People have been asking me to create a Magazine-style theme, as well as a 3-column theme, for some time now. With TheSource I hope to satisfy those many users. TheSource is a Magazine-style theme that combines flashiness with sophistication. The goal behind this theme was to create a design that could display loads of content in an organized and visually pleasing manner. The three-column grid gives you increased control over your layout, and the full-width homepage slider creates a visual impact that is sure to peek your visitor’s interest. For more information you can view the Live Demo, or visit the Features Page.
TheSource Features Overview
1. Four Unique Colorschemes – If you don’t like the standard Dark color of TheSource, then you may enjoy the alternate/lighter Grey, Blue and Red versions.
2. Three-column Layout – TheSource features a three-column layout, which gives you plenty of room to manage your sidebar widgets.
3. Widgetized Footer – The footer of TheSource has been widgetized and separated into 4 columns, giving you plenty of widget-ready room for all of your favorite plugins.
4. Homepage Category Boxes – These four boxes feature the latest posts from your favorite categories on the homepage.
I think the design turned out great, but be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Looking to the Future
In the near future, along with creating great new themes, I will be focusing on improving theme functionality through the addition of Custom Shortcodes and Page Templates. With loads of shortcodes and page templates to choose from, managing your blog’s design will be quick and easy. My question for you is: What shortcodes and page templates would you most like to see? If you have a request, now is the time to let me know!
