Newspaper theme by tagDiv is one of the most popular magazine themes on WordPress. With over 110,000 sales on ThemeForest, the theme is quite robust in layouts and ideal for News websites, publishing blogs, reviews sites, and online magazines as well.
In today’s mobile-first world, the Newspaper theme is way ahead of the curve. It comes with a unique mobile theme and is AMP ready. The theme also comes with extra integrations for Instagram, bbPress Forum, BuddyPress, and extensive WooCommerce functionality. It also supports responsive Ads, making it ideal for content blogs and online shops from cryptocurrency, fashion, food, lifestyle, travel, viral news, minimalist projects and the list of topics goes on.
Like most website templates on WordPress, the Newspaper theme comes with its own live editor – the tagDiv Composer. It’s basically the tagDiv’s frontend page builder for the theme and it’s loaded with lots of elements to choose from. It’s using the drag and drop functionality and has some nice features like copy
However, unlike popular page builders like Elementor and WP Bakery, the tagDiv Composer is not very user-friendly. It could take a lot of getting used to just to understand the logic of the widgets available.
When you first install the Newspaper theme, you will be prompted to import one of the many demo layouts available. The demo import pulls content as templates, which can be edited from Cloud Templates on the WordPress dashboard menu.
You can also import specific templates from the Cloud Library into your existing website (requires theme activation). However, you can decide to import the demo without content and create your own from scratch.
Newspaper Theme Cloud Library
During demo importation, Newspaper theme imports 10 different page templates: 404 Template, Attachment Template, Author Template, Category Template, Date Template, Footer Template, Header Template, Search Template, Single Post Template, and the Tag Template.
These are templates you can find individually in the tagDiv Cloud Library, which is a huge gallery of pre-made design layouts for single posts and specific pages, sections, as well as blocks. Each one of them is customizable using the tagDiv Composer.
How to edit Header and Footer Areas on Newspaper Theme
The Header and Footer areas can be highly customized on the frontend, using the tagDiv Composer page builder. You just need to open a page with the page builder and hit the Website Manager button. This action will open a box with several settings, including Header and Footer tabs. You can choose to import header and footer pre-made layouts from the tagDiv Cloud Library and assign them globally or individually.
Furthermore, there are general, divider, layout, and CSS settings you can apply, similar to any other element. You can also have different headers and footers for your pages. It’s definitely easy to switch between them, right on the frontend.
Create a Template from Scratch
If you prefer to design your own taste, the Newspaper theme allows you to create your own template from a blank canvas. Here you can design your own page template which includes a custom footer with the help of the tagDiv Composer and Live CSS module.
Online Store Builder
In this online industry, you can basically do whatever you want on your website. For example, if you want to convert your site into an eStore, Newspaper theme has just updated its core eCommerce functionality.
Now you can import shop pre-built websites (which are demo designs, as the author notes), and the tagDiv Composer has improved his list of elements with Woo dedicated tools that can be easily dragged and dropped. The functionality is given by the tagDiv Shop plugin. These additions allow you to build beautiful and functional product pages and customize filters to provide the best information about your shop.
