If you’ve been itching to turn your blog into an online newspaper or magazine, Nuntius could be your perfect companion. Based on the highly-popular News theme designed by Justin Tadlock, Nuntius contains many smart features that help your readers to stay on top of all your latest scoop.
Upon activation, Nuntius displays your posts in a traditional blog format on the front page. If you’re happy with this, you can use it as is. If you’d like to showcase your content newspaper-style, then you can use the special News Page template. The News Page template includes a slider for your sticky posts, a featured widget area, and featured categories that display posts in nifty blocks.
That’s not all — Nuntius lets you customize the link color and the background color of the header and main menu from the Theme Options page, in addition to the Custom Background and Custom Header features.
I’ll stop raving long enough so that you can head on over to the Theme Showcase to get all of the details on Nuntius and its features. We look forward to seeing what you do with this one.

Oh this is exciting. I love testing testing new themes and I like looks of this one. :)
Wow! Beautiful! Thank you, WordPress! I’ll certainly try out this one…for a start in the new year!
I may just change the template of my site to this format. I like how you have the option of either horizontal or vertical format. Horizontal I feel is visually nicer as opposed to scrolling down a myriad of posts/pages.
Wow! Amazing, it’s a very beautiful theme.
The theme is very nice. However, where do I find the News Page Template…I would love to try it on the theme as well!
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. JUSTIN TADLOCK! Finally! I’ve been suggesting you add any of his themes. This made my day!
Reblogged this on reganglangit.
Nice, it has so many cool things, especially love that you can customize the link colour! Awesome ;)
Of all the WordPress styles seen recently, this one is the most attractive (to me anyway). Well done, Michelle!

I love this butterfly. Awesome theme.
Love this theme! :D
This is beautiful! Thanks guys, and wishing you a Merry Christmas!
Nice and professional theme with header feature.
I’m really, really surprised this is a free theme. It has all the features of the premium themes that I’ve been wanting except the time machine to make sure I have enough hours in the day to blog!
Very nice Blog Theme!
AWESOME!!!!!!! I’ve been looking for a free theme like this! Thank you so so so SO much WordPress!! :D
So many great choices. Keep up the great work WordPress! I am so happy with how many ways I can change my blog theme.
It looks great. I’ll test this theme later.
That looks like a great theme! It’s so crisp and clean.
A seriously good and mature looking theme after a while. Thanks.
Wow, new theme. Something that doesn’t happen every day.
it’s simple but very attractive.
Is this theme available for FREE on wordpress.com?
I love it !!!
This is a nice theme! :-D
The most awesome theme that I ever see in WordPress.com and I changed to it straight away! Thanks WP.com!
What a wonderful theme! Nicely done!
Cool! First look, I didn’t have a second thought. I like it.
Looks great! Thanks!
Very nice theme. Clean & Classy. It might win me over. :)
New theme? Great!
I’m currently using iTheme2, but I think this new theme has many of the features I think are important, like a sans-serif font and block quotes that are clearly distinctive from the main text!
Nuntius is Latin for ‘message’, isn’t it? Nice one! :)
It’s very good theme.
Personally, I think the first one is best for my site – but they all have the ability to liven up a site depending on the genera.
Wow, I like it. Although I have recently changed themes for all my blogs, so I guess I’ll wait a little bit before trying out something new. Thanks anyway!
Awesome! I might switch to this one sometime! :D
The newspaper headline format fits me like a glove. After all, I am a retired journalist. Thanks!
Wow what an Xmas gift..Thanks for this! Amazing!
Ohhhh! This looks fantastic – I’ve been longing for more free magazine-style themes, with featured posts, featured images, custom menus and customisable colours and layouts. This is great! Looking forward to more themes like this!
I really like this theme, keep up the good work :D In a few days the twenty twelve would be available I think, I wonder how it will be?
Very nice! Thank you for sharing it :)
This is the best theme ever…up to now. Others even better shall come up, I’m sure!

This is really nice! But I wanna ask, as a fashion blogger, will this theme suit my blog?
The color combination reminds me of TLC discovery channel!
Nice Theme! I like it.
It’s a very nice theme.
I’ve been waiting for a theme like this to appear!
Not only does it look great, it has amazing features!
At first, I thought the only downside to this is it’s probably a premium theme, but when I realised it’s free, I thought wow!
The part that I love is the slider for our sticky posts.
Are there any more themes which have a slider style feature anywhere?
I really think there should be more, it’s very sophisticated!
Looks amazing! I’m gonna try it. Thanks!
I like the way it looks and is laid out.

Love your Nuntius theme. Very appealing. Clean and organized. Great!
It’s fresh but functional:)
Looks Great! I’m Going to try it.
perfect for my new co hosted blog!!!
Wow. Nice theme. And free! Unbelievable.
This is an unusually versatile theme. The slider is one of the best designed and smoothest I’ve seen. Frankly, I like this theme used as a traditional blog, though I’d dress it up by using my own custom fonts. I wonder if sticky posts will activate the slider if you’re just using it as a traditional blog, and not using the special template.
For professional display of a variety of content, The News Page template is awesome!
This has finally gotten me off Mystique. It’s fantastic. Can’t wait for the wave of 2012 additions.
I love horizontal-vertical combination design elements!
I’ve had a number of different WordPress blogs over the years, and I have to say that I love how you guys have so many more themes than a few years ago. This was my number one pet peeve before, but now there are so many choices! It’s great. WordPress is truly the best blogging platform out there. Thank you so much.
A beautifully structured theme. Thank you, Theme Team!
I hate you very much. Now I’m compelled to change my current theme, and it requires me to remove customized CSS mods on a lot of pages. Nut thanks a lot. This one is really perfect!
Hey, that’s real theme. :)
I just love this new theme.
Nice. Looks smooth, streamlined, and attractive.
Woohoo I love the new theme. I’m going to enjoy this.
This is the most versatile and flexible theme I have seen and tried. And I believe me I tried a lot. This isn’t cluttered as I would expect from a newspaper-style theme, so I switched immediately to this. Though I would have to adjust my widgets and some posts, it’s okay. I think I’ll be using this for a long period. :)
I loved how varied and frequently released the themes always are… keep it up! Can’t wait to see what the New Year brings :)
Wonderful theme Michelle, I really like the layout and simplicity of use and administration, it carries character and I truly can get involved in it and offer a rich viewing experience with it’s color palette and views.
I loved it from first sight… the best about it is that it is free and loaded with features!!! Thanx a bunch
I love a chic theme and it’s free. Freedom! Haha :D
This theme unleashes the power of free pleasure! You don’t have to pay just to get a nice theme for your blog!
Thanks for making the theme!
Wow! So marvellous!
it is beautiful.
Beautiful! So nice I figured it’d be premium but it’s not! I’ve been itching for a theme with a “slider” feature–maybe this is the one to change to! (I’ve been with Vigilance since Fall 2008 or 09!!)
This is a wonderful theme. Being tested on this blog. Thank you.
I <3 it i should use that sometime.
Reblogged this on Lttle Sweety.
Always great to see new themes in magazine styles. Thank you, WordPress.
I love it^^
Plan to change my blog theme with this one in the New Year.
Very nice theme.
AHHHHHH! WordPress Themes are awesome, awesome, awesome.
I had iTheme2 for awhile. It works great for sticky posts.
I saw the demo for Nuntius. I followed the instructions, and had fun with it, and I love it!
Thank You WordPress. Your site modifications are very impressive.
Keep it up!
