Video duration: 0s 1h 18m Beginner


This installment of Start with a Theme explains how to set up an online magazine using WordPress and three different themes that result in three completely different looks—without getting bogged down in code. Author Morten Rand-Hendriksen helps you get your WordPress site up and running quickly, and add the additional authors (or bylines) and standard content typical of any online magazine. He then illustrates the benefits and drawbacks of each of the three free themes, Max Magazine, Path, and Oxygen, and shows how to install and tweak their unique settings.

Topics include:
  • Adding content
  • Providing roles and access levels for multiple authors
  • Setting up an about page and a contact form
  • Installing and activating each theme
  • Customizing themes
  • Using custom Max Magazine widgets
  • Setting up the Oxygen front page
  • Configuring widgets and menus in Path
  • Getting the word out with social media sharing
