So what features come standard with this magazine WordPress theme
The theme includes all the cool functions we have come to expect from any paid premium theme, only now you can have it for free, here’s the short list:
Advance edit options allows users to edit the style without learning or knowing CSS. You can even change the header image without touching a line of code, all from the options page.
Featured-regular post option by simply creating/adding your post under a category called “Featured” and coded to be Search Engine Friendly (optimized).
Second level, conditional and dropdown menus! No set up required, just add categories and sub-categories and you are good to go.
Widget ready sidebars and is pre-styled for Google Adsense/affiliate ads.
All ads are in their own files, so editing a file to add advertisement codes is a no brainer, so even novice users can manage their sites (on their own) like pros.
Stylish comments area, encourages user to participate. Change the background colors if you like, all from the options page.
