If I could select every reason for 5 stars i would SELECT ALL.
These guys have thought of everything with this theme and I highly recommend it. This coming from a guy who has been tinkering online since before it was called "the internet" and I have been chopping away at web dev for close to 30 years.
One thing they did right was focus on ONE theme (well in this case 2, with newsmag and newspaper which to my understanding has a similar build, but I could be wrong). But they havent tried to be all things to all people by puking out 287 niche themes and mastering none. They have mastered this, in my humble opinion.
Sure, nothing is perfect, but with the hundreds of themes I have used, this has got to be the most complete and most flexible and closest to perfect in existence.
I used to enjoy tweaking around with WP Bakery builder and I would ignore their own tagdiv builder. Boy was I missing out. Once I started tinkering with their builder, Im hooked and I have now disabled that resource hog WP Bakery for good.
Every time I think I want to customize something, I look and see that they have already thought of it and its all there in the backend theme panel.
I cannot recommend this Newsmag theme enough.
