A WordPress Theme Looking Like an Old Newspaper

Respon­sive Design

February 2, 2017 ·

It is no longer negotiable, except in very special cases; a web page should be responsive. That is, it should change appearance according to your screen width, in order to fit all kinds of devices from mobile phones to pads to huge screens.

We have tried taking it a step further to ensure this WordPress them is really smooth.

Animated Newspaper Grid and Responsive Videos

Old Newspaper WordPress Theme is spiced up with some nice animations when it goes from three columns to two, and then down to one on mobile, brought to you by the JavaScript grid layout library masonry. Pull your browser window when your are on the front page to see the animations.

Also we have made sure videos are responsive by integrating a script called fitVids in the theme. You do not need to install the fitVids plugin. We have forced you to have responsive video already!

The theme should really be optimized for all kind of device-sizes, so if you spot any bug in regards to this, please tell us. Thank you.
