Newswire is a theme designed with local news sites and newsy blogs in mind.
Taking a lead from news sites like the Huffington Post the author incorporated a big ‘ol slider on the home page. By default this slides the latest posts, but you can also use the core WP ‘sticky posts’ feature to flag those particular posts you want to feature in the slider with bold headlines and large format images.
The theme also features two customizable navigation menus, and the author added the ability to choose between a range of fonts, change the color scheme, upload your own logo, and even add banners in the header and sidebar without touching the template code or adding any plugins.
