A newspaper WordPress Theme — simple, clean, and looking like a classic newspaper.
The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme pulls the classic newspaper from the real world to the screen. We have worked hard to recreate every line, every typeface, every texture just to land a real newspaper on your screen. Most distinctly, 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.
Eight Newspaper Styles
The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme features eight different color schemes and full styles, inspired by different newspaper styles, eras and paper qualities.
Gray, which is the default, for that real life feel of gray paper one often sees in a daily newspaper.
Dark Gray, as a grungier alternative to the above. WWII style rough gray paper.
White, for you who want a bit more of a neutral, clean slate to write on.
Natural Paper, featuring the texture of thicker paper — perfect to use with the handwritten typefaces.
Cream Paper, for those of you who want your paper to lean more towards a diary style.
Oxidized, to emulate the style of those really old newspapers you may find in your grandparents shelves.
Space Style — a full blue metallic theme for news that take you straight to the moon.
Western Style — a grungier oxodized with old western style typefaces.
Four Newspaper Inspired Post Types
The four post types enables you to emulate the most recurring article types of a regular newspaper.
Standard, which is the default, for timeless serifs and the classic feel they bring.
Breaking News [Aside], to get those in-your-face big bold sans serif letters! Grab the attention!
Notice [Status], inspired by classic wedding & death notices from older style newspapers.
Image, for you to be able to drop in a piece of art or graphic, for example a classic ad picture that can't be reproduced with pure text.

I was looking for a nice looking WordPress Theme to build my own private blog, and found the perfect one with Old Newspaper!Dominik Wombacher
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.Priscilla

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.Jay
