ZinePress: A WordPress Magazine Theme

I am very pleased to announce the official release of my latest WordPress theme; ZinePress.

ZinePress isn’t really an overcomplicated magazine theme, but she’s not exactly a run-of-the-mill blog design either.  My goal with this design was to create a theme that could present oodles of information to the visitor in a straight forward and non-threatening way.  It’s some of my proudest work and I hope you like it.

Live Demo

Like what you see?  Be sure to check out the live demo to see ZinePress in all her glory!

Cross Browser Compatible

I’ve tried my darndest to make ZinePress play nice with all the major players.  The following  browsers have been personally verified by yours truly: Internet Explorer 6.0+, Firefox 2+, Opera 9+, Safari 3+ and Chrome 0.2+!

Widget Ready

Yep, this baby is widgetized!  There are sidebar and footerbar widgets.  Also, there are optional widgets for advertisements in the header and sidebar (if you’re into that kind of the thing).  See the readme file for instructions.

WordPress Compatibility

I’ve only tested this theme on WordPress Version 2.6 & 2.7.  I’m willing to bet it is compatible with older versions, but to be safe use at least WordPress Version 2.7.

Of Course It Validates!

What do you take me for?  ZinePress was coded by hand and has valid XHTML Strict 1.0 and CSS Level 2.1.


This is a free theme.  You may use, alter, tweak, tamper, modify and mangle it to your liking.  But please leave the footer links in tact.  I know it sucks, but it really helps me out as a more-or-less completely unknown designer.  Thank you kindly.

Gimme Gimme!

Without further ado…

  1. Hello, great theme! Free to boot, thank you!

    I have run into one minor issue, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

    On my blog I am using Text widgets. I can’t figure out how to change the CSS for those widgets. I have been over the Zine Press CSS backwards and forwards. I have made many changes so I know my way around, but I can’t find the CSS for the Text Widget? Is it in the WordPress CSS, if so were?

    Template is great thanks, just can’t figure out this last piece to to puzzle?
