Please I want to know it looks like this is the same theme that Washingtonpost.com and nytimes.com use? But I guess the customized there own further. Please can you check and let me know cos I Wana buy the theme.

No, the NYTimes and Washington post do not use this theme. They have their own custom solution.

Since you say so, do you know how I can get there custom solution or were to get help or hire for that. Because I need something exactly like theirs.

Hi there :) Just to let you know that Newspread features in our latest theme roundup on Tuts+ 25 Newspaper WordPress Themes to Make Awesome News Sites in 2020. Nice job—feel free to spread the news! 

Thanks so much!

hello, i want to recreate this homepage – featured carousel with the 3 sliders. In Demo ( Home / Featured slider) I can’t seem to make the slider split into 3. How do i do that., https://themedemo.commercegurus.com/newspread/?carousel=show&slider=hide

I think it’s in: Appearance > Customize > Layout > Homepage Slider

right, but when i put homepage slider it does not split into 2 to 3 sliders. Only one slide is showing at the same time. We wanted to show 2 posts like in the demo. thank you

That homepage uses a carousel, not a slider. Appearance > Customize > Layout > Homepage Carousel

The Homepage Slider is set to ‘Hide’ and this is displayed instead.

Hi! Thanks for this really cool theme, you made a great job! Unfortunately I have some issues I can’t figure it out, I hope you can help me.

First I would like to change the widget titles font with one of mine. I installed it and I can use it on my article texte but, when I go to personnalized -> Typography -> widget titles, I can’t access to this font (it doesn’t appear on the drop down font family menu).

And I would like to hide the “h1 entry-title” on my articles pages but, I don’t understand how do it.

Have nice day,

Best, Valentine

Hi – re: fonts – the only options are ones from Google Fonts I’m afraid. But the benefit is that will typically load much faster than self-hosted ones.

Re: your other query – can you submit a support ticket via the ‘Support’ tab at the top of this page with a link to an example and we’ll try and help :)

Thank’s I will do that

Hello, I don’t see option for modifying theme layout on the customize sidebar. Is there any extra action required to perform in order to see it?

Hey there – ensure you have the ‘Kirki’ plugin active to see the Theme Options.

Appearance > Install Plugins.

If you mean something else – submit a ticket via the ‘Support’ tab at the top of this page with a screenshot with some more details.



That was it, thank you Simon!

Hi and thanks for a great theme. I want to open Social Menu in a new tab (_blank), but I cant seem to find any settings for this, Could you please advice?

Hey, how can I change this css problem: I will get the header banner in mobile view 100% full width view. Thanks for help

Hi there!

Could you submit a ticket via the ‘Support’ tab at the top of this page, including a screenshot and a link to a page where we can see an example of this.



Ciao, I would like to buy the theme Newspread. Some doubts: Is it possible to have 3 columns in the home page? Is it possible to have the photo at the top not full page but wide 1130 pixels like the page? Thank you.

Thank commercegurus! 1 – Nice. I see three columns, but unfortunately there is no sidebar. Only the content column is divided into three parts; 2 – I see that I can not put in the box the photo at the top. You give me confirmation? Ciao!

Hi there

Is this not the layout you need? https://themedemo.commercegurus.com/newspread/?blog-layout=grid%20grid-of-three&sidebar=none

You can have 2 or 3 columns in the grid layout – with or without a sidebar.

We can likely give you a snippet of css which boxes the home slider to be 1130px – and not full width.



Thank you, i’m thinking about.

This theme have email & whatsapp share besides facebook & twitter?

Hi there – with Jetpack you can include Email and WhatsApp sharing links at the bottom of a post.



Dear Simon

How can reduce the space between main menu a the main banner , please check this picture,


Thanks for your help.

Hi there

Add the following to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

.home.elementor-page .ccfw-content {
  padding: 0px;



Dear Simon, I had apply your code, but doesn’t work, look the picture please.. https://i.imgur.com/DrDX3Vx.png

thanks Armando

Hi Armando – you have pre tags wrapped around the code in the screenshot – remove them. It needs to look identical to what is pasted above.



if i want to create 2 post type like 1) City 2) Airport

A) is it possible post type City have a categories for review different from post type Airport ? like City will have 3 categories rating : Safety, Clean, Public Transportation and Airport will have : Lounge, Customer Service, Luxury ?

B) is it possible for users to create a different review for each categories i put on City / Airport post type ? like, if City have topic TOKYO, user who visit Tokyo page, will able to add different story and add different rating for categories Safety, Clean, Public Transportation ?

C) If i have Topic/post call TOKYO on post type City, is it possible in that TOKYO page, i put lot of information and show all summary rating from categories i set (Safety, Clean, Public Transportation), and when i try to access one of categories like Safety it will go to page that show all rating and review for Safety in Tokyo ?

Thanks, i hope it clear enough :)

Hi there,

What you’re describing is not possible with Newspread. For something like that you should consider a plugin like https://wpgeodirectory.com/

Best, Colm

This isn’t a support issue – I just want to say thank you for creating such an elegant and easy-to-use theme. It’s worked perfectly for my project. Keep up the good work. Paul.

You are very welcome. I have left a review. Sorry but I have just a quick question – Are you able to tell me the CSS Class to add in the menu for the “NEW” label displayed next to the category link please? A bit of a newbie here! :-)

Many Thanks!


Hi Paul

Thanks so much for the lovely review!

So, to add a label next to a menu item.

  1. Go to Appearance > Menus – click on ‘Screen Options’ at the top and tick ‘CSS Classes’
  2. Edit the menu item you wish the label to appear and enter in the CSS Classes field: my-custom-label
  3. Save the menu
  4. Go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS – and add the snippet of code at the bottom. Change the “New” text to something else if you wish.
body .blog-menu > li.my-custom-label > a span:after {
    content: "New";
    line-height: 12px;
    top: 50%;
    font-size: 8px;
    margin-top: -8px;
    margin-left: 8px;
    position: relative;
    top: -2px;
    color: #fff;
    padding: 2px 4px;
    border-radius: 2px;
    background: #3072e5;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    letter-spacing: .1em;



That’s brilliant – Thank you very much, Simon. Good man!


I purchased the theme and installed the demo content but i am missing f.e. the site “home > featured carousel” and many others. Could you please explain me how i get them aswell?

Thanks, Wlad

Hi Wlad,

Replied via email,



Hi C&C news layouts are not supporting child categories.Can you fix it


I just replied to your other mail.



Hi, developer replied you but i think it is your template custom widget C&C News Template 1, 2, and 3 when we select category radio button and and than try to select category from dropdown list than their is not any child category in the list.

Best Regards


Great – let’s continue this conversation in the support ticket so we’re not talking in 2 places about the issue :)


Hello Commercegurus – first: you are doing a great job with your templates.

I would like to know if you are progressing on developing the Shop for this template. It is really basic right now – do you have a roadmap for that?

Thanks, Wlad

Hi Wlad

Thanks! Are you looking for something in particular? We’re using the core WooCommerce plugin with a cleaner design without overwriting any plugin template files to ensure nothing will break in the future.



For example the great product grid of “adrenalin” with quick preview and mouseover picture switch.

Yes, Adrenalin is a focused WooCommerce theme – Newspread is primarily a blogging theme – we’ll be focused on improving the blogging experience further moreso than adding WooCommerce functionality.



Hello, does the review structured data support the review of service/company rather than a product?

Hi kchan

Newspread uses a product rich snippet for reviews. A plugin like this offers some more: https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-schemaorg-rich-snippets/



Demo doesn’t working.

Hi Ahmet – it works fine for me.



Hello, is there anyway I can add WhatsApp sharing feature in the posts along with the current Facebook & Twitter share buttons?

Hi there,

No sorry not at present. Whatsapp is mobile only at present which means a Whatsapp sharing feature wouldn’t work on desktop devices. Our data shows us that most people will use the native device sharing features to share content via Whatsapp.
