WP Theme: OneNews – Popurls/Alltop Clone

Popurls is the ultimate source for the latest web buzz and a daily must-read for me. I thought I can work out something similar to keep track of the buzz on WordPress and thus OneNews was born. With this news aggregator theme, you can even create unlimited pages of news like Alltop. Now you can have

  • unlimited pages with your targeted keywords

I love the OneNews theme! Actually, I loved it so much that I bought it and am using it on my newly launched site Gururls.
Here’s how your OneNews theme helped me out…
Getting the idea: $0 dollars
Registering the domain: $9 dollars
Buying the OneNews theme: $65 dollars
Saving copious amounts of time, launching uberfast and not pulling out all my hair: Priceless.

My client asks for a news aggregation site for World Crude Report. I spend 25 hours in WordPress, then move to Joomla! for another 13 hours, and still can’t get what I want… I don’t buy stuff I can do–ever, but obviously I can’t do this. I purchased this template, and got it up and running in no time at all.
