Previous posts mentioned the release of Antisnews Version 1.4. Antisnews is now split into a premium version and a free version. What was to have been Antisnews Version 1.4 is now Antisnews Premium version 1.0.)

Antisnews Premium is the new premium version of Antisnews. The previous versions of Antisnews are officially discontinued.  There will now be two versions of Antisnews:  Antisnews Premium and a free version of Antisnews.

The design of Antisnews is now more flexible. In previous versions each featured section had a fixed height. This created issues of content truncation. There is no longer a fixed height for any featured section or any of the content rows. The idea behind the fixed height was to prevent situations where one column might contain more content than another and create lots of white space in adjacent columns. This problem has been addressed with the inclusion of widgetized areas. The widgetized areas can serve as content fillers so that you can avoid excessive white space. This change also allows for the increasing of your thumbnail sizes which can be done from the dashboard in Antisnews Premium.

Both the premium and free versions of Antisnews include a CSS Styling tool. The tool in the free version is a lighter version of the one in the premium version that allows for a few basic css style changes via the dashboard. In the premium version the tool allows for a larger number of CSS modifications.   Below are some examples of the settings from the styling tool:

Page Body

Page Background Color.
The background color for your website pages. Hex value only. Example #000000. For no background color enter the word [none] without brackets.

Page Background Image

Background Image Repeat Status

Background Image left/right/center align

Background Attachment

The font size for your website pages. Include numerical value and font type. Example 10px, 10pt, 1.1em, 75%.

Other settings you will be able to change with the CSS Styling Tool are shown below. Each section comes with its own set of editable options

  • Site title/Tagline Row CSS Settings
  • Tagline CSS Settings
  • Horizontal Navigation Menu CSS Settings
  • Date Search Row CSS Settings
  • Leaderboard Ad Row CSS Settings
  • Featured Category 1 (Slidewhow) CSS Settings

  • Sticky Posts Block CSS Settings
  • Footer CSS Settings
  • Images Border CSS Settings
  • Blockquotes CSS Settings
  • Comment List CSS Settings
  • CSS Settings for page navigation links
  • CSS Settings for tables
  • Form Field Settings
  • Breaking News CSS Settings

The free version of Antisnews will contain the page body settings along with:

  • Site title/Tagline Row CSS Settings
  • Tagline CSS Settings
  • Horizontal Navigation Menu CSS Settings
  • Date Search Row CSS Settings
  • Leaderboard Ad Row CSS Settings
  • Footer CSS Settings

In Antisnews Premium you can control the thumbnail sizes for each featured section. You can also control how many post excerpts to display for all featured sections.

Both the free and premium versions of Antisnews provide the ability to control the excerpt length for all featured categories.

There will be some things that will need to be reset when you switch from your current version of Antisnews to Antisnews Premium. In particular, Antisnews no longer uses the Tier 2 120 filler space. That area is now fully widgetized, so if you have an ad in that space you will need to move it to a text widget and drag it to Magazine Sidebar Home Two. The filler space in row 3 “Tier 3 Right” is also now widgetized, so if you have content in that space it will need to be placed in a text widget and dragged to Magazine Sidebar Home Three.

When contacting to receive your copy of Antisnews Premium, please provide the same email address that was used to purchase your copy of Antisnews.
