The Gossip is an ultra-wide, modern and fully responsive magazine WordPress theme that can be used for any type of website. The great thing with The Gossip is that it makes use of the space on wider screens, starting at 1440px all the way down to mobile devices. If you want your site to make an impact then look no further.
UNLIMITED LAYOUTSThis theme uses shortcodes to create the homepage. The shortcodes come with a ton of options and can be moved around the page meaning there is unlimited possibly for homepage layouts. The default homepage set up comes preinstalled with theme, but here’s a few other set ups to show you what is possible with this theme: Homepage Example 1, Homepage Example 2, Homepage Example 3.
REVIEW SYSTEMThe theme comes with an easy to use review system. Both the post author and visitor can rate posts. Choose to display the ratings at the top or bottom of the page. You can also display and order your ratings on any category page or posts shortcodes. The review system uses rich snippets (schema.org) that Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo! recognise so ratings can be displayed in search results.
AUTO INSTALLATION & DEMO CONTENTOnce the theme is activated it automatically installs the necessary pages so you can get the theme set up in under a minute. Additionally you can install the demo content to get the theme looking exactly like the live preview site.
RESPONSIVEThe theme is completely responsive meaning the theme adapts to any screen size from a large computer all the way down to a mobile device. Try it for yourself, resize your browser window and see how the theme changes to fit the window.
RETINA/HIGH RESOLUTION SUPPORTAll the latest Apple products display things at a higher resolution, meaning your existing website images look a little pixelated or blurry on these devices. Retina displays will become more common place in the future so consider this when purchasing a theme. This theme offers total retina support by using font icons instead of image icons and doubling the image resolution on retina displays to ensure your website looks crystal clear.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)SEO is top priority with this theme and is vital for a top Google ranking. Important content is placed before the sidebar regardless of the sidebar position so it is crawled first by search engines. Headings are wrapped in heading tags (h1, h2, h3 etc) to tell the search engine they are important. The theme also uses heavy internal linking through related posts, primary navigation menus, sidebar and footer navigation.

Ok, 10 mins in and I have a brand new, clean, fast and super easy to maintain page! Amazing job guys. – leszekem
After 2 days with this theme, I have to say it’s one of the easiest out-of-the-box themes I’ve ever worked with. The dev is extremely responsive and already released a v1.1! What more can you ask for? 5 stars no doubt. – dantehicks
Thanks! Again I wanted to compliment you on the coding and complete transparency to the spiders from google and other search sites. I don’t even have to update my sitemap…it does it for me every time I do a post!!! Google authorship couldn’t have been easier with correct coding as well. Love the way it looks! Eye grabbing and commands users to read articles and have them noticed. I’ve purchased about 8 different themes over the years and this one I can confidently lets me do what I need to with out overwhelming concern about how my site rates due to the programming. Thanks again!!! – DVANHELD
This is the most advance theme I’ve ever purchached for wordpress. This theme gives (through shortcodes) many options and can make wordpress an advanced CMS. Check this fully responsive portal we’ve made with this theme at Citypaper.gr. Thank you very much for this awesome theme. – firebit
I modified this theme for the reviews on my site > you integrate reviews. I added a new image resize script because I didn’t like the one the theme used > you add a new one. I was looking into installing a megamenu plugin > now integrated. Dude, can you read my mind?? To anyone doubting to buy this theme, buy it now! Support is great, and all the options make it really easy to modify the theme. – jaspervd

To all those of you who would like to purchase this Wordpress Theme, and have not decided yet… I would like to leave my personal and super positive feedback on The Gossip theme, and on its author GhostPool. I worked with this theme very hard for nearly 1 month. Had to migrate the existing website (+400 posts, 30pages) to a more responsive, clear, ultrawide and very well organised web portal, and decided to go with this item on Envato. Just want to tell you that today I finally switched to the new online version of Time Lapse Italia. The feedback from my users it awesome, but most of all… it’s been a REAL PLEASURE to work with GP’s support! Fast, precise, kind: these guys rock, you can trust me! Have been on Envato for nearly 3 years now, purchased lots of themes and code snippets. GhostPool simply provides one of THE BEST support service here on Envato, so… if you still doubt about this, purchase with confidence. Bravo GhostPool, hugs from Italy and thanks for assisting me during all this long process! – Marco – Founder of Time Lapse Italia
