Old Newspaper WordPress Theme v2.4

The desire to branch out the Old Newspaper Theme into more visual expressions has been brewing in me a long time.

A new Sci-fi Newspaper look is bouncing around in my mind, an Old American Western Newspaper have been suggested by a user, and I am already preparing for it. A more book/diary like approach has also been on the table.

These are all things in the pipeline for the next major update. But for this to be possible, I wanted to seriously polish up what we already have.

Better listing of categories: You got it.

More modern and smooth infinite scroll: You got it.

A full menu overhaul, various design polishes, an entire new commenting system…

You got it!

Now that I start mentioning examples, I want to just continue, because I am proud of how solid and modern the theme feels now with it’s new features and upgraded old ones. But I put together a video, so that you can visually devour the entire feature list.

If you like it better in plain text, here is the full Feature List.

Access Every Update, Every Time

Become a patron, and support and influence the future of the Old Newspaper Theme, and also allow us to develop new ones from new ideas. The more patrons, the more time I can put into development, and the better a theme you get.

Your Feedback — My Food

Last of all, I can’t express enough how much I appreciate your feedback. All new versions are built after I sort through tons of ideas, suggestions, bugs and issues you stumble upon when using the theme, or simply looking at the demo.

Leave a comment below if you have any such feedback — or any question at all — and know that you are forming future themes.
