Multinews is a premium theme published by Momizat a team based in Egypt. While their portfolio is not the largest their themes are high quality and comes with many features. Multinews is built on the redux options framework and it allows you to do customize everything from the homepage layout, to a post by post basis. Ever wanted to customize the header of any widget on your website? You can do that, want to show off the best places around town along with your blog? You can do that Multinews is very flexible and a very powerful theme.

Multinews integrates some of the most popular plugins on the market such as bbPress, BuddyPress, WooCommerce, Geodirectory, and Visual Composer. This allows you to create a very powerful theme that offers a lot to your users. With a built-in review system, and a weather page you are able to act as an official news website. The theme is also marked up with proper schema markup and it is built to help your website rank highly in Google.

However there are some issues with the theme that make it rather disappointing the homepage is not completely flexible you are required to pick one of the 4 different category blocks (ones with a sidebar) or the layout will not work. Furthermore, the weather widget sometimes has issues as it uses the OpenWeather API and this can fail meaning both the page and the widget will no longer function. But this is rare and in the next update the developer has stated that they are working on a way to better handle this error.

There are some things that I would like to see improved with theme though as it is not perfect and it has its own faults.

  • Integrate the portfolio features from GoodNews
  • Reduce database queries and improve load time
  • Improve the integration between the theme and Geodirectory
  • Allow for a better homepage design.
  • Integrate a new page type for stocks and stock related news (RSS, Your own posts, etc).
  • Integrate a new post/page type for company profiles (such as Forbes).
