Old Newspaper WordPress Theme, Paper Background

A newspaper WordPress Theme—simple, clean, and looking like a classic newspaper.

The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme

The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme pulls the classic newspaper from the real world to the screen. Typography takes center stage in this theme. Once you have picked an article, you leave all distractions behind as you’re drawn into what you are currenly reading.

Like in a classic newspaper, the front page features that classic grid of articles, and the banner headline. Get ready to sink into your chair and almost feel the paper between your fingers.

Three Newspaper Styles

The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme features three different color schemes, inspired by different newspaper styles.

Gray, which is the default, for that real life feel of gray paper one often sees in a daily newspaper.

Oxidized, to emulate the style of those really old newspapers you may find in your grandparents shelves.

White, for you who want a bit more of a neutral, clean, and maybe a tad more digital feel.

Old Newspaper WordPress Theme in Three Newspaper Styles

Three Newspaper Inspired Post Types

The three post types enables you to emulate the most recurring article types of a regular newspaper.

Standard, which is the default, for curvy serifs and that classic feel.

Breaking News, to get those in-your-face big bold sans serif letters! Grab the attention!

Notice, inspired by classic wedding & death notices from older style newspapers.

What do people say about Old Newspaper?

Old Newspaper WordPress Theme

Sometimes it's nice to have the look and feel of something classic ... something that reminds you of another time and place. That essence is what Skylimit Productions has captured with their Old Newspaper theme. The theme's presence and usability has earned it my 5 star rating.

Amazing Wordpress Theme with charm!

I was looking for a nice looking Wordpress Theme to build my own private Blog and found the perfect one with Old newspaper!

Great theme

It’s amazing. It’s clean and tidy and just works.

One of the better themes I’ve had the pleasure of developing with.

The BEST old newspaper style theme for Wordpress!

I had been looking for a decent Wordpress old newspaper theme for quite a while and so was very happy to find Skylimit's interpretation of the notion. Their 'Old Newspaper' theme is, in my humble opinion the best out there without a doubt. The ease of use and styling refinements make it a real pleasure to use. I've found it handles images and formatting beautifully and I really do like the new additions i.e.yellowed paper and the ability to use your own logo. The theme works wonderfully well when viewed via both desktop and mobile phone. Excellent!
The project I am utilising this theme for is still a 'work in progress' but I do have a tentative launch schedule for the spring of 2018. Jay - London
