    Magazine themes are the quickest way of avoiging a blog-aspect in your website, it’s just a matter of diaplying content in multilpe columns, having a good gallery feature and providing feature images for each article. If you want something personal and unique, these things can be done if you have flexible enough tools. I prefer to use Lubith and create my own design, but always taking as point of departure already available clean and attractive themes.

    Will these themes work with wp 3.5?

    1. Web Design

      They may or may not work with WP 3.5. You’d have to test the theme you are interested in to see compatibility.
