Many of you may know that last week we released a multi-functional free wordpress news theme named “Global News” and due to some technical reasons we had to remove it from our servers. And now, after scanning all files as we promised, we are again making it available to our readers exclusively.
“Global News”, as the name implies, is a Newspaper Style WordPress Theme that has all the features of a typical newspaper site. This theme was designed by InstantShift and developed by RapidXHTML as an exclusive gift for our readers.
The idea was to design an universal WordPress News Theme that’s focused on content and images, with an invisible, yet typical newspaper design. News themes are often very hard to customize and difficult to handle for a single person but this time we want to design this theme with various admin options and widgets to make your life simple.

The basic idea behind this theme first comes in mind when we looked around and saw that there are only very few good news themes available over web for WordPress platform and most of them are premium or paid once. So, we wanted to create something useful and make it available to share with design community for FREE. That is one of few strong reasons which inspired us to design this theme. Therefore, we sit together and draw the rough idea on paper. When the things had finished up with designing part the next question which comes in our mind is the conversion of design. The aim was to design an universal WordPress news theme that’s focused on content and images, with an invisible, yet typical newspaper design.
News themes are often very hard to customize and difficult to handle for a single person but this time we want to design this theme with various admin options and widgets to make your life simple. There really are very few limits to what WordPress can handle, so we’ve decided to built in a lot of custom features and some admin options to give people a little flexibility in handling, and give them a feel that how some small functionality tweaks can make a huge difference to the overall experience of browsing a news theme/blog. This time we’ve decided to not to code this theme by our own so we’ve stumbled upon many designers around and finally contacted RapidxHTML for the conversion part and i must say we’re surprised with their designing skills and we had fulfilled with all our expectations and even more.
After running few successful tests and plugin optimization we’ve finally end up with current theme. Hope you all going to like it.
