Theme Info & Details
Magazine is a responsive blog and magazine type WordPress Theme developed by Authentic Themes. Great for news sites, online magazines, and blogs this theme offers a clean and minimal approach to the often times over-bloated magazine theme design.
This theme is great for magazines and blogs that want a simple layout, easy to use features, and the focus on their content. Plus there are nifty features such as a custom logo option and ad space easily controlled via the theme options panel. All you have to do is drop in your custom logo and add in your banner HTML and you’re good to go!
The homepage featured slider is also a breeze to set up through the options panel. You just set which category you’d like to feature and the slider scrolls through those posts (use a category you already have, or set up a special “featured” category to focus on just a few key posts). You can also set how many of those posts you’d like to feature (the slider will show the newest x-number of posts from the category that you select).
Magazine also includes Authentic Shortcodes for buttons, tabs, toggles and more, as well as a full-width template and Contact Form 7 styling. This is a great theme, and if you’d like to learn more about it checkout the bullets below!

Magazine WordPress Theme – What We Like:
The clean aesthetic is divine. We love that there isn’t a bunch of fluff in the theme. This puts all of the focus on content, and not endless widgets, icons and junk. We also really appreciate the simple typography reminiscent of a traditional newspaper or magazine. It’s a clever and playful throwback that we really like.
Magazine WordPress Theme – What Could Be Improved:
This is a minimal theme, so lots of options you might be used to aren’t there. It would be nice if there were a few color variations, or a dark version of the theme just to add some variety. Also, more ad spots would be nice to help with monetization.
