I don’t know about you but I am a big fan of magazine themes. You don’t necessarily have to own an established online magazine to use them. When you are starting your journey as a content publisher, the main challenges are to produce high quality content and grab the attention of your visitors. Themes such as Reader can help you with the second part of the process.
The Reader theme has quite an interesting design. We did like the colorful look. It is great for news sites with a ton of visual content to share. The default font was not something we appreciated but that can be changed easily as long as you know your CSS. The theme comes bundled with the Visual Composer tool with many shortcodes for you to choose from.
Reader is optimized for higher resolution displays. It has a responsive design. The theme has boxed and wide layouts. Want to use this theme to create a review site? No problem. The review system uses Schema.org rich snippets, which is a plus. Reader is ready to be fully localized.
Reader is a pretty decent looking theme for news magazines, tech blogs, and product review sites. It is WooCommerce ready, responsive , and compatible with BuddyPress. There is a lot to like about this theme.
