Frontpage : The product documentation explains a lot about homepage setup. It says that homepage is getting a magazine style layout so that site owners don’t have to work manually. Just pick magazine widgets to display featured posts in unique styles. Admin user can select a categories for home sections and then define total number of posts and custom title for each block.
You can either follow a magazine/news or blog style homepage that really depends on your goal. Affiliate marketers and bloggers choose list style blog as homepage.

Theme Options : Whatever features we will discuss in FrezNews review is covered by options panel. You are ready to work with visual options without coding knowledge. Just a basic knowledge of computer and WordPress is enough to manage a journal site. The main theme options include typography, colors, header, font, blog posts, homepage, widget areas, ad sections and more.
Footer : We have seen many people ignoring footer for content promotion. The demo says that footer can be good place to promote featured posts, social links, author detail and newsletter form. You have 4 widgets columns in footer area so that readers are connected to contents again when they reach on bottom.
If you have boring design then people would easily leave your website from single post, footer and other sections. The “Back To Top” is a floating link given on the right bottom side with this magazine template. You can always see it ready to take you to the top of the website with one click only.
