We have been talking about this theme for over a month and now finally it's here. mag.Press is a new 'Magazine' theme from Obox, joining the likes of our two best sellers InkDrop and Press.
New core theme
mag.Press will form the base for all future WordPress products to come from Obox, affectively making this our first framework theme. Items such as widgets will be updated here first and then carried over to future themes.
Multiple home page widgets
mag.Press comes packed with some nifty new widgets which can be implemented on the home page:
Also incorporated in the front end is a new sidebar video widget and share buttons in each post. The Post page is our most comprehensive yet and will continue to grow with some cool features.
Introducing the OCMX Typography Manager
When creating this theme the item that topped our list was the word 'customizability'. This theme had to be easy to modify not only from a coding stand point but also from the control panel.
This lead to a comprehensive rethink of our font and color styling is managed in a WordPress Theme.
The result is the new OCMX Typography Manager which allows you to select between 36 standard and Google fonts and also choose your desired color and font size with a neat slide controller.
Included in the mangaer is an 'Overview' tab which allows you to get an idea of how your style selection looks in combination with each other thereby allowing you to get the right balance between the elements.
Feel free to take this new theme for a test drive on our demo page or watch the video below to see the Type Manager in action! We have no doubt that you will be quite impressed by this new machine :)
