Blognews Theme Update

Even at the onset of 2010, we knew that this is going to be a different year for us altogether. We could have build up one theme every month; but as we told before, we decided to revamp the structure of our old themes so as to make them more robust and user friendly.

With that said, while working on the update of Advanced Newspaper theme, we have made a decision to build our own framework and worked very hard to build a framework architecture that stands out.

Currently, we have updated Advanced Newspaper theme and Transcript theme, and here with this post, we also would like to let everyone know that we have blognews theme as well, built on our new and exciting framework architecture.

Online Publishing is Lots of Fun with Transcript

We always worked hard towards releasing new themes that are a perfect blend of technology, SEO, user friendliness, and utility; our new Transcript theme is not any different.

The great success of our Newspaper Theme series had encouraged us to come up with another news/magazine based theme that is clean, simple yet powerful, and fresh enough to let your content speak. Since we always wanted to know what readers would like to see in a new theme, we have taken into account their feedbacks based on a preview of the pre-release theme, and in fact had got some excellent ideas to implement into Transcript.

A large share of user feedback was in favor of including an eye catchy slider and an advertisement management module inbuilt in the Transcript. Hence, in Transcript theme, we have included an innovative advertisement module that lets users enable/disable seven different ad spots, plus a slider, which can easily set to be static/auto rotating via theme control panel. Another innovative addition to the new theme is the Media bar, which is intelligent enough to recognize whether the post is a Photo or Video news, and groups either Video or Photo to display on Media Bar of the theme at a time.
