LinePress: WordPress Newspaper Theme Release

After the release of Showfolio, we decided it was time to go back to our passion for newspaper themes. Many of our supporters have been asking for another theme of this type for months now. Well the time has come, and we think you’ll love our newest theme – LinePress – which has just been released.

LinePress is built on the latest Gabfire framework, and has a completely different layout. With LinePress, we wanted to harness the look and feel of an online newspaper, but maintain the ease of a standard blog. There are dozens of theme options to modify the site to your liking. Most importantly, you can expect the same level of thought-work put into the LinePress back-end as any of our other newspaper themes. Grab your copy today.

Multiple Content Areas

With over 13 separate content areas on the home page you can control from the options panel, LinePress gives you more than enough real estate to showcase your best posts across various categories.


Unlike other newspaper themes, we’ve decided to abandon the featured slider in this theme for a more subtle featured section. No fancy sliders – just highly visible content. Take advantage of the featured row to highlight the latest post from 4 different categories.

Customize Your Site

With 22 widget areas, you’ll have the flexibility to customize LinePress to look and feel exactly the way you want. The theme also includes 6 color styles which you can preview in the demo, and a section for your custom CSS.

Page Templates

Our themes come packaged with several page templates such as a full width page template without the sidebar, and an archives page template. See the demo for all the available templates.


LinePress is the first Gabfire newspaper theme of 2011, and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback either here or on the support forums. So tell us what you think of LinePress or submit your site to the showcase.

    The theme is probably the best generally-available online news theme available for WordPress. I had planned to use Gabfire news themes as the "spokes" of my news network, but LinePress enables us to use Gabfire throughout the entire network. A great job.

      Thanks for nice comments Ed

    can you add the Slide show ?

    • Mehmet   February 28, 2011 at 8:45 PM

      If you meant featured slider, we specifically didn't include it since we've used horizontal boxes at the top to display latest news.

      If you meant photo slider, we have it right above video section.

    Excellent and very professional WP theme. I'll consider it for potential news/media websites projects. I just wished it has different sidebars for Pages/Categories and Posts to give new looks for the website, like the latest trend in WP themes.

    Keep up the good work!

    • Mehmet   March 1, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      As of now we have different widgets for frontpage and inner pages, but good idea about post/pages Mark. We'll probably implement that option to implement into our framework. Thanks for suggestion though.

    Ótimo trabalho, só temas perfeitos.


  8. fabio   March 2, 2011 at 2:45 AM

    Oh my God! Another awesome theme for professional web publishing.

    I'll consider it for a new project we have just in progress.

    Ottimo lavoro ragazzi!

    Great theme. Can a user migrate his posts from another Gabfire theme to Linepress without losing any information?

    • Mehmet   March 2, 2011 at 1:17 PM

      Changing theme will not cause you to lose any of your information Eze. You will have all your data on place, nothing will be lost.

  13. LEDs Lighting   March 10, 2011 at 1:16 PM

    This is a great website. Well done for these designs.

  15. HCOOK   March 12, 2011 at 2:38 PM

    Fantastic theme – would definitely go for it, unless I was just about to launch a Adv NP website monday…. 🙂

    Very nice looking theme. Planning to purchase one of your newspaper themes for some news sites I have planned.

    The question is… What is the difference between the capabilities of newspaper themes? For example, what is the deference between capabilities of WP Newspaper and LinePress? I like the sidebar of WP Newspaper, can the same be placed in LinePress?


    • Mehmet   April 5, 2011 at 12:41 AM

      There is not any different in terms of functions, all themes are same YanTheMan, the only different is their layouts.

      As for sidebar tweak, that is a question related with your CSS ability, if you are not good on that, you would need to hire a developer to do that task for you

  17. Chris   July 18, 2011 at 1:30 PM


    I want to bye the “linepress” template but from today you didn’t have the demo at the list of the templates.

    Can you help me ?

  18. Chris   July 18, 2011 at 2:26 PM

    I have enjoyed and am using Linepress. But that I noticed a problem: Where is the Login / Register? How to enter?

    Sorry my english

    • Mehmet Ozek   March 9, 2012 at 12:09 PM

      Hi Joge, which login/register link are you asking exactly?

  20. Jorge Rodrigues   March 9, 2012 at 1:51 PM

    A link to the internet to register on the site. For the only option I see is the goal, as see in the position Footer2 in the Site

    Hola. El tema funciona muy bien y es muy bonito pero quizás necesite alguna revisión sobre todo para no quedarse atrás con con las actualizaciones de wordpress . Actualmente al actualizar wp a 4.3 la home se desconfigura, la barra lateral aparece debajo del contenido.¿Habrá alguna actualización del tema linepress?

    • Mehmet   September 8, 2015 at 6:24 AM
