<h1>News WordPress theme</h1>

<p><em>News</em> is a theme that was designed to answer many of the problems that other "news" themes have in the WordPress community.  Rather than simply slapping a big featured slider above a list of posts and calling it a news theme, we spent time looking at what makes news sites work and translated those features into a WordPress theme.</p>

<p>The theme has multiple sidebars, extra custom templates, theme-specific widgets, video and slideshow post types, and many other awesome features.  It was built to actually handle the presentational aspects of a real-world news site.</p>

<h2>Theme demo</h2>

<p>While the WordPress theme repository will provide a demo, it's extremely generic and doesn't accentuate all the theme features.  We've put together a demo for you.</p>

<p>To get a look at this theme in action, you should take a look at the DevPress <a href="" title="News theme demo">News demo</a>, which is where you'll see each feature in use.  It will give you a good look at how the theme works.</p>

<h2>Installation and usage</h2>

<p>This theme is too massive to provide good documentation via this readme file.  We've created several tutorials for getting you started on our site.</p>

<h2>Child themes</h2>

<p><em>News</em> was built as an advanced parent theme.  You should <strong>never</strong> directly modify anything within the <code>news</code> theme folder.  We cannot support such usage.  Rather than modifying <em>News</em> theme files, you should create a child theme.</p>

<p><em>Don't know how to create a child theme?</em>  No problem.  We've created a <a href="" title="Creating child themes for the News theme">child theme tutorial</a> for you.</p>

<p>Note that child themes are now the officially-supported way of modifying themes in WordPress.</p>

<h2>Theme support</h2>

<p>Support for the <em>News</em> theme is not offered on the WordPress support forums.  We have a community called <a href="" title="DevPress">DevPress</a> where we offer support of all our themes and plugins.  We encourage you to sign up to the site to use its support forums and become a part of our community.</p>
