    There are some really good online publications.

    I just read through El Estoque. Does anyone know what template is used? It is one of my favorite.

    Thanks, Bryan. The kids adapted the theme “Magazinum” from WPZoom .

    Anyone else curious about another school’s theme? Here’s a tip: if you install a toolbar that allows you to see the source code of a page, you can usually find basic information like theme names, colors used, etc. It’s also a great way to quickly find out if a site is WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal…

    You are welcome. (and thanks Michelle for the source code tip.) I have accessed the screen by mistake. Now I know what to do with it.

    Maybe you or someone else can answer another question.

    Do we know the oldest online publication on the list of crown winners? I am curious how publications were started, but also how they have changed.
