ZoxPress is the culmination of 8+ years of WordPress theme development and customer input. With a host of new features combined with a slew of requested features over the years, ZoxPress gives you every tool and design you desire to publish the most professional news site possible. With 100 different homepage combinations, all-new Night Mode, Parallax Inline Article Ads, Auto Loaded Posts, One-Click Demo Install, and a host of other features, ZoxPress might just be the last news theme you ever purchase!
More Key Features
Over 50 Header Options – Easily set the width and height of each header section while choosing where to display the menu, logo, hamburger menu, Woocommerce shopping cart, social network buttons, or custom HTML. Also compatible with WordPress’ header image feature that allows you to set an image as the background of the top header.
14 Post Layouts – Choose your own stunning post layout for all posts, or for individual posts.
Google AMP Compatible – Deliver lightning-fast posts to all mobile devices with a Google AMP version of your posts, all while maintaining the same look and feel of your standard ZoxPress site.
WooCommerce Compatible – Set up a beautiful ecommerce section of your news site with full WooCommerce compatibility.
SportsPress Compatible – Want to set up a sports site with teams, schedules, standings, and scores? ZoxPress is fully compatible with the premier sports plugin SportsPress and SportsPress Pro.
900+ Google Fonts – Use any of the over 900 Google Fonts to set the font type, weight, and text transform for each different type of text on your site.
$81 In Plugins Included for Free! – Reviewer Plugin, Theia Post Slider, and Theia Sticky Sidebar are included in the theme at no extra cost.
Fully Responsive – ZoxPress delivers the same amazing layout and functionality on all devices and is built with a Mobile-First design.
Featured Headlines – Most major news and magazine sites use shorter “teaser” headlines in their featured content sections. ZoxPress gives you the same option to spruce up your featured items in the Featured Posts section on the homepage and category pages.
Retina Ready – Easily upload separate retina logos to maintain a crisp, sharp look on all retina-ready devices.
Sticky Featured Videos – ZoxPress comes with an optional feature to allow the featured video on posts to shrink and stick to the bottom of the screen while scrolling down the page so it stays visible at all times, as seen on major news sites. The user can then click a button to close the video.
Unlimited Ad Units – ZoxPress takes full advantage of available ad space to give you a myriad of options to place your ads. The ad units include a main leaderboard area with adjustable height and width that can accommodate any size ad, an Ad Widget that can accommodate 300px wide ads of any height in the sidebar as well as any size leaderboard ad in the homepage widget area. ZoxPress also comes with a Wallpaper Ad that spans the width of the screen and site behind the content area.

MVP Themes takes pride in its support! If you have any questions related to the setup of ZoxPress that are not covered by the theme documentation or if you run into any bugs with the theme, please submit a ticket at the MVP Themes Support Center.
Unfortunately, MVP Themes cannot perform customization work for each of our customers, so ZoxPress comes “as-is”. Any customization you would like to make to the theme outside of fixing bugs will need to be done by you or a third party.
