WordPress Magazine Themes

WordPress Magazine Themes

There are no shortage of great looks when it comes to a WordPress site.  One look in particular, the Magazine Theme, is starting to gain some ground.  WordPress magazine themes can be a tiny bit more complex than a typical 1 or 2 column layout, but they do offer a professional feel.

The basic magazine theme will highlight a number of stories on the home page of your blog.  You’ll find many examples if you view various news sites (like CNN).  The goal is to show a quick “teaser” of the story and encourage the user to click-through to the actual post.

What can you use a magazine theme for?

  • Highlight various departments of your business – What’s Marketing up to?  How about Accounting?
  • Showcase the many brands you offer – This might be great for a review site.
  • Display your gallery – Magazine themes are perfect for photographers or others wanting to show images.
  • Present products your selling – Great if you have an online store!

Remember, the “stories” within the magazine themes can hold images, text or both.  They are pretty versatile!

As I mentioned earlier, these themes can be a little tricky to setup for a complete WordPress newbie, but with most premium themes offering tutorials, you should be fine.  Of course as a free member of WPTrainingVideos.com you’ll have access to over 30 free WordPress training videos if you need to brush up on your basics!
