City Desk

Did you know that you could test this theme at our theme playground before you buy?

City Desk

Designing and developing great themes is a fun process but nothing happens exactly as planned. Our initial vision of a theme inevitably evolves into something very different by the time its complete. Luckily, it always looks better than what we had in mind. This is exactly how City Desk came to fruition.

Our members shared their expectations from a magazine theme and we went to work based on valuable input. The end-result is – an all-in-one WordPress newspaper theme.

Alternative Featured Slider

With one click on the theme control panel, you can swap the large featured slider with an equally effective slider of a smaller size. You decide – no coding required!

Columnist Slider

Sign Up & Contribute Widget

Optional Sign Up and Contribute pop-up window. The Contribute widget is optional and can be turned off with a single click on the theme options panel.

Category Templates
