A new magazine theme you may ask? Well, at least it’s a good one, and we really think that it deserves a place in our collection. Even if it wasn’t in our plans to release a new magazine theme, it all started when we initially planned to release a major update for Zenko Magazine theme, but as the new version has been considerably different from the original version, we decided that it would be much better to create a new theme from scratch, and retire Zenko Magazine theme in the near future.
Now that you know the story behind the scenes, we’d like to announce the release of our new theme – Alpha:
Theme Key Features
- Responsive Design
- Image/Video Slideshow
- Magazine & Newspaper Skins
- Tabbed Widgets
- Breaking News Ticker
- Video Widget
Alpha is a 3-column theme with a responsive design, and includes two absolutely unique styles: Magazine and Newspaper:
Alpha automagically adapts to fit any screen resolution, including tablets and smartphones such as iPhones and iPads. The theme is also touch enabled, meaning on devices with touchscreens, you’re able to swipe through the theme’s video slider very easily.
Responsive design is about ensuring your site’s visitors have a great experience visiting your website regardless of which platform they’re on. Alpha does that by offering more than just a design which shrinks when you visit it on a smartphone or tablet.
Breaking News Ticker
A built-in news ticker allows you to quickly create a set of breaking news, which are highlighted at the top of the front page, just like you’ve seen on popular news sites.
The layout of this theme was designed efficiently, so you can use the space between different elements to include your banners, and by default there are 5 banner spots in the theme, but of course, thanks to the numerous widgetized areas, you can easily increase that number.
