Zox News comes with a mobile-first-design, 8 article layouts, 4 Featured Posts layouts, parallax leaderboard ad, Theia Post Slider, Theia Sticky Sidebar, Reviewer Plugin, Woocommerce-ready, and so much more!

More Key Features

One-Click Demo Import Quickly set up the theme like the demo with the One Click Demo Import plugin!

RTL Ready With access to over 800+ Google fonts and a built-in RTL feature that lets you switch the stylesheet to RTL with the click of a button, it has never been easier to set your site to RTL.

Featured Headlines Most major news and magazine sites use shorter “teaser” headlines in their featured content sections. Zox News gives you the same option to spruce up your featured items in the Featured Posts section on the homepage and category pages.

Video/Audio Posts Easily replace the standard featured image in posts with embedded video or audio from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and SoundCloud.

Retina Ready The theme and its images look sharp and crisp on retina-ready devices!

800+ Google Fonts Use any of the over 800 Google Fonts to set the fonts for the general text, navigation menu text, Featured Posts & Headlines, article title, and headings.

Unlimited Colors Easily change the colors of the main background, navigation background/text, the primary theme color, and links to any color from within the Theme Options.

Unlimited Ad Units Zox News takes full advantage of available ad space to give you a myriad of options to place your ads. The ad units include a main leaderboard area with adjustable height and width that can accommodate any size ad, an Ad Widget that can accommodate 300px wide ads of any height in the sidebar as well as any size leaderboard ad in the homepage widget area. Zox News also comes with a Wallpaper Ad that spans the width of the screen and site behind the content area.

MVP Themes takes pride in its support! If you have any questions related to the setup of Zox News that are not covered by the theme documentation or if you run into any bugs with the theme, please submit a ticket at the MVP Themes Support Center.

Unfortunately, MVP Themes cannot perform customization work for each of our customers, so Zox News comes “as-is”. Any customization you would like to make to the theme outside of fixing bugs will need to be done by you or a third party.
