Installing pre-built websites

The Newspaper theme comes with unique designs for your website. Our pre-built websites were carefully tested so you don’t have to create everything from scratch, just choose a template, a click and you’re done.

Preview / Install pre-built website:

You can preview the desired pre-built website before installing it. Go to Newspaper > Install pre-built websites section. There you will find all our available pre-built websites. Choose the one you like and click on the Preview button to Preview a pre-built websites or Install button to install a pre-built website.

Pre-built website requirements

Each particular pre-built website has it’s own required plugins to work properly. If the pre-built website is grayed out, it means you do not have the needed plugin to be able to use that particular pre-built website.

The required plugins are provided in the plugins section of the theme. The requirement will be shown once you hover over the pre-built website install button:

Include / Exclude content:

You can install a pre-built website importing all settings and content or just the settings. Go to Newspaper > Install pre-built websites section. Choose the one you like and turn to ON or OFF the Include content setting.

  • When this option is ON, the pre-built website will also install content (posts, categories, menus, etc.).
  • When this option is OFF, the pre-built website will just include the predefined settings.

***Important notice: If you choose to install a pre-built website with content, do not edit the content and use it as your site content, because the pre-built website content will get removed when uninstalling or switching pre-built websites. If you want to keep the content as your own, please create a copy of the page and use the copy as your content.

Uninstall a pre-built website:

If you decide to change the pre-built website or uninstall it, the import system will make sure that your website is clean: no additional sidebars, menus or content. It will leave your website just like it was before you installed the pre-built website.

To uninstall a pre-built website go to Newspaper > Install pre-built websites section. Click on the Uninstall button.
