सामान्य प्रश्न

I have installed the plugin. What next?

Please go to WP Top News menu -> API Settings. Use your own API Key or use the default limitted key.
After that, go to WP Top News menu -> General Settings submenu and select your news source. Copy the Shorcode [wp_top_news] and use it in any page or post.

How can I remove powered by link?

This is Free API provided by newsapi.org. So, there is nothing we can do right now.

I have changed News source, but news feed not uppdating

As there is a cache active for 15 minute, so you have to wait for 15 minute to see the updated news.

How can I reduce the Cached time?

The API we are using here has a limitation for 15 minute delay news update. So there is nothing we can do now.

How to increase requests per day for a specific API Key?

You can register to NewsAPI.org and get your personal API key and use it in widget API Key field. This will increase your requests per day limit.

I have changed News source but there is no data!

Sometimes due to main API server loading issue you may see no data. Keep refreshing until your data is properly cached.

Any planning to add more options/newspaper?

Yes, we are working on it. Please stay with us.
