The Daily News theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for bloggers who are into the news industry. This theme has a magazine design with built-in advertising blocks, giving you more options to earn revenue from your blogging efforts. This theme has everything you need to blog like a pro. On the homepage, you have a late breaking news bar at the very top of the theme.
Below this, directly adjacent to your logo image, is a 728 x 90 advertising block. Social media profile links are built in the top header of this theme to help gain new followers.
The homepage is broken up into different sections with custom widgets to set up that gives this theme a true magazine/newspaper. A side column and footer widgets are included.
Also, the blog post featured images are huge.What I like best is that some of the post meta information is right below the featured image, but it looks integrated into the feature image. The after entry widget is a great widget to use for your autoresponder box. Lot’s more hidden gems with this theme. Do explore the demo version when you have a moment.
