Widgets – Where You Control Theme
Menu – Much Better
Although the menu is not sticky, but it’s just beautiful the way it looks to us. Within the Menu you can create Category mega Menu which lists out four sub categories and shows 3 latest posts based on the top level category name along with thumbnail and post title. That’s just simple wonderful feature because images in menu generate more click than the normal text links.
Apart from that you can have two menu – one primary and other shown just above the Blog Title in the header section.
Many times, a Blogger like me who has no knowledge of coding or HTML, finds it hard to insert AdSense codes. As such when you are paying for a premium theme, it should include easy integration of Ads. With TrueNews you can insert banner images and text ads in your sidebar or homepage or single posts wherever you want thanks to built-in ad positions.
