By March 19, 2014Wordpress Themes

Here are the best WordPress Themes we’ve chose with the right designs and features for news and magazines, so your content gets read, visitors stay, and ad revenue is maximized.

There’s no better online news, media, and magazine publishing software than WordPress.  From CNN to MTV and even the New York Times, the biggest news and magazine websites rely on WordPress to deliver the hottest news to billions. Whether if it’s the latest iPhone rumor, geopolitics, or celebrity gossip, WordPress allows teams of journalists, editors, and writers to publish easily and effectively.

But as anyone with a blog knows, your site’s theme (design, layout, features) makes all the difference.  Especially with your news or magazine site with tons of amazing content, a great WordPress theme means your pile of content is well organized and easy for readers to find.  Meanwhile, a bad design means no one finds the content your team put so much effort into, and even though you broke the news, no one knows you did.

We carefully chose these WordPress Themes for News that has several critical features for news and magazine sites with loads of content.  Features include eye-catching homepages with engaging thumbnail layouts.  Well organized display of content, not cluttered.  Responsive design is a must, so your site looks perfect on any mobile device and any screen size.  Easy, flexible layouts to move around feature content the way you want.  Unlimited font, color, and background customizations to match your brand and style perfectly.  Plenty of ad spaces to generate the most revenue from your sponsors.  Also, several of these themes comes packed with review rating features.
