I’ve put together a top of 10 brand-new magazine WordPress themes I consider the best releases in June 2014 under this category. This month’s list is pretty diverse, with themes from bold to minimal, from media and video-centered themes to readability and content-oriented ones. We’re looking at good themes with tons of options and customizations, some of which have great, fresh and innovative designs. Check them out.
In my opinion, Edition is one of the most beautifully-designed and feature-rich magazine themes I’ve seen in the last couple of months. It has a custom page builder, slideshow builder, a great review system lots of shortcodes (via the creator’s custom plugin = the right way to do shortcodes) and many more awesome features.
Knews is a great theme for readability. It features bold , fullscreen sliders and carousels and a compact, minimal layout at the same time. It is built for all devices and has a live customizer built-in, along with a great reading progress bar in all posts. Check it out! It’s my second favorite this month.
Bamboo is a complete WordPress magazine theme, packed with everything you need from such a theme. It includes a clean, fully-responsive layout, 14 custom widgets (wow!), a fully-customizable homepage via widgets and it is SEO-optimised.
Neue is one of the most feature-rich magazine themes this month. It includes a drag’n’drop page builder, integrated review system, built-in post like and count system and has great WooCommerce shop and bbPress forum support. It is also optimised for great speed.
Grideon is a pretty interesting and unique concept (for me, at least) in terms of design and layout. It comes with 4 custom widgets, 6 widgetized areas, 6 post formats (image, audio, video, gallery, standard, quote), 2 Blog page layouts and tons of theme options via the Redux Framework Options Panel.
Marroco has a great clean and smooth feel, making it perfect for minimalist magazine and blog websites. Though the design is minimal, the core of this theme is solid. The theme has a drag’n’drop page builder, a custom review system, megamenu, WooCommerce support, Google Fonts, custom shortcodes and lots more.
Karo features, first of all, a beautiful fullscreen post slider and a lot of layout options. It also has unlimited sidebars, a custom built-in review system, WooCommerce shop compatibility, social options and lots of options in the theme panel.
This WordPress theme is in my top of this month because of its nice and clean design and because of its great functionality. Bblog comes with tons of features such as a built-in review system, lots of layout options, WooCommerce shop and bbPress forum integration, 8 custom widgets and lots more.
Video Magazine is great for video websites. Every element is a custom widget (there are over 10 built-in) and can be added to the widget areas that are everywhere. It features an easy-to-use page builder, dozens of shortcodes and a very powerful theme options panel packed with lots of customisations.
Revival is a minimal, clean and bold fullscreen magazine and blog theme. It has good readability, it is responsive and has a powerful built-in review system. With multiple customisable layouts, custom widgets and theme panel features, you can do anything with Revival.
