The 60 Best Free WordPress Magazine Themes

As you have probably heard by now, the new default theme for WordPress is a magazine theme.

While making the new default theme a magazine-style design was an interesting and welcome move, of course it still might not suite your tastes exactly, even if you happen to be looking for a magazine-style theme.

But worry not, we’ve got 60 great free alternatives for you. You’re bound find at least one that will do for you what the new TwentyFourteen theme might not.

Happy downloading.

  1. Hi Joe,

    thanks for this fantastic collection of free magazine WordPress themes and we really appreciate that you did also mention our MH Magazine lite WordPress theme. ;-)

    Kind Regards
    Michael

  2. Dear Joe,
    thank you for your inspiring collection! A number of your featured templates I already have chosen for a “Wunderkammer” article about free responsive WordPress themes as well. Ascetica for example. And Sampression. They are beautiful. I will see if I can find new themes in your selection, that match my “Wunderkammer” criteria.
    CustomCommunity in your list is outdated, it´s not fully responsive. A new version is announced.

    Yours
    Granaton

  3. Thanks, Joe. With all these great free themes, the hard part is which to choose! I really appreciate the work that you have done in this post. I really like your blog as well as all the word press themes.

    Thanks & Keep up the good work!
