Nowadays, people prefer online news websites over newspapers. This preference has led into the birth of several news sites and magazine sites. Several news sites use WordPress: TechCrunch, CNN, Forbes, The New York Times, etc. It is very easy to add content to your news site if you are on WordPress. The problem comes when you need to select a premium / free news WordPress theme for your website.
News and magazine websites are a pool of information. Your website has to present the information (news / posts) in a well organized and attractive manner. Otherwise, your visitors may not find what they want or even dislike your website. Therefore, all the hard work you put on creating content may become worthless if you use a theme that is not well organized. And many free news WordPress themes are not good enough to build an attractive news site. However, this doesn’t apply in the case for eMag.
