How to enable/disable Gutenberg editor support for News Posts?

Just add this code in your theme function.php file to enable/disable Gutenberg editor support for News Posts :

function prefix_gutenberg_editor_support($news_args){
    $news_args['show_in_rest'] = false; 
    return $news_args;  
add_filter( 'sp_news_registered_post_type_args', 'prefix_gutenberg_editor_support' );

Do I need to update my permalinks after I activate this plugin?

No, not usually. But if you are geting «/news» page OR 404 error on single news then please update your permalinks to Custom Structure.

I am getting 404 page in news detail page?

If you are getting this error, please go to Setting —> Permalinks and under Permalinks Setting select «Plain» radio button and save. Now again go to «Post name» radio button and save again. This will fix your issue.

Are there shortcodes for news items?
