Newspaper Theme for WordPress is Packed with Features

• 4 minutes READ

If you like to write for the web, we have the perfect theme for your next WordPress website build.

Newspaper, which is the top selling news theme of all time on the Envato Market, is a robust and easy-to-use option that will make your website look great. And it’s designed for a focus on blogging and content so that every story or post is easy to find and read.

Today, we’re going to take a deep dive into the theme so you can see what it is all about.

What is Newspaper?

Newspaper is a WordPress theme from tagDiv, a well-known theme builder on Envato Market. The Power Elite author maintains a top rating and more than 91,000 users have purchased themes from them.

Newspaper – now in version 9.6 – is a responsive theme that’s optimized for the Gutenberg release of WordPress.

The theme is perfect for blogs, but also for newspaper and magazine websites with large amounts of content. You can create and publish anything from text to images to gifs to video content with this theme.

One of the reasons this is such a popular theme is that it is easy to use. Even more, novice WordPress site owners can benefit from these features because it is designed to make your life easier.

That starts with a frontend website creation tool. This means you can see changes as you make them. It’s powered by the tagDiv Composer, which is a tailor-made page builder for frontend design.

Then there’s the added tagDiv Cloud Library. While it might not be something you already know about, you’ll come to love it fast. The gallery is packed with more than 600 pre-made designs for headers, sections, pages, posts, footers and more.

All you have to do to access these designs is install a plugin called tagDiv Cloud Library. This will give you access to the tagDiv servers from where you can import what you like to your website. Make the customizations and assign it to the pages where you want to use it. This feature can be a huge timesaver and helps you jumpstart projects with design inspiration. It can seriously help you build a website in a few hours, rather than days or months.

Newspaper comes with plenty of other design features as well. (You can see why this theme is great for novice or beginner WordPress site owners and why more advanced users also love it.)

The header builder allows you to import and create custom logos, menus and a header architecture right on the front end. (Not many other WordPress themes even come close to a tool like this!)

The theme package also includes plenty of industry-specific demo designs to jumpstart projects. These demos include full website designs. Just import a design based on the subject you need – from cryptocurrency to music to travel to sports to technology to animals and more – and start customizing it. (This is another huge time-saver and tons of customization options allow you to turn the demo site into something that looks 100 percent custom.)
