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.
Dec 21st at 3:33 am
Wow! Beautiful! Thank you, WordPress! I’ll certainly try out this one…for a start in the new year!
Dec 21st at 4:13 am
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.
Dec 21st at 4:50 am
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!
Dec 21st at 5:21 am
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. JUSTIN TADLOCK! Finally! I’ve been suggesting you add any of his themes. This made my day!

Of all the WordPress styles seen recently, this one is the most attractive (to me anyway). Well done, Michelle!

Nice and professional theme with header feature.
Dec 21st at 8:20 am
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!
Dec 21st at 8:32 am
Dec 21st at 8:45 am
Very nice Blog Theme!
Dec 21st at 8:47 am
AWESOME!!!!!!! I’ve been looking for a free theme like this! Thank you so so so SO much WordPress!!
Dec 21st at 9:35 am
So many great choices. Keep up the great work WordPress! I am so happy with how many ways I can change my blog theme.
Dec 21st at 9:55 am
It looks great. I’ll test this theme later.
Dec 21st at 10:14 am
That looks like a great theme! It’s so crisp and clean.
Dec 21st at 10:26 am
A seriously good and mature looking theme after a while. Thanks.
Dec 21st at 11:19 am
Wow, new theme. Something that doesn’t happen every day.
Dec 21st at 11:38 am
it’s simple but very attractive.
Dec 21st at 12:06 pm
Is this theme available for FREE on wordpress.com?
Dec 21st at 12:31 pm
I love it !!!
Dec 21st at 1:50 pm
This is a nice theme!
Dec 21st at 2:45 pm
The most awesome theme that I ever see in WordPress.com and I changed to it straight away! Thanks WP.com!
Dec 21st at 3:11 pm
What a wonderful theme! Nicely done!
Dec 21st at 3:28 pm
Cool! First look, I didn’t have a second thought. I like it.
Dec 21st at 3:37 pm
Dec 21st at 3:43 pm
Looks great! Thanks!
Dec 21st at 3:44 pm
Very nice theme. Clean & Classy. It might win me over.
Dec 21st at 3:59 pm
New theme? Great!
Dec 21st at 4:13 pm
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!
Dec 21st at 4:41 pm
Dec 21st at 4:58 pm
Nuntius is Latin for ‘message’, isn’t it? Nice one!
Dec 21st at 5:40 pm
It’s very good theme.
Dec 21st at 5:59 pm
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.
Dec 21st at 6:07 pm
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!
Dec 21st at 6:17 pm
Awesome! I might switch to this one sometime!
Dec 21st at 7:01 pm
The newspaper headline format fits me like a glove. After all, I am a retired journalist. Thanks!
Dec 21st at 7:24 pm
Wow what an Xmas gift..Thanks for this! Amazing!
Dec 21st at 7:32 pm
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!
Dec 21st at 7:45 pm
I really like this theme, keep up the good work In a few days the twenty twelve would be available I think, I wonder how it will be?
Dec 21st at 9:46 pm
Very nice! Thank you for sharing it
Dec 22nd at 12:27 am
Dec 22nd at 1:45 am
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?
Dec 22nd at 7:09 am
The color combination reminds me of TLC discovery channel!
Dec 22nd at 7:11 am
Nice Theme! I like it.

It’s a very nice theme.
Dec 22nd at 12:12 pm
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!
Dec 22nd at 12:14 pm
Looks amazing! I’m gonna try it. Thanks!
Dec 22nd at 1:05 pm
I like the way it looks and is laid out.

Love your Nuntius theme. Very appealing. Clean and organized. Great!
Dec 22nd at 7:07 pm
It’s fresh but functional:)
Dec 22nd at 8:16 pm
Looks Great! I’m Going to try it.
Dec 23rd at 12:42 am
perfect for my new co hosted blog!!!
Dec 23rd at 12:53 am
Wow. Nice theme. And free! Unbelievable.
Dec 23rd at 3:46 am
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!
Dec 23rd at 3:43 pm
This has finally gotten me off Mystique. It’s fantastic. Can’t wait for the wave of 2012 additions.
Dec 23rd at 5:59 pm
I love horizontal-vertical combination design elements!
Dec 23rd at 6:17 pm
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.
Dec 23rd at 7:34 pm
A beautifully structured theme. Thank you, Theme Team!
Dec 23rd at 8:28 pm
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!
Dec 24th at 3:15 am
Hey, that’s real theme.
Dec 24th at 3:28 am
I just love this new theme.
Dec 24th at 2:42 pm
Nice. Looks smooth, streamlined, and attractive.
Dec 24th at 7:12 pm
Woohoo I love the new theme. I’m going to enjoy this.
Dec 24th at 10:21 pm
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.
Dec 24th at 11:25 pm
I loved how varied and frequently released the themes always are… keep it up! Can’t wait to see what the New Year brings
Dec 25th at 12:22 am
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.
Dec 25th at 12:27 am
I loved it from first sight… the best about it is that it is free and loaded with features!!! Thanx a bunch
Dec 25th at 6:17 am
I love a chic theme and it’s free. Freedom! Haha
Dec 25th at 4:44 pm
Dec 26th at 7:46 am
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!
Dec 26th at 9:43 am
Wow! So marvellous!
Dec 26th at 8:14 pm
it is beautiful.
Dec 27th at 6:41 am
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!!)
Dec 27th at 2:56 pm
This is a wonderful theme. Being tested on this blog. Thank you.
Dec 27th at 6:32 pm
I <3 it i should use that sometime.

Dec 28th at 10:07 am
Very nice theme.
Dec 28th at 11:41 am
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!
