What’s New?

Responsive Design

Magazinum responsive

Many of you asked us to make this theme responsive a lot of times, so I’m pretty sure that you already know what this feature means, and you don’t need any extra explanations.
You can see in the demo how the theme adapts to different screen resolution for specific devices. Test-drive the theme.


New Light Skin

magazinum-light

During the last 3 years (yes, this theme was released in 2010) we’ve seen a lot of creative modifications of Magazinum theme. One of the most popular modification applied by our customers to this theme was related to the theme’s header area. The new Light Skin that we’ve added in the new version will give your theme a refreshed look, without having to change a single line of code in the theme.


Slideshow & Carousel re-written. Video API Integrated

Adding the responsive feature in this theme required us to also update the jQuery libraries used for features like the Slideshow or Carousel. Beside this we’ve also integrated the Slideshow with YouTube and Vimeo API, so you can offer a better experience to your visitors when they want to play a video directly in the slideshow. Videos will now pause if the user clicks on a different slide and in case the “auto-rotate” feature is enabled, and user starts playing a video, the slideshow will also pause, so user can watch the video until the end.

Another new feature is that now you can display more than 10 posts in the Slideshow, without breaking the layout and having all posts displayed in a long vertical list. Now you can split posts in pages in the Slideshow, and from the Theme Options simply select how many posts should be visible per page in the Slideshow.


… and many other improvements

Beside the above-mentioned features, we’ve also fixed other minor bugs, made several improvements to the theme’s appearance. Another modification was the theme width: it was widened, and now the Sidebar can easily fit advertising banners with the width of 300px.


Planning to update from an older version?
You can download the new versions in Members Dashboard.
If you haven’t made any modifications to your theme files, then you can overwrite your old version with the new one.
If you have made modifications to your theme, then you’ll need to follow this tutorial for more instructions, but we’d highly recommend installing the new update as a separate theme, as most of the theme files were modified, and there is no list of modified files in the new version.
Don’t forget to run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin after upgrading to the new version.


For more detailed features, see the theme’s page or check out the live demo of this theme.

  • We make top menu sticky in this theme?

  • Te salut Pavel. Observ ca esti moldovean de-ai nostri si din acest motiv scriu in limba romana.Felicitari pentru site si pentru teme! Nu credeam ca unul de-ai nostri poate sa realizeze teme atat de frumoase! Am sa iti dedic un articol pe unul dintre site-urile mele cu siguranta. Si eu sunt pasionat – in pofida varstei – de temele WP si de crearea lor. Sunt inca in stadiul de invatacel…Am observat preturile temelor si imi permit sa-ti spun ca mi se par cam mari. Eu folosesc framework-ul Genesis care si el a costat destul (daca e sa adaug si cele cateva teme pe care le-am achizitionat ulterior)..
    Inca o data felicitari si sa auzim de bine! Oricum voi reveni pe site-ul tau! Succes in continuare!

  • Great theme! Always looking for magazine themes that can organize a lot of content types and still look good.

  • This is what I am looking for my client magazine site. Thanks much!
