Design your Post Pages using the Cloud Library Templates

The Newspaper theme provides you with the tagDiv Cloud Library Tool which allows you to create and customize easier perfect templates for your post pages, right on the front-end.

Introducing the Single Post Template builder

Take control of your articles by editing every aspect in the familiar interface of the tagDiv Composer page builder.

What can you do with tagDiv Composer and tagDv Cloud Library?

  • Create as many templates as you need and assign them to different posts
  • Choose where to use it: on multiple posts or a specific one. All the articles automatically use the design of the template you have previously assigned to them
  • Make changes on a template without CSS adjustments, right from the frontend tagDiv Composer page builder, and see the results instantly. You can make CSS specific changes like color, padding, typography, and post structure with just a click.
  • Going beyond the usual structure of a post, you can quickly add Newspaper Theme’s elements, blocks, and sections by dragging and dropping them in the desired position and see the results happening live. What this means is that you can add, for example, the Social Counter widget, a block like Popular Articles and create a sidebar or a footer designed especially for the post you’re editing in no time.
