Very new to this sort of thing. What's the best template for a news + articles + feature based website. Have no idea how to bring recent articles as links in the homepage for example. Whatculture and bleacher report are examples of the sort of site I would want.

All templates have regular Pages and Text Blocks, which it sounds like will be your two main building blocks in creating your site. For news and updates, you may also consider using a Blog Page as you can create a new post each day, which will then display in chronological order with the most recent post/update at the top.

See here for more information on using a Blog Page.

A couple of templates that may interest you are Om or Five.

To add external links to recent articles, you can either create a Navigation Link or a text link within the page content.

I am also interested in this - I am looking to have a single page where I can post focused and curated news articles for a specific audience. What I am really looking for is to post links in a grid format and they auto-generate a preview similar to how LinkedIN or Facebook does when you copy a link into a new post. Any suggestions here?


See example attached....

A news theme in WordPress should contain a lot of informational elements, most of which are displayed on the main page. These may include: a selection of recent entries from all categories, sliders, tabs, blocks of favorites, several menus in the header, a huge footer. If you need content for the website contact me-I'm an experienced writer and am currently write assignments for students at the research proposal writing service at  https://writix.co.uk/research-proposal-writing-service. I advise you to google and read reviews of the various templates. That will be most effective.
