Thesis 2 has been around for a few months already. It has gone through major changes and feels a lot different from Thesis 1.8.x. While I am not a big fan of some of the changes, Thesis 2 still remains an attractive WordPress framework for developers and webmasters. Many webmasters use Thesis for blog sites. But you could do a whole lot more with it. Here are 3 themes you can use to adopt Thesis for your magazine site:
Quik: the theme is compatible with Genesis and Thesis 2. It is fully responsive and has completely editable templates. It has multiple article sliders and 6 color schemes.
Magazine for Thesis 2: a good looking magazine theme for Thesis. It is fully responsive and has 18 custom widgets. You get a gallery template too. 15 shortcodes are available also.
Myre for Thesis: another premium skin for Thesis. It works for personal and business sites. The theme has 13 custom templates and 14 custom widgets. You get 3 types of sliders too. You may have to tweak this a bit to get it working for your magazine site.
You could always make your own child themes. It will take some time and effort though. The above themes are helpful for those of you who need to take your Thesis 2 site live fast.
