Tech Patrol’s 2017 blog’s layout

At Tech Patrol, the layout is as important as the content. That’s why we are introducing a new theme, new website’s look for 2017.

WordPress Advantage

One of the best features of having a self-hosted blog is the freehand of customizing it anytime you want. You can explore lots of WordPress themes and most of the times, they are too, are customizable also.

And with a little help from YouTube videos and other online tutorials, you can level-up the customization through CSS.


[junkie-hightlights color=”green”]CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language.[/junkie-hightlights] [www.w3.org]


From MyThemeShop’s NewsPaper Theme to Theme Junkie’s Review Pro

When we re-branded from DigitalSpidey to Tech Patrol, we implemented MyThemeShop’s theme NewsPaper. Almost everything was customized – from fonts, numbers of CSS, ads placement, colors and much more.

NewsPaper Theme

We chose NewsPaper theme because it loads very fast, period.

However, we were looking for something that this theme could not deliver. We want more, so to speak.

NewsPaper theme cost only USD47 instead of the regular price USD69.

ReviewPro by Theme Junkie

Theme Junkie has been around since 2009. They have several themes to offer including non-Wordpress and also few plugins which are offered for free.

What we like about Theme Junkie is the customer support. Radek and his team are quick to respond to any inquiry.

Review PRO falls under News category of Theme Junkie. It is a highly customizable theme and most of all, it is a responsive theme.


[junkie-hightlights color=”yellow”]A responsive WordPress theme is a theme that was developed to look good across all screens. Meaning that if your website is responsive then visitors viewing it on your mobile device can read the site information easily and navigate through the site without hassle.[/junkie-hightlights] [themelab.com]


The best part of Review Pro WordPress Theme offers different pre-built layout through the Site Origin Page Builder plugin. When you spend time in exploring it, you will find lots of interesting layouts that would fit your own taste for your blog.

In case you want to leave the theme on “stock” version, you may do so. But expect that you will encounter the same layout out there very soon.

Review Pro cost only USD39.

Tech Patrol’s 2017 Layout

The new layout of the blog presents several units of the website on the front page. Just below the header, the recent reviews is presented through a slider. Viewers can easily slide through the last six (6) reviews.

Below the slider is the latest news, in this unit readers will see the latest news we post.

We also implemented “featured video”, wherein we can post our latest video or sponsored video ads can be placed there as well.

On the left side are the “popular posts” and the “most views post”. This shows the top five (5) popular blog posts in the past.

The sidebar offers the search bar, ads box, recent posts in thumbnail and much more.

The best part is this layout auto-adjusts in all kind of screens — desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. This is what we call responsive theme.
