Headline Theme

[ Headline 2.0 Theme for WordPress ] Headline version 2.0 now available for download! Like the Apathy Theme, Monzilla Media’s new “Headline” theme for WordPress is bandwidth friendly, XHTML strict, and employs universal fonts & colors. Also like the Apathy theme, Headline presents as a digital version of the classic printed newspaper. Indeed, whereas Apathy is a full-screen, fluid three-column layout, Headline sports a streamlined, fixed-width three-column layout that looks great even at smaller resolutions (e.g., 800×600). The latest version, Headline 2.0, also features additional graphical embellishments, enhanced list action, sharper layout, cleaner code, and improved functionality.

  1. Beautiful theme. The perfect newspaper effect I’ve been looking for. I will probably just add some touches of my own in a style, and leave the rest as is. Thank you for sharing.

    This is the best for my needs and an absolutely beautiful theme. Thank you for your time and commitment to making Headlines unique and XHTML Compliant.

  3. Hi, I love the Headline theme but I do have a few issues. I’m using WordPress 2.3.2. Some things that don’t work are: Popular Posts, Nothing Category, a “Random Quote” I added which employs an Ajax script to load a new quote when you hit “Next Quote”, and sometimes a post doesn’t display on the index of the blog. The missing post is there and you can see it under archives or under its category. It’s really odd. And as for the Random Quote it’s a sidebar widget and it seems that the theme doesn’t like sidebar widgets at all. I chose this theme (obviously) because I loved the look but also because it was on a list of fully compatible themes. I understand that the WordPress version I’m using is newer than the theme and I’m just curious as to whether you plan on an update.

    Thanks.
