Publishing with a point of view

Think of it as an “opinionated” CMS that combines the best of what the industry has learned about publishing and revenue generation, while giving you the flexibility to focus on journalism and express your brand as you see fit.

Powered by WordPress

Newspack is built on WordPress, the world’s premier open-source CMS, powering over a third of the web.

The popularity of WordPress rests on the tens of thousands of open-source plugins that give it almost infinite flexibility. But that can also be a headache.

To simplify your setup, Newspack comes with over 50 pre-configured plugins carefully selected for news publishers so you know they’re sound, secure and suited to your needs.

Backed by years of expertise

Newspack’s leadership team has over 70 years experience in digital news and technology development — from small startups to large organizations, including The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Join the bandwagon

Over 50 news sites have signed on with Newspack in its first year. They include the 130-year-old Bangor Daily News and The Oaklandside, a Bay Area startup that debuted June 16.

A third of our sites are outside the U.S., including the Hong Kong Free Press, Transitions Online and Asia Times.
