Based on the incredibly popular theme from Elegant Themes called Divi, Extra is a drag and drop style magazine theme for WordPress, slick looking from any angle, built for providing fantastic user experience for any blogger who wants to make a real statement with their online magazine or media website. Extra is unique, it’s well made and the drag and drop feature actually makes building your site fun, since you are able to control every aspect of the design. But don’t worry, you don’t need to enroll in code school to get your site up and running, this template makes it a breeze to get started.
Why is this such a great WordPress theme for building an online magazine or news site? Well, we’ve mentioned the drag and drop interface so you can engineer the layout you want to have with dozens of different content module types, so you get what you want, where you want it, every single time. That’s good. But there’s also the ability to create custom color schemes, alter typography with a few clicks, you can make video and image galleries to show off your high-res digital content in style. You’ll have every opportunity to ensure that this theme, and the subsequent website you build with it, look precisely right for your brand.
Those 40 or so content modules and ready to power your site to new heights. Create a standard news story with video or images to help tell the story, plug in advertisements where you need them to monetize your site (even place ads in your stream of content, no more relegating your advertising to sidebars and footer widgets.) You can create a powerful and motivating call to action button to turn your readers into customers, add modules to support parallax and video backgrounds and the navigation is splendid. eCommerce is supported too, so you can sell products online in a safe, secure way. So, Extra is a powerhouse theme for magazines and newspapers, but I think the design is good enough that it would be pretty ideal for a personal blog site too.
