HitMag is a clean and flexible WordPress Theme by ThemezHut. HitMag is perfect if you are looking for a newspaper, magazine, or a modern blog layout. A magazine-style homepage layout is available, which allows you to utilize a slideshow for your featured posts and several sections for your different categories. HitMag is responsive/mobile-ready, and best of all, it is free! There is also a paid HitMag Pro version of the WordPress Theme with added features and functionality.
The HitMag Homepage Widget Area allows you to use up to three Posts Widgets to show your Posts by category in a magazine or newspaper style site format. Beyond the Homepage layout, there are four additional Post layouts you can use to display your articles, news, and content. These layout styles include a two-column grid layout, a three-column gird layout, a list layout, and also a layout for large posts.
The Homepage also includes an image slider that allows you to chose the most recent posts or latest posts from a category to appear on your site’s main page. The title of the post, category, published date, author, and comment indicator all overlay the bottom portion of the featured image. Thumbnail navigation is included at the bottom of the image slider.
Additional useful features include social sharing and the author box layout at the bottom of every post. There are also three footer widget areas to expand the flexibility and functionality of the HitMag WordPress Theme. The live customizer is handy as well, enabling you to quickly upload your logo, change the main color of the layouts, and add custom CSS.
