Delicious Magazine

$75

Looking for a clean and sophisticated magazine theme? Delicious Magazine is versatile enough to be used for a variety of purposes, like a food website as we’ve demonstrated on our preview. It includes a big featured area that captivates the user with large images, and also a sub featured spotlight area that makes your homepage look like more than a blog.

Easy to Customize

Delicious Magazine comes with an extensive set of theme options that make it easy to fit Delicious Magazine to your site’s unique personality. From Appearance → Theme Options you can set the color scheme of your site with one click and also take total control of the animated Featured Post slideshow. You can even choose to have your sidebar on the left or right side of your site.

9 Exciting Color Schemes

As noted above, Delicious Magazine has multiple color schemes—9 of them! Just one more feature that can help make Delicious Magazine the perfect fit for your site.

Two Customizable Menus

Delicious Magazine also has two menu areas: a traditional page menu and a second (optional) top menu. You can take control of these two areas in Appearance → Menus by creating your own custom menus and assigning them to either menu location.
