WordPress magazine themes become handy when one publishes frequently or has already a large number of articles.
Such templates can present more content to the visitor on a single page; the eye is automatically drawn to interesting headlines in bold. You can also manage your different articles in an advanced way: it allows you to sort them by genre as well as by categories. For example paper journals with an editorial note, comparative articles, news, are added to the classic “new article, new page, new portfolio.”
Generally each type of article reveals specific options like the editor’s note which would be added in a corner of the front page image. This will allow you to organize your site and classify its items in the best possible way. You will no longer have to choose between article or page. New items are added automatically when they are released and everything is perfectly orchestrated. Even if some of the authors publish daily.
These WordPress magazine themes are the logical continuation of a successful, yet overflowing blog and will undoubtedly lower your bounce rate. Like many Premium themes but especially with magazine themes, the banner management here is useful. You can even change a whole category at one go. You have to take this practical side into account when you see it will save you from having to change 80 articles one by one, merely when an advertiser decides to suspend its campaign.
