New Advanced & WordPress Newspaper

We had an idea to surprise our community within first quarter of 2015 and we ended up doing something that have even surprised us.


Advanced and WP Newspaper themes are our two best sellers. The total amount of sales of both themes is about 35% of our total sales. But now, we coded them both into one single theme and added an -one click option- to switch between them both via theme control panel. To do that we had to rewerite whole theme from scratch and we ended up with a brand new Advanced Newspaper with tones of additional features.

We continue to keep our promises to take Advanced Newspaper to the next level to make sure that its one of the top magazine themes in the market. So here’s just some of the excellent features packed into the all new Advanced Newspaper theme:

Multiple Homepage Layouts

homepagesSince we combined both Advanced Newspaper and WpNewspaper together into one theme, you can now switch between them both by one click from theme control panel.


woocommerceAre you planning to add an online store to your WordPress website while running an awesome magazine theme? No worries any further. We took a major step forward and included support and custom styling for the most popular e-commmerce plugin, WooCommmerce.

100% Responsive

This theme has been designed to perfectly fit your desktop, tablet or mobile devices. We took the time to make sure each and every pages of theme re-sizes beautifully, no matter what device is used.

Category Layouts

Blog layouts are boring! We work with some large and interesting clients in the online news world and they all have unique layouts for categories, and now you can too. We introduced the concept of custom inner page layouts back in 2012 and carried that feature into every theme thereafter. Take the advantage of these unique magazine style layouts to give each category page some new life.

Built on Twitter Bootstrap

Twitter Bootstrap is one of the most popular frameworks for designing responsive websites built by the nice folks over at Twitter. It’s now widely used, and we’ve adopted it for our own purposes. Due to its solid code library, ease of use, and wide acceptance, our themes will be built on this framework going forward.


Shortcodes – need some additional styling to spice up that article, use shortcodes!

HTML5 Videos

Publish your own MP4/OGV or WebM formt videos with the support of captions.

Unlimited Colors

Use the built-in color pickers in the Theme Control Panel to choose the colors that represents your brand to create a custom look.

Flexible Page and Post Templates

You wont find this option available for many themes, but we have now turned it into a standard feature for all Gabfire Themes. Advanced Newspaper comes with 6 nicely designed post and page templates.

Font Awesome Icons

Stop searching for the right icons. This theme comes ready with 430+ infinitely scalable font icons brought to you by Font Awesome.

Better Search Engine Optimization

This theme was built using semantic valid HTML code, proper heading tags and the right schemas.

Custom Post Formats

formatAdd standard, video, audio or gallery posts using custom post formats. Depending on what format you choose, a corresponding icon will be shown before post title to your visitors

Translation Ready

This theme was built to work with multiple languages and is compatible with WPML’s translation plugin

You can retrieve the new version of the theme from your user dashboard. Go get it and send us your feedback on the forums.

    Any chances to offer a promo code in this period for others themes?
    I always miss every online codes buying just few days in advance…….. sad story 😉 😉

  2. David   August 8, 2015 at 8:28 AM

    can this theme be customized as i news aggregator website that allows one to pull up news articles from popular website and be able to rewrite them before posting them on the website? i love the feel of the theme and if this can be done. i am in hook sink and anchor

    • Mehmet   August 10, 2015 at 4:39 AM

      The theme does not come with the ability to pull the news but there are plugins that you can purchase to do it.

  3. Mayapur Voice   August 23, 2015 at 4:40 AM

    Good theme but I wonder why it’s got only four types of post formats, i.e. Standard, Video, Audio, Gallery. On the theme that we are using there are many more post formats like Aside, Link, Quote, Status and Chat. Does this make your theme less efficient or easy to use? Or is it just the names the theme developers use and your theme can also create such post formats? Pl clarify. Thanks.

    • Mehmet   August 23, 2015 at 6:46 AM

      Hi Mayapur,

      An aside, link, quote or chat style post formats does not really suit to a newspaper theme nor meant to be part of a large magazine. But such formats are very easy to be added by editing a single line of code in theme.

      The post formats are optional and they do not change the efficiency of any theme.

      On top of post formats, we have 7 different post templates which is not an easy thing to find on any other theme. (On live demo -> navigation -> post templates)

  4. Mayapur Voice   August 24, 2015 at 2:39 AM

    Well, ours is a news cum blog site so some of those formats do come to use once in a while but I guess as you mentioned they can be added. Or do you have another theme that you recommend for ? Our main need is making different categories appear on the home page in a contemporary style (not only as menu items) so that the readers can see more content on the same page and choose what they want to instead of browsing through next pages. In future we also plan to add some books and video libraries.

    • Mehmet   August 24, 2015 at 4:12 AM

      All our themes gives possibility to select different categories on front page. You have a magazine site with not that many categories, so I’d suggest you Sharp or Advanced Newspaper themes.

  5. Mayapur Voice   August 27, 2015 at 8:25 AM

    Thanks Mehmet. I have again gone through the demo but cannot find Options panel or something where I can sort of check out menus for customization. I need to know how much freedom I will have to customize the look and feel of different pages if I buy Newspaper theme. How do I go about it?

    • Mehmet   August 27, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      Hi, You can try theme at

  6. carloscirilloctbr   September 3, 2015 at 12:46 PM

    Is it possible to upload any size of banners for Advertisement?

    • Mehmet   September 3, 2015 at 12:51 PM

      The width of banners are limited to standard banner dimensions Carlos. But the height is liquid and it basically can be anything.

      • carloscirilloctbr   September 3, 2015 at 2:23 PM

        Thanks Mehmet.

      • carloscirilloctbr   September 3, 2015 at 2:28 PM

        Congratulatons for the theme. We would use it as a newspaper for trade news, but we also would like to have a classified for business services providers on this area. Would you recommend any classified that would work with the theme?

        • Mehmet   September 3, 2015 at 5:08 PM

          Thank you Carlos.
          As for classifieds plugin, I’d suggest that one. They have a free version and some paid modules.

  7. carloscirilloctbr   September 3, 2015 at 2:05 PM

    Hi Mehmet

    Does the theme have the breaking news ticker feature?

    • Mehmet   September 3, 2015 at 2:16 PM

      No, it doesn’t Carlos. There are some plugins that works as a ticker thou.

      • carloscirilloctbr   September 3, 2015 at 2:19 PM

        Thanks Mehmet.

      • carloscirilloctbr   September 9, 2015 at 3:55 PM

        Hi Mehmet.
        I looking forward to use the Sabai Directory. Do know if it would work fine with the theme?

        • Mehmet   September 10, 2015 at 3:43 AM

          Hi Carlos,
          Its a premium plugin. I see no reason why it wouldn’t work with Advanced Newspaper

  8. Mayapur Voice   September 4, 2015 at 4:30 AM

    Checked the playground. Thanks. One question, when I try to import my already published posts for test, the only option I see is import Blogger posts. What about wordpress posts?

    • Mehmet   September 4, 2015 at 4:54 AM

      It was due to configuration of playground. Please check again, you’ll see WordPress import option this time.

  9. Mayapur Voice   September 5, 2015 at 2:19 AM

    Thanks for quick action. One thing I realize is I don’t find typography settings. Is it there somewhere? Also does the theme have built-in Lightbox option? I don’t see that too. Any plan to add if these things are not there?

    • Mehmet   September 5, 2015 at 6:47 PM

      All the styling options are stored on theme control panel -> under custom styling tabs.
      Nope, Lightbox is a plugin territory, we prefer not to include such JS heavy scripts into our themes, and we have no plan to add it into any future releases.

  10. Mayapur Voice   September 6, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    Appreciate you are committed to upholding WordPress standard and not including plugins like Lightbox.

    1) Where to change the font / size / color fill of the Category headings shown on the Demo home page just above the Post titles? (the present one, which is bold red, is not easily visible due to the bigger font size of the Post titles).

    2) Any way to disable auto slider for the Tabbed content on the homepage?

    3) And perhaps one last question before I conclude- Is there any setting to customize the Footer style or at least footer background color?

    Thanks Mehmet.

    • Mehmet   September 7, 2015 at 9:15 AM

      Hi Mayapur,
      1- On theme control panel -> Custom Styling -> there is a checkbox below custom css box. Once you check it, additional style customization options will show u.
      2- On theme control panel -> sliders -> set the timer for auto slide to 0
      3- Footer background can easily be modified. We will provide help for that customization on support forums.

  11. Mayapur Voice   September 8, 2015 at 12:26 AM

    Thanks Mehmet.

    1) Yes there are options but nothing for changing Category (Link) font. Only provides color options. The line where we can type the font family name doesn’t change Category font.

    2) Not sure if you got my question. Doing that will turn off both sliders. Mind you, I am talking about the tabbed content section (not the featured image) where selected Categories tab switches on its own. In other words there may need to be two options, one for the featured image slider and the other for the Tabbed content section (near Subnews). Hope It’s more clear now.

    BTW, a “Go to Top” button would have helped.

  12. Mehmet   September 8, 2015 at 5:39 AM

    1- If its only the font for categories, we could cover that as an after sale support on our forums.

    2- Sorry for misleading. The support to auto rotate tab section is tied to featured slider If you have a value to auto rotate featured slider, the tabbed section as well does auto roate. They can be separated thou, which we can provide support on our support forums,

    Click on Theme name on bottom left side of the site to test the Go To Top function

    May I please ask if you could submit your any future questions via email to ?

    Thanks for the clarification and the email address.

  18. mrcoupe   February 13, 2016 at 6:56 AM

    How do you set homepage as blog, cannot find a setting for that? I just downloaded the last version.

    • Mehmet   February 13, 2016 at 5:48 PM

      Hi MrCoupe,
      We cant locate a theme sales to your name. Can you please leave another comment with the username you have on our database?

  19. mrcoupe   February 13, 2016 at 8:43 PM

    Yes, my username is sabai ? I was logged on with my wordpress. com user, so I just commented with that ?

  20. Rick Stoneking Sr   March 20, 2016 at 3:26 AM

    Hi Mehmet,
    You have an incredible theme here in the New Advanced NP Theme.

    I plan to use this theme for our Online Travel Magazine. But I wanted to check with you first to make sure it is suitable for that. Everything I see seems to indicate that it is perfect, but I’m afraid I know nothing about WP.

    Is it built on the Genesis Framework?

    Obviously I need something that is blazing fast with sub-second load times. Will this theme handle such speeds at high user rates, over 100,000 per day? That is just an example, since we aren’t even online yet. But I want to buy hosting and a theme, that I can scale with as high as I need too. I am going tto be using cloud servers and managed Hosting or VPS to start, with a company I can grow with. The three I am considering are:
    WPEngine, Siteground, and possibly Synthesis.

    If this will work for me, I will have several other questions, and I need to check out your installation/customization pricing. But I can email you with the others. You told someone above to use Should I use that also?

    Just one last question. Do you have any plans to add as a social media Icon?



    • Mehmet   March 20, 2016 at 7:21 PM

      Hi Rick

      Thanks for your nice comment. Advanced Newspaper would suit well for an online travel magazine. FWIW, It will actually work well as any online magazine sites.

      Its not built on Genesis. We have coded the base of Advanced Newspaper ourselves.

      The theme will handle just fine any number of visitors. Its all matter of how well the caching is set on your server, how good the configuration of your server, DNS provider and CDN services you got. The theme alone can’t do much, but to assure you; its coded the best way we could have it coded. And Its our most popular theme.

      You may email me directly at for further questions.

      As for icon -> WAYN is not part of Font Icons library that we use at the moment.

      It will be no problem to add it as soon as it part of Font Awesome.

  21. aparna   April 7, 2016 at 4:01 AM

    Does this theme support Bengali language?

    • Mehmet   April 13, 2016 at 8:35 AM

      Yes, it does Aparna

  22. Chel   April 19, 2016 at 3:54 AM

    Good day! Why I removed the “Active Resources”: Advanced Newspaper?

  24. Norm   June 24, 2016 at 12:47 PM

    Is this theme updated? Cannot see any change log date and update dates.

    • Mehmet   June 24, 2016 at 6:22 PM

      Hi Norm,
      We did not update the Changelog on demo server, but the theme was last updated on April 2016 after the release of WordPress 4.5

  25. Norman   June 25, 2016 at 3:27 PM

    May i see the latest change log?

    • Mehmet   June 25, 2016 at 4:05 PM

      Sure, here it is

  26. Mark   June 28, 2016 at 12:36 PM

    We’ve been shopping for a news theme template, but know nothing about writing code. First, is the advanced newspaper theme newby friendly, and second, will the advanced newspaper theme work with the Beaver Builder page builder plugin?

    • Mehmet   July 3, 2016 at 2:07 PM

      Hi Mark,

      Yes the theme is easy to use, but its not designed to work with any page builders.

  27. Norman   July 9, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    May i see the updated changelog? And how often do you udpate this theme?

  28. Norman   July 9, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Does this have sticky menu function?

    • Mehmet   July 10, 2016 at 7:16 AM

      Nope, sticky sidebar only.

  29. Norman   July 12, 2016 at 7:36 AM

    Can i make the main layout full-width?

    • Mehmet   July 12, 2016 at 8:41 AM

      No, its only fixed width.

      • Norman   July 12, 2016 at 10:36 AM

        How can i accomplish that?

      • Norman   July 12, 2016 at 10:54 AM

        In can change the color of the gray section surrounding the box layout to white and any other color?

        • Mehmet   July 18, 2016 at 3:57 AM

          Yes the background can be white. And no, its not that easy to make the template fluid.

  30. Norman   July 12, 2016 at 7:47 AM

    Is there any way i can put latest news widget to the main layout?

    • Mehmet   July 12, 2016 at 8:41 AM

      Not sure what you mean with latest news widget. You mean kind of ticker plugin?

      • Norman   July 12, 2016 at 10:27 AM

        Similat to editors pick but in latest news/article form

  31. Norman   July 12, 2016 at 8:20 AM

    Do you plan to add sticky menu?

    • Mehmet   July 12, 2016 at 8:41 AM

      Yes, we might add it in the future.

  32. Alexey   July 17, 2016 at 6:12 AM

    Have nice day!
    Can i download this template with quickstart option?

    I mean – with files and database scrips with full content to do the site as in your demo?

    It is simply to inderstanding structure this site.

    • Mehmet   July 17, 2016 at 7:48 AM

      Hi Alexey,

      There is a demo content XML file and a user manual that both comes together with the theme and guides you step by step how to set it as a clone copy of live demo

    After instaling WP 4.6, Advanced theme not work properly. Only see titles and subtitles…

    • Mehmet   August 18, 2016 at 6:11 AM

      You need to download the new version and upload it to your server to solve the issue

  37. Sean   August 17, 2016 at 2:24 PM

    updated wordpress, messed up theme, installed 4.1, now everything, theme, posts, graphics has all slide to the left side of the screen…. Any ideas??

    Site is adult

    • Mehmet   August 18, 2016 at 6:12 AM

      Hi Sean,
      You need to consider as a new installation and adjust all theme settings from scratch.

  38. Sean   August 18, 2016 at 9:33 AM

    LOL Im stupid…All i had to do was remove the background image and re-upload it… Thanks for responding..

  39. Prince   December 9, 2016 at 4:00 AM

    does this theme support in Hindi and English both in one panel ?
    means that by default language in Hindi .. but i want to read in English language then click on English option.
    is it possible with this theme?

    • Mehmet   December 9, 2016 at 5:08 AM

      What you are seeking is not a theme feature. No theme can do anything about multi-language.
      Its a WordPress configuration that needs to be set using a plugin -> WPML is best option. Using WPML you can have multi language support for any theme including Advanced Newspaper which you mentioned above.

  40. Ravi   January 7, 2017 at 3:04 PM

    Hi Mehmet,
    I have purchase this theme but sorry to say after expiry of my forum subscription things are stopped working.

    suddenly webpage is splitted here and there, home page slider stopped working and funny part is that i have no forum access. I was not knowing this earlier, i thought forum is like to share the problems and ideas to help and get help from each other.
    I have more than 40K posts i dont know i should move to other theme or should stay here and wait for support from gabfire.


    • Mehmet   January 9, 2017 at 11:47 AM

      Hi Ravi,

      Unfortunately its not realistic to provide life time support, we meanwhile do provide life time free updates for our themes.
      You may purchase another theme or extend your forums support. We will solve your issue pretty quick on support forums.

  41. Jesta   January 26, 2017 at 1:30 AM

    What about SSL support? New requirements of the biggest browser are going to say a site is insecure without SSL. So, will the theme break if SSL is applied globally?

    • Mehmet   March 10, 2017 at 4:58 PM

      Sorry for delayed response. Our themes are coded SSL in mind.

    Will the ad widgets support a video ad feed from a third party advertiser?

    • Mehmet   March 29, 2017 at 2:54 AM

      Yes, it does.

    Does the theme work with PHP7.1?

    • Mehmet   June 14, 2017 at 9:58 AM

      Yes, it certainly does.

      • Mariusz Czarnas   July 24, 2017 at 6:37 AM

        Unfortunately it does not work. Works only to 7.0
