Introduced on 11/19/13 and updated on 4/29/14, News Pro is a 2 or 3 column theme with 6 layout options. The theme includes a landing page template. Beyond the WordPress standards of custom menus and threaded comments, the News Pro theme also supports custom headers, custom backgrounds, a mobile specific menu, multiple color styles (blue, green, pink, orange, and red – the default), and Google web fonts (specifically Pathway Gothic One and Raleway). The selected fonts and weights including dashicons add about 80 Kb to the site’s page weight.
