I'm looking to convert an existing html-based website to a SilverStripe CMS. Before I can do that, I'd need a newspaper theme to base its stricture and format on. Ideally, something like the Wp Advanced Newspaper Theme by Gabfire - which I believe can work only on WordPress. Something similar to this, with many/all of its features would be acceptable.

Any idea whether something like this is currently under development?

Would SilverStripe be able to add this kind of theme to the existing set of available themes?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I had a look at that theme, and I suggest you to have a custom theme, because you may need to add specific information at specif places of the website, such as head lines, political news, defence related, and images etc.. And I do think that this is not something which you can achieve alone with a theme, but you will have to customize the back end too for this.
