If you’re looking for a WordPress theme for your online news portal, blog, article directory or similar, you can’t go wrong with Newspaper. This best-selling theme is ideal for bloggers, online magazines, publishing or review websites. This review style WordPress theme is stylish, modern, lightweight, and best of all easy to build on.
It offers integration with Instagram, bbPress forum, BuddyPress and WooCommerce for webmasters looking to sell digital or physical products.
Newpaper theme currently offers over 50 demos which can be imported with one click. You don’t need coding skills to be able to build on this theme either. Simply click and create. Integrating videos is a breeze, and even these looks more stylish than other news-based themes. Speaking of the importer, not only are there a bunch of demos, but you’ll also have access to over 420 ready to use one click elements, making it very easy to customise the site to your preferences. There’s over 30 post templates, and bunch of video templates as well.
We particularly like the headers on this theme as well. Often with news and reviews websites you’ll need different headers for different pages or sections and this theme allows you to accomplish that easily. With these types of websites, you’ll want to ensure that you’re GDPR compliant and thankfully the theme includes support for these new laws.
You can easily build spectacular landing pages with flexibility to control the width and height on all sections, adjust the content positioning, resize columns, adjust padding and margins and much more. Making this theme unique to your business will be a breeze.
From a speed perspective, we were impressed to see that even though the theme is very flexible, it remains lightweight enough to score a very decent pagespeed score resulting in A grades from both Pingdom and GTmetrix.
With these type of sites, most of your traffic is likely to come from mobile users. Not only is this WordPress theme fully responsive, but it’s also Google AMP ready and looks stunning on mobile.
It also features 14 predefined and 5 custom spots for AdSense and banner ads, making monetisation simple.
