Newspaper is the best WordPress theme for the publishing industry and the best-selling blog, news, and magazine template of all time. Developed by tagDiv, a Power Elite Envato author, Newspaper comes packed with premium features, amazing designs, a one-of-a-kind live editing tool, and what I love the most is that you don’t have to code a single line.
With an elegant and responsive interface, this theme lets you build your ever dreamed website to behave the same on any screen device. For anyone who wants to give their site a quick start, there are predefined ready-made demos, which come bundled with Newspaper and can be easily imported with a single click. There are over 48 demo designs to choose from, like the “Lifestyle Magazine,” “Gadgets,” “Travel Blog,” “Church Mag,” “Baby Blog,” “Health Journal,” “Dental Studio,” “Heaven Spa,” and more.
I’ve mentioned above that the Newspaper theme includes a powerful frontend editor. The handcrafted tagDiv Composer is the first-page builder created for the news industry, and it’s based on a row and column system. It has dedicated elements, and you have over 100 items to drag and drop on the frontend of your website watching every change instantly. Even more, there are multipurpose shortcodes that bring a plus of visual appeal to your pages. With this template, you don’t need coding skills or to spend an impressive amount of money to hire a developer to create a blog, news or magazine website. It’s so simple, yet so interesting to get creative and build your site in no time.

With Newspaper, everything comes in handy and is right where you need it. An intuitive Theme Panel with all the settings that you can apply globally or individually, predefined header & footer styles, post layouts, ad system, translation panel, the mobile theme, social networks, and more.
One of the most used ways to present stories is to showcase great amounts of pictures. The Newspaper theme lets you publish images through the beautiful tagDiv Slider Gallery, which displays every pic within a lightbox.

Newspaper is probably built with the idea of “Do It Yourself,” in mind and I’ve enjoyed playing with the theme, as it gave me the power to change everything without using a single line of code, and focus on my creativity. Newspaper in five words: Dynamic, Stylish, Performant, Versatile, Fast. There’s no doubt that this is the best blog, news, and magazine WordPress theme you can find in the industry.
