Byline is a complete magazine theme, using the power of WordPress to generate a clean design with flexible options.

Select different colours for each category to give your content an easily distinguishable feel, that differentiates your website from everyone elses.

Byline uses the combined power of the Elemental Theme Framework, with WordPress to create a flexible dynamic system that matches the needs of the modern content managed website.

Elemental Included For No Extra Cost!

Elemental is a required part of Byline Newspaper Theme. Purchased separately Elemental costs $59 for the basic version; but with Byline it is included, for no extra cost!

Elemental is a WordPress theme framework, a special theme that does the complicated stuff so that Byline doesn't have too. The big advantage of a WordPress theme framework is that the functionality is kept separate from the design. This means that updates and bug fixes can be released more easily, and more regularly meaning a better theme for you.
