The Newspaper theme has been around since 2013 and therefore belongs to the established order. Over time, all the bugs disappear from themes and a very good product remains. This theme specializes in building news sites, blogs and is ultimately a bit multipurpose. A lot can be done with this theme.
Newspaper Theme Rating
The average rating of 4.82 out of 5 is particularly high. Since Newspaper is a niche theme, this indicates that the theme is almost perfect for building blogs and news websites. Newspaper is also very suitable for web shops.
Newspaper's Demo Websites
I count a total of 160 starter sites, also called demo websites. The quality of the demos is so good and spread over all kinds of different niches that this number is more than enough. There are themes that offer much more, but the quality is very important.
Demos for Webshops
Newspaper offers a total of 8 demo websites for webshops that can be installed with 1 click. These are not the first best designs but very neat looking layouts.
Newspaper Theme Review: Shop Builder
Newspaper now also has its own Shop Builder, just like Divi has had its WooBuilder for years. All copied from Divi, but it works well. This shopbuilder is equipped with 27 special elements for shops. With this you can set up your cart and other shop pages exactly as you had in mind.
Here we come to a feature that can certainly be improved, but I wonder if they will do it because they are a bit proud of their own page builder. Of course, it cannot be compared with a DiviBuilder or Elementor. This is practically the only thing I don’t like about Newspaper, the page builder is a weakness. I must honestly say that it is not a bad page builder but it can just be better.
You can see here link what exactly the optimizer does for you, which is impressive. This used to be impossible to achieve in a WordPress website without being an expert in this field. Now several themes have this type of optimizers and they make very fast loading websites with them. The fastest theme always remains Astra, regardless of what other themes say about themselves.
Header- and Footerbuilder
For a good theme it is nowadays a requirement to have a header builder and a footer builder, since all top themes have this. Newspaper certainly belongs to the top and of course has this too. I will not go into this further.
Not all themes have this much anymore. Newspaper lets you use an unlimited number of popups on your pages. Purchasing pop-up plugins is no longer necessary. It is true that a service like PopTin is much more flexible and better, I prefer these kinds of services as popups bring in money they are very important.
Newspaper Theme Review: Conclusion
Let’s wrap up this Newspaper Review. The theme has much more to offer, but I will not list the complete package here. If your interest has been piqued, you can read more on their own site. My opinion about this theme is very positive, it can and has everything one needs to build a good site. I would like to see that the demos can also be edited with Elementor in the future, that would improve the theme considerably. Highly recommended.
