We have seen many news and magazine templates with basic layout and they just gives you regular blog features. But, this WordPress theme is cloned from the professional news agency websites so you can get exactly the same look from big news portals. You are not going to hire programmer or spend lots of time to create interactive homepage. The built-in contents will do most of the job from customization to content presentation.
Widget Grid System : Advanced Magazine WP theme is made for beginners as well as professional content writers. You are just going to publish articles and it will take care of layouts and design setup. The demo shows that homepage is given a lots of widget space so you can add slider, custom categories, banners and other stuff. The widgetized homepage blocks are truly flexible to move around in any order.
HappyThemes has developed unique custom widgets so that you never have to worry about homepage setup or customization. Once you drag and drop featured posts widgets then you can choose categories, title and layouts. The homepage featured posts are displayed in different style which depends on the number of posts displayed in each widget block.
