For the first time in a page builder, we’re introducing the intuitive Right-Click contextual menus in the tagDiv Composer page builder! Discover a whole new range of options and a natural way to create pages, articles and design your website.

Newspaper Theme Version 9.1 Copy Paste Tools

The New Copy and Paste tools

Replicating an element or section is now stunningly easy. For example, you can move entire sections of the layout to different templates or pages, right on the front-end of your website. Use it on elements, columns, and rows, on the same page or between them. Say goodbye to the old fashioned way of copying items through the shortcodes and embrace the brand new feature for effortless results!

Copy and Paste the Style

Cloning a design element has never been easier. Now, you can right-click the desired one, and the Newspaper Theme does it for you. As a result, everything from design to typography can be applied to a similar element with a single click. Experience this new way of designing your website without touching a single line of code. Explore this feature!

Rewind and fast forward

If you’re not satisfied with the changes, you’ve made, don’t waste time to delete the element or section and drag and drop a new one! Newspaper Theme 9.1 brings you the ability to revert an element style to the default design settings. The Reset Style option is available from the Right-Click Menu. Now you can rewind the style in a blink of an eye and fast forward by quickly adding new beautiful customizations.

Save your creative result as an Element

Improve your workflow and reduce the development time by saving the results you’re proud of. From the Right-Click Menu, you can save customized elements and rows as predefined ones. Use them later on pages and articles from the ‘Add Element’ button in the tagDiv Composer page builder. Yes! It’s that easy to be productive!

  1. Updating this theme via uploading/overwriting the files into wp folder, I will lose any customization of CSS or page feature configuration?

    • Hi Raphael,
      If you made custom modifications in the Theme Panel Options you won’t lose any of them. If you need technical assistance, please open a new topic on Thank you for understanding!

  2. As you’ve mentioned on the Envanto market, this theme is compatible with IE 8+. But I found a design breaking element. The numbered counter element with gradient text which does’t work in IE below 11. I hoped it’ll be fixed in this update but it’s still breaking the design. Please do something about it.

    • Hi Parteek,
      Thank you for reaching out to us. I’m sorry to hear this! Version 8 is an old version of IE and back then, in 2008, gradients were not available. We do offer support for IE 8, but please keep in mind that for some brand-new features it might not work. If you need technical assistance from us, please don’t hesitate to open a new ticket on Thank you for understanding!

  3. I have tagDiv installed in my wordpress website and the composer just keeps spinning and thinking. 2 days ago it just broke in my site and in system status it said I needed to add more memory and set paramiters so I uped the limit to 256M and 5000 and fixed my php.ini the way tagDiv asked successfully. after that it still didnt work so I had to start all over from scratch and worked 2 days in a row getting things kinda back to normal and now tagDiv Composer doesnt work. I cant keep doing this, Im losing money and time and literally have been going out of my mind that this can even happen with such a new update. Why create something that doesnt work! I feel slighted and need you to fix this issue cause this isnt right. Are you a fraud company? My uncle is an attorney general in Washington DC and works for the President as one of his top lawyers and I dont even like talking to him because he is such a hard ass but Im thinking about letting him know you people are selling bad products and he will have the FBI come shut you down so my suggestion is to fix this and get back to me ASAP or thats what going to happen. Too much money time and effort to be taken like this. Please help me

    • Hello, Robert!

      I’m sorry you are facing issues. Please note that the product is not faulty. The tagDiv Composer works perfectly fine in the right conditions. You may have an issue affecting its proper functionality on your install that could come from a host setting or plugin conflict. It is an issue affecting your site in particular, not for everyone that uses the theme. Our themes are properly tested before launch and such issues would not have made it past quality control as proper testing is done on each release. Please contact us via email at and refer to this conversation. Allow us to investigate the issue by providing all the details, wp-admin and cpanel access.

      Also, please note that the blog section is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. To get technical assistance you should contact us via email or Our support team is ready to assist you.
      Thank you!

      • Hi, you write in your terms that

        “2.You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product for yourself or for one client (a “single application”), and the End Product can be distributed for Free.”

        Does it mean that i can make a site for my own company (i.e. a commercial football site driven by my own company) + one for an external company (i.e. my dads company)? A yes will be vital for me to buy now.

        Best wishes

        • Hi,

          Those are the Envato license terms, valid for all themes from themeforest as far as I know. They all use the same licenses. According to them one website requires one license, so the two websites you plan to create will require two licenses.

          Thank you!

    • Hi Steve,
      Newsmag and Newspaper are two different WordPress Themes. The process is the same as when switching from a theme to another one. If you need any technical guidance regarding this, please open a new topic on, and our support team will gladly help you. Our blog is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. Thank you for understanding!

    • Hi,

  4. Hi,

    I have a question

    Like your this posting, I want to know how to make my posting with narrow text area and wide images area.
    No post templates on the newspaper theme Ver 9.2 have this shape.
    For example, 600px for text parts and 1280px for Image parts.

    Please let me know.


  5. My question is can I allow other businesses to create and post their own content via subscription models or per post submission fee. I already asked about the call to function buttons.

    So, simply a person subscribes and is allowed to use just the wordpress functions to write their article, add their call to action buttons, link to social media, while posting to the various post categories I created on my end. If this isn’t supported, I’ll hear you out as to custom programming costs while hopefully I convince people to send me their articles whole I write/blog them for the business user.

    What I’m basically trying to look at doing with your template is a hybrid as to a business profile/promotional tool meets blog.

    Right now I have a website domain name parked with Godaddy.

    Best Regards,

    Mike Maniurski

    • Hi Mike,

      The theme will not interfere with the WordPress user roles and capabilities. You can find out more about this here –
      If the user registration is enabled for your website, users can register and be assigned as authors. They will be able to write content for the website and post it (authors and above). If you have more questions or you need technical assistance, please open a new topic on or send us an email at Unfortunately, the Blog section is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. Thank you for understanding!

  6. I have a client using the Co-Authors Plus plugin, and your Newspaper theme. I had to modify the Newspaper theme code to properly support Co-Authors. Would you accept patches to add proper Co-Authors Plus support? If so, please email me and I’d be happy to send them your way. It would be great if they were in the next versions of your theme, so that I don’t have to keep maintaining patches for this client.

  7. What theme/demo is this tagDiv blog using? I really like the design/font style.. We are currently using newspaper theme and going to make some updates with this update.

    • Hi,

      The website is using the Newspaper theme. If you have specific questions about the design of particular elements please create a new topic in the theme forum or send us an email at and we will gladly help you.

      Thank you!

    • Hi Gonzalo,

      I’ve just tested the live demo and the light demo that comes in the theme, and I couldn’t find any issue. Please open a topic on our Support Forum and provide all the relevant details. Our support team is ready to assist you.

      Thank you!

  8. It is an amazing theme to use. Thanks for the insight you gave about it. I am actually going to improve many features on my wordpress.

    • Hi,

      Thank you for your interest in our theme! Yes, it is possible to create a similar website with our theme, using the TD Composer. First of all, you should read all of our documentation from here -> in order to familiarize yourself with all of the theme functionality and then, try to recreate this layout using the theme.

      Al the best!
      Good luck!

  9. We want to use this theme, but it has been said that blog style sites may be a problem in SEO work. Can we use this theme on blog sites?

    • Hi!

      Thank you for reaching out to us.
      I’m not sure I understand what problem in SEO you are referring to. Of course you can use it.
      We’ll be glad to answer any questions you may have about the theme.
      Just drop us a line on and refer to this conversation.

      Thank you! Warm regards 🙂
