New Theme: Nuntius

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.

Nuntius Theme

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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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. :)
