yes, this is one of the development progress that were included when the redesign began whether i will offer a premium paid theme so be sure to get back to the site to check on the release soon.

Magazine style/layout wordpress themes will be in top of the chart that will soon available. Also Newspaper Grid Style wordpress themes will be following the development.

As you may know, there are some difference between magazine and newspaper style layout, i will be venture deeper into how to define or make good used or the layout to separate both style distinct styling. If you not sure what i’m blabbing about, here are some good example to separate what make the layout define as magazine style and vice versa.

Good Example Of Magazine Layout Style

As you can see, the people magazine main grid will be 3 column frontpage with very catchy headlines. Some may missed what exactly a magazine stlye is about..its all about showtime!…or you may called it THE IT PRESENTATION. Good used of variant colours will be the strong point of how a magazine layout should look like.

The intention of the layout will be to give a visitor a first glance on what’s the latest news and the usage of block element in the layout will be essential, as you can see:

left-block – an exclusive cover and charting article that open the visitors first scan when they visited the site

Center-block – a featured or latest feature post that had a different colour block than other to make it more stand out than other articles block.

right-block – a goodies (sidebars) or ads on other aside articles to make the site more alive something like most popular post or most commented post are very good example what to insert in this section.

Be sure not to missed couple of this element when making yourself a magazine style theme. “More from this, features in this, latest in this, checkout this and many catchy headline” will be one of the headline strong point on how to define that it is near a magazine style.

What About Newspaper Style layout?

ok first of all what is a newspaper? its all about information baby 🙂 yeah. If you need to define a difference between a magazine layout and newspaper layout, it will be the selling point of make it as busy as you can before it suited as newspaper style theme. Forget about white space and try to make the frontpage as content wise as possible. A newspaper design should and always be content presentation first, you may make the site looks more modern with latest design trends, web2.0 element and some art element but you should put content based layout before starting the idea.

One of the key element on newspaper style layout would be the separate in-categories. This is a good example of newspaper to present their articles or post within and difference category so it won’t miss the visitors’s scan when they glance on the site. Of course image/photos presentation will also be the strong element cannot be missed but you should used it wisely, make good used of thumbnail features.

WordPress As Directory….this is still under development

Yeap…wordpress as directory also one of the in development that were include in the late 2007, basically the idea was to provide a more comfortable directory submit using wordpress core. this is of course just an idea and will be makng it appearence soon in the future. 🙂
