Introducing Elements

Access groundbreaking new possibilities with the intuitive tagDiv Multipurpose plugin. It changes the rules and gives you the power to create interactions that were not available before. Stunning 22 new elements are waiting to help you design your ideas right on the front end. Combine everything and build spectacular landing pages that grow your business along with your website. Just as you’ve always planned!

Waves of color

Create an exquisite experience for your visitors using vivid colors. Drive conversions using the right call-to-action and compelling design. Combine as many colors as you like to create a gradient effect, and add it to any element. Your design can be can saved and reused for as many time as you want!

Wider rows

Astounding full-width pages are now within your grasp. You can choose a wider layout on each row and mix them to get the design you desire. Tell your story! Newspaper will make sure that your content is fluid, creating an immersive experience on any device.

Strong backgrounds

We absolutely love the new parallax scrolling effect. Highlight your memorable piece of content using image or video backgrounds with parallax. Your stories are brought in a different light, changing the way your visitors perceive the deeper meaning of your message.

New page templates

Design beautiful pages using the exciting new templates. Whether you want to set up a unique page or create a minimal layout, Newspaper 8.5 is the definition for flexibility. The "overlay menu page template" and the "empty page template" are here to complete the wide diversity of options already available in the theme.

Fancy footers

Discover delightful new features to style the bottom section of your website. Design a page with tagDiv Composer, assign it as a footer and stun your visitors. Now you can accomplish everything you have ever imagined as possible for this section. The footer area no longer has to be the “ugly duck” of your website.

Satisfaction is our main priority

Newspaper is one of the top themes currently available on the WordPress platform, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
