Newsmag Theme Review
Newsmag WordPress Theme Review
Overall Theme Rating := 8 out of 10
If Newsmag was a film – it would be the “Titanic” based solely on the resources spent on its development. The outcome (especially on the v1.0 release) is a product with a lot of “eyes” to dot and “tees” to cross. That said, it is probably the best WordPress theme by a country mile.
Some of its features will in time become the “gold standard” – mandatory for themes targeting the professional enterprise niche.
Newsmag is the first theme to provide a “Load Demo Data” button. This feature is long overdue for WordPress themes of every description. How many times has a theme looked enticing suited and booted (Canvas from WooThemes is a good exambple) but when it adorns the robes of your articles it becomes a different proposition?
This disappointment can be avoided with a load demo data so that it looks on your machine as good (or as bad) as new.
Newsmag Key Facts
Cost : £50
Term : Only one install unlike most themes which come with lifetime use on unlimited websites.
Has Demo Video : Yes (good quality)
No. of Plugins Required – About 3 plugins – and the screen is a mess until the “editor” plugin is installed.
Key Problem 1 – Some annoying blocks of html/php code appear on screen ( hopefully this is resolved soon ).
Key Problem 2 – This plugin requires that it be registered and it makes quite a lot of fuss until you do so.
