As the name indicate Reporter is a News magazine theme. This is a fab series theme. The homepage of this theme is crafted with different modules which enables it to function as an intuitive news magazine interface.  For example there is an auto scrolling  news ticker below the menu bar. This will display latest posts from a particular category you select.  It holds a featured slider on the homepage.

Another interesting feature is the two highlight news boxes on the homepage. These 2 sections pull posts from  2 different categories to display on the homepage. This is also configurable from the theme option page.  The sidebar of the theme holds a section for featured video, tabbed content area, twitter updates, banner ads etc.

    I seem to be unable to set a featured image for the existing posts. It allows for one in the post edit dashboard but then when I try to upload something I get an error message and it also does not display the image library. I did a default setting for posts that do not have a featured image, so right now all the posts have the same image, but that function seems to be working fine so one would assume that it all works.
