Newspaper WordPress Theme 90,000 Sales Milestone

Whoa! Today is the day we hit 90,000 sales on ThemeForest! We’ve dreamed of reaching this milestone since the release of the Newspaper WordPress theme back in 2013. We are enthusiastic about sharing this important achievement with you. We are celebrating this amazing moment by showing our gratitude to you. Thank you all for your support, feedback, and help to keep improving and maintaining our theme up to date. Let’s take a look back and remember how the Newspaper Theme came to be.

Newspaper Theme's hit a new milestone

Newspaper theme is the Art of Publishing

One day, two friends thought about creating a business that combines both their passions: design and software development. So, what did they come up with? A dream of having a web development company. And the first step was getting a  WordPress theme listed on ThemeForest. As impossible as it seemed at the beginning, the passion made them stronger and more determined than ever. They had many attempts to get a WordPress template listed on ThemeForest. They struck gold one day with the Newspaper Theme. It quickly became known and loved worldwide. This simple theme has been the foundation of our dreams and our futures. The very two who had first embarked on this ThemeForest journey alone grew and became the very leaders of their own company. As a source of inspiration for everyone, Newspaper WordPress theme conquered boundaries in the online environment and became the number one selling news theme in the website industry.

Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility

Peter Drucker, author

We build and develop our themes (Newspaper & Newsmag) in a small town in Romania, in Alba county, in our only headquarters. A place where magic happens. Here, at tagDiv, it’s all about our supportive community. We help one another strive and become better. We are more than just coworkers, we’re friends who build memories together. We know that in the IT industry, to perform, you have to improve yourself constantly. And what better way to do this than with understanding and encouraging colleagues, a family whom you trust with your very being? When working side by side, the team evolves.  

How is it to be Number One in Sales? 

We’ve come a long way, and we owe it all to you. Newspaper is the leading WordPress theme in the news category. It rose up pretty fast because the news industry really needed a product like this.

The many designs made with Newspaper Theme

Being the number one news theme in the world is challenging. The Canadian writer Robin Sharma says that “Small daily improvements over time lead to stunning results,” and I couldn’t agree more. Every added feature is a small step we take to make Newspaper Theme faster and more performant. Moreover, each new demo design shows you the stunning looks Newspaper Theme can have on your website. 

In other words, Newspaper WordPress theme combines: 

  1. Functionality
  2. Customizability
  3. Intuitive
  4. Flexibility
  5. Professionalism

  3. Hello friends.
    Congratulation for the theme result 🙂

    My question, do you plan more detailed video tutorials and how to videos for the tagdiv composer? Sometimes, it is not so easy for me to reach the right result.

    And do you also plan the multipurpose templates in the future?

    Thank you for your opinion.
    BR, David

  4. Hey,

    Please Bring dedicated Dark Mode function to the theme, It’s available in all the alternatives like Elementor plugin and other themes. Also, the Newspaper Theme (even Newspaper X) is still heafty. It takes too much time to load.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your message! Unfortunately, the Elementor plugin was not tested with our theme and also, we cannot say for sure if you will bring good theme results using it. We consider adding this function in our page builder but please note that we cannot say for sure when exactly this will be added.

      Best regards!

    • Hello,

      Normally, the Envato policy allows using a theme only on one install. You can, however, use the theme on a sub-domain if you plan on creating a testing site, but if we are talking about totally different sites with different content, then only one theme per install is legally allowed.

      Best regards!
