Three Great WordPress Magazine ThemesMimbo 2.2 The first magazine theme called Mimbo 2.2. Mimbo creates a wonderful area for featured articles, sub-categories and less important categories individually. This is done with ease and a little code manipulation. You can get assistance with the code from the creator Darren Hoyt. It uses category key numbers to determine what content to place where and then uses WordPress's custom fields to place the pictures. The best thing about Mimbo is it’s free! Below is a screenshot of a Mimbo 2.2 theme in use right now.
Mimbo is the only free magazine theme found that merits any recognition; but there are also two for purchase that are just as outstanding, if not more so. Revolution Revolution is a top notch, for purchase magazine theme. It is a widget-ready, customizable theme that is an ideal solution for online magazines, online newspapers and other websites that wish to use WordPress as a content management system. It offers a little more flexibility and a different homepage layout than Mimbo. Revolution also has other magazine style themes specific to news, business and more. A set can be purchased for around $80.00 for single use.
WP-Magazine Also of note is WP-Magazine Theme. It has a great scrolling image on the home page with a larger area to work with and less white space. The basic option here sells for around $80.00.
