NewsPro WordPress Theme Gets Best Updates Yet

Per our tweet and tease on the support forums yesterday, the NewsPro theme has been updated with some exciting new features. However, the most noticeable updates are under the hood, and can be seen in the back-end control panel. So here’s a quick round-up of the latest updates to one of the best newspaper themes in the market. (p.s. we love newspaper themes!)

Theme Control Panel

What about it? Well since our users loved the new options panel introduced into the ShowFolio theme, we decided to do the same with NewsPro. So check out the new options panel which is far more organized and contains several enhancements not available in previous versions of this theme.

Inner-Page Slider

You asked for a custom inner-page slider. Well, we delivered. See this post on the demo for a wonderful example. With the latest update, you can even assign a tag to determine which posts display that neat slider.

Gabfire Widgets

Want more flexibility from your theme? We integrated several widgets that can be used across the 26 widget areas / sidebars readily available in NewsPro theme. Put the following widgets anywhere you want on your site:

  • About Us
  • Archives
  • Latest Twitter Tweets
  • Flickr
  • Most Recent Posts
  • Most Recent Comments
  • Social Icons
  • Subscribe by Email (FeedBurner)

Check out the footer on the demo for some examples of these widgets.

Image / Thumbnail Management

To make your life easier, we’ve integrated powerful waterfall logic into the theme to handle all your image and thumbnails. You can set a featured image using WordPress’ built-in functionality, a custom field, or include it into the body of the post. And better yet, our sliders can display images based on a selected category or a tag which you can assign from the options panel. Plenty of thought and man-hours have gone into this major update, so get your copy of the best newspaper theme on the net.

Same Look, Improved Navigation Menu

You probably will not see any difference in the navigation menu, but it has been gutted and replaced with an entirely new and improved JavaScript menu that is faster and more flexible.

Category Page Headline Post

To add a creative twist to the standard category pages, a number of users requested a revamped category page that had a headline post. Browse the NewsPro demo, and check out this feature on the category pages. This is just one step towards custom category pages which we are working on for future enhancements.

Dozens of Theme Updates

To make NewsPro even more powerful and flexible for your online newspaper magazine or blog site, we have enhanced several additional features. Grab a copy of this excellent newspaper theme today and see for yourself what the buzz is about.

    It looks really fantastic! especially the custom innerpage slider and category page headline post very helpful to showoff it.

    Keep up the good work!

    I love the uncluttered and professional look of the backend options. The category page headline post looks fantastic; puts the theme on par with other top news designs. Great job — again.

    A question, if we recently bought the theme how can we get the new one? We have to buy it again?

    Thanks :)

      You don't need to re-purchase it Pat. Using old theme download link that we emailed after your purchase will give you access to the latest version of theme.

    I got the newspro theme last week.

    I was surprised how easy it was to make the different choices to the site.

    It is amazing how much the Gabfire themes have evolved over the past 2 yrs.

    You no longer need to be a computer geek to launch a professional looking site.

    Mehmet, great job.
