Say hello to our newest theme, Blogzine! It is the little brother of the popular Magazino theme, featuring many of the same stylings and customization options but reflecting a more traditional blog layout. Download info below.
You can easily upload your own logo or background image, choose any primary theme color and it has a really flexible home page slider. With the slider you can feature the latest posts (default) or control which posts to feature using the sticky posts feature of WordPress. Overall a really nice, clean and flexible theme.
This theme is only available to WP Themes subscribers, but it is free to join and when you do we’ll instantly send you the download link for this theme. Grab it now…
Check out our latest theme, Noteworthy. It’s a magazine style theme with a heavy focus on the featured images, and is heavily inspired by the design of USAToday.com, infact you could call it an homage.
It supports all the usual WP features like custom menus and widgets, and also has a nice reveal/hide search box and some handy social links top of the sidebar. Couple of other things to note about this theme:
You must define featured images for your posts if you want an image to display on the home page or archive pages.
By default the home page featured article and the list of featured articles just displays the most recent posts, but the theme is coded so that you can define what exactly appears here using the built in sticky posts feature of WordPress. The latest sticky post will be the main feature with the big image while older sticky posts will be list to the right of this. That won’t be to everyone’s taste, but we did it like this because we wanted to be able to control what was featured at the top of the page. The tiled posts will always just be the latest.
UPDATE 01/03/13 – Just updated the theme with much better handling/resizing of thumbnails. Also here a demo at noteworthytrends.com
Infoist is another nice and simple blog theme. It features muted colors and nice typography, the idea being to place all the emphasis on the content. Expecting that folks will use it for personal blogs we’ve added social media buttons which are easily set up through a theme options page in the admin.
Here’s our latest theme. It is kinda retro in its color and font choices., but is otherwise a straight up blog theme with a handy stick post style which you can use to feature any post at the top of the home page.
Do you like the retro styling? I do, and I’m inclined to do more, but will only do that if the response is good. Cheers.
