The News Theme 2

The News Theme is the latest Organic Theme from our original lineup to receive a heavy new dose of AWESOME! Check out the theme demo to see it in action. Basically, we rebuilt the theme from the ground up, cleaning up the code, design and adding a ton of new features. Some of these features include Ajax loaded content on the home page — snazzy! Color change options galore, making changing the red color scheme a breeze! More featured videos and the addition of social media buttons. The addition of a top horizontal navigation menu instead of the previous sidebar navigation. New page templates, featured image banners for pages, a ton of options and much more. If you’ve got loads of content, the News Theme will display it beautifully. And if you only have a little content, that’s okay too — you can easily hide content areas within the theme options. New theme features include:

Options Framework

The theme now integrates with the Options Framework plugin, which offers a sleek options interface.

Ajax Loaded Content

Additional posts can be loaded on to the home page with the click of a button without having to navigate to the next page.

Social Media Buttons

Facebook Like, Tweet and Google Plus buttons have been added to the home page as well as individual posts and pages.

Featured Content Tabber

The updated featured content tabber can display posts with a featured image or a featured video.

Featured Videos

The theme is now capable of displaying featured videos within the tabber, homepage posts, blog and individual posts.

Featured Image Banners

Featured images can now be added to pages and page templates to be displayed as a banner image for that particular page.

Numbered Pagination

The blog and category pagination is now much more accommodating — allowing you to skip ahead to specific page numbers.

Color Options

We have included options for changing the link and highlight colors within the Options Framework — providing a greater array of customization options.
