I thought this was closed like my last question on this same issue. So glad to see it still open! I did select "not resolved" when I last left, your system may reopen it when that is done.
As is our practice we like to come back and report the solution since likely other users will be running in to the problem.
First let me say THIS WAS A NEWSCAST PROBLEM, excuse me for screaming but I have been working on it for months. I have asked for assistance here at least 3 times. Each time the topic has been closed so I can not continue the conversation. With staff or with other users to find a solution.
The theme file fullwidth.php was missing get_footer(); so the footer and all the things it needs to do was never being called. We use fullwidth.php on our checkout page to keep the sidebar from displaying. This keeps us from having https errors on this secure page.
Adding the get footer code to the end of the fullwidth.php file solves the problem of the form not displaying the ship to address. We of course do not see this problem in other pages with forms because the page.php file has get_footer(); in it.
The end of the file should look as it does above to work correctly for those that may have this problem.
First let me say we are a fan of Newscast, it is just what we were looking for and support has been reasonable most of the time.
However, the page load time is slow compared to other themes we use. Seconds, as long as 4-5 as compared to less than half a second on much busier websites of ours with other themes. We have read in the forum here analysis that it is a "dirty" theme.
The Cart66 people indicated the following to me when they helped to solve the problem.
"Basically this theme is not very well designed. There are hundreds maybe even thousands of undefined indexes here. The biggest issue is that the footer was not even included in the template for this site."
They were right, it was left out. I checked on Theme Forest and Kresi has sold between 1M and 2M$ there. That alone would tell me the Cart66 comment was wrong, if it were not for what we found here on this problem.
If the theme needs to be retired, and it looks like it will need to be for us that is fine. We got more than our moneys worth out of it. We are testing Choices, but don't know enough to analyze it and know it is a good theme that will not have these issues. I would not mind reassurance from Kresi and the team, "yes that is a good move, change over (upgrade) to choices."
We have already bought it, it's not about the money it's about the time.
I look forward in continuing to ask questions, to provide solutions when I can and participate in a community with a great product.
