Latest Magazine Themes for WordPress

Share this:

A magazine theme turns your WordPress site into a powerhouse for content delivery. Rather than displaying blog posts or articles in the order they’re posted, magazine themes utilize categories to place the most important content on the front page. This improves the usability of sites with large amounts of content and encourages visitors to spend more time reading and sharing.

These latest WordPress magazine themes offer layouts that make it much easier to organize, display and promote your most popular and relevant content.

Free Themes

You can apply any of these themes to your current WordPress site for free. Each one can be found in the official WordPress theme directory.

Urban Lite

With a responsive design and multiple blocks for pictures and text, Urban Lite is an eye-catching theme that mimics a contemporary magazine. Navigation includes top and bottom menus along with space for widgets in the sidebar and footer.



A grid of images grabs attention when you use the Queue theme for your site. Images decrease in size from left to right, allowing you to organize content by order of importance. Post titles and text appear in clean columns beneath the image header so that all headlines appear above the fold.



The layout of Gazette relies largely on images to convey information about your content. This minimalist theme uses a flexible grid style that includes a stunning visual header space to showcase the best of your blog or news site.


Clesar Media

You get three different clean, modern layout options with Clesar Media: full width, sidebar to the right and sidebar to the left. Each includes a slider displayed underneath the top menu that shows popular posts in different categories.
