MiniMagazine is our yet another magazine/news theme with clean and minimalistic look. Your initial impression might be that this is not an advanced theme that usually comes out of Templatic’s den but that’s where the real catch is. This magazine theme is actually very ‘different’. Combining simplicity and advanced blogging to create something you can actually use to make a quick magazine site.
Some of the standard + unique feature include:
5 detailed color schemes
Super clean layout
Built in 8 Page Templates
Integrated 30 Shortcodes
Design settings panel
And many more regular features
The design settings panel will let you configure many settings to customize the theme. You can change the background color, link color, hover color, etc, and the best part is, you can do all of this without even touching a single line of code.
It comes in 2 base color variations – Dark and Light. Take a look at the links below and choose your style.
Note: If you are using WebHosting theme, then you don’t need to follow this guide. Shortcodes are already included in WebHosting theme. If you are using any other theme, then follow this tutorial.
Templatic offers a new feature called shortcodes whereby you can add different style and layout to your content. This quick tutorial will explain how you can add shortcode functionality to your existing Templatic theme.
First click here and download this ZIP file and extract its contents.
Place the ‘shortcodes-style.css’ file in the theme’s root directory (basically in the same folder where ‘style.css’ is.)
Open ‘style.css’ in a text-editor and add the following code at the top: /* Import Shortcodes CSS */
Save the ‘style.css’ file.
Now place the shortcodes.php file in /library/functions/ directory (basically in the same folder where custom_functions.php is)
Open custom_functions.php in a text-editor and add the following code at the top, just after the ‘<php': (Add this code in second line) include("shortcodes.php");
Save the custom_functions.php file.
Finally copy all the images from the ‘shortcode images’ folder into the /images/ folder of your theme E.g. the path will be wp-content/wikibase/images, you need to add all these images here. Now you are ready to use the shortcodes.
You may have noticed that there has been slight delay in the themes being released recently. That is because we’ve been adding stability to the business and kind of in-house reformation which will be visible to everyone in coming days. Good news is, we should be releasing 3 brand new themes in next 4 weeks.
