    • Hi, Amit!

      We are glad you like our website! wpion.com is built using Newsmag Theme which we sell exclusively on themeforest.net, but our development team made various custom modifications on the original template. You can find more about Newsmag theme and check out the live preview here – https://goo.gl/B8JnaL. You could also check the ionMag Premium News theme – https://goo.gl/P8P4hv – as we used it as inspiration for some of the custom modifications.
