Newspaper Theme: What’s new in v.9

Newspaper 9 - What's New Version

For the second time in less than a year, we are excited to introduce you to the next generation theme that enhances the way you create your website. After the implementation of the landing page elements in Newspaper 8.5, we have turned our attention to articles. For us, Newspaper 9 is a cornerstone update. Why?

Because we are now entering into a new age for news websites. There’s no need to tenuously spend hours coding any change to your articles. You can quickly do it right on the frontend, directly from the tagDiv Composer page builder. Newspaper 9 makes you more productive and more creative. It helps you create and design your project faster and easier than ever before.

So What’s new?

420+ handcrafted elements are waiting for you in the tagDiv Cloud Library. More than an extensive collection of shortcodes, the library is the core of your new creative inspiration. Try it and say hello to the new you – the skillful web designer.

Flexibility is no longer about homepages. With Newspaper 9, all the templates like single posts, categories, author, contact us, tags are now customizable. Directly from the tagDiv Composer and right on the frontend! Take it for a test drive.

Breathtaking articles and posts

Unlimited layouts ready for your articles. Our designers handcrafted over 40 templates for single posts. Each one is highly customizable so you can create as many unique layouts as you want. With Newspaper 9 is easy to develop a framework for your content, then dynamically apply it across your website with one click.

140+ customizable sections

The moment you’ve been waiting has arrived. Add extra shortcodes like a Call-to-Action section to your articles to boost your traffic and conversions. Just edit the template, and you can add and customize a variety of elements:

  • call to action
  • hero sections
  • product presentation
  • pricing tables
  • team presentation
  • image galleries

Most of the websites out there use just one contact or about page, and usually, it’s just a dull part of the site. In tagDiv Cloud Library, you’ll discover over a dozen specific pages created by our designers especially to enhance your website. Choose the one you like and customize it to perfection!

10 brand-new category templates

With the beautiful templates in tagDiv Cloud Library, shaping each category of your website is a child’s play. Edit the layout, the featured images, fonts, colors, everything.

  1. I have been using Newspaper from the v5. It is one of my best decisions to buy this amazing package. Newspaper gives me the flexibility to design my blog. Thanks a lot tagdiv team for this amazing creation.

    • Hello, I am looking to purchase Newspaper theme. I have 6 websites in total and I wanna know that if I purchase the theme can I use the theme in as many websites I wish to or I am allowed to use only in one website ?

      • Hi,

        Thank you for your feedback! Normally, the Envato policy allows using a theme only on one install. You can, however, use the theme on a sub-domain if you plan on creating a testing site, but if we are talking about totally different sites with different content, then only one theme per install is legally allowed.

        Thank you!

  2. Dear Team,
    I m requesting you to please work on AMP version because current market we needed this part which we fill missing with newspaper theme missing.

    Waiting for Update.

  3. Newspaper is an amazing theme! I have a choose correct, now building a website is very simple, fast and convenient! Thanks tagDiv!

    • Hi Jayson,

      Thank you for reaching out to us! The theme will work properly on the WordPress Gutenberg version. We’ll have full support for it, but please note that the Gutenberg cannot use the tagDiv Composer blocks, grids or flex blocks. Thank you for your interest!

  4. Wow! I am following Newspaper updates from last year, but Newspaper 9.0 has made me sure to go for it without any hesitation. I own an affiliate site, which needs a landing page and a dynamic blog with beautiful CTAs. Looking forward for this theme for my new blog.
    Thanks TagDiv Team.
    Cheers 🙂

    • Hi Paul,

      Thank you for your interest in our product! We’ll be happy to respond to your queries, though please provide more details about what kind of registration facility you are looking for, and also for the online payment gateway. Please send the information via email at Thank you!

  5. Hello. I planned to purchase your theme, but I dont know if it is possible to integrate theme with real estate system (any of available) which have front registration functionality. Additionally, I would like to integrate more functionalities like travel reservation etc. I don’t want to lose current page structure and only your theme satisfied me for now (no possibility to test 🙁 )…
    Than you

    • Hi Nele! We are happy you are interested in our themes, thank you! Unfortunately, we haven’t tested real estate plugins with our theme, and we cannot advise you if they will work properly. We have a list of compatible plugins – If you have more pre-sale questions, please send us an email at Thank you!

  6. Hi, I own Version 8.x of the theme, installed and currently updated … I’ve downloaded new V. 9 but, while installing it I get an error regarding the already existing folder where the theme will be installed. Is there a chance to have V. 8 automatically upgraded? Do I have to follow particular steps to avoid to crash the actual theme? Many thanks. Paolo.

  7. Dear friends.
    I already bought your theme about one year ago, and finally found the free time to start my fitness project. Can you let me know for some details?
    1. When the header builder function will be alive, now the header building is limited. I think this is the last area, which can not be modified via TD composer
    2. The predefined areas, pages, posts in TD composer – is this final number or do you plan to add more full pre-prepared layouts? I would be nice to add more and more continously – you are professionals designers. Your results will be much better than mine.
    3.JSON – do you plan to add full JSON support, at this time I think it is not, I have better traffic on sites with full JSON structured murkup sites, than without this murkup. I mean in all areas (post, pages, everywhere on the site)
    Thank you for your opinion.

    Best for you, David

  8. HI, I’m in trouble so I’ve written about the problem, here
    the images in main page doesn’t appear or appear very slowly, so I’ve checked my Search Consol and I’ve found an error with my server which direct WP-content/theme/Newspaper.
    error name is ‘500’. I think this error occurs in Theme that I installed. even images didn’t index no more.
    if my thought is right, how can I solve this problem ? Do I delete this theme and then re-install ?

  9. I have been using newspaper theme 2 years now and I am quite satisfied with its performance. Is there any way I can update my old version with the this awesome new one.

  10. Why is this theme not defined as “multipurpose” ?. Td composer is in better shape than others, although it lacks many features.

    • Hi,
      Thank you for reaching out! Our page builder is specially created and integrated with our themes, for the blog, news, and magazine industry. The tagDiv Composer is not sold separately and cannot work with other themes, as it’s bundled with Newspaper and Newsmag templates. If you have more pre-sale questions, please send us an email at

You can find out more information on this here: If you have more pre-sale questions, please don’t hesitate to send us an email at, as the blog area is not assigned to the Customer Support Center. Thank you for understanding!

  15. Hi Tagdiv.

    I am considering buying this theme, but I want to know more about the “subscription options”. How can this theme help me get free and paying subscribers? Could you please link me or explain how it works and how it integrates with payment options for subscriptions?

    Best regards,

    • Hi Jonathan,

      Thank you for your interest in our theme. Newspaper doesn’t have any options in this regard, as a paid subscription is not part of the theme features. However, Newspaper comes bundled with a custom newsletter plugin that can bring you free subscribers. Please follow this link to see how it works: If you have more pre-sale questions, or you need other information, please send us an email at Thank you for understanding!

  16. Just want to say that we started our business with your Newspaper theme/template and 2 years later after using various other themes for other areas of the business, yours is the best by far. Looks the best and is so user friendly! Thanks for offering such a good product.

  21. Hi, I want to buy Newspaper. This template really awesome and has so many features that I need to learn.

    Is it allowed to install without a license on localhost for learning, because I want to use the license for my main domain?
    I create backup on my localhost with xampp.

    Thanks, tagDiv

    • Hi, Jagad!

      Thank you for reaching to us and for the feedback.
      Sure, you can install the theme on localhost without activating it. We’re recommending this to new users – test and play with your theme in a safe environment before moving on your live website. Unfortunately, this will also limit your Newspaper theme as some awesome features – like tagDiv Cloud Library, elements, sections, pages, single templates – are unlocked on activation.

      You can find tutorials on how to get the best results with Newspaper theme on our blog, the Newspaper Theme Documentation and on our YouTube channel.

      Good luck with your new project!

  22. hi, I am about to purchase the “Newspaper 9” theme – and have a question. My main goals are to achieve better styling for the individual blog posts and the different lists of posts, which I believe is a core expertise of the theme. But another critical feature for me is the use of a fixed background image, that the content of page “rolls over”. My current theme ENFOLD can do that, but only on desktop sites (not on mobile). Can you please let me know what options I have with newspaper 9 and mayve share an example or 2… for mobile? Thank you and best regards!

    • Hi,

      With the newspaper theme the post templates can be designed with our builder, the tagDiv composer. Here are some examples of post templates which can be used, these are designed by us but can be modified or you can design your own they can be previewed and even edited to see what how they are made or experiment using the composer. Posts can be displayed in pages using blocks and grids, there are many types of such elements. There are also demos that can be installed, they can be previewed here
      A background image can be set in general for the whole website, or more specifically while editing/creating pages or templates with the composer. Most elements can have a background image set. if you would like to know more, please send us an email at and we we gladly help. Let us know.

      Thank you!
